Before phpbb i use smf with this mod installed:

Tag Cloud
Tagging of Topics
Thread owner can add and remove tags to the topic.
Tag Admins can tag topics and remove tags.
Clicking a tag returns a list of tagged topics that have that tag.
Recent tagged topics on tag cloud page.

I'm not a programer so if somebody can convert this mod for phpbb...

Here's one MOD that should do what you want:

Here's one in the development forum: ... 400&hilit=

I am also interested in this.

The tagging link is interesting but it depends on an external site for "search results" when clicking on a tag.

I think it should instead use the normal phpBB search function and bring back topics with the same tag, if a user clicks a tag link....

If I were skilled enough I would write that and post it here myself but unfortunately I'm not... Anyone else? It seems the last poster there actually did what I am talking about but didn't release it!

I made a minor modification in viewtopic.php, now when i click a tag it send me to phpbb seach function. Just replace

// BoardTracker Tags Mod..

$BoardID = ""; // Your board ID on (optional)

$topic_tags = $forum_topic_data['topic_tags'];
if ($topic_tags != '') {
$tags = $lang['Topic_Tags'] . ": ";
$words = split(",", $topic_tags);
$tagurl = "";
foreach ($words as $word) {
$word = strtolower(trim($word));
$tags .= "<a href=\"$tagurl" . "$word" . "$BoardID\" rel=\"tag\">$word</a> ";

That is good mircesco, definitely heading in the right direction. I have been looking in search.php to try and find a way to make it bring back only topics with that exact tag, not just that word in the topic. Haven't had much luck yet but I have chopped out a lot of the GET / POST stuff so you simply add search.php?q=(query) or else you get a "No results" page, which would be handy for linking tags. I.e. each tag links to a dedicated search function for it. (So you would rename search.php to something like tags.php and use it for tags, then copy in the basic search function again for normal use).

A new version of the BoardTracker tags mod will be available very soon (today or tomorrow) which is fully integrated within the board and includes locally cached tag clouds, integrated tag search and much more - functionally the same as the version 2.1 currently available for vb.

I'll update our topic for the mod when it is ready but I can't update it in the mod db since that is currently closed to submissions.

To get an idea of how well integrated the tag search is you can have a look at our other search mod here.. ... 6&t=389680

You can see that one 'in action' on our own forums here..

Thanks for this mod. I'm still looking for a way to show tags cloud into my site for my topics. That's the way SMF tag mod working on and in my opinion Google (the most used search engine in my country) realy like this way to describe more acurate what is about in this topic.

More, i would like to include this tags into meta tag keywords for each topic to have more relevant keys. Right now i use phpbb-seo and i'm satisfied about this mod but i'm sure more improvments can be made. I also use wordgraph ( ... =#p2037662) to get a list of your forum's most used words.

Our tags mod allows you to put a tag cloud on any page you want and the cloud is stored locally in your db, as are the tags themselves so you can do anything you want with them.

See a demo of the vb version here (using tags from another board just for example).. ... =broadband

The mod can use mod_rewrite for seo friendly tag urls also.

You can also use the non-cached javascript version of the tag cloud to place on ANY site, not just your board.

The phpbb version is done now and just needs to be packaged up for upload so it will be available for you to try very soon.

hi there,

Is there a version of this compatible with phpb3 - RC3?

I think it's a great mod, but would need it for the most recent version of phpbb.

thanks very much.
