What does this product do?
It displays a tag cloud of all tags used within actual forums on top of FORUMDISPLAY.



How to install?
Just import product. Done.

How to uninstall?
Just deinstall product. If you did either template edit below, then undo the template edit.


Optional: To also only show threads within actual forums once a user clicks on a tag on showthread: (removed since not possible in 4.x).


How to change location of tag cloud box?

1) Find this code from manage plugins > plugin forumdisplay_start (Forum Tags)

I just manually inserted the tag cloud on my 4.1.4 board.

Placed it after {vb:raw template_hook.forumdisplay_below_threadlist} in FORUMDISPLAY. (http://www.radioctrl.com/f4/)

Great mod!

I guess it depends on the board and how the members use tags.

example if you were to run a sports forum and you used tags on all your threads, 'football', 'rugby', 'tennis', 'cricket', 'running' etc etc

These tags would appear in the cloud, If I was only interested in football then I would click the tag and look at all threads with that tag steering me clear from tennis and cricket and so on..

Is it possible to edit the font size of this? I would like to increase this, but only for this.

Thanks Lynne!

You can do that via CSS. Just preface them all with the id, like #forum_tags a.level1, #forum_tags a.level2 , etc.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)
