Announcing Module nimbus for all users of Phil Taylor Joomla! tags
I am a very happy user of Joomla! tags from Phil Taylor. My only complaints is that it is still not part of #Joomla!® core.
Joomla!® Tags is a #Joomla Extension for adding tags to #Joomla!® Content.
Use Joomla Tags to allow content classification by keywords (Tags), can also be used to create virtual categories to add content into, over coming #Joomla!® single section/category structure

In order to display all my tags (more than 1500 currently), I did develop for myself a small module that is attracting visitors attention. It is nothing fancy but just a module that is able to query Joomla! tags internal database and create a fancy flash applet using wp-cumulus
WP-Cumulus allows you to display your site’s tags, categories or both using a Flash movie that rotates them in 3D. It works just like a regular tags cloud, but is more visually exciting. Clicking the tags can be a little hard (depending on your speed setting) but does take you to the appropriate page :).
The sources code for the Flash movie are available from wordpress.org.
You can discover my module live at the bottom of this page.
- If you don’t have or use Joomla! tags, this module wont be useful at all! You will have to search for a custom or alternate solution in JED
- The name nimbus is coming from a certain type of clouds
- I need to clean the code before releasing, that’s all
