  • The plugin is unique and useful in the sense of offering term extraction services, click tags for rapid addition of tags and so on. However, there are services that no longer work, and it is not compatible with the Gutenberg editor which will be the default in the next major version of WordPress. Some timely updates would really reassure users. Without the term extraction working, it loses a lot of its utility, since while click tags is a useful feature, the autocomplete in WordPress default tagging does a reasonably good job of suggesting tags. The main value from this plugin is the term extraction.

    Also, earlier we were able to use the WordPress tags in the default way as well as the plugin adding tags. Now the WordPress tags don’t appear and there is just a comma separated lists of tags in the text field, which can result in accidental creation of unintended tags through unintended typing (say touchpad accidentally moves cursor). Right now, I appreciate the plugin very much, but my adoption is more like “use it while it works” and can’t rely on it working in the future with each WordPress update possibly resulting in something new not working.

    This is a magnificent plugin in terms of utility. In terms of usability and overall developer engagement (regular updates, removal of obsolete features, suppport), it could do better.
