This SharePoint web part solution contains an assembly, four web parts files and one aspx page. Please follow the steps in the User Guide to install, deploy, activate and customize the web parts. This is an updated version of the Tag Cloud web parts published at http://www.wsssearch.com/tagging.html
. This version supports category, CSS, different item ordering and related tags. The web parts in this solution include:
1. Tag Cloud web part – displaying tags in weighted format. The popular a tag is, the bigger it’s shown.
2. Tag Browser web part – displaying items associated with a tag. The order of items can be customized.
3. Related Tag Cloud web part – a tag cloud only displaying related tags co-existed with a tag.
4. URL Browser web part – displaying link items sorted on number of saves. This web part is used for social tagging/bookmarking scenario.
With the 1.1 release (thanks to Chris Geier
), we have added the ability for the tag cloud to be recursive. Meaning that it will not only display tags from the current site but also all sub sites in the site collection. This is accomplished by using the GetSubwebsForCurrentUser function. This will allow the tag cloud to return tags in any "subsite" that the user has access to.
IMPORTANT: There's a minor bug in 1.1 for which a fix has been posted at http://www.codeplex.com/CKS/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=21472
. We'll incorporate the fix into 1.2 or perhaps do a quick 1.11 when we get a chance. :-) Tag Cloud 1.2 has been posted at http://www.codeplex.com/CKS/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=10648
