The TopCloud module is customizable in both appearance and content. A range of graphic background and surrounds is integral to the module.
The colours of the links which make up the content of the cloud are also customizable.
Landing page is selectable.
Clouds may be numerically reduced for large clouds.
Support for characters outside the site localisation - useful for multilingual content.
A choice of fonts and text sizes/weights are available.
Localization is available for English, Russian, French and German languages.
This module is not flash based.
No need to register.
Working perfectly with my template.
I would especially like to mention the feature "Adding an item multiple times will increase its font-size in the cloud." Very good!
Two reasons I do not give you full score:
apparently it does not count the keywords automatically and it adds a lot of crap words (like "contact", Names and ROOT (where did it get that from??)
It does not use "&" for terms like "Spa & Wellness", displaying such terms as "spa wellness" as 2 strings.
Did not use the styling, cause it looked perfect from out of the Box!
I wanted to be able to use phrases as "single keywords" in the cloud in such a manner that phrase would appear as a single link in cloud instead of being multiple separate words. I also wanted this extension to hide keywords which are not used on public articles as long as user has not logged in (or doesn't have privileges to see those articles).
I contacted the owner of the extension and I got feedback very fast. After changing few emails the owner had included extended functionality to fulfill my needs for the extension in new version of the extension (branch? no knowledge will the functionality be in public version of the extension). After the modifications were added the extensions was exactly what I wanted from it.
The customer support was very swift and professional, and went beyond my expectations. I recommend this extension to anyone.
As you say this is a configurable product.
It puzzles me that you would value items which gave you no choices. Why would you want something that only represents someone elses priorities.
Having said that the configuration options are fairly straight forward. As you youself say very configurable.
Excellent service, and now the module works perfectly in my website.
However, I've decided to test it out and wouldn't change it for any other module.
I use the extension for blog website which has hundreds of articles. The installation of module went smooth, no problems, easy to install and easy to use.
+ simple to install
+ easy to use
- I haven't found any flaws connected to functionality so far. Few HTML tidy warnings, but that is last thing some developers look at, all is fixable as long as you have some HTML and php knowledge ;P
Thanks to developer :)
