This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin integrates some of Apache Stanbol‘s features into your WordPress blog.


You can find video showcasing the plugin’s features on Youtube.


  • Generate links to Wikipedia articles automatically
  • Generate maps with locations mentioned in the post
  • Provide useful background information when writing your blog post
  • Auto-tag your posts


Feel free to contact me! I worked hard to make the current feature set stable, but as this is my first plugin chance is that something’s still rough.


  • This shows the selected entities to auto-link and auto-tag (North Carolina and Barack Obama), the infobx with detailed information about Barack Obama, and the auto-created map, which currently displays New York, India, and some other state in the USA. Also note the tags on the right side, which have already been added.


  1. Download plugin and copy to your plugin directory (usually this is /wp-content/plugins)
  2. Set up your Stanbol instance to have an enhancement engine with at least:
    1. One NER engine (tested with OpenNLP NER)
    2. DBpedia Linking
    3. DBpedia Dereferencing
    4. A language detection engine
  3. In case you want to recognize special entities, you probably need to add a training model to your Stanbol enhancement engines. The standard model works well for politicians, countries etc., but fails for sportspersons.
  4. Open config.php, define:
    1. STANBOL_INSTANCE to the correct HTTP endpoint (previously defined in step 2)
    2. GOOGLE_MAPS_API_KEY to your Google Maps API key (get one at Google’s API console)
    3. Have a look at the other settings as well.
  5. Activate the plugin.
