Tagging Tools plugin for Question2Answer
This is an event plugin for popular open source Q&A platform, Question2Answer. It allows you to select 'tag synonyms' - unwanted or duplicate tags that should be changed or removed.
For example if you had
websites as a tag, some users may tag a question with
website instead. With this plugin you can set
website to always be changed to
websites when a user enters it.
Installation & Usage
Download and extract the files to a subfolder such as
qa-pluginsfolder of your Q2A installation. Since the Github repo is updated regularly, a stable versioned package is also provided, e.g.
If your site is a different language from English, copy
qa-tt-lang-default.phpto the required language code (e.g.
qa-tt-lang-de.phpfor German) and edit the phrases for your language.
Log in to your Q2A site as a Super Administrator and head to Admin > Plugins.
Under "Tagging Tools", enter each pair of tags on a new line, separated by a comma. For example,
q2a,question2answer(without quotes) means that a tag of
q2awill be replaced by
helpon its own line means that tag will be removed.
Click the button to save changes. All future questions will replace your chosen tag synonyms.
If you have existing mistagged questions, tick the checkbox to replace all tags in older questions with your synonyms. WARNING: if you have a lot of questions on your site, converting all the old questions will take a long time. Version 1.5 now uses AJAX to edit a few posts at a time, however, it may still cause high MySQL and Apache CPU usage. It's recommended that you add tag synonyms a handful at a time to avoid too much overhead.
qa_tags_completethat are used for auto-complete. The server-side filter checks against all tags. In other words, if JS is turned off the user can input a tag not in the most popular 1000 but it must already exist.
