Demo:

http://network.zoints.com/tags

If you choose to send tags to Zoints (optional) you can see what we do with them and how we send you traffic and nice inbound links: http://zoints.com

A great article on the importance of tagging can be read here.

The Zoints Thread Tags System will improve forum side search, SEO, and traffic for forums that choose to utilize it. And in my opinion, it's just plain cool

When a member creates a new thread, they can now input a series of "tags". Tags are simply keywords that describe the thread.



If you then go to your-forum.com/tags you will be presented with what is called a "tag cloud". The more times a tag is used, the larger the text grows. As you can see, the tags are also searchable.



Clicking on one of the tags in the cloud then lists all of the threads that are tagged with that particular keyword. The default option lists tags in a forumdisplay format. There is an option in the admincp to use a simple format.



Clicking on the thread title of one of the above threads then takes you to the thread. If you have the option on, the tags the thread are tagged with are also listed above the thread. Clicking one of those tags takes you to all the threads on the forum tagged with the same tag. Search engine spiders are going to have a field day with this



The thread starter and moderation staff have a slightly different view which allows for administration of tags:



The forum's tags are also searchable via the search dropdown. The advanced search option allows for a variety of additional criteria to be seached for. Your members create a whole new (and highly efficient) forum search engine!



If you have the option on in the admincp and register your forum, once every hour, your tagged threads in publically viewable forums are linked via the corresponding interest tag on the Zoints Forum Network. For example, if you go to http://zoints.com/tag/children you will see what is pictured below. Not only is this a great relevant inbound link for SEO, but you will get traffic from Zoints direct to these threads!

Another example of this in action: http://zoints.com/tag/music

This 3.7 version is only a port of the 3.6.x version, and is compatible with the 3.7 changes to the AJAX protocol. If you have any problems please post here or at our network forums. Sorry for the delay!

To Upgrade:


Just upload the next product.xml via the AdminCP and upload the new version of zointstags.js to the /tags/ directory.

No, this does not integrate with the regular tags - as stated above, this is currently just a port of the 3.6.x mod.

@iogames, there will be a 3.6.10 compatible version later tonight uploaded in the 3.6 thread.

Ok...I have this asking these questions for about a year now....here and on zoints.com.....guess it won't hurt to try here either....

Issue #1:
Ok...so I am looking at the tags/index.php file looking for ways to edit the order posts are displayed. I want to display them in order by first post with the newest listed first. By default the threads are listed by last post. So I am looking at the code and find some places this can be edited in the file.....

This spot in the file:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I bet if I change 'lastpost' it will pop out the results I am looking for....I just don't know what it needs to be changed to....and I am wondering if this is the file that I need to edit to display the correct post icons...
Issue #2:
What template does this page use?

http://gridironfans.com/forums/tags/index.php/49ers/

I am trying to edit it so it shows the correct post icon. What template needs to be edited?
So can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance.

****UPDATE****


I found a solution to the first Issue....

To display the tag results by date thread started simply replace all instances of 'lastpost' with 'firstpostid'. I found three instances of the code.

Hi chatz,

I have to imagine it was custom code as I have not seen that shared. We actually do have something like that in a version we'll release in the future. If you are handy with code, it would likely be possible to piece it together from what exists and by looking at the different templates and such, but I can't guarantee it.

Yeah I would like that very much too. I have also seen it.

And to be able to custom nominate 'top 10 tags' in a side column would be an EXCELLENT way to steer the direction of a forum and to educate newbies (and thus keep regulars happy)

Are Zoints tags going to get some love in the future? They have been neglected for FAR too long now..
