Forums / Cotonti / Core Labs / Archive / Poll: Split tags plugin into 2 plugins

One for management, one for clouds display

Currently we have a huge tags plugin which is not quite right, because it often needs tweaks for cloud display, which does not affect the other parts.

So I propose splitting this plugin into 2 parts:
[list=1]
  • tags plugin: to add/update/remove tags, display them on pages and search.
  • tag_cloud plugin: to display tag clouds on index, lists and forums.

  • So it will be easier to create custom tag clouds without affecting the basic tags functionality, which will prevent from copy&paste and forks. For example, Ratibor has made a nice version of tag clouds which uses different colors, sizes, avoids JavaScript, etc. If it was just a cloud part, it would be easier to install and maintain.
    May the Source be with you!
