Nimbus for Joomla tags from Phil Taylor

Nimbus for Joomla tags from Phil Taylor


Use the same tag cloud as mine on your site. . . First, a bit of history:

I came across this 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

Requirements for Nimbus

  • You need to have a license of Joomla Tags, or Nimbus won’t work nor make sense.
  • You need currently to have a way to define CRON on your server


Nimbus, Joomulus is based on Roy Tanck’s wp-cumulus, a wonderful Word Press 3D flash tag cloud plug-in.
