Add or edit Taxonomy Term Cloud module


A Term Cloud module displays taxonomy terms in alphabetical order in varying size based on the number of instances a term has been assigned to content on the site. These terms are then linked to views displaying all content associated with that term.


To add a Term Cloud module:

  1. Go to Extensions > Module Manager
  2. Click New in the upper right
  3. Click Taxonomy Term Cloud
  4. For Title in the Module [Edit] view, enter a title for the module


  5. For Show Title, select No or Yes to hide or show the title to the end user
  6. For Enabled, select No or Yes to hide or show the module on the front end of your site
  7. For Position, select the position in which you wish the module to appear. To review your site's module positions, read Module Manager: View module positions on your site.
  8. For Order, select the order in which you wish this module to appear, relative to the other modules set to the same module position
  9. For Access Level, choose Public, Registered, or Special, depending on which type of end user you wish to view the module. If your site does not restrict access to content by requiring individuals to login or you wish all end users to view this module, leave this as Public.
  10. Under Menu Assignment, select which menu items on which you wish the module to appear. To display the module on all pages, leave this as All. If you wish to choose to display it on specific pages only, choose Select Menu Item(s) from the List and select the appropriate menu items. For further instructions on this process, read Module Manager: Publish a module to a given page.

  11. In the right column under Parameters > Module Parameters, click Select next to Term Tree
