Whilst looking at the e107 related news plugin it occured to me that this would be an easy addition to the tagcloud plugin too. The tagcloud plugin already links together news items via the tagging process so this seems an ideal way to link up posts that might interest readers.
At the time of writing it is up and running here.
I also fixed a couple of minor bugs in the tagcloud plugin and am taking a look at a problem that has been reported a couple of times where the auto generation of tags using Yahoo term extraction fails.
Once this is sorted I will push out a new version with these little tweaks!
Tagclouds in e107 0.8
Having loaded up the CVS version of e107 0.8 I was interested to investigate the new tagwords plugin. On first look it seems like a welcome addition but slightly more limited than my own version. It is still early days and maybe it will be improved but it is likely there may still be a place for my own version – we’ll see!
