This is my first mod to be released in vb org. Its a simple mod which helps you to show vbulletin tags in a vbdrupal block. If you have suggestions to improve, please drop them in here. Please note the vbdrupal 5.7 is compatible with vb3.7.x hence I have released this mod here. here.

What does it do:
This hack is for tagging feature introduced in vb3.7x. It uses vbulletin's tag cloud templates to show a tag cloud on drupal block:

Steps to Install


Backup
- Make sure you have vbdrupal installed and working

Hello redraider,

thanks for sharing this! Drupal seems to be a great companion for vBulletin. Will this create a bridge to Drupals taxonomy system or will it just display the vB tags somewhere on the Drupal pages and you have to add the same tags again with Drupal taxonomy?

all the best,
Sacha

This will just display the vb Tags in a drupal blocks/ nodes and is not a bridge

I am looking into combining the two (drupal tags + vbuleltin tags) , but that is more complex.

I am again looking at Drupal/vB/vbSEO. A major attraction is the Drupal tag cloud. I wonder if it is possible to associate Drupal tags to a vB thread. I need a way to show ALL content, Drupal AND/OR vB content based on ONE tag system. Has anyone seen/done this?

I can't seem to get the tag cloud to show up properly... it just shows the code (minus the actual <style> tags).

It seems to me that you havent put the input format as php code for the block ...that is why all the code is escaped'
