  • joomla_cms

    joomlatags.with.adobe.flash

     

     

    I did code a small PHP script that should be use in a Cron and that use the component Joomla tags of Phil Taylor to output a Flash Tag Cloud !

    How it works

    A small php scripts joomlatags.php run regularly and output a XML file (tags.xml) that will be displayed by tagcloud.swf. This script is currently hardcoded to work with Joomla Tags from Phil Taylor but can be changed according to your needs.

     

     

    Tag cloud generator

    Put the file joomlatags.php OUTSIDE of the root of your site. It must NOT be accessible to by the web server, as it contains the Mysql password in plain text!

    Open the file joomlatags.php and change the settings at the beginning of the file, the most important settings are well documented.

    Decide how often you would like to update the cloud, and define a Unix Crontab, for example If I would like to refresh my tag cloud at one o’clock in the night, I may define 1 0 * * * *  php /pathto/joomlatags.php

    Tag cloud viewer

    Copy all others files to the root or directory accessible by apache.

    • index.php
    • swfobject.js
    • tagcloud_serif.swf
    • tagcloud.swf
    • tags.xml

    Run at least once the Tag Cloud Generator joomlatags.php

    Point your browser to the location where you place index.php

     

    http://tags.waltercedric.com/

    Limitations

    I have more than 1000 tags defined, so in order to keep MY cloud readable, the script joomlatags.php either

    • Allow you to remove tags that are not enough represented
      //tags below this threshold wont be displayed in cloud
      $mintagCount = 2;
    • Or limit the number of entries with SQL
      limit 0, 100;

    Don’t output too much tags or it may be slow on some machine.

    Output is different in some browser: try Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Opera. Only Firefox render differently the cloud than all others browser.

     

    Based on

    Based on Roy Tanck's (http://www.roytanck.com/) Wordpress 3D flash tag cloud plug-in, swfobject.js by Geoff Stearns (http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/) for the embedding of the tag cloud.

    Links

  • I am currently checking all articles without tags, so far only 622 articles (on 1359 articles) have no tags at all...

    For those, that want to list all articles having no tags, fire up your favorite SQL browser, and just execute:

    select title from jos_content where id not in (SELECT contentid FROM jos_tag_category_map);

    This will return all articles without any tags.

    I am slowly trying to change that. By the way, It seems more and more people browse my homepage again (50'000 per months) which is 1/10th of last year, but it goes up everyday. As always, no good content, no high page rank.

    I will try to concentrate a bit on Joomla Comment development, and also publish some good articles that are waiting  in my draft folder.

  • I have way too much article now on this site...I just can't find any articles anymore (except with Google). That's the right time to introduce tags!

    Tags are used to store information about a document, image or other online content to help searching. Social networking web sites such as Flickr.com (photo-sharing) and del.icio.us (bookmark sharing) use member-created tags as a means of organizing and popularizing content.

    Unfortunately Joomla! does not have this functionality in its core... but thanks to Joomla! extensible plugin architecture, many solutions are available:

    Joomla Tags Component and Tag Cloud Module

    A promising component with Ajax and nearly all functionality of joomla! Tags, it is for sure not as mature and still in alpha stage for both Joomla! 1.0 and Joomla! 1.5.x

    Homepage: http://www.fijiwebdesign.com/products/joomla-tag-component.html
    Forum: http://www.fijiwebdesign.com/component/option,com_fireboard/Itemid,54/

    Installation:
    You'll need to install the Tag Component and the Tag Content Plugin and publish it in order to get it working.
    Optional are the Tag Cloud Module and the Auto Tag Plugin.

    Tag Cloud Component Features:

    Joomla Tag Content Plugin Features:

    • Displays the tags inline in articles
    • Registered users can add tags.
    • Adding tags is done via AJAX in the background, while the tags update automatically.

    Joomla Tag Cloud Module Features:

    • Displays a tag cloud - alphabetical, with tag density determining size of the tag.
    • Displays a related tag cloud - A density based cloud for the content being viewed, whether section, category, or list of tagged articles, or list of tags.

    Joomla Auto Tag Plugin Features:

    • Automatically tags each Content Item when viewed.
    • At the moment, single keyword tags are pulled from the title, however we plan to add full context analysis, 2,3 word phrases, stemming etc. in the future versions.

    So you can expect to enjoy tags on my site in a near future... as soon as I did test all 3 solutions on my test site.

    I came across Joomulus module a while ago (Joomulus at Joomla Extensions JED), it goes through your Joomla! articles content and create a tag cloud.

    A tag cloud or word cloud (or weighted list in visual design) is a visual depiction of user-generated tags, or simply the word content of a site, used typically to describe the content of web sites. Tags are usually single words and are typically listed alphabetically, and the importance of a tag is shown with font size or color.

    This is the solution you are looking for, and you should not need to read any further if you DO NOT USE Joomla! Tags from Phil Taylor.

    But I am using a proprietary tagging solutions: Joomla Tags from Phil Taylor (http://www.joomla-tags.com)

    Joomla Tags is a Joomla Extension for adding tags to Joomla Content. Use Joomla Tags to allow content classification by keywords (Tags), can also be used to create virtual categories to add content into, over coming Joomla! single section/category structure

    That’s why I decide to dump Joomulus, and mix both solutions (Joomulus, Joomla tags) to create a new module: Nimbus (Free GPl v3)

    So for resuming

    What’s new

    NEW: version 1.6.0 is only for Joomla! 1.6
    NEW: This version use the Joomla! build in update manager, just browse to the page Extension Manager: Update (at yoursite/administrator/index.php?option=com_installer&view=update) to fetch and update this extension with one click
    NEW: Use Joomla! templating best practices
    NEW: Now use the /media directory
    NEW: Embeded documentation windows to live wiki page for always up to date documentation

    Features

    • Native Joomla! 1.5/1.6 module,
    • Code produced is XHTML 1.0 Strict,
    • Tested in the following browser Firefox, Opera, Chrome, IE 8
    • Approved at Joomla Extension JED,
    • GPL v3.0,
    • Non commercial.

  • I've bought yesterday a licence for Joomla! Tags at a bargain: 23 euro, and it has been activated since.

    I use Joomla Tags to allow content classification by keywords (Tags), it will be used to create virtual categories to add content into, over coming Joomla's single section/category structure.

    You can access it using in top menu (http://www.waltercedric.com/tags.html), this will show you the most popular/clicked/used tags...

    Folksonomy ???

    Folksonomy (also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging) is the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content. In contrast to traditional subject indexing, metadata is generated not only by experts but also by creators and consumers of the content. Usually, freely chosen keywords are used instead of a controlled vocabulary. Folksonomy is a portmanteau of the words folk and taxonomy, hence a Folksonomy is a user generated taxonomy. [WikiPedia]

    Not all 2000 articles are tagged...I can't just tag them all alone. That is why you are now able to tag articles yourself!

    At the end of all articles, there is a small AJAX powered input box, that allow you to enter a set of tag corresponding to the articles. All submitted tags are reviewed and moderated by me of course.

    joomlaTagInstalled-

    I did invest in that plugin since a lot of persons (including me) have now issues to find the right articles in my homepage. Tagging may help to resolve that issue.

    My only regret is that Meta Weblog or Movable XML-RPC API is not ready yet for submitting tags....
