The Suggest Terms feature helps when you’re writing content in WordPress. It becomes much easier for you to find the best taxonomy terms for your content.
Suggest Terms can show two metaboxes on your post editing screen:
- One metabox can help you browse and select from all your existing terms.
- One metabox can analyze your content and find new ideas for terms.
This image below shows the metabox where you can browse existing terms:
This next image shows the metabox that can analyze your content. In this screenshot, TaxoPress is suggesting terms that already exist on your site. TaxoPress can also create new ideas from services such as Dandelion and Open Calais.
The Settings for the Suggest Terms feature
Now let’s give you an overview of the changes you can make to the Suggest Terms feature. You can find this feature via the “Suggest Terms” menu link under the main “TaxoPress” menu link in WordPress.
TaxoPress Free users can customize the existing option for Suggest Terms. TaxoPress Pro users can create as many instances as they want.
Under the “General” tab, you can choose the default taxonomy that will load when users start editing a post. You can also choose which post types will get these metaboxes.
The “Show Existing Terms” setting controls how users can browse and select from all your existing terms. You can choose how many terms show by default, plus how they are sorted on the screen.
The “Suggest Terms” setting can analyze your content and find new ideas for terms. The easiest option is to use local tags. You can also also use the Dandelion API service to suggest terms (click here for documentation), and the Open Calais service (click here for documentation).
