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)

Hi,
I did not managed to put at in one of the "usc_block" Templates.
But is is working in the "usc_sidecolumn_left" Template so I add the code there.
I do have now the Blocks on the left side and under that a "Free flying" Tag Cloud. But I think it is looking good in my Style.

The Code in the End of the "usc_sidecolumn_left" Template:

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

See how it looks like: http://brasil-web.de/forum

Grrtings

This hack is working great, except that when the new tags are posted, the links go to blizzardforums.net/tags.php instead of blizzardforums.net/forums/tags.php. What would i edit to fix this problem? I am using automatic tags if that makes any difference.

It works great when you are at my forums in blizzardforums.net , but I am used VBAdvanced and it the my main index.php is in my root directory and not my /forums/ directory so on my blizzardforums.net main page the tags point to blizzardforums.net/tags.php instead of blizzardforums.net/forums/tags.php.

Any help appreciated, thanks!

would it be possible to have the links redirect from the base so /../forums/tags.php because i use this outside of my forums directory and this causes the tag links to not work

$vbcloud is the wrong variable.

try $tag_cloud

It's tied in to the rest of the skin, so I don't know how effective it will be for you. In other words it uses images and gradients from directories on my server to knit everything together.

You could possibly clean it up and use it....

I'll PM it to you.

Hmmm, I've imported the product, then put the variable in my sidebar block, yet no tags show. Am I missing something?

EDIT: OK, it works fine with TechGuy's product, thanks! However, I placed the variable in one of my sidebar blocks, and it shows it in another box inside the sidebar box. How do I stop this?
