Doc’s Auto-tags

Description

Assigns tags to posts containing specific text strings, handy for filtering within the loop. A gift to @docrock from @johnleblanc to help keep Instagr.am image posts out of the mrdocrock.com homepage loop. Born April 13, 2011 in Kaneohe, HI.

Screenshots

  • Configuration interface where text strings and corresponding tags (and/or categories) are defined: Tools -> Doc's Auto-Tags

Installation

  1. Install from the Plugins page within the Dashboard. For those with too much free time, download from the plugin page or subversion repository and upload docs-auto-tags to your plugins directory (usually /wp-content/plugins/ unless you’ve defined a custom value by overriding the WP_PLUGINS_DIR constant).
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure your settings within the ‘Tools’ area in the Dashboard

FAQ

Great, my newly saved posts are being auto-tagged. How do I filter posts by tag within the WordPress Loop?

An example of query_posts():

Here’s a cleaner version excluding posts tagged with tag ID 42:
array( 10 ),
‘tag__not_in’ => array( 42 ),
‘paged’ => $paged,
);
query_posts($args);
?>
