Description

With vBulletin tags you can either set to require tags be completed or not. However requiring tags to be completed can easily result in low-quality tags that don't provide SEO value to your forum. With that in mind the thread title often provides better keywords than the tags that the user is forced to enter.

What this modification does is:

When a thread is started, has the user filled in tags?
Yes: Then we do nothing.
No: Then take the thread title, and strip out all words that would be invalid tags and are in the stop words list and use the remaining words as tags.

Example

User enters:
  • Thread title = We like the social group email mod
  • Thread tags =
vBulletin records the new thread as:
  • Thread title = We like the social group email mod
  • Thread tags = email, group, social
Which isn't an entirely bad set of tags and is better than none, and better than the user typing in gibberish (IMHO).

Installing

Installation REQUIRES FILE MODIFICATION. If you are not happy doing this, don't install this mod.

In the file /includes/functions_newpost.php

Find (near line 409):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace that with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Uninstalling

Open the file /includes/functions_newpost.php

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Delete everything up to:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Insert in that space:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Screenshots

Screenshots don't really make sense... read the description.

@buro9

mate do u familiar with AJAX?
I think will be better if it's AJAX based hack which takes the words from thread title immediately after we left the title field and put the suggestion in tags field.
So users will have possibility to edit unwanted tags.

masterross's idea is actually very, very cool.

That being said, installed and crossing fingers for some fancy ajax implementation

I have a weird question.


If I have tags off, will this still auto add them in the background, so to speak?

We're wanting to wait a bit to enable tags, but when we do, would this modification have been working in the background?


EDIT::

Found a work around for this. Thanks for the hack!

I would think there would have to be a one time maintenance utility that would be run. This mod would do tags going forward.

After Automatic Thread Tagger is dead - any chance to get a Update here with his Code to get a Modification without editing Files?

And yes i agree - we need a Script that Tags all old Threads.
