Sitewide tag suggestions (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    Are there any plans for a sitewide tags suggestions feature on the roadmap for this plugin?

    I stumbled upon this old (and hackish) plugin[1] which claims it offered this functionality, but editing core files is not the solution I'm looking for.

    I'm interested in this particular feature as a solution for a client of mine. I might be able to work on this for them. Would you be interested in adding such a feature and do you have any thoughts on how to implement this?

    I have some experience in developing sitewide solutions, see the bbAggregate plugin which aims to do something similar as what your plugin offers.

    I don't think most people using SWT would use that feature so I think it would be better to stay as a separate plugin.

    It could be done without a hack by replacing the tags metabox with a custom one you develop.

    remove_metabox(...
    add_metabox(...

    Hi Ron,
    Alright an add-on plugin would be sufficient for my needs and perhaps for those who would like to use this feature with SWT. I like your approach on how to deal with this. Performance would be a challenge for large WordPress Network installs. I will try to offer this add-on for SWT on the WordPress repository if my client decides they need this functionality.

    Thanks for your quick reply!
