Laiser Tag Plus

Description

Laiser Tag Plus from PCIS provides an integration between your WordPress site and the Thompson Reuters Open Calais web service. Laiser Tag Plus fetches semantic data (people, places, events, etc.) relevant to your content post that you can use as tags to better categorize, sort and identify it. Laiser Tag Plus will also use these tags to search Flickr for appropriately licensed images for you to use in your blog posts. Laiser Tag Plus also provides support for the Open Calais Company PermID tags. These tags are denoted by an orange stripe, or can be filtered via the dropdown menu in the tag suggestion box. Company tags found within the content of a post will automatically link to their PermID page which includes the company information.

Usage

When writing blog posts, click the “Suggest Tags” link at any time to fetch appropriate tags and photos for the post.

You can select a paragraph or part of the post and click the ‘Suggest Tags’ to fetch fetch appropriate tags and photos for only selected text.

You can enter your own tags, or use tags suggested by Laiser Tag Plus. You can drag tags from the suggested tags list to the Post Tags area, or click on them to add them.

You can also drag tags up to the Laiser Tag Plus images list and Laiser Tag Plus will search Flickr for photos for that tag. You can sort the returned photos by interestingness, date take and date posted.

Clicking on a photo will show you a larger preview of the photo, and you can choose the size of the photo you want to add to your post.
