Tag Cloud Web Part for SharePoint

with 2 comments

The guys at have got a cool little collection of tagging web parts that allow you to create tag clouds for lists in your site. The basic idea is that you add a tag column to your list, then use the tag cloud web part to display a cloud containing using the tags entered against all the list items. I tried this on a sample blog site and it worked well. Could do with a couple of tweaks in the displaying of items, but otherwise it’s a nice simple tagging option.
