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.

That's not quite accurate - it may not work with your 3.7.1, but it works just fine with mine

I've converted it to a product as I don't like doing code modifications (especially when vbulletin is upgrading every other month).

Should work with 3.7.x (tested with 3.7.1)

Noodles, you are THE man!

Hopefully this is 'added' to the actual first post so that we can keep this hack 'updated'.

I just need to be able to do it with RSS Feeds then it will be perfect and I could install it on another few sites which would benefit from it greatly.
Oh this would be an outstanding addition.

Thank you for this modification!

It adds the tags from the RSS feed titles, however, they don't actually work as links...

ALSO, any way to add the functionality where it goes back through each thread and tags based on title? I see the automatic post by NOODLES, but I can't see how it works exactly? I don't know where it is located?

Just installed the xml for this and it doesn't appear it is capturing keywords from RSS titles. Is it supposed to?

I think you can remove some errors with an extra check:


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

This way it doesnt try to process blank taglists.

Note: Didnt see the plugin before making this suggestion.

I've decided to uninstall this mod. I think it's a great idea, but I'm just not getting the results I desired. In 95% of my threads it misses the point of the title, and I end up with a tag cloud looking like. ex. this, his, thus, etc etc etc. Hopefully it can be optimized.
