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.

Nice work.

I had been using the manual install method for this mod, but the latest 3.7.2 broke when I added it in after I updated my forum yesterday.

However installing this product version works perfectly on 3.7.2 and I've had no problems.

Why not release this product as it's own mod and give tribute to this original manual mod? That way members would be able to find this much easier solution (no need to manual edit the files after every vB update).

I completely agree... I almost didn't see the XML file Noodles uploaded, so I was about to miss out on installing it.



EDIT:
Where in the AdminCP do I configure settings for this mod? I can't find it anywhere.

Thanks in advance for any help
