Joes Word Cloud Module

Editor's Note
  • This extension inserts a hidden backlink to the developer.
Script Function:
This extension is a joomla module displaying the words from your Joomla! core articles and displays them in a "cloud" of words displayed in a module. Font-size depends on the frequency of the word throughout your articles.

What makes this word cloud module different is that it takes its words directly from your Joomla! core articles instead of your meta tags which means less work to setup. It has been tested with various languages across the world and 3rd-party templates.

I wanted a module that doesn't need meta tags to be setup for it. I want a module which quickly installs and can work as is. I've added some CSS styling options because I'm just that lazy.

It's free as always, so enjoy!

I've been looking for this module for a long time for my site. All the other tag cloud i found can't handle UTF8 and Hebrew, and this one can !

When I had questions and/or reported a problem, Joe was quick to respond back, with his helpful way, very comprehensive work, and fix it !

Good luck Joe and Thank you very much !
