Description

TagCloud can visualize a category overview graphically. Can generate clouds and lists. The representation is hierarchical, out of the most used category. These categories are shown larger or otherwise highlighted.

Usage / Features

A tag is provided to embed the configurable TagCloud into an article. The tag must be actively inserted into an article in the wiki to make the feature visible and usable. You can manually place the unconfigured tag in the article. This happens in the edit mode of the article. The tag can only be inserted in Wikicode, not in the Visual Editor.

Tag: <bs:tagcloud />
