Those KEYWORD CLOUDS that you see on some websites are cool aren’t they!?!
They’re also very simple to use in Drupal… but as I discovered… not so simple to setup. Or at least to find out how to setup anyway. So, for my failing memory and for anyone else out there that this may assist – here are some simple instructions to setup TAGADELIC CLOUDS.
Go and download the modules and FTP them into ../sites/all/modules on your website…
The views module provides a flexible method for Drupal site designers to control how lists of content (nodes) are presented. Traditionally, Drupal has hard-coded most of this, particularly in how taxonomy and tracker lists are formatted.
This tool is essentially a smart query builder that, given enough information, can build the proper query, execute it, and display the results. It has four modes, plus a special mode, and provides an impressive amount of functionality from these modes.
You need Views if:
Views can do a lot more than that, but those are some of the obvious uses of Views.
The tagadelic module generates a page with weighted tags, indicating how many times a category or tag has been used to categorize content on the site. The cool thing is that by merely altering font sizes, these lists suddenly gain a dimension: the more often a tag is used, the larger its font size. Tagadelic offers various ways to add terms and vocabularies in one tag cloud. By using the urls, you can create your own clouds pages. It also offers a sideblock for each taxonomy tree. Tagadelic offers dynamic URLs.
Implements a Views plugin that adds a “View Type” to the Views page and block named “Tagadelic” (in addition to “Teaser”, “Full Page”, etc…). When selected, the nodes returned by the view are themed as a “Tagadelic” block in the same vein as the tagadelic module. At least one vocabulary field should be added to the Field List.
That’s is…. simple
