[DEV] -> Tag Cloud

Post by nathanr » Wed Apr 19, 2006 11:36 am

MOD Title: Tag Cloud [phpbb]
MOD Description: Automatically generates a Tag Cloud based on post content for your PHPBB forums
MOD Version: Dev

Demo Board: www.cliqee.com

We've created a MOD that automatically trawls your database within a specific time range / number of posts, it then pulls all the posts apart, takes out common words, bb code, html etc and generates a list of the top keywords (tags).

The script then taks the top X keywords, formats them all nicely in any colou of choice, font, or random font, sizes them all by weight, and turns them into links, these links automatically take you to the search results on your forum for said word.

The Script can be configured to either load a small selection of tags in real time, or it can generate a nice big tag cloud X times a day and output it to a file on your server which can easily be included into your phpbb templates. (the latter being our preffered choice)

Tag Clouds are nice, they are perfect for search engine optimisation, look rather good and are obviously nice and useful.

Have a look and see it in action here

This is not yet a MOD, well a published one, if you think it should be give me a pm or leave a message on our forum!

Cheers people

if its not yet published make it DEV not APLHA - alpha means there is code avaible
All MOD downloads should be back now - Sorry for that and serious lack of support! - If anyone wants to take over or help with any of my MODs the offer would be apreciated as I have little time for phpBB Modding recently!

Again very sorry for not supporting these MODs recently.

Whoops sorry about that, I do have the code [obviously] but its not available as yet!

Any feedback peeps? we'd like to hear what you thought of the idea, whether you'd like to see it as a mod or not etc..

Pretty sweet looking MOD. If you ever get around to releasing it I'd be glad to integrate it into a Cashmod/phpBB version of Trendio.

Hello,

2 months have passed since last post and I was wondering wether you finally decided to release the code of your mod.

Cheers
