    Auto tag is working properly on windows server, but I am having difficulty on linux server. I found out that this plugin uses a function called "preg_match_all" and for some reasons, this functions doesn't return anything when I install my application on a linux server. I checked and UTF-8 is enabled on that server.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This sounds very cool plugin!

    Dose this plugin work with Elgg 1.7?

    I have tried, but I have some problem with Elgg 1.7.3.

    use this instead:

      $search = array ("/ß/","/(".DE_VOKALE.")u(".DE_VOKALE.")/","/y(".DE_VOKALE.")/");
      $replace = array ("ss","\\1U\\2","Y\\1");
      return preg_replace ($search, $replace, $wort);

    and replace DE_VOKALE with your settings...

    Thanks for a useful plugin.

    How can i change so it will work with swedish language? We have å, ä, ö,Å,Ä,Ö and it will be "auml;" instead as it can´t read that character


    Is there anyone who can give an advise to solve this problem?

    Thanks agan for this plugin

    any plan for 1.8?

  • Jeroen Dalsem 834 days ago

    @correodabid no plans yet. Maybe a client will migrate, but that will not happen within the next 4 months.

    What a great plugin! Got it working in 1.8. Only one minor irritance. It wants to tag nbsp. Any way to omit this?

  • Ben Borges 470 days ago

    what did you do for it to work on 1.8 ?

  • Jeroen Dalsem 470 days ago

    @knussear you could add it to the stopwords.

    It really amazes me that this plugin, although it is developed for Elgg 1.5 still works for you! Great! If you wish to share the changes needed, you can submit a pull request here: https://github.com/ColdTrick/autotag

  • knussear 464 days ago

    Unfamiliar with how to submit a pull request @jdalsen  please advise if you can send me info on how to do this -  I replaced about 3 instances of extend_view() with elgg_exten_view() and it worked! I'd REALLY like to add this functionality to other page types - e.g. photos, videos etc. is this possible?
