Auto-tags

Description

This plugin uses the yahoo.com API to find the most relevant keywords from the content of your post, and then adds them as tags.

The tagging is fully automatic, so if you’re using a plugin like feedwordpress to display RSS feeds on your blog as posts, everything will get done as the feed posts are published. No user intervention necessary!

Screenshots

  • This is what the tag area looks like when this plugin did its job. Nice tags!

Installation

  1. Upload the auto-tag directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Open the Auto Tags/Settings menu to configure.
  4. That’s it. Every new post will now be automatically tagged.

FAQ

What are the configuration options ?

There are quite a few, but you can choose whether to tag posts or pages or both, the maximum number of tags on each post, and more!

Wow, is this great or what?

Yes, but thanks for saying so in the form of a question!

Reviews

Works Well with Fix

I was wrong about the plugin working, having mixed it up with another. However, I have posted a code fix for others in the Support area. The fix uses a straight YQL get call; it would probably be better as a post.
