wpForo – Topic Prefix & Tag Manager

The top level of forum organization is here! This addon allows you to create topic prefixes and manage topic tags easily. Topic prefixes can be used to categorize topics allowing you to reduce the total number of forums, merging less active forums and combining more topics into a single group. It’s  actually designed to make going through the forums a lot easier. You can apply predefined prefix to individual topics which is displayed before the topic title – for example ‘Help’, ‘Bug’, ‘Suggestion’, etc… Prefixes can be styled in various ways to allow users to easily identify them. In addition to lots of features, this addon allows you to add, edit, delete topic tags and convert them to prefixes.

wpForo Topic Prefix & tags Manager addon is actually designed to make going through the forums and finding threads with the similar content a lot easier. Topic prefixes can be used to filter forums and can be combined with a keyword search to help users find what they are looking for. You can see all topics grouped in a topic prefix by clicking the prefix. A group of forum prefixes can be attached to certain forum, thus each forum can have its own set of prefixes, specific to that section.

This addon allows your users to choose a thread prefix for each thread. Users can easily select an appropriate prefix from a list beside the title while posting a new thread – for example ‘New Album’, ‘New Song’, ‘Download’, ‘Suggestion’, ‘Help’, etc…

All prefix groups, prefixes and tags can be managed in Dashboard > Forums > Topic Prefix admin page. You can create prefix groups and bind to a certain forum. Prefix groups help visitors quickly find the correct topic prefix when they create a new topic. Also, the prefix groups allow you to connect prefixes to forums, so you can use all prefixes of a certain group in certain forum.

Tags are also topic categorizing and grouping components in forums. Finally, you can manage your topic tags very easy. You can add new tags, edit and delete in the Tags Tab. In addition, you can convert tags to prefixes while keeping tags or deleting them.

how many prefix can you insert by post ? with bbpress dev plugin we can use up to 5 prefix for 1 post (before title, after title and in body in full view ? thank you

10 months 16 days ago

Hi guillaume,
I think you’re confusing prefixes with other components. Prefixes are topic grouping features they cannot be added in the body of a post. Even more, prefixes are not designed for posts. Prefixes are topic components. You can set one prefix and multiple tags for a topic. So we call it topic prefixes. Here is the demo forum, you can register and test it: https://addons.wpforo.com/community/wpforo-topic-prefix-tags-manager/
And here is the doc: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/addons/wpforo-topic-prefix-and-tag-manager/

in fact i simply meant how prefixes could we insert? multiple?

10 months 15 days ago

Ok, I see what do you mean. As I mentioned above, this addon only supports one prefix per topic, there is no multiple prefix yet. It’ll be available in upcoming middle version.

I have site that has about 1`5 different Forums covering different kinds of animals and plants and topics. I have been looking for a way to have Tags organized so they are Forum specific. Right now I have just a list of about 150 Tags in the side bar. My question is will this new add on allow me to organize Taghs so they apply to only specific Forums

11 months 10 days ago

Hi Bud,
There is no pre-defined tags for forums, but you can predefine certain topic prefixes for certain forum. They are almost similar. Here are the steps:
1. Create X Prefix Group for X forum(1)
2. Create predefined topic prefixes in the X Prefix Group
3. And you’ll see the predefined prefixes in the Topi Prefix drop-down next to the topic title field in the topic creating editor. So your users will select predefined topic prefixes in certain forums. Here is the detailed documentation for Prefix Groups and Prefixes: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/addons/wpforo-topic-prefix-and-tag-manager/manage-topic-prefixes/#topic-prefix-groups

Thanks for the info Tom. I will have to think about it further. Right now I have a LONG Tag list accumulated,ated from all of the Forums. This is quite confusing for users., I am guessing then that Tags can not be signed to certain pre-fixes only ???? Or is there some way to manage tags for just a particular Forum in a site with multip[le Forums?

11 months 1 day ago

You can convert tags to prefixes. The conversion can be done either with deleting the tag or keeping the tag. Once you converted a tag to a prefix you’ll have all topics attached to that converted prefix. And the prefix can be attached to certain forum with the prefix group mentioned above.

Is there a feature that allows guests and users to add tags and change prefixes without editing?
This is necessary for forums with over 100 active topics.

11 months 11 days ago

Hi pinda,
There is no way to add prefix and tags without editing topics yet. We’ll add it in our to-do list for this month.

I am looking forward to it
