VERSION 4.1.2 RELEASED - prepare for real revolution in tags!

What this mod do:
Each time new post arrives (as new thread or reply) this mod will automatically add tags according to post content, title and existing tags in forum. It will also automatically add new tags to old threads.

In details:
It will add only tags which already exists in your forum if it will be included in your post title or content.

It works simple - if title or content includes tag word, then tag will be added to this thread.
Simple and fast. And also have lot of sophisticated functionalities - see below

In more details :
I.e. if you already have in forum such tags as autohypnosis, hypnosis, nlp, and submodalities. Now someone will write post like this (as reply or new thread):

Title: Hello NLP fans
Content: I like to use autohypnosis!

So this mod will automatically add for thread where post is written such tags: autohypnosis, nlp

nlp - cause it is in title; autohypnosis - cause it is in content

hypnosis is included in word autohypnosis, but this mod is smart enough to see that there is no separate word hypnosis neither in title nor in content - so it is not added
submodalities and any other existing tag is not added here, cause it is not included either in content or title of new post.

In more details with sophisticated functionalities :
Also this mod will add tags propositions for each word existing in post title which is not a tag yet. So for this example 2 tags propositions will be added: hello and fans.
You can approve tags propositions manually or set quarantine time after which propositions will automaticaly change to tags.

This mod allows you to define related words for each tag. It means that now tag word don't have to be included in post - it is enough if any of related words is included to add tag
I.e. if you have tag cat then you can define for it related words like: cats,kitty,kitties,lion,tiger. Now if any of those words appears in post then tag cat will be added

This is really great if you want have tag added no matter does word will be used singular or plural, or in which time it will be or maybe in your language you have to inflect words. Like in Polish we have: krowa, krowy, krowie, krową - for same word krowa. Now no matter how is inflected tag word in post and no matter in which language is your forum - this mod will appropriately add this tag!

You can also use this functionality to define tag packs. I.e. I want that every time when someone is writing about hypnosis or trans, booth hypnosis and trans tags to be added. In such case I simply define trans as related word for hypnosis tag and hypnosis as related word for trans tag

This mod also allows you to set default tags for forum. So each new and old thread in forum will be tagged by those tags It could be very useful - for example I have forum with good news and I want each thread in this forum to be tagged by newspaper, and news - so I simply write it in forum configuration and mod cares about everything! Is it great or just amazing?

Also with this mod You can just click one link in menu and it will add tags to all already existing threads. So If you was happy that now all new posts will be properly tagged, I have great news for you - now all threads will be properly tagged - even old one

Also every day this mod will automatically check does some new tags appears and in such case it will add new tags to all already existing threads which includes this keyword in content or title. So now not only all threads will be properly tagged for moment when you use functionality described above. It will keep all tags in all threads up to date continuously



Features:
  • Automatically adds tags to new posts/threads according to content, title and already existing tags in forum.
  • Allows you to set default tags for forum and will create those tags if don't exists
  • Tags related words functionality
  • Automatically creates tags propositions according to posts titles for words which are not tags yet

  • Configurable set of ignored words during tags propositions creation
  • Allows you to create tags propositions from all posts titles
  • You can configure this mod to work only for new threads, or for each post - even replies.
  • Sophisticated keyword searching (will not add as tags words included in other words)
  • Configurable words separators for sophisticated searching
  • Automatically adds new tags to old threads (daily)
  • Allows you to add tags to all threads
  • Allows you to clear all tags associations to threads

  • Respects Maximum Tags per Thread setting
  • Gives you alias to set native vBulletin Maximum Tags per Thread setting in one menu with other settings of this mod
  • Version checking supported
And commercial :
It is very useful for everyone who wants to keep an eye on tags, and doesn't want just each word from title automatically added.

So with this mod you know that only valuable tags are automatically added.

In some languages (like mine - Polish) same word is different according to whole sentence - i.e. in English is just cow and cows - in Polish we have: krowa, krowy, krowie, krową... And I didn't want all of those to make garbage of my tags, so I was not able to mod which was just adding every word which appears in title - it was too weak for me. I really wan to have only valuable tags ant that’s why I created this mod
Also with this mod thanks to related words functionality I'm sure that tag will be added no matter in which person, time or quantity the tag word is used in post! And also allows me to create groups of related tags!

When I wrote post I just to add tags myself, but also had to do this for other users who just add post and doesn't care about tags.
You know that? Now this mod will do it for you and also you will forget about tags writing, because after some time in most forums new tags are very rare, and mostly are used tags which already exist.

It was very important for me to have such solution and I want to share Enjoy!

Hello

Content of this post will change in time, because it will summarize most common questions/issues, presented by users. So If you don't feel happy to read whole discussion - here you have shortcut

1. On which vB versions it will work?
It is tested for 3.8.2 but can work on other versions. For older vB versions you have to modify product file and set minversion="3.8.2" to your version. Right now it is confirmed to work on vB versions:
- 3.8.0
- 3.8.2
- 3.8.3
Please confirm other versions

2. Will this mod work with Persian(Farsi), Arabic or any other language?
Yes. I have confirmed that it works with Arabic, and should with any other
Already confirmed languages:
- Arabic
- English
- Polish
I will be grateful if you confirm other languages - it will help the others who are thinking about, install this mod
Also will motivate me to give you more great plugins

3. How this mod adds new tags? I don't want to have garbage in my tags...
Remember - creating new tag and assigning it to thread those are 2 different things.
This mod NEVER creates new tags directly, so it will never mess up your tags. Automatic creation of new tags is fast way to have garbage in tags.
This mod only assigns already existing tags to threads - new and old one. It will assign a tag to thread if this thread contains tag keyword in content or title of any of its posts (or first one - it's configurable).
It will also create tags propositions for each word in post title which is not tag yet. You can manage those propositions and approve it or dissaprove. Propositions are not viwible by any user! You can manage those only in Admin CP.
Such way You define what is important for you by creating tags (and you do it only once per tag), and this mod assures you that whenever people are writing about any of important things - those threads will be appropriately tagged
No automat can decide for you what is important - so this mod says: "You are the master my lord - just tell me what's important and I'm gonna fallow your orders".
Note that you are able to configure tags propositions for automatic approve after quarantine time if you want.

4. How can I create new tags?
You can create new tags in 6 ways.
1st when you create new post and suspect that some important keyword doesn’t exists as tag yet - then you just add it when write a post. After that this mod will add new tags to all appropriate threads.
2nd when you already created post and see that something what you expected to exist as tag really doesn't - then just add tag for this thread. After that this mod will add new tags to all appropriate threads.
3rd in AdminCP -> Thread Tagger -> Tags Related Words -> Add Tag
4th you can manually approve tags propositions what will change those to tags
5th you can set quarantine time after which tags propositions will be automatically approved and changed to tags
6th allow old thread tagger to create new tags. This is also a way, but it will make a garbage in your tags, since you will have absolutely no control what is added as new tag.

Note - no matter which way you use mod will work. You just have to create tags - mod will assign those to threads. 2 first ways already assign tag to one thread (mod will assign it to rest), 3rd way only create tag without any assignment - also mod will take care of this 4th allows you easly response for new posts content. 5th and 6th are messy and not advised.

5. How much work I will have with tags creation?
It depends of your forum. You don't have to set all possible tags at once. You can add new whenever are needed - mod will handle this At my forum which is about 2 main topics (nlp and hypnosis), when I started to use tags, after few posts I was mainly adding same tags over and over again. That's why I created this mod. Add tag once, and let mod to assign it where it's appropriate.
Right now when tags proposal are rated automatically it can be few clicks

6. Do I have to create all tags myself?
Of course no - some of your users for sure cares about tags and add those. As owner you probably know what keywords are most important and which should exists as tags, so it is wise to add it. But as I already wrote you can add new ones whenever you want - this mod will assign it to old threads where is appropriate. If you want to have full tag control you can also limit other users and take theme right to create new tags (in Usergroup Manager) - it is up to you. You are the master here Of course you can also allow the old tagger mod to be master and automatically add every word from title, but this way you finish with lot of garbage. One more time - it's up to you which way you prefer

7. How this mod differs from old thread tagger mod?
This mod never creates new tags directly - only assigns existing tags to threads.
This mod creates for you tags propositions according to posts titles - you can approve or disapprove those manually or set quarantine time after which will be automatically approved.
This mod parses not only title but also content of post.
This mod works not only for first post, but for all posts in thread (you can configure it).
This mod adds you such funtionalities as tag related words, forum default tags, and many others

8. When this mod adds new tags to old posts?
It is scheduled and executed daily

9. I approved some of tags propositions - what now?
For you it's everything Whenever tag proposition is approved (manually or after quarantine time) it automatically becomes tag. So it will be assigned just when scheduled job for new tags will be executed. If you want you can run it manually from Admin CP, but it is not necessary because it is executed daily

If it works with Ajax (unlike the other auto thread tagger), I'll try it. Somebody else go first.

No - it just add new tags when post is send - no Ajax here
Thanks that it is fast and able to parse whole (even long) post - not only title

Also - I made it mostly thinking about forum users who don’t think about tags So they don't care at all about seeing tags with Ajax feature - they don't care about tags at all. And good - cause now cares this mod!

So you still can try this one

No, you misunderstand. I wasn't asking for Ajax. The problem with the other thread tagger is it breaks the functionality of other Ajax mods. Specifically, the one I linked to in the other thread.

Works well, you just need to establish your tags yourself and then it will search for them and add them after every new post

So - this one will not break any Ajax functionality of any other mod, because it doesn't use Ajax and works on server side
