What Tags Are Fetched?

vbboarder - have vbadvanced cmps, links, dynamics and - soon - vbclassifieds running.

Will this mod fetch tags from all afore mentioned? This would be OUTSTANDING...

Btw: As for location , I too could do with a few pointers.

If you could get back to me on my question, cheers.

Wow, you got everything! :eek: That's cool, but I don't have vba dynamics, vba links, or vb classifieds myself so I can't test it for you.

Anyways, this mod will fetch all tags from VB forums and place them in a cloud box under the navbar (see pics). If the navbar is showing on all those $$$ mods of yours, then it should also show the tag cloud - you just need to output the global variable, tag_cloud, as the instructions say. That's another advantage of having the tag cloud near the navbar.... it can be easily included in other external mods and custom web pages (like those made with the WebTemplates mod with the header/ navbar included).

Sorry, your vote doesn't count since you haven't marked installed. For further support, you need to mark install. ;)

INSTALLED!!!!

[One Extra Vote....]

Is it possible to display the "forum specific tags" rather than the entire forum tags in forum specific pages ?

No, not currently possible with this mod. I decided against this feature because VB caches the tag cloud so there is no DB queries if you have caching enabled. I'll see if there's a way to filter forum specific tags with just 1 query while being able to use VB built-in tag cloud function and caching.

nice Mod but one more option will make it best thats choose the place :D

I'd love to see it be made able to collapse. Other than that, it works great! Thanks

Just Updated to 2.0: ALL feature requests were implemented!
2.0.0 New Features: See the 2nd post for a screenshot and template hook selection tips.
Auto templating – allows setting the location of the tag cloud anywhere on the page.
Tag cloud resides in a collapsible box and has a legend for the custom styles.
Tags that belong to the active forum or thread being viewed can have custom styles.
Added option to set preferred tags that will have custom styles to get them noticed more.

Update:
Reimport the new product xml file and allow overwrite.
Go to VB Options > Forum VBA Tag Clouds to set the locations of the tag cloud (default is below the navbar) and custom tag styles.

Note: if you enable the “Customize Active Tags?” option, then this mod will add 1 query to forumdisplay & showthread pages only. Tag clouds in vbAdvanced and forumhome should still have 0 queries if caching is enabled.

Module CMPS

Probably 9/10 already addressed somewhere - but - how do I put this mod into a CMPS Module?

Can someone point me either into the right direction 'by example' here, or to a tut. somewhere posted previously...

Sorry - haven't gotten my head around that one yet so help would be marvellously appreciated.

Cheers.

To display the tag cloud in vbAdvanced, go to VBA CMPS -> Default Settings -> Main Options -> add to “Portal Output Global Variables”:
Quote:

tag_cloud

Ted Clore 09 Oct 2008 03:48

I've done this and it isn't there. There must be something missing!?!

Can you give us a walk through for VBa CPMS?

IOW, there is no module.php so that a module can be made and put on a page where you want it.

I don't know how else to elaborate than what's quoted above. The tag cloud works fine for myself and other users. Are you using CMPS version 3.0.1 dated 4-24-08?

There is no module.php file - it's unneccessary. If you want custom placement of the tag cloud in CMPS pages, you use template hooking (with $template_hook or HTML comments) in VB Options -> Forum VBA Tag Clouds (read the 2nd post for further instructions), OR add a CMPS template module: go to VBA CMPS > Add Module > Template Module > and add to the Template Content box:
Quote:

<div>$tag_cloud</div>
.
Note that if adding "tag_cloud" to the Portal Output Global Variables in CMPS does not work for you, then adding a CMPS template module will also most likely not work for you. In that case, somehow your CMPS installation is messed up.

Just Updated to version 2.0.2 - optimized memory usage of this mod.

vbboarder 03 Nov 2008 21:05

Just tested this mod in VB 3.8.0-beta1 with no problems - all features work fine.

transparent 04 Nov 2008 00:36

Nice hack...

How do I get the tag cloud to display right above the "What's going on" section at the bottom of the FORUMHOME page? For my board having it right under the navbar is not visually appealing.

Thank you!
