vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (5 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 34
Released: 07 Oct 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 125
Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

For a while I have had a VB3 Version of this mod out that was only partly compatible with VB4. This new version is designed around VB4 from the ground-up and has more features.

Version 0.9 Beta
I consider this a "stable beta" release. You should not get any errors but I am keeping it in Beta until it is proven reliable on other forums. If you run into any issues please report them here. Please be sure to include your exact VB version in any report.

Live Demo Available At: Qapla.com Demo Forums

This mod was the idea of "zethon" another vBulletin.org coder who asked me to code this.

The purpose of this mod is to make it easier for users to tag threads with relevant keywords. Although VB allows for thread tags very few people will take the time to properly tag a thread. They have to remember to go to another box and add keywords, separate them by commas, and only then finally submit the thread. VB4 made adding additional keywords even more annoying.

But if you give people an easier way to tag threads they will use the feature much more. One of the more common ways of tagging keywords is "hash" tagging, that is preceding the word with a "hash" or "number-sign" (#example #keywords).

This has become popular with Twitter and for many people it is already second nature so many people will naturally jump right in to this new tagging method.

NOTE: If you have the VB3 Version of this mod installed you MUST UNINSTALL IT before installing this one. They will conflict if both are installed together.

You should also code a twitter like @user tagging system that notifies them when they get tagged. DBTech made a modification like that but I like your work

From what I see if the server or php installation is configured with arabic as the language, this mod should work as is... but if English is the language of the server then it will only work with English.

This is because the regex used to match words will match the characters for the server language.

If anyone has a regular expression to match all Arabic characters I'll add it to the mod though.

I kept getting this error when posting.

Tags cannot be overly common words
Except now tags were being added. Any advise?

Nice work!

A few suggestions which come into my mind:

Would it be hard to implement a method which replaces the #hash words with actual links to the tag? It seems a bit weird to have #some words in a #post look like this without actually doing something.

Also: Maybe it would be a good idea to add an escape mechanism to the system. Lets say, all #hash tags which have a \ before like \#this don't count as tags. For example in a coding forum:

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

Would create the hashtag #include where it probably shouldn't.

Go to the Plugin Manager in Admin CP and edit ALL 3 plugins.

In each find this line:


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

and change it to:


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

Then it will work with slashes (/).

The links to tags was something I was considering... or perhaps removing # after it was posted... will see- it's more complex code for sure.

A means to disable it is a good idea, especially in CODE blocks would be very useful... but seeing \#word looks even more annoying then #word... Maybe I can disable it per post, will think about this too for the next version.
