I just did a quick test of this on my local development site. When I add an auto-tag watched word, the test works for me, but so far I haven’t been able to get it to auto tag a topic when a post contains one of the watched words. I’ll look into this some more.
Edit: I did a quick test of this on a hosted Discourse site and am running into similar issues to what I’m seeing on my development site. Testing this on my dev site, what I’m finding is that the
auto_tag method isn’t being called when I create a new topic that contains an auto-tag word. If I edit an existing topic to add an auto-tag word, the
auto_tag method is called and the topic gets tagged.
I’ll move this topic to the bug category.
