Auto Describe Taxonomies

Description

This plugin will auto-describe your post tags or your wordpress categories using freebase.

All you have to do after enabling it is to watch it work!

If you dont see any tag description or category description in your frontend tag/category pages, make sure your wordpress theme is displaying them!

Note

*With no word from Dan Fratean since February, I have decided to clone his script and fix it. Having added some sanity checks and a missing array expansion, the plugin now works. Near as I can tell, he was working on an upgrade when something “happened” and he suddenly dropped development. I’d hate to imagine what it was. So this is version 1.0.4.
*If you have Dan Frateans Auto Describe Tags, I suggest uninstalling it prior to installing Auto Describe Taxonomies as it will do the same thing and there is no sense in having two describing engines running on your installation.

FAQ

Why did you do this?

Dan Fratean was working on an upgrade that broke and he dropped off the face of the Earth. After much attempt to get an answer I decided to pick up the torch and continue from where he left off.
