Popular Tags displayed as a tag cloud

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Using Joomla 3.1.5 and Grid3.

Trying to use the new Popular Tags module and display it as a tag cloud. Learned on Joomla documentation that I should set it to list - and I have but then in the Advanced options, alternative layout, I am supposed to see an option Cloud. Not seeing it. Is this a template driven option that I might not have?

Sample page I am using it on:
www.sedinaz.org/dev2/index.php/policy-and-best-practices

Hi,

I think the cloud layout was brought in in Joomla 3.2.

It is a core module and not affected by the template.

You can try adding the attached file to the folder

/modules/mod_popular/tmpl/

It will then show up in the modules alternative layout field.

Regards,

Rob

(In 3.1.5, that folder is mod_tags_popular)

Much better tag response. I may play with its css a little, but thanks for getting me this far. Sample:
