Whizzy Tags

Tags are great, but showing them in a list is dull.  Often we want to display tags in a different way - perhaps in a floating cloud which your site visitors can interact with.  Whizzy Tags does just this!.

Demo Support & Documentation


Whizzy Tags and Whizzy Tags for K2 allows you to create a dynamic, floating tag cloud which moves in a circular fashion, speeding up and slowing down as the mouse hovers over the cloud.

This subscription offers you 12 months' access to Whizzy Tags for com_content compatible with Joomla 3, including access to all resources and 30 support credits per month.

Do you support Joomla! 1.5?

No, we don't support Joomla! 1.5 any more.

How does it work?

The Joomla! com_content whizzy tags module has manually specified tags which link to a specified URL.  The user clicks on the tag and they are directed to that URL.  Whizzy Tags for K2 uses K2's in-built tags to create dynamic tag clouds on-the-fly.

How does the cloud get created?

Using some clever mathematics, we set the central point of the cloud, and determine the radius within which the tags may move.  We then create a list of tags, and position them using JavaScript and CSS (no flash here!).  They then move within the permitted radius at a rate determined within the module settings.  The speed of the cloud circling is affected by the mouse cursor moving through the cloud and passing close to a word.

What else can I do?

You can choose the colours that are used to generate the tags, and alter the size of the cloud, and the speed at which the tags move.

How much does it cost?

Whizzy Tags and Whizzy Tags for K2 each cost £10 which gives you access to download all updates and receive support for a period of one year - you can install the modules on as many domains as you like, and we will support you on as many domains as you need.  We operate a sustainable support policy which allows each customer 30 support credits per month during the active term of their subscription - read more about our support policy here.

Following this period you can continue to use the modules (still on as many sites as you like, we don't ever limit that) but if you need updates or support you will need to purchase another subscription.
