Automatic Thread Tagger


Description
When a user submits a new thread this modification will automatically take keywords from the thread title and use these as tags. You can use Automatic Thread Tagger to propose the user AJAX tags for his new thread, or it assigns new tags after saving the new thread. It can add the translated thread prefix to the tags.
Additionally, you can tag existing threads via maintenance and also scheduled tasks.

This modification is a successor to the terminated Automatic Thread Tagger by MrEyes:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=179927

As an example, if a user submits a thread with a title of:
"Fish Food for Cats!"

The thread will be automatically tagged with:

- Fish
- Food
- Cats

If the user also submits an actual tag of "Fish" this will not be duplicated. Any rules you have setup for tagging will be respected.
If you choose to do so this product will also automatically tag threads created by incoming RSS feeds.

Demo
I cannot show you the process of creation, but here is a list of tags generated by Auto Thread Tagger:
http://www.insideearth.net/tags.php?langid=5
http://www.insidesupcom.de/tags.php?langid=1


Automatic Tagging of existing threads
You can tag existing threads via maintenance or scheduled task/cron. They will be created with a special flag so they can be easily identified and deleted. Manual assigned tags are not touched. Maintenance is also working if Automatic Tagging is disabled via settings. Great if you want to test some settings. Automatic Tagging will take the date of the thread creation and also the userid of the creator. This process can be automated by running a scheduled job once a night.

Please keep in mind that tags that were proposed via AJAX are not tagged as auto tagged and therefore cannot be identified as such (and therefore not deleted automatically). If you want to retain the auto tagged flag you should disable AJAX and enable the tagging after the thread has been saved. As an alternative way you can also disable this and let new threads be tagged in the night from the scheduled job.


Installation / Upgrade
1. Upload all files from "upload" to your server, take care of the directory structure
2. Import "product-auto_thread_tagger110.xml" as a product, overwrite if it's already installed
3. Check settings
4. Run maintenance / Auto Tag Threads to tag existing threads (needed if you want to use the cron)

After install, and by default the modification is disabled, this will allow you to play around with configuration before switching it on.


Troubleshooting
If you report a bug please post the thread title that created it, without this I cannot test it and improve the language parsers.

* If no threads are tagged you will have to check the following:
- Is the modification enabled? Is the action you are testing enabled? (vBulletin tagging, whole auto thread tagger system, AJAX, new threads)
- Are the words you are using badwords or filtered out?

* Cron/Scheduled Task is not tagging all threads.
- The cron is limited to 500 (you can change this via settings) threads per run to avoid heavy impact on server. Make sure you run maintenance auto tagger before this to tag old threads. You can check the scheduled tasks log to see if it is running correctly.
Important: If a thread title does not meet minimum requirements to be included in tags (f.e. one word thread titles, too short words), it will be forever in this queue.

* I'm using polish, arabic, turkish, etc.. language and the tagger is not working like it should.
- If not already replaced, replace the filter replacement '&'=>'and' with ' & '=>'and' (a space before and after &)



Todo
What comes next? You decide. Tell me what you are missing and I'll look if it can be integrated.


Why thread title and not thread text?
Parsing the thread text for tags is an extremely unlikely addition as this would require some fairly heavy processing to ensure quality of tags.


What are Stopwords?
Stopwords is the name given to words which are filtered out prior to processing of tags.
The user Hostboard on vBulletin.org posted some resources regardings this:

I found a small issue:
You specified a tag that was too long. A tag can only be 25 characters.
My title was long, but the automatic tagger adds more than 25 characters.

Hi,

Is it possible to setup the MOD in order to pull key words from the post itself? I believe using only forum titles greatly reduces how relevant the actual tags are.

Which files do we need to edit and what do we do to them?

Any hints or ideas on what to do when it doesn't tag the RSS feeds? I've set the option to yes and filled in the information, however it never tags any incoming feed.

I just need to know if it has the same problem as the previous one where it would, apparently for no reason, tell people there were too many tags and stop their posts.

If this resolved that issue, then I'll probably install it.

1. You will notice in the "upload to ftp" folder in your download there is one autotagger_ajax.php that you would install to your forumhome. Inside that there is an "Includes" file and a .php. You would open your includes file on your server, open that file on your computer and transfer the one .php file into that. You will notice inside there, there is a "cron" folder. You would again open your "cron" folder on your server and the one on your computer and transfer the one .php file in there.

2. If you have never installed it before "allow rewrite" would be unnecessary. If you have and were upgrading you would need to select "allow rewrite" when you upload. If you forgot the first time, you would need to do it again. You install by going to products manager and click "upload/install new product" then clicking the "browse" button, installing the product onto your version of vBulletin.

I hope this helps you. (I haven't installed it yet, it was unpopular because of the "too many tags" that users kept getting. I realize now it was because I had limited them to 5. Is there a setting where it will only select the first "x" number of tags?)

I noticed that you said it now follows the limits on one of your updates... I guess I should read. Installed and working.

"4. Run maintenance / Auto Tag Threads to tag existing threads (needed if you want to use the cron)"
