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)

and replace with this code:

2) Put {vb:raw cloud_html} in FORUMDISPLAY where you want to show tag cloud.

Are you installing them correctly? Are you getting errors when you try to install them? Are they showing up in the Product Manager list? Adn they are shown as Active there (no line through them)?

I can never remember how experienced everyone is. And yes, I have known of people to install plugins wrong! They will try to install a plugin in the product page or as a style (!?!) or install a product from the plugin page or style page, or think you just ftp the file to somewhere on the server, or.... believe me, I've seen users do all sorts of things 'wrong' when trying to install a product or plugin!

Very weird that your live site won't take (any?) plugins. Are you getting anything in your error_logs?

Sorry Lynne i didn't intentionally try to come off as difficult. no biggie really was just commenting that i was happy it wasn't my ability's and something with the forum. its brand new and i have nothing to lose if i have to start from scratch. And i guess i was exaggerating. it takes some hacks and doesn't want to show others. no errors they just simply dont show. If its a plugin. and if its a template edit it will whack out whatever template im editing. its always a 50/50 gamble on that particular board. hmmm havent looked at the logs. but its still w3c compliant.

I didn't think you were being difficult, I was just saying I can't always remember a user's experience.

I do find that issue to be weird. I hope you can figure it out.

This product shows the tag cloud only on Forumdisplay. You want to show the tag cloud on Forumhome. There may be other products available to do that. This product only shows the tag cloud on Forumdisplay.
