UTW Database Spikes: If you are getting reports of high database access or complaints from your shared web hosting service, remove this Plugin immediately. Until then, either use the tagging bookmarklet for simple but effective tags or try another tag WordPress Plugin. (February 2007)

NOTE: For those using WordPress.com, check out A Technorati Tag Bookmarklet for WordPress and WordPress.com Users for an easy method of adding tags to your blog posts.


Developed by Christine Davis, this unrelenting genius and food obsessed diva from New Zealand has created an amazingly powerful tagging tool. It is so sophisticated and complex, even though it is also basically easy, that it is intimidating at first. So take your time. And if you need help, she’s there for you with the Ultimate Tag Warrior support forum.

Basically, download and copy the folder to your Plugins directory. Then activate the Plugin. A new panel will appear under Manage for “Tags”. I recommend you start with the Local Help file link at the top of the panel and browse through the instructions. There is more information on the Author Help link, but start with the Local Help introduction to get a feel for how this works and what else you need to do.

The biggest challenge is in figuring out which tags to use in your WordPress Theme to generate the tags. You have two choices in tags: site search tags and Technorati Tags. You can add one or the other or both.

By default, tags can be added automatically to the end of your posts by choosing that option in your Tags customization panel. You can choose to add Technorati or site search tags or both to the end of your posts. The problem with this is that the plugin just adds the tags to the end of the post.

The automatic tags are wrapped in a span <span class="localtags">. You can style that span, even adding a clear:both to put the tags on their own line, but I found that this doesn’t always work, depending upon your WordPress Theme layout.

You can turn off the automatic functions and manually add tags to your WordPress Theme template files to generate the tags. This works great and you can wrap them in your own style to control the look and placement of the tags.

These are the three that I added to my main site:

<div class="utwtags"><b>Site Search Tags:</b> <?php UTW_ShowTagsForCurrentPost("commalist") ?><br />
<b>Technorati Tags:</b> <?php UTW_ShowTagsForCurrentPost("technoraticommalist") ?><br />
<b>Related Tags:</b> <?php UTW_ShowRelatedTagsForCurrentTagSet("commalist") ?></div>

Ultimate Tag Warrior WordPress Plugin - Examples of Post Tag Lists

To create a colorized tag cloud or heat map, I used this UTW tag to list the top 25 tags in my sidebar (seen at top) and 50 in the tag cloud in the footer. You can change that number:

<div class="sidebartags"><?php UTW_ShowWeightedTagSetAlphabetical("coloredsizedtagcloud","","25") ?></div>

Ultimate Tag Warrior WordPress Plugin - large tag cloud or heat map

This is just a mini introduction to a very powerful tag plugin. The Ultimate Tag Warrior WordPress Plugin includes a variety of tagging features such as tags with the logos for the various tag services such as Technorati, del.icio.us, Flickr, and even tags for Wikipedia. Tags can be displayed in many ways including simple lists, monochrome tag clouds, colorized tag clouds, heat maps, long tail graphs, and something called the weighted bar thing.

I’ve only scratched the surface of what UTW can do. The rest you will have to find out on your own or check out the Ultimate Tag Warrior support forum for more help and information.

    That’s a great review. I use UTW and though my use is very light weight, I love all the flexibility Chrisitine has built into the software.

    I think it is possible to display more than just those Technorati and Site Search tags.

    Plus, Christine is just a great developer, very responsive and friendly.

  2. Posted October 23, 2005 at 10:23 pm | Permalink

    You’re right. Only the Technorati link parameters link to Technorati. There are parameters for the template tags that will generate a wide variety of links to different tagging services, as well as to tags on your own site.

    I love the versatility of this plugin for tagging.

    Aww.

    You made me blush (:

    I know I should go directly to Christine about this problem, but I feel like an idiot right now–it’s now almost two days since I’ve been trying to find a way to make this plugin work and I know it should be simple enough, but something is really missing. I went to her site and read almost anything that has something to do with UTW, and I’m still empty-handed. Yours is the only thing I could find that looks like a “light at the end of the tunnel”.

    Which template files should I be dealing with? Am I being asked to make a new template? If so, what should I put inside it? If it’s just the existing templates, well, I’ve already added the required code inside my sidebar file. And I went to Options and Manage to change things there. I tried to test-post and add tags for the post. Still nothing. The sidebar is empty. No tag cloud can be seen.

    I guess that’s where the tag.php, tags.php come into the picture. Except that I dont’t know how to go about it.

    I’m sorry for this long message. This is the result of too much frustration on my part. I’m just praying someone here will be able to guide me through the process of making this plugin work. I just want a simple sidebar tag cloud and that’s all.

  5. Posted January 30, 2006 at 11:08 pm | Permalink

    Whoa! Slow down.

    First, the template files you want to deal with are the ones in which you want the tags to appear. Want it in the footer, then edit your Theme’s footer.php template file. Want it in the sidebar, then edit your Theme’s sidebar.php template file. Very simple stuff. You are not making a new template file.

    You have to add the tags before you can see the tags. Have you added them to individual posts? If not, then do so. Nothing to see if nothing is there. You can also add all your categories as tags to the list. See the instructions for how to do that under the Options.

    You don’t need a tag.php or tags.php anywhere. Just work this very simply as described above.

    The Ultimate Tag Warrior is a very powerful WordPress Plugin and it can easily be intimidating. Go slowly and take it one step at a time. It’s easy to make things more complicated than they are.

    Just activate the plugin, add your tags to your posts, and edit the templates (sidebar, footer, whatever) to include a copy of what I’ve posted above to see this work. Then play around to customize things.

    I know I probably sound like I’m talking down to you, but I understand the stress of complicating things that don’t need complicating. Why do you think I write this blog? It’s to help people like you understand things simply. Like I wish I’d had someone do for me.

    Nice and slow. Step-by-step. You can do it.

  6. Posted January 31, 2006 at 7:33 am | Permalink

    Thank you so much. For answering right away and for the vote of confidence. Haha.

    OK, I redid everything. And listened to your advice. Well, the tag cloud sidebar is still empty, but this time, I have this on every post:

    Tags: No tags

    That’s a sight for sore eyes. Haha. At least I could see something.

    Anyway, here’s what I think. There must be a missing field or button somewhere on my WRITE POST page.

    Tags (comma separated list)? Yes, I have that. (This is where I add tags.)

    Add existing tag? Choose a tag…? Yes. (This is where it gets so frustrating. Right after I press SAVE, I check this one. And there are still no added tags to be seen. Grrr.)

    Tag Suggestions (Courtesy of Tagyu) – Get Keyword Suggestions? Yes. (I don’t really need this one.)

    There. I see all three of them. On the WRITE POST page. Am I missing something, or that’s really it? Those are the only three things that I’m supposed to expect to see on that page? Because it feels like I should be clicking something else, aside from the SAVE (for old posts) or PUBLISH (for new posts) button. I keep adding tags, and then saving them. I wonder where they all went. Haha. Justing keeping my sense of humor here.

    I still haven’t done one thing. And that is to go back to the way my admin pages looked before I “forced” them to behave like they were a part of the theme that I’m using. Yes, I made some changes to my admin pages’ look. So, now I’m thinking, “Maybe their new look is ‘hiding’ this missing button or field.” Or maybe not. I don’t know anymore…I’ll keep trying though. But I want to hear what you have to say about this first.

  7. Posted January 31, 2006 at 7:53 am | Permalink

    Yes, the changes you may have made to your admin pages “might” be impacting the tags, or it might be something as small as copying a quote mark or apostrophe from this blog and not changing it to ascii.

    I forgot that this Theme, as terrific as it is, doesn’t do CODE. So the apostrophes and quote marks in the code are “pretty” and styled and not acceptable by HTML or PHP. Make sure you manually change them to “real marks”.

    Did you go to the UTW Options page and select all the right things? Go through Chris’ manual to make sure you picked the right things. While you are there, convert all your categories to tags, just to be sure.

    As for the Tagyu tag suggestions? That worked for me twice and never again. I ignore it. As for the Save or Publish, I hit SAVE AND CONTINUE to make sure the tags stay in the form, and then add other things if I need to, and then hit SAVE/PUBLISH. Are they there?

    You did upload the entire plugin into its own directory under /Plugins, right? I’m sure you did. And I’m sure you’ve run validation tests on your XHMTL to make sure there aren’t any uglies sitting there that also might be causing problems.

    From here on out, read through the extensive comments and manual Chris created, and ask because this is the best I can do. Also check on the WordPress Support Forum as someone may have your answer there, too. I had a horrible time the first time I tried this, because there was no decent help file. I helped Chris rewrite the manual, though work proceeds on it, and now it is much easier to use.

    Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

  8. Posted January 31, 2006 at 1:58 pm | Permalink

    Here’s what’s on my Options/Tags page:

    1. Use url rewriting for local tag urls (/tag/tag instead of index.php?tag=tag): BOX UNCHECKED

    2. Base url: /tag/

    3. Include trailing slash on tag urls: BOX UNCHECKED

    4. Include debugging information: BOX UNCHECKED

    5. Include local tag links in feeds: BOX CHECKED

    6. Automatically include primary tag links: NO

    7. Base format for primary tag links: COMMALISTWITHTAGLABEL

    8. Automatically include secondary tag links: NO

    9. Base format for secondary tag links: TAGSETSIMPLELIST

    10. (The next one remains almost unchanged: the colors, font sizes, font size units. I also didn’t check any of the boxes to display icons.)

    11. Show existing tags on post editing page: DROPDOWN

    12. Automatically add categories as tags: BOX CHECKED

    I changed nothing on the Manage/Tags page.

    All three plugins have been activated. I made a tags.php, even though it’s not really necessary. Finally, the codes are in their places: one is in each post (I put it in the post.php), and another is in the sidebar.php.

    After adding tags, I no longer go directly to SAVE/PUBLISH. I go to SAVE AND CONTINUE EDITING FIRST on my Write Post page, so I can easily check if I’ve successfully added the tags. Nada. Oh, and I’ve also re-uploaded my admin pages. So, now they’re good as new.

    What else?

    WordPress version: 2.0

    Theme: Connections Reloaded

    Site: http://baliws.com

    I don’t know what else I’m supposed to have done or not done.

    Thanks again for all your help. Really appreciate it.

    And I’m sorry if I keep bugging you about this, but Christine seems to be unavailable right now. It’s just that–I love this plugin, and I’m not ready yet to give it up. Haha.

  9. Posted January 31, 2006 at 2:55 pm | Permalink

    I have basically the same options, though both of my tag formats are tagsetsimplelist where you have two differnt types. And after having my entire Write Post panel filled with tags and not liking the drop down list, I have it showing none – but that shouldn’t matter.

    I’m doing my best but not sure how much more I can help. When you click save and continue editing, do you still see the tags you have added to the post in the Write Post panel? Then they should show up.

    Are you using one of the examples shown in the above article in your template files? Are you sure you uploaded the new template files to your Theme and not into another directory (done that! Yikes!)? I’ve also made the change, started the FTP program to upload them, then “thought” I’d uploaded them and couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t seeing them.

    I see that you are also using Wordspew. I remember there being some conflicts somewhere with that plugin, though I cannot remember any specifics. You might try disabling that and one by one going through your plugins to deactivate and test and reactivate to see if there is a conflict with one of them.

    It is clear from your blog that you do have the tags in place but nothing is happening there. Check to make sure, as mentioned, that all the quote marks are real quote marks and not curly quotes in the template tags for UTW.

    OH, I ran a validation on your site and it has a few nasty errors that need to be fixed that might be a problem. Fix those and let me know if that helps.

    After that, I know nothing, see nothing, think nothing. Sorry.

    Hey, on this site, I use this method of manually adding tags to every post because UTW is not an available plugin with WordPress.com. So I do it myself. See, there are always options.

  10. Posted January 31, 2006 at 9:26 pm | Permalink

    Lorelle, I was able to talk to Christine today. And she found out who’s the culprit. Haha. It turned out that there was really nothing I could do on my own. It was something database-related. Aahh, she’s a genius, I think. She took one look or two at my site and saw what I needed to do: make a few changes to my tag database. So I added this and changed that. Suffice it to say that — I now have a working tag cloud! Woohoo!

    You and Christine are a rare breed. Thank you. And God bless you.

  11. Posted January 31, 2006 at 11:14 pm | Permalink

    Glad to help and maybe the process described will help others in the future. Good luck to you!

  12. Posted February 8, 2006 at 1:20 pm | Permalink

    Out of curiousity, WHERE do you include your custom tag list includes?

    I would very much to disable the automatic tag lists, and have them show up ONLY in single articles, not when the excerpts from multiple posts are shown, such as the front page, and the category listings.

    I notice those don’t show on YOUR site – so I’m curious.

  13. Posted February 8, 2006 at 2:39 pm | Permalink

    Very good question. It’s a mystery!

    Nah, not really, It’s just the magic of WordPress Theme template files.

    On my main stie I use different templates to view the various page views. This allows me to create highly customizable page results. On the front page, generated with the index.php template file, I’ve set up a conditional tag query to generate the excerpts, and I do not include the tag that calls the tags. ;-) The UTW tag, of course.

    Search results are generated again with a custom template file, search.php, which only shows excerpts not tags. Posts are displayed using three different single.php template files, depending upon the category of the post, and two of those single.php template files include the UTW tag.

    My category template file is very special, and well described in an article on the WordPress Codex called Creating Custom Category Templates – Replacing Multiple Category Templates with One. There, I also do not use UTW tags.

    The site might look simple, but there is a lot of tweaking and customization under the hood. It’s part of the fun of creating and customizing WordPress Themes and template files.

    So, the answer to your question is that you can have the tags show up wherever you want, you just have to dig into the template tags to make their appear where you want, and not where you don’t. It isn’t controlled through the Administration Panels for the Ultimate Tag Warrior. You have to dig into your WordPress Theme.

  14. Posted February 8, 2006 at 2:57 pm | Permalink

    Thank you for your fast reponse :)

    Yes – I’ve been digging throuh, and customizing my own template in a similar fasion, even some cusomized PHP programming in the index.php file.

    However, I don’t really want to start cracking open files on a “deeper level” than that; I don’t really want to start hacking the WordPress PHP files and functions themselves. Hwever, within “The Loop” the only API function called is the_content() function I was pretty much resigning myself to having to ‘hack’ the_content function to detect whether is was presenting an excerpt (in which case do NOT include the tag list/cloud), or a full article (DO include the list/cloud).

    I was wondering if this was your approach, and if so where you customized, and if not, how DID you customize your template files, or the WordPress PHP files themselves?

    What I was asking was not so much “where in the control panel” you update this – I was asking “What part of which file” you updated :)

    If I know where to customize, I know how to customize :)

  15. Posted February 8, 2006 at 3:25 pm | Permalink

    Oh, I thought I told you.

    I try to never touch the core programming files. All of this is done in the Theme template files.

    They are, as mentioned, in my Theme directory:

    index.php
    search.php
    category.php
    single.php

    No messing with the loop. No digging into the core files. Simply open your Theme directory to see if you have, for instance, a single.php template file. Edit that and put the UTW tag, like those mentioned in the article, where you want the tags to appear. Upload the new file (or save it if you used the horrid built-in Text Editor) and the tags are now on the single.php template file and will appear when the user views a single post view of your site.

    UTW will automatically amend tags to your template files. Turn that feature off through the UTW Options and put the UTW template tags (like <?php UTW_ShowTagsForCurrentPost(“commalist”) ?>) where you want them, which means you will not put the UTW tag on your index.php, category.php, or search.php template files if you do not what tags to appear there, but you will on your single.php template file.

    If you do not have any of the template files, you can easily make your own and that is explained in the WordPress Lessons on the WordPress Codex under Templates > Customizing Your Template Files.

    Changing the_content template tag to the_content template tag. Minor adjustment and commonly done. Many don’t consider that “hacking”, as it isn’t changing the entire way the code works. This is one of the options you have with the loop. It feels scary though, if you are unfamiliar with the process.

    If you are unfamiliar with how template files work, which is fascinating to me but complex to many, see the article, Stepping Into Templates, a step-by-step look at how templates work, especially the template hierarchy, which explains how different page views are generated automatically within WordPress, just be the mere presence of the template file.

    For example, if you want the single post view to look different from the front page view (index.php), merely add a single.php template file as a copy of the index.php PHP code (just copy the index.php file and rename it single.php), and edit that to look or display the content as you want it to look. Don’t do anything to the index.php template file. When WordPress generates the single.php post view per user request, it goes looking for single.php. If it doesn’t find it, it defaults to the index.php template file.

    I hope that makes sense because this is how the customization process works. My index.php template file does not feature the UTW tags. When you click on a post title or link, the single.php template file is called up to display the post, and the single.php template file features a link to the UTW tags under the post content in my Post Meta Data Section.

    Does that help?

    So “which part of which file” to change is dependent upon the template file you want to have feature the tags, as I hopefully over explained. Basically, you put it where you want it. hee hee. You can also view the source code of any of my posts on my main site to see “where” I put the code in relationship to the DIVs and content. That might help, too.

    Hi Lorelle! Were does that name come from? Makes me wander back to neverneverland :-)
    I see that I have been ‘tagged’. Is that the correct word? Which brings me directly to a few to be unraveled mysteries. How did you get ‘hold’ of my posting in which you are mentioned I wonder? Just a question, I am a nosy ‘bugger’ :) Like to know …
    Okay. . . I have been nosing in that ‘other’ blog of yours (camerontheroad). All I can tell, I am not finished here. That’s a fact. Also people listen to this. Did you know Lorelle gives us a ready made “WordPress-Shoppinglist”? It’s all here. Have a great time at Lorelle’s. But don’t forget to visit mine :)

  17. Posted February 11, 2006 at 7:16 pm | Permalink

    Lorelle is a made up name from my mother, though I’ve recently found out it is also a common last name in France (like Johnson).

    The “tagged” you are referring to is called a trackback. Your blog automatically links to any blog post you link to. It’s like hearing gossip about you but directly from the source. It is a built-in feature with every WordPress blog, though you can turn it off on a per-post basis or globally through your Options.

    Thanks for the kind words and have fun with your WordPress blog. It does a lot of the work for you, like trackbacks.

  18. Posted February 12, 2006 at 5:34 am | Permalink

    Lorelle, Thanks for that trackback issue. So I’ll link more often to other bloggers. Makes the web bigger. Increases visits. That’s nice.

  19. Posted February 14, 2006 at 3:04 pm | Permalink

    Hello Lorelle,

    you have any idea what could be wrong with my UTW? There’s a link from the tag cloud like this: index.php?tag=sometag. When I click it, no posts show up. Do I need to modify index.php somehow?

    I really like reading your blog, very informative and helpful.

  20. Posted February 14, 2006 at 6:47 pm | Permalink

    It looks good on your blog, but you are right that the tags don’t show anything when clicked. If you are using Permalinks, then the link should read blah.com/tag/keyword so check there, but this is a question for Christine. I think you have to designate how you want the link to work in the UTW Options, but check with her for specifics.

  21. Posted February 15, 2006 at 2:48 pm | Permalink

    Hi Lorelle,

    I have UTW working but there’s something I don’t really understand — Will using internal only tags achieve anything when I ping Technorati or do I have to activate the Technorati tags option as well? I curently use both but would prefer to only use one.

    Thanks

  22. Posted February 15, 2006 at 4:56 pm | Permalink

    Pinging has nothing to do with tags. Technorati is pinged when you publish because WordPress works with Ping-o-matic to ping Technorati and other tagging services, search engines, and directories to say “Hey, they’ve done something new!”

    You DO NOT need to include links to Technorati, via tags or otherwise, anywhere on your site. A tag is a tag and used by other services other than Technorati. The rel="tag" as explained above is all you need in a link to designate it as a tag. I don’t link my tags to Technorati to but my own site search using the tags as keywords.

    Does that explain it better?

    With WordPress, you do not have to manually ping. It does it automatically if you have pings enabled, which they are by default. You have to turn them off consciously. Tags are unrelated.

  23. Posted February 15, 2006 at 11:08 pm | Permalink

    Hi Lorelle,

    I recently changed my blog from using many categories to using just a few and differentating with keywords (tags). I have found this excellent (and easy with the UTW plugin) but I suppose I have never really understood how the whole tagging thingy worked with the likes of Technorati, et al

    Appreciate your explanation, thanks

    @Can

    Can you share the solution you were presented with? I am also getting a “No Tags” problem with the latest UTW version on WordPress 2.0. No matter what tags I add on the Write Post page, they aren’t saved. When I go to retrieve the post, the Tag field is empty. I’m pretty much stuck and Googling brought me here.

  25. Posted February 23, 2006 at 4:24 pm | Permalink

    Christine, the developers of the Ultimate Tag Warrior, has a lot of helpful tips and support information at http://www.neato.co.nz/ultimate-tag-warrior/ and also check out her new forum with a lot of helpful information.

    Sorry I can’t be more specific with my help but she is the expert and I’d rather have you start there to get the help you need now, instead of later. It’s always some little thing that stops it from working, so don’t worry, she can help. Good luck.

    Hi Lorelle,
    I know this an old post but I decided to take your advice and install UTW, finally. It’s working great (it understands Hebrew! yayy!), but I couldn’t figure out the tag.php concept. The whole tags bundle is confusing and what I want it to do, when I click on a tag, to search the site and return a list of posts with that tag. Nothing more, nothing else. But that’s not what UTW does by default.
    How did you configure that? I know I should ask Christine this question but I chose you anyway =) I found this in the search process: http://www.squible.com/2005/12/05/using-livesearch-for-tags/ but I’m a bit worried about that one.
    Hope you can throw in some tips.

  27. Posted March 18, 2006 at 7:41 am | Permalink

    First, there are no “old posts” on this site. ;-) I’ve been doing this so long, old to me is years not a month or two.

    Yes, UTW can be confusing. Just relax and follow the very simple instructions described above and in the help files that come with the program. The tag.php is a template file you create based upon your index.php, search.php, or single.php, whichever you would like. It’s just a “page” that is generated if you want to customize how your tag page will look when someone clicks a tag. If you don’t want or need a custom tag page, then ignore that. It will automatically use the index.php template file without you doing anything. Magic!

    In the configuration panel for UTW, you need to tell UTW what you want it to do. I told it to set it for site search tags, not Technorati. You can change that configuration to whatever you want.

    And yes, you should ask Christine this question because she has a fabulous Ultimate Tag Warrior WordPress Plugin Support Forum, so you can get answers from her and other people familiar with the plugin much faster than me, who is NOT an expert on this plugin. I know how to make it do what I need it to do, but I turn to the support forum when it goes beyond my basic needs.

    Good luck with it and I’m thrilled that it understands Hebrew. Col baysayter!

    Thanks for the answer Lorelle. I’m reading the UTW forums right now so hopefully I will find an answer there.
    However , you wrote:

    “In the configuration panel for UTW, you need to tell UTW what you want it to do. I told it to set it for site search tags, not Technorati. You can change that configuration to whatever you want.”

    Which is what I’m looking for! Where is it? =(

  29. Posted March 18, 2006 at 7:56 am | Permalink

    It is set by the tag you choose to embed in your template files:

    <b>Site Search Tags:</b> <?php UTW_ShowTagsForCurrentPost("commalist") ?><br />
    <b>Technorati Tags:</b> <?php UTW_ShowTagsForCurrentPost("technoraticommalist") ?>

    As show in the article above. In an older version of UTW, you could set this in the Manage > Tags > Configuration, but now it is set by the template tag you put in your template files.

    Good luck!

    Man, I just want my main page to display excerpts, so that people don’t need to read whole articles unless they want! Why can’t I find a simple answer? I appreciate your efforts at wordpress.org, but in the end, it was just a mess. I know I’ll probably just go add yet another plugin for the summaries, but why then do they even bother with the excerpt field when I write a post? With articlelive, I can turn on the summary or not, but why can’t I find an answer for wordpress?

  32. Posted July 16, 2006 at 3:07 pm | Permalink

    There is a simple answer. Displayed in many places. I’m sorry that you didn’t get the answer in a reasonable length of time, you just might not have been looking in the right places.

    The answer is to change your the_content() in your index.php and other multi-post template files to the_excerpt() That’s it.

    You know, those two solutions are quite simple and I actually did find them while reading through the muck at WordPress.

    Unfortunately, when I tried changing the index.php, it went berzerk. The one little change caused the first post to repeat endlessly! I had to stop the browser! The “more” tag works fine, but it is just the first few words that you write. I decided to use the Post Teaser plugin, which is like the more tag.

    Not great solutions when you want a nice summary like the back of books, rather than the first few words.

    Thank you for the extra links, they seem promising. Makes no sense to have the summary field when writing the post, if it is not visible by default or without hacking.

    What URL settings? I don’t understand. Do you mean the Plugin? Did you activate it? Then you need to edit your WordPress Theme template files to put the UTW tags where you want them to appear on your blog. Davis has a UTW support forum I recommend you visit to get more specific help.

  51. Posted April 22, 2007 at 11:52 pm | Permalink

    Great post and informative site. I noticed you include site search tags AND Technorati Tags in your posts. Yet I was reading Christine’s forum and she says, “The tag links that display, in theory, will be picked up by Technorati; so you shouldn’t need to include an additional set of tags for Technorati.” Is there a reason why I would want to add both set of tags, as you do? Thanks!

    I am a new user of WordPress. I have been reading here and at the site for UTW and futzing with this to try to make it work, without success.

    Then I found this, someone with the same problem exactly, as far as I can tell, and there hasn’t been an answer since the 20th of March.

    I found the information about this plugin to be sadly lacking, starting with the very same question posed above.
    Even here there were too large gaps, though much was clear and I appreciate the effort made here. It would have helped to have PHP files showing the code inserted highlighted. I tried to make changes indicated here but it was guess work and I end up not knowing if I have been stupid or if the plugin simply doesn’t work. Since the author is not actively supporting it and as WP2.2 will include tagging it seems it would be an idea to give this a miss. Pity.

    Sorry for the delay in responding. This is usually a problem in installation, so delete the Plugin and upload it again. If it repeats the error, then there is likely a conflict with another Plugin. Deactivate them one by one and see if you can repeat the error.

    You should also know that UTW isn’t working well with the latest version of WordPress. WordPress is adding tags in the next big release, which is based upon much of UTW, so if you can hold off, you will be rewarded.

    The problem is that it’s sending me back to my home page… Maybe it has something to do with my subdomain? I can’t change it, its: blog.mydomain.com. I checked into Options > Tags and I can’t find where I could modify anything to make it work.

    I tried to post on UTW Webpage but my comment is awaiting moderation for 2 weeks so I thought maybe you could help me about it. Thx ^^

  59. Posted July 25, 2007 at 7:23 am | Permalink

    I am no longer offering support for UTW questions as the next version of WordPress will be offering tags and the current version of UTW has some technical problems that makes it incompatible with recent versions of WordPress.

    I wonder if other people are experiencing what I’m experiencing. If a post doesn’t have tags, I notice it doesn’t appear on the search results. Is this really the case? Some of our authors just don’t tag. Or do I have to do the autotagging thing. I’m still researching that also.

    Thanks for the help.

    I use the UTW v3.1415

  62. Posted July 30, 2007 at 2:51 pm | Permalink

    Doesn’t appear in search results where? On your blog? In Google? On Yahoo?

    Tags have nothing to do with a post not appear in any search results anywhere. But a tagged post gets double coverage as a post and a post within a category.

    People often get confused about tags and categories. It’s more important your posts are categorized, as they are your blog’s table of contents. Tags are like index words, micro-categories or sub-categories. If your people aren’t categorizing their posts, you need to remind them more, and the Category Reminder WordPress Plugin, which I highlighted in WordPress Plugins for Multiple Blogger Blogs, might help “remind” your contributors to categorize or tag their posts.

  63. Posted July 30, 2007 at 11:07 pm | Permalink

    Thanks Lorelle for your reply.

    Yes, I was talking about blog search. e.g. http://www.inboundpass.com/?s=uaap

    I tried deactivating the UTW plugin and the search worked normally– finding the missing posts. But when the UTW is activated. It seems to overlook the “No tags” posts I have.

    Anyone, the quick solution I did was to check “Automatically add categories as tags” option. So I won’t have posts without tags.

    Hope this one works.

    Thanks again.

    how can i publish a taglist without links?

  65. Posted September 4, 2007 at 2:56 pm | Permalink

    Hmmm, since they are supposed to be in links, as the rel="tag" inside of the link defines the word as a “tag”, why would you want to not put your tags in a link?

    If you just want a list of your tags, create a tag list on your blog however you want it to appear with this Plugin or in the next version of WordPress due out any moment, and copy the tag list from your blog as text. And you have a list of your tags in a text format to do with it what you want.

  67. Posted November 25, 2007 at 9:10 am | Permalink

    @eLPhi:

    UTW is no longer being supported and does not work in the last few versions of WordPress. If you haven’t updated WordPress, your blog is vulnerable to security attacks.

    To display full entries, you need to use a feed Plugin. If you use a feed Plugin to use feed content from other sites to replace content, shame on you. If you need to display excerpts of your own posts, this is called Asides and there are Plugins for that.

  68. Posted November 25, 2007 at 9:32 am | Permalink

    I’m not gonna use feeds from other sites. I just thought that UTW will have this feature like the one you mention here:
    WordPress Plugins for Related, Recent, Most Popular Posts and More.

    Similar Post: WordPress Plugin on the configuration: Post Options

    it has this option,
    {excerpt:number of words} an excerpt from the post…

    I’m not using UTW anymore, so i guess Similar Post plugin is my best choice if UTW doesn’t have this function?

    @ John:

    What’s better, an apple or an orange? They are two different things. Ultimate Tag Warrior doesn’t work any more and it was used for tags. All-In-One-SEO claims to be the do-it-all for you search engine optimization, though it doesn’t really do that. It just switches a few things around in your WordPress Theme. It can’t fix broken Theme code. It can’t force you to write with keywords and search terms, but it can help. But they are two completely different WordPress Plugins.

Christine Davis has morphed the features of the Ultimate Tag Warrior WordPress Plugin into Simple Tags and other Plugins which work with the new native tagging in WordPress.

    It is also no longer supported, if you read the introduction and comments. Take care in continuing to use it. It causes a lot of problems with the server in recent versions of WordPress, and will not work with the most recent.

    You should update your WordPress blog if you are using a version that continues to work with UTW as it is at risk from security vulnerabilities.

  87. Posted September 9, 2008 at 10:50 am | Permalink

    Did you read the announcement at the very top of the article? I’m not sure how more clear anyone can be. This Plugin has stopped support and will no longer work for any new WordPress version. Tags have been built into the core programming, with the help of the UTW Plugin author, and she’s produced some top notch WordPress Plugins that you can add to the new built-in tag feature, too.

    So the answer is the Ultimate Tag Warrior WordPress Plugin no longer works and should not be used on any WordPress blog.

    If you are continuing to use it on an old version of WordPress, that version has many security vulnerabilities and flaws that have been fixed in recent versions. It is at risk of attack and hacking. Upgrade immediately.

      This Plugin, as is mentioned at the top of the article, most of the features of this Plugin are built into current versions of WordPress. There are many Plugins that now deal with the new tagging feature of WordPress. Why you need to manually count keywords when tags are post specific and can be anything is odd, but either way, most of the function of this Plugin are now found in other tagging Plugins that work with the built in feature.
