What this plugin does

This plugin lets you call the tag cloud on any page. We wanted a tag cloud in a side column on our forum, and also the freedom to call it from within any template.

Live Demo

You can view the plugin in action on AdminFusion

Installation Instructions

1. Login in to the AdminCP -> Plugins and Products -> Manage Products
2. Click the Add/Import Product link at the bottom of the page and browse to the plugin's xml file.
3. Add the following variable where ever you want the tag cloud to appear:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4. If you want to display just the cloud (i.e. without the category) open up the tag_cloud_search template and replace everything with the code below:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Version Information:
1.01 -- Updated to make compatible with Vbulletin Blog
1.02 -- Script rewrite. Fixed time stamp issue, blog issue and other minor problems.
1.03
Now returns the most popular tags as opposed to the most searched for tags.
Some minor optimizations made.
Instructions revised (uses tag_cloud_box template instead of tag_cloud_search)

OK I got it to work, but I can't see the text because it is too light of a color. How can I change the color so it's readable?

Thanks!

A quick fix would be to make a new class with whichever color you want links to be (presumably the same as your forum links) and just apply a div around the $tag_cloud with that class.

After looking at your forum a better idea would be to follow step number 4 in the mod instructions where you replace tag_cloud_box with that code and make your own sidebar block instead of using the mod's code so that it will follow your css.

I just noticed the same thing while troubleshooting a problem with users selecting their time zone. I was hoping the new version would fix it.

i have come up with a another temp fix untill this guy accually fixed the thing

here is the catch though

tag cloud will not show on the following pages
showthread, forumdisplay, search

i did it on my site here is the fix if you want to do it but i realy hope this guys just fixes the mod cause ya its nice to have every where just blows that it dont work fully

here is the fix though

Go to plugin manager and find:
CLOUD > GLOBAL START

Replace Everything with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Remember this is a temp fix as was my last one untill this guys fixes these problems

the tag box will be disabled on the pages that show the time well the pages that matter most i should say

but ya just do that and it will be fine untill this guy fixes this crap
