If you’re a publisher who adds a lot of content on your WordPress site, it’s easy to end up with an uncategorized. Your writers can easily forget to add relevant Tags, Categories, and the other taxonomy terms you need
The TaxoPress plugin is a WordPress plugin that we recommend because it can analyze your content and automatically create new terms. This is possible with the “Auto Terms” feature” in TaxoPress.
The Auto Terms feature is introduced in the video below. Underneath the video, you’ll also find a text and image guide to using this feature.
Starting now, you’ll find the text version of this introduction to TaxoPress. For this example, I’ve created a WordPress post, using text from the “About Us” page on WordPress.org.
When I publish this post, TaxoPress scans the post and creates new terms, as you can see in the image below.
You just adjust how sensitive this Auto Terms feature is. You can choose a setting that provides a few, accurate suggestions. Or you change the setting to produce more suggestions, but they may be less accurate.
This Auto Terms feature can work with any taxonomy and post type. For example, in the image below, I have a WooCommerce product. TaxoPress has scanned the content and created new terms into the “Product tags” area.
In this next screenshot, you can see an example with bbPress. In this example, TaxoPress has scanned a new bbPress topic and automatically created the “Topic Tags”.
This Auto Terms feature is built on top of two external services: Dandelion and Open Calais. You can use either one (or even both) to analyze your content You will need to get an API key to use Auto Terms: click for Dandelion instructions and click here for Open Calais.
If you’re not ready to trust an automated system to add new terms, you can choose to have these terms appear as suggestions. This allows you to see all the terms produced by Dandelion or Open Calais, and you can then manually choose which ones to use.
TaxoPress is the best way to organize and optimize your WordPress content. We’ve also written about the Synonyms feature in TaxoPress. This video is a broad introduction to TaxoPress:
