Strictly AutoTags is a plugin that automatically adds the most relevant tags to posts.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
If you add a post but no tags are added then it does not mean the plugin is not working just that no tags could be found to associate with the post.
Test the plugin is working by creating a new post with the following content and saving it as a draft:
Article Title: The CIA now admits responsibility for torture at Guantanamo Bay
Content: Today the CIA admitted it was responsible for the recent accusations of torture at Guantanamo Bay.
Billy Bob Johnson, the chief station manager at the Guantanamo Bay prison said that the USA had to hold its hands up and admit that it had allowed its CIA operatives to feed the prisoners nothing but McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken meals whilst forcing them to listen to Christian Rock Music for up to 20 hour periods at a time without any break.
The CIA apologised for the allegations and promised to review its policy of using fast food and Christian Rock Music as a method of torture.
Save the draft post and check the number of tags that get added. The plugin should have found a number of words to use even if you have no existing saved tags in your site. It is always best to save the article as a draft, check which tags have been used, remove or add any yourself before publishing an article.
Some people have complained that they have added words to the stop/noise word list which still get tagged and think the plugin is broken. This is not the case and the problem is usually that the user hasn't removed any new noise words from the system first BEFORE re-scanning. The noise words are only used in the auto discovery stage of the auto tagging and if tags have already been saved in the system then the site will use them in it's relevancy check whether or not they have been marked as noise words. Version 2.0 has a new option to aid the easy removal of noise words from the saved post tag list and this option should be run whenever new noise words are added.
If you have articles with lots of capital words in the title e.g THIS IS A TEST ARTICLE or body then set the Ignore Capital Percentage to a level appropriate for your site. Otherwise words will be treated as acronyms when they shouldn't.
If you don't want the plugin to hunt out possible new tags for your site then turn Auto Discovery OFF. Then only existing saved post tags will be used to find relevant tags in new articles.
Auto Discovery will find new possible words to use as tags using the settings you give it so set them carefully. However if these new words are not found to be relevant to your article they won't get saved against the post OR in the system. Use the Rank Title and Rank HTML options to ensure words in the post title or already in special formatting HTML such as headers or strong tags are considered more relevant than other words.
If you have any problems make sure it not related to WordPress, your server/hosting or other plugins before requesting support.
Please check existing support tickets before writing a new support ticket as the problem may have already been answered.
Always disable all other plugins and leave just Strictly AutoTags on before considering it the likely cause of a problem.
