Auto Tagger is one of the oldest tools in GD Press Tools, and now the time has come for a remake. New Auto Tagger is coming in 4.1 version is rewritten from scratch and includes support for custom post types and custom taxonomies, scheduler, enhanced filters and new settings.

New Auto Tagger will allow you to select posts from different post types and to select taxonomy for each post type where to assign found tags (or terms if you prefer). Further, you can filter post by ID range, you can specify ID’s to exclude and you can set how many terms a post should have at most to be used for tagging. So, you can set that to 0, and all posts with no tags will be tagged. Set it to 5, and all posts with up to 5 terms will be tagged. Also, you can tag posts published in last 30 (or any other number) of days.

Options for tagging are many. You can set number of tags to get, you can control tags case, removal of existing tags and set priority of existing tags over new ones (to minimize tags in the system). You can create cron jobs that will be run as recurring jobs with set scheduler period. And, you can log details about each job into file.

GD Press Tools 4.1 Alpha #2 with new Auto Tagger will be released on Monday. Final 4.1 is expected in July.

    Hi mate,

    Is there an option to generate auto tags base on post content.

    Thanks.

      Auto Tagger does exactly that. Uses different tagging sources to get tags based on the post content. It does that as a background process you can control. Here is the video: http://www.dev4press.com/2011/tutorials/plugins/gd-press-tools/using-gd-press-tools-auto-tagger/

        Hi,

        Thanks for the reply.

        This looks like these tags can improve SEO. Right?

        By introducing the WordPress jobs, WordPress will update tags on some occasions so the posts may become dynamic if the tags are presented together with the post. Right?

        Have you consider Google for as the source for generating tags. Now I know this is possible with Google auto-complete API?

        Thanks.

          You can schedule auto tagger to run, yes, and it can get more tags if found. Displaying tags in posts, can improve posts interconnection. 4 different API’s are used, but Google is not, and I am not aware of any Google API that allows extracting terms from content. If you know how this can be done on Google, through code (PHP example would be great), I would add it to the plugin.

    Hi mate,

    Thanks for the feedback and your time.
    Google can be used for that, but I don’t have the example at this time.

    Now you mentioned posts “interconnection” that is great because tags allows that one creates related posts, and I believe this is so cool.

    By the way, very good plugin as I saw in the video. Will follow this web site in the future. Have a good luck.

    Thanks.

      Thanks, and if I find usable example for Google use, I will add it to the plugin. I plan to add support for OpenCalais soon.

    Dear Milan,

    No problem, in fact Google auto-complete can be used to generate additional words for some most used post phrases, but then you need to identify these phrases at first so it is tricky (tricky rabota). If nothing else the CURL can help.

    By the way I planed to drop few comments re the GD star rating at first but I was not able to do because I am limited member I guess. It looks that this plugin is not developed any more. Right?

    Thanks.

      Support for GD Star Rating is premium only (plugin is free, support is not, so most resources related to this plugin on this website require support license). Plugin is very much in development, with minor bug fixing releases for 1.9.x branch, and work is ongoing for 2.0 (currently closed alpha stage).
