Automatic Thread Tagger
This is the vB4 conversation of the original by Phalynx (with permission)

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
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.

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:

Edit: I can't seem to find this under my Maintenance tab in our AdminCP? Is it somewhere else?

4. Run maintenance / Auto Tag Threads to tag existing threads (needed if you want to use the cron)
It is there, the modification is working fine thanks

I was excited to see somebody recoded this. But am now kinda bummed that the support seems to be lacking.

I have vBSEO installed as well...and I guess i'll hold off installing until that bug is resolved.

maybe if we temporarily disable vbSEO before running the auto-tagging cron ?

I've not tested this, but would like to know what the conflict really is... The other poster only said there was a conflict, but never said what it was. Could be an easy fix.

I agree, sometimes people complain about nothing in these threads....meanwhile its these simple things that prevent a lot of us from installing the mod in the first place.

Cool

Installed and working

4.1 PL2 with vBSEO

Advise: Because of the way vBSEO works, I have decided NOT to use any of the AJAX option within this modification. Further, I also change the setting in vBulletin to only use the "less problematic" AJAX scripts (just to be sure).

AdminCP > General Settings > AJAX Features > Disable problematic features.

I have not tried it this modification with all AJAX features on and with the options within this modification.

If you're using the cron way of tagging )because of vbseo) wouldn't that produce a seriously load on your server when its creating tags if you run a very busy forum? due to processing hundreds of posts in that 24hr period?

I have been trying this on a clients sites for a few weeks and I just finally got around to checking the tags and many are not even words but basically what ever anyone posted in a thread title....

This may work on an forum where users create very nice thread titles but the tags it is creating on this particular site are just awful.. Great concept though but very hard to implement in a useful way. To really create decent tags the whole thread would have to be scanned and yes, that would be very resource intensive..

A simple"select all" feature in the tag editing section would be a nice addition too..

I have to uninstall for now but I will be following this. I notice that it seems only members on web related sites tend to create tags. Most clients sites that are not web related will just ignore the tags option just about every time..

Thanks much for your hard work..
Rich
