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 (http://www.joomla-tags.com)
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
- You want to use/have a license of #Joomla! tags from Phil Taylor (http://www.joomla-tags.com): You can use the module Nimbus to have a great visual effect
- You dont want to pay for a tagging solution, go for Joomulus (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/6493/details) or #Joomla! Tags (http://www.joomlatags.org/)
