fm:TagCloud


This component draws a tagcloud. The tags displayed are generaly supplied by users at upload-time. Usually this component is used to display tags from across your application, for example on a gallery or a (community) homepage, but can also be filtered (for example to only display a specific user or channel's tags).

NOTE: This component is written as a self-closing xml tag.

Example
