    I see your plugin very useful, specially if it could set categories instead of tags... It should not be a problem, since it's also taxonomy, therefore would you/anybody be so kind and explain me how to hack the plugin to set categories instead of tags?

    Hi, I asked the same question about using categories too: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-docs-auto-tags-error-message-on-settings-page-after-install?replies=3

    But didn't hear back so I guess the author didn't have time. I think that'd be great (and I love this auto tag plugin! It's so useful)

    I don't know anything about plugin development but I'm going to be brave and open up the files to see if I can figure out how to create a categories version. I will let you know if I come up with anything useful.

    If you folks want to suggest the code needed to support cats and/or custom taxonomies, I'd be happy to review and incorporate it.

    Hi John, many thanks for responding.

    If you could add the functionality of being able to auto add categories in the same way as tags that would be fantastic, would that be a simple task?

    I have tried to look at the source code of the plugin to see what would be needed but I am out of my depth!

    I am using the plugin for a rescue animal rehoming website where we aggregate posts from another source (our forum) and am going to request the posters add codes such as #beagle #age3 #male in to their posts that will correspond to the auto tag/category, then people can do a more in-depth search on the WordPress site.

    I would like to use categories for info such as the breed so that I can separate that from age, gender etc.

    Custom taxonomies would be interesting from a WordPress fan point of view, but is not necessary for my current project if it's a lot of work to implement.

    I'm happy to send a small donation ($10 or something?) towards development if your time is limited as this plugin would really help me out, although I am working pro-bono for a non-profit organisation so if you are happy to provide it for free that would be great too.

    Thanks again for your time :) Much appreciated.

    No solution so far?

    There is a plugin #Category master# for categories, but
    I'm still looking for "auto custom taxonomy" solution...

    I believe would be the ultimate... :)
    Any help?

    Hi Folks,

    I just committed version 0.6 which adds category support.

    Great update!

    How about custom taxonomies?
    something like "simple tags" plugin?
