  • I had it working but for some reason the tags now lead to a page with nothing on it (other than the normal background etc). I now have to figure out whether it is conflicting with another plugin.

     

  • @Woodward.. it's not the tag_cumulus.  It's search and taging

  • @pedro - just trying it out and noticed it isn't working for non english tags. could you verify this issue and provide a fix for it possibly?

     

    thanks.

  • I had this working before, but now it won't. You said:

    If you want to use it you must do this:

    $body .= '<div id="tag_cumulus_container">';
    $body .= elgg_view_title('Tags');
    $body .= display_tag_cumulus(0,50,'tags','object','','','');
    $body .= '</div>';

    Where do I put this?

  • Is it possible to change the size of the window. I use this theme :

    http://demo.buyelggthemes.com/btalk/

    and when I add the code given for the custom_index, the part of active windows doesn't full the block.

  • I had a hard time getting this to work. But I noticed that you used an old version of swfobject.js v1.4 so I replaced it with swfobject.js version 2.2. Then I edited tagcumulus.php for swfobject.js v2.2 which has a different way of specifying parameters. It now works in Firefox and Internet Explorer for me but for some reason Firefox was looking for the file tagcloud.xml file at: mod\tag_cumulus\vendors\tagcloud.xml. So I copied the xml from the parameter "tagcloud" to create the missing file.

  • hmm maybe im missing something here, how exactly do i add this to a page?  It shows up in the search just fine I just want to add it to say the index page.

  • place is in the header:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://xxx xxx .com/mod/tag_cumulus/vendors/swfobject.js"></script>

    Then place this anywhere you want cumulus: (sizing to suit needs)

     <?php 

     

                            if(is_plugin_enabled('tag_cumulus')){

     

                            echo '<div style="width:200px; height:200px;margin:55px 150px 0px auto;">';

     

                            echo '<div id="tag_cumulus_container" style="height:220px;">';

                            echo display_tag_cumulus(0,35,'tags','object','','','') . '</div>';

     

                            echo '</div>';

     

                            }

     

                            ?>

  • Hello Guys,

     

    My name says it all. I have no clue on web development and would love to learn.

    I am a novice if at all in web design. A student helped me design www.ppsz.com but now he has exams and will not be around for the next 3 - 4 months. So it is upto me to take it forward. The site is designed using Elgg1.6

    I would like to welcome you all on the site as new members www.ppsz.com to test it and tell me what to do to make it better.

    How can I add this neat widget on my website? What page do I put it on and where? What path?

    Please help.

  • First upload the unzipped file to your mod folder.  Go to your admin and enable the plug in.

    Now this will put the tag cumulus on your site.  As for placing the cumulus, you can place this anywhere as in the above comment from @goofbucket

  • Is it possible to restrict the tagcumulus to tags only on speciifc aeas i.e. only tags on frends or contacts etc.

     

  • Hi, can anyone help me out on this? I have download the plugin and put it in my /mod/ folder, enable it in the admin sections but how do I get it to display the word inside of the box?

  • this plugin is sweeeeeet.

    Nice one bruva.

    Chalkiex.

  • Nice plugin...

    It was easy to get it enabled and operable as is, however I'm having a hell of a time getting it working on my custom index page.  I've narrowed the problem down severely.  Without boring you as to how I know.  For some reason it's not retrieving my tags, but only when on custom index. Elsewhere it works fine.  From Chrome Devtools after <div id="tag_cumulus"> it shows:

    <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://group-think.org//mod/tag_cumulus/vendors/tagcloud.swf" width="200" height="200" id="tagcloud" name="tagcloud" bgcolor="#DEDEDE" quality="high" wmode="transparent" flashvars="hicolor=0x00ACD8&amp;tcolor=0x00ACD8&amp;tcolor2=0x00ACD8&amp;mode=tags&amp;distr=true&amp;tspeed=200&amp;tagcloud=&lt;tags&gt;&lt;/tags&gt;">

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

  • opps... It copied weird...

    <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://group-think.org//mod/tag_cumulus/vendors/tagcloud.swf" width="200" height="200" id="tagcloud" name="tagcloud" bgcolor="#DEDEDE" quality="high" wmode="transparent" flashvars="hicolor=0x00ACD8&tcolor=0x00ACD8&tcolor2=0x00ACD8&mode=tags&distr=true&tspeed=200&tagcloud=<tags></tags>">

     

  • I got it working, looks great.

    THANKS Pedro.

  • I just found out why the tag cloud might be empty on some installations. It worked for me on my test site but at first not on a quite fresh installation (or just on the vazco_mainpage respectively). It has not been mentioned so far, so I want to explain the tag_cloud call:

    display_tag_cumulus(0,50,'tags','object','','','');

    The second parameter (50) gives the number of tags to show, i.e. the 50 most used tags in this case. But if there are less different tags used at all, nothing shows. Reducing the number helped in my case. Start for example with

    display_tag_cumulus(0,20,'tags','object','','','');

    or even less in case it still shows nothing. When more tags are used, this number can be increased again. The files in which changes might become necessary are example.php in the main mod directory and tag_cumulus.php in /views/default/tag_cumulus.

  • Another fix. When someone clicks on the tags the search results would not be shown properly until the following file is updated

    /mod/tag_cumulus/views/default/output/tagcumulus.php

     

    Now, replace the 126th line with the following one

    $item->url = $vars['url'] . "pg/search/?tag=". urlencode($tag->tag);/* . $object . $subtype;*/

     

    This is a minor bug

  • Hi, instead of tags, I want to be able to define what words should appear and the URLs they link to. How can I do this? Thnx in advance for any and all help.

    MIKE

  • Hello guys! Somebody knows how to put the plugin tag_cumulus in the main page? I'm using custom_index_widgets as the index manager. Some instructions including the exactly path file, the exactly code and any important details, would be very welcome!

  • @Leandro did you get something ? would also be interested ... 

  • Hi,

    Like 2 other users, I'd like to know if there is a way to get the tags from a specific area. For instance, if I go on the main page of a group, is it possible to have the tags of this group only?

    Thanks,

     

  • Can we have the .fla? maybe for a donation?

  • This plugin doesnt work with latest Tidy Pics Beta
