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.
