TaxoPress has a feature that can analyze your content and automatically add new terms. This will be very useful for anyone who creates a lot of content.

This feature works by integrating with either the Dandelion or Open Calais systems to scan content and create terms.

An example of automatically adding new terms #

Let’s see an example of how this feature works. I’ve created a new post, using the text from the “About Us” page on

When I publish this post, TaxoPress scans the post and adds new terms, as you can see in the image below:

You just adjust the sensitivity of this feature. For example, if you’re using the Dandelion integration, you can choose the “Dandelion API confidence value”. You can configure the setting to provides a few, accurate new terms. or a wide range of new terms.

The "Dandelion API confidence value" setting that provides a few, accurate suggestions

This feature can work with any taxonomy and post type. For example, in the image below, I have a WooCommerce product. Using the Dandelion integration, TaxoPress has scanned the content and added new terms into the “Product tags” area.

In the next screenshot, you can see an example with bbPress. In this example, TaxoPress used the Open Calais integration to scan a new bbPress topic and automatically added new terms to the “Topic Tags” area.

How does this Auto Terms feature work? #

This Auto Terms feature to add new terms is built on top of two external services: Dandelion and Open Calais. You can use either one (or even both) to analyze your content. The option to use these services is available only in TaxoPress Pro.

You will need to get an API key to use Auto Terms: click here for Dandelion instructions and click here for Open Calais.

Once you have an API key, go to “TaxoPress”, then “Auto Terms” in your WordPress admin menu. You can enter your API key here on the “Sources” tab.

If you are nervous about trusting an automated system to add terms, you also have the option of addition of having these terms appear as suggestions. This allows you to see all the terms produced by Dandelion or Open Calais, and manually choose which ones to use.
