I am trying to deploy Tag Cloud 1.2, but it seems that there is no WSP file? How would i go about making this source code collection into a wsp file? Do i need some sort of compiler? will GCC work?

I am just trying to deploy this app onto my sharepoint server, but the instructions say to run a command with the WSP file (cab archive?) yet the latest release hasnt come with one.

You can find the wsp here :

This has the recursive fix in it to allow the tag cloud to work across sites and subsites, but personally we found it performed quite badly on large site collections.

Thanks for the help. I decided to roll out the tagging, using 1.0 version, but unfortunately it still doesn't work in picture galleries.

Does either version have support for content in picture galleries? Seems to only work when the site column is added to a "list". adding the site column to a picture gallery gets the tag to appear in the cloud, but on the tag browser page it says "No items associated with this tag." when you click on it.

is it recomended not to use this for picture galleries? is there a work around?
