Alright, I figured this out. This plugin only works when three conditions are met:
- You are using tags.
- The tags are being used in a published post.
- The tags are being used in a public post.
If those conditions are not met, WordPress records the tag-use count as ‘0’ and simple tags does not function.
So, for the heck of it, to get suggested tags to work, lines 166-169 become:
} if ( $this->options['use_suggested_tags'] == 1 ) wp_enqueue_script('st-helper-suggested-tags');
In what file do I need to change this? I get the exact same error …
I have the feeling there is a conflict between Simple Tags and another plugin, as Simple Tags seems to work fine on another blog I have (both running WP 2.7)
Update: OK figured out to change this in simple-tags.admin.php in the 2.7/inc directory. But making this change does not solve my problem unfortunately. Any other ideas?
I had this message before too. And then I realized you have to have at least ONE tag in your database for the “suggested tags” and “click tags” to work.
This happens in IE or Firefox. Here’s some details from the browser errors:

I have the same situation. Could you please tell me where to put these tags?
I have the same issue, in both Firefox (3) and Opera (9.6) running under Ubuntu (latest). At the same time I also experienced another issue with my media upload/insert buttons disappearing (mentioned in another thread). No amount of rolling back versions helped with either problem.
wzeallor – If you’d let us know the file name in which you made that substitution, I’d love to try it out. (and would be immensely grateful!)
Go to tags…add one tag…and it should star working. It did for me.
adding a tag didn’t work for me, still the same error WP2.7 ST1.6.4
I had this problem with two of my blogs. With one I simply added a tag and everything was alright, but the other blog wasn’t so easy.
It turns out that a plugin called “Position Yourself” interferes with Simple Tags. Disable it and add a new tag, and all will be well.
Seems I figured it out. I’ve found some multiline (with \n char) tags in wp_terms. So, I just removed them and got it working
Not sure whats going on. Tried finding as many forums as possible about the problem.
Any more suggestions? Also, where can I find the wp_terms file. This is a file right?
same issue here too.
it’s interesting. I have 6 different worpress 2.7.1 installs with the same plugins added, including Simple Tags 1.6.4.
All on the same server.
Simple Tags works as expected on all but two installs.
Only difference between working and not, that I see, is those not working are installed in the web root. Those who are working are in sub-directories.
The other difference at the moment is cosmetic, being the themes used, but I don’t see how that would impact the admin back-end.
