With DNN Universal Tag Cloud™, creating and customizing content tag clouds that enable your users to navigate to the right collection of information has never been easier, setup and configuration is snap!
A few product reviews have already been sighted in the blogosphere; the response thus far is extremely positive. we look forward to improve on the product and publish an aggressive road map that would ensure multiple releases scheduled through the end of 2009, says Maxiom Technology CEO Antonio Chagoury
A few quotes from the previously mentioned blog sightings reveal that the functionality exposed by the DNN Universal Tag Cloud has been missing from the DotNetNuke ecosystem and is a welcome addition to Maxiom Technology’s collection of modules:
A missing “Web 2.0” element from DotNetNuke is the now-ubiquitous Tag Cloud. Their new Universal Tag Cloud module does most everything you’d expect neatly and easily, says Mamlin of Eguana Solutions.
If you need a tag cloud that has only positive impact on a DNN site, and uses existing technology, this module is definitely the standard one to use, and sets the bar very high. I can already see all kinds of uses for this module on various types of sites, says Will Strohl of RezHub.com.
Until DNN core blog module adds this in this is a good alternative to rolling your own, which can be a pain. The best part is you can make clouds for any modules that tie into the search provider. So if you are using Ventrian’s articles module you could now easily make a tag cloud for all your articles using this module. Lots of possibilities and lots of ways to use it, says Dylan Barber of CodeMyPantsOff.com
