This addon is maintained. For clarification, while I do not have the time to give support for installations and bug reports for this addon (because there are no known bugs and it's working perfectly on my forum AVForums), I will be updating it with maintenance releases (as and when they are needed) which current license holders will be able to download. So no personal support, but yes, maintenance releases.
Also I am vetting who I sell licenses to, so if you wish to purchase a license, please click the purchase link and then send me a message as per the instructions in the product description. Thank you :)

This addon brings some additional essential features to tags:

  • Synonyms: so you can replace variants - synonyms - of a tag with your chosen version
  • Wikipedia: automatically attempt to get the Wiki for a tag when it is created. You can edit this to write your own definition.
  • Blacklist tags (with regex definitions) so they are never created. Useful for filtering out common or useless words.
  • Set default tags for forums
  • Batch update threads to add the ability to
    • find threads with specific tags
    • add tags to/remove tags from the resulting threads
  • and more
  • Blacklist tag button for each tag
  • Edit Wiki button for each tag to open the wiki edit page
  • Blacklist/delete tag buttons now update with Ajax so the page is not refreshed each time a tag is deleted or blacklisted. Very useful when managing tags on a specific page of the list. Deleting a tag used to refresh the page, reloading the list at the start. Now there is no page refresh saving a ton of time.
  • Inline selection of tags to delete or blacklist. 'Select all' helps speed up the process.
  • On the front end (utilising front end permissions), so that non-admins can edit the content, have a way to edit (supporting bbcode in the description) the tagline and description of the tag. Also change the front end so aside from showing the list of content that is using that tag, you see the tagline and description of the tag in addition to the list of content using the tag.
    • Uses Wikipedia API. Admin option to set any Wikimedia API.
    • Permission to manage tag wiki
    • With permission, when viewing the tag page (thread tags | XenForo Community), there’ll be an “Edit” link to manage the tag description and tagline.
    • Provides a tabbed interface to switch between the tag's recent content and the tag wiki description.
    • When saving a new tag or an existing tag with empty Wiki information, get the Wiki information from Wikipedia.
    • Follow Wikipedia redirects (fixes cases where Wikipedia entries fail to load).
    • If the wiki search returns a disambiguation page, there is an option to not use that.
    • If the wiki search does not return an exact match, there is an option to try a fuzzy match.
    • For when Wikipedia fails to return information for a tag, set the Wiki entry to the contents of the phrase "tagess_no_wikipedia_entry_exists" (default "No Wikipedia entry exists for this tag"). Note: if you do not want to display any text, set the phrase to a single space character to avoid attempting to repopulate it from Wikipedia each time it is saved.
    • Batch update process to populate tags with wiki information if they are blank or contain the phrase above. Note: This may take some time if you have a lot of tags to fetch as we limit the frequency of Wikipedia API calls.
Admin Batch Update Threads

  • In the Batch Update Threads search form, you can now search for threads which have specific tags.
  • When batch updating threads, you can now add or remove tags in addition to all the existing options. When adding a tag, the user that started the thread is credited.
Tag Suggestions

  • When creating a thread, after typing the thread title (when the title loses 'focus'), an ajax request will check to see if any tags are included in the title, if they are then they automatically get added to the tags list (they can be removed and more can also be added).
  • Suggested tags can be single and multiple words. E.g. If these tags exist: "I love John", "John Paul George Ringo", "Paul George Ringo", "Ringo" and a new thread title is "I love John Paul George Ringo a lot" then all the tags will be suggested.
  • Admin option to set the maximum number of words in a tag which will be auto suggested (default 3). This is to avoid too much processing when searching for tags within a title. If set to 3 words, the above example would not suggest the "John Paul George Ringo" tag as it contains 4 words.
  • To combat slowness when the server is finding tags to suggest, there is an admin defined list of stop-words to prevent suggesting tags with common words. Use of the stop words list can be disabled, enabled to ignore tags only where the first word of the tag is in the list or enabled to ignore tags which contain any of the stop words.
  • A default list is included. E.g. "A" and "I". If enabled, this would prevent the "I love John" tag from being suggested in the above example.
  • Plenty of them
  • Rebuild Caches -> Rebuild Empty Wiki Tags
  • Rebuild Caches -> Prune low usage tags
