Installing Tagaroo in your WordPress blog is just like installing any other WordPress plugin, with one additional step.
If you’d like to review the official WordPress instructions on installing plugins, visit Wordpress.org. This would be a good idea if you’ve never installed a plugin before.
One: Make certain your blog and browser meets these requirements: 1) You must be running a compatible version of WordPress (the most recent version we currently support is WordPress 3.5); 2) You must have a hosted site (or your own server) where you have access to install plugins. Blogs hosted on Wordpress.com won’t work with Tagaroo; and 3) When you’re writing a new post Tagaroo requires IE6, IE7, Firefox or Safari. We’ve tested it briefly with Opera and Flock, but no promises.
Two: Download Tagaroo. If your browser doesn’t do it for you, then unzip the file. When you’re done you’ll have a folder called “tagaroo” Upload that folder to the “wp-content/plugins” folder on your blog where the rest of your plugins are.
Three: Go to your site, navigate to the plugins section and activate Tagaroo.
Four: Like Akismet and some other plugins, Tagaroo needs a key to operate. This key gives you access to the Calais service -that’s the engine behind Tagaroo that allows it to automagically locate tags in your posts. To get your key, go to www.opencalais.com and follow the registration instructions. Registration has two steps: first, registering at the site, and second, registering for an API key. It takes about one minute and the key will be immediately emailed to you. We’ll try to make this easier in the future.
Five: When you receive your key, copy it and go to the settings page in WordPress. Click on tagaroo and paste the key into the “key” space. Click and you’re done - start writing!
Tagaroo helps make blogging better by automatically suggesting relevant tags and images for each of your posts.
