What does this product do?
It displays a tag cloud of all tags used within actual forums on top of FORUMDISPLAY.



How to install?
Just import product. Done.

How to uninstall?
Just deinstall product. If you did either template edit below, then undo the template edit.


Optional: To also only show threads within actual forums once a user clicks on a tag on showthread: (removed since not possible in 4.x).


How to change location of tag cloud box?

1) Find this code from manage plugins > plugin forumdisplay_start (Forum Tags)


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

and replace with this code:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Your mod is working great

But the cloud only shows in alphabetical order. I know this is a vB thing, but can you tell me how to make it display most used?

Thanks!

It does display the most used tags in that forum. There is a sort line further in the code that sorts them in the plugin using the forumdisplay_start hook location:

You can try removing it and see if you get what you want then.

I think you would have to modify the plugin that uses the hook location "forumhome_start" to do that - probably just the $find/$replace variables at the end if you can find a unique bit of code to find/replace.

It is for the forumdisplay page only.

The vb3 version of this mod is unusable on large forums, has anything been done with this script to make it less server intensive? Why does the query need to be done every-time someone views the page, why can't it be cached for an hour or day or whatever?

No, nothing has been done. It's marked as reusable code, so if you want to rewrite the code to cache the information, then you are welcome to do so and then share that version. Some users who were using the 3.x version asked to have it upgraded to work with 4.x and so I did so with Thorsten's permission.

It would be interesting to see this in a forum widget.

Do I understand it correctly that this shows ALL tags, not only the tags used in the forum/subforum where the tag cloud is displayed?

The tags are forum specific. You can see the query in the forumdisplay_start hook. Widgets don't have forumids (are not forumid specific), so you couldn't make this a widget or block.

That makes this very interesting.

I hardly see the use of widgets without them being forum specific. I guess I need forum widgets to have forumids then.

What I actually meant was you can't just have this Tag Cloud as a widget unless you had one for every forum you want a tag cloud for. You can't just put this into a widget and have it work since the cms has no forumid. You'd have to modify the query to point to a specific forum. I know what I mean, I'm just saying it badly. :/
