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.

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

wpcumulus 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





You can discover my module live at the bottom of this page.



  1. 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
  2. The name nimbus is coming from a certain type of clouds
  3. I need to clean the code before releasing, that’s all
