How Can I Contribute?
The plugin is now being maintained on GitHub, so please do contribute all your questions, comments, suggestions, fixes and improvements with me here.
Does this plugin convert all words in the title?
No. There is a user-configurable list of stop words, pre-populated with a host of common words, which can be used to fine-tune the resulting tags.
Will this plugin overwrite my existing tags?
No. The plugin can be configured to either
* Add new terms only when the post does not already contain terms in that taxonomy
* Append the list of terms with any new terms not already added.
When are the tags added? At publish or save?
Tags are added to the post when it is saved, whether as a draft, update or by publishing, but not when the post is autosaved.
Is there a way to reset the list of ignored words back to the original?
Yes. Simply delete the current list of stop words, and Title to Tags will replace the list with its default stop words collection (stopwords.txt)
Will this plugin put tags on my old posts?
Maybe. It will not handle the process automatically, but if you open any untagged post and save it, Titles to Tags will work.
Why won’t this plugin tag the words “Auto” or “Draft”?
Autosaved drafts in WordPress get saved with the title of “Auto Draft”. As such, we need to add those words to our stop list.
- 1.0 ~ Initial public release
- 1.1 ~ Corrected some meta data
- 1.2 ~ Name collision with another plugin, FeedWordPress, corrected
- 1.3 ~ Whoops! Didn’t put the title in the meta data, how silly!
- 1.4 ~ SVN commit to include tag
- 2.0 ~ Revamped version based on experiments with these function in another plugin.
~ using WP-style function notes
~ designed to work with both WP and WPMU
~ lowerNoPunc function now removes posessive ‘s from words
~ addresses issue where tags are created even if they’re not added to the post
- 2.1 ~ Two bug fixes:
~ Use of the deprecated number-based roles in the add_options_menu() call has been fixed.
~ Added isset() check to form submission check. Whoops! Error checking not turned on.
~ NOTE: I am aware of the issue with this plugin not working in 3.0 and the next release will correct this issue. This will probably make the plugin inoperable for <3.0. Please upgrade your system to continue using this plugin.
- 3.0 ~ Converted to WordPress 3.0-compatible code. Not sure how this will affect the 2.x users out there, but will make a branch in SVN just in case.
- 3.0.1 ~ Noticed some improvements to be made to the efficiency of the code. getStopWords is now the only function used to get the stop words anywhere they appear (formerly using get_option directly).
- 3.2 ~ Rearranging a lot of the code, user-defined stop words were being ignored.
- 3.3 New version now on GitHub.
~Version also checked to be compatible with WP 4.4
- 4.0 ~ Changed name to Titles to Terms Ultimate, reflecting newly updated code.
~ T2TU now allows one taxonomy per post type to be auto-populated by title-generated terms.
~ User-selectable taxonomy for each post type registered to WordPress, and each taxonomy registered to that post type.
- 4.1 ~ Refactoring code for efficiency and caching. Also:
~ Creating option to either maintain possessive apostrophes or not.
~ Creating a minimum length option, so smaller words do not get converted.
