Module Nimbus for Joomla! 1.6 & Joomla-Tags

Module Nimbus for Joomla! 1.6 & Joomla-Tags



I came across Joomulus module a while ago (Joomulus at #Joomla Extensions JED), it goes through your #Joomla! articles content and create a tag cloud.

A tag cloud or word cloud (or weighted list in visual design) is a visual depiction of user-generated tags, or simply the word content of a site, used typically to describe the content of web sites. Tags are usually single words and are typically listed alphabetically, and the importance of a tag is shown with font size or color.

This is the solution you are looking for, and you should not need to read any further if you DO NOT USE #Joomla! Tags from Phil Taylor.

But I am using a proprietary tagging solutions: Joomla Tags from Phil Taylor (

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

That’s why I decide to dump Joomulus, and mix both solutions (Joomulus, #Joomla tags) to create a new module: Nimbus (Free GPl v3)

So for resuming
