Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.8.4

New Version!

– Beware: There are a bunch of new options: go to the Options > Tags page. Some of them will change the way things look.
– Edit: Beware #2: If all of a sudden tags stop saving, doing a force reinstall will make everything go (the first .zip of this version I uploaded had build numbers out of sync. It’s sufficiently late that I’ve probably made the build numbers out of sync in a different way in the new .zip d: )

– I’ve fixed the bug where text sent to tagyu.com for tag suggestions that contained HTML markup would have a spaz
– I’ve fixed the typo in RemoveTags() (Thanks Julio!)
– I’ve fixed the bug in GetCanonicalTag() (ditto)
– I’ve split the administration into two pages – one is configuration stuff, and lives at Options > Tags, and the other is for wrangling tags, and stays at Manage > Tags. I’ve added links from one-to-the-other, so with any luck they don’t get lost (;
– I’ve turned the automagic tags inside-out! There are now “primary” and “secondary” tag links (instead of “local” and “technorati”). Each set of tag links can have its own predefined format selected. Let me know if this causes more pain than joy!
– I’ve added custom format stuff for linking to gada.be; along with a handy predefined format gadabecommalist that will render a simple, comma-separated list of tag links into the gada.be site.
– I’ve monkied with the internals of GetFormatForType. It’s much cooler, now (: Instead of a big switch, there’s an array of items which lets me grab a format by key (And make a list of predefined formats for the options page (; On the horizon will be a convenient way of putting custom formats somewhere so that they can be called by name, without fear of changes being squished by later versions of the plugin – probably it’ll be a “make this file, put a function called somesuch in it” kind of arrangement.)

– I think that’s it! (:

* Caution: Out of Date, but I’m way too tired now; so I’ll update it tomorrow (:

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.8.3

UTW 2.8.3 has switched to tagyu.com for tag suggestions instead of using Yahoo! With any luck this will produce much more useful tag suggestions (:

I’ve also added in a new predefined format, weightedlongtailvertical which is the format that I’m using for the popular tags, and on the Archives page; in this theme.

There are also a few more custom formatting placeholders for getting the percentile ranking of tags.

– Tag entry bits are now comma separated instead of space separated (Tags that contain spaces will have underscores magically added for now, though*)
– There are synonyms for tags!

I should explain the synonym thing (:

Basically, there are tags; and there are synonyms. Each are special in their own ways. A tag is the really-real version of a keyword. A synonym is a fake-tag that pretends to be a tag. A synonym can be associated with a tag via the Manage Tags page. A synonym can have more than one tag (although its behaviour is ill-defined at the moment: I haven’t done any specific handling of it yet; but you aren’t prevented from using a synonym for two tags); but if a synonym is already a tag, then sorry kiddo, it can’t be a synonym as well.

Example: If I have a… “photography” tag, and assign “photo” and “photograph” as synonyms; if I go to http://www.neato.co.nz/tags/photo, then the same posts display as if I was to go to http://www.neato.co.nz/tags/photography. Further, if I go to http://www.neato.co.nz/tags/photo+monkey, then I’ll see posts tagged with both photography and monkey (unless monkey is also a synonym, in which case I’ll see posts tagged with photography and whatever the underlying tag for monkey is).

This is just phase one of synonyms, which basically allows defining synonyms (via the Manage Tags page), and using the synonyms for pages that are requested. Phase two, will see more ways of including synonyms on pages..

* People who know more PHP than me: is there a way of getting $_GET values which still have the + signs and %20’s intact? I can see a way of wrangling it out of the query string; but I’d really rather avoid doing that since there are lots of ways for it to go wrong

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.7.7

Whee. ‘Nother release!

  • I fixed the bug with related tags
  • I’ve added a new template tag, UTW_AddTagToCurrentPost($format=””) that renders a textbox for adding a tag to the current post (it needs to go inside the wordpress loop; If a named format is specfied, the contents of the page element with the id “tags-{post id}” will be replaced with the list of tags for the post, in the format specified)
  • I’ve added a few more bits for formatting
    • In custom formatting strings, %intersectionicon% draws a cute little icon, and links to the current tag(s) and the tag being rendered. (This only makes sense for tags that are displayed on a tag page rather than the index or single pages)*
    • %icons% will render a set of icons (currently Technorati, Flickr, Del.icio.us, Wikipedia, RSS, intersection).
    • For named formats, “iconlist” renders a link to the tag followed by the set of icons
    • “htmllisticons” renders <li> tags, containing the icons followed by a link to the tag
    • “commalisticons” renders a link to the tag followed by the set of icons with a comma between tags

* Adding the url as a custom formatting option seems so obvious now.. I’ll add one for the next release.

Ultimate Tag Warrior 2.7.5

New Ultimate Tag Warrior!

This version adds…
– A Force Reinstall button on the manage tags page. Clicking this will attempt to re-run all of the updates.
– There’s now a “single” template in custom formats
– The Tag Suggestions bit will now take the keywords that Yahoo! sends back, and looks for any tags which are related (i.e. if a post is tagged with one of the Yahoo! keywords, then any other tags for that post will be in the tag suggestions list)

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)
