Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.7.4

Shiny new version of Ultimate Tag Warrior!

This one adds tag suggestions (via the Yahoo! content analysis webservice). It’s nifty. Really!

On the edit post pages, there’s now a tag suggestions box; and when you click the Get Keyword Suggestions button, the happy little AJAX elves will interrogate Yahoo! for keywords, and display a list of clickable links that will add tags to your post.

(A little later, I’ll augment the Yahoo! results with some guesses based on existing tags; but you know.. one step at a time)

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.5

Ultimate tag warrior 2.5 is out! however, UTW now has it’s very own home at http://www.neato.co.nz/ultimate-tag-warrior where the juicy details will be posted for this, and other versions.

[Brief overview: 2.5 has big changes to the admin side of things; allows tag clouds; will render a long-tail graph for your tags; ought to behave in not-in-the-siteroot blogs; will clean up duplicate tags; can turn categories into tags; and anything else that I’ve forgotten]

I’ll continue to make announcements in the main part of my blog, though (:

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.0

Okay. I’m somewhat happy with UTW2 now. I’m pretty sure it’s not going to steal your lunchmoney, or anything of that nature, at least.

Something to be aware of, is that even if you have installed a previous version of ultimate tag warrior, you’ll need to visit the installation page; because there are a couple of options which get added. Your head will explode if you forget this! (it probably won’t). By default, the plugin will append links to technorati tag pages at the end of your content; you might not need this, but it’s useful-ish as a starting point if you haven’t used UTW before.

Also, there are now what seems to be two plugins: 1.3 legacy and 2.0. 1.3 Legacy contains all of the functions that the 1.1.2 had, so that everything keeps working; and 2.0 is a cleanslate version which only has functions that use the fancy formatting stuff.

You can also specify the base directory for tags, which is pretty awesome (but I think the admin side will implode if it’s not in the root..)

There’s a readme with instructions for installing in the zip file; and there’s a helpfile in there somewhere which lists out the functions and some stuff for simplified formatting (you can say “commalist” is the kind of formatting, and it dutifully formats it like that; rather than having to wrangle formatting bits directly)

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.0 go crazy with that thang.

Ultimate Tag Warrior 0.1

Version 1.0 is here!

This is the first release of my latest and greatest wordpress plugin Ultimate Tag Warrior. It’s a tagging plugin for wordpress with normalised data (Oooh. Aaaah); and three ways of getting tags back out (Tags on a post, popular tags, and an archive a-la my Category Archive plugin).

There are three functions worth thinking about (the rest is “don’t mind the man behind the curtain” stuff)

ultimate_show_post_tags($separator=” ”, $baseurl=’http://www.technorati.com/tag/’, $notagmessage = “No Tags”)
Display a list of tags associated with the current post.
$seperator is the string that seperates tags. It only appears between tags, and not at the beginning or end of the list.
$baseurl is the base URL to link the text of a tag to. The tag link takes the form {baseurl}{tagname}. The default points to Technorati. The value “/tag/” would link to the local tag page.
$notagmessage is the text to display when a post has no tags.
Display a list of the most popular tags. The tags are wrapped in li html tags, and the number of matching posts is also displayed.
$limit is the maximum number of tags to display.
ultimate_tag_archive($limit = 20, $postlimit=20)

This file contains the full documentation, the plugin file, an installation script, and a basic tag.php template.

Tags come to Neato

Hokay. I’ve mangled my blog software to support tags; so now there are tags associated with postings as well as categories.

I’ve changed the display of my postings to include links to the corresponding technorati tag page; but also to a local tag page which displays just the postings in my blog that match any given tag.

Also, if you go to http://www.neato.co.nz/tag/sometag you’ll get a display of matching items.
