Plone portlet for vaporisation tagcloud

The collective.vaporisation addons for Plone give to the user a tag cloud portlet.

With some CSS rules you can customize colors

An advanced feature is the "join navigation" that allows user to make a search related and sequential. During the search the view of the portlet is different. One first part of it shows only the keywords into the contents that are result of the search. A second one show the selected tags allowing user to remove some of them from the search.


When you add this kind of portlet, named "Tagcloud portlet", you're in front of an edit form with many fields.

We see in detail what they do:

Name to display
The name of the tag cloud. For display purposes.
Number of different sizes
This number will determine the biggest size.
Number of keywords to display
This number indicate the max number of keywords shown. The value 0 (zero) show all the keywords.
Cloud reload timeout
Time in minutes after which the cloud should be reloaded. This time isn't the only parameter that force the reload of cloud. Put this value to "0" for disabling caching (don't do this on production).
Start path
Only the objects under this directory will be taken in consideration. If empty (default), the portlet will search in all the site.
Indexes to use
In this field you can select the indexes to use. We can use all the KeywordIndex defined into your site. The default one is "Subject" index of Plone.
Type of contents
We can filter the objects by type. Only the objects of the selected types will be used to search the keywords.
Activate joint navigation
With this options active the portlet change his view to show only the related keywords. This will be seen during the functionality of search of contents with some keywords.
Use only the keywords of this list
A whitelist for a manual choise of the keywords to show. Remove from keywords list: A blacklist for remove some keywords from the shown.
Mode to use
Select a mode of use among those diponibile. Now we have only one mode of use. Other one can be implementated by external package through an adapter.

If actived, the keywords will be sorted alphabetically.
