Support » Plugin: Automatic Post Tagger » Works Perfectly

  • I have re-evaluated this plug-in and find that it works perfectly. It took me awhile to get me head around how to manipulate the tags using the interface.

    I found it is quite easy to exclude a tag via related words. Once you understand how the back end manipulates your tags, it’s very easy to make the plugin perform exactly as you need.

    Thanks to the author for the detailed responses, and wonderful support of an excellent plugin.

    Thank you!

    So the plugin should not add a tag if a certain string is also included in the post, is that correct?

    There is a word combo in every single post that I do not want tagged.

    Could you please give me a specific example? Maybe it’s possible to achieve this by using different word separators.

    Yes, I am autoblogging to my site and as a result, my website name is included in every post, and I do not want that to be a tag. Also, the plugin is pulling in the word fin as a tag on every post as a result of the words: FINd and deFINitely…I’m guessing as I can find no other instance of those 3 letters together.

    The word ‘red’ is included in the markup code, but does not show on the post itself, and that is tagged every time as well.

    And finally, the number 2 and 2D is tagged consistently and I can find no isolated instances of these in either the post or the markup.

    I would love to add these words/letters to a list of ignored tags so I could continue to use the plugin. ATM I have disabled it, until I figure a way to overcome these error tags.

    I usually hashtag words that I want tagged in the post prior to it being auto posted, and ideally I would like those words and only those words tagged.

    Any ideas or suggestions to achieve this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for the plugin!

    Yes, I am autoblogging to my site and as a result, my website name is included in every post, and I do not want that to be a tag.

    I would remove this particular keyword (your website name) from the list of tags + related words then.

    Also, the plugin is pulling in the word fin as a tag on every post as a result of the words: FINd and deFINitely…I’m guessing as I can find no other instance of those 3 letters together.

    This should happen only if you use the following string as a related word: “*fin*”. But if that’s not the case then I have no idea what might be wrong with it.

    I was actually dealing with this problem in the not yet released version 1.6 (it was caused by non-existent word separators); I’m not sure if this particular bug affects also v1.5 though (it shouldn’t AFAIK).

    The word ‘red’ is included in the markup code, but does not show on the post itself, and that is tagged every time as well.

    If the plugin is configured to strip HTML tags from the post, only the word “green” will be ignored in the following example:

    <span title="green">red</span>

    The word “red” will be ignored only if you remove characters “<” and “>” from your word separators.

    And finally, the number 2 and 2D is tagged consistently and I can find no isolated instances of these in either the post or the markup.

    If these keywords aren’t included on the list of tags + related words then they should not be added to posts as tags.

    The features you suggested probably won’t be implemented in the next version 1.6 (there’s still a lot of other more important things that need to be done) but since a large part of code has been changed, let’s hope that these strange bugs won’t bother you after upgrading the plugin.

    (Unfortunately I still don’t know when the new version will be released. Sorry for the inconvenience.)
