    • Andix, that’s a good question. I’m not familiar with Tumblr and its API. There isn’t currently a port available that I’m aware of, but since WP_Cumulus is open source you’re welcome to create your own.

  7. Hi Roy,

    I have got one issue with your tag cloud plugin in IE7 and IE6

    I added the wp-cumulus tag cloud plugin in a jquery based lightbox popup box and it does not seem to work for IE6 and IE7.It shows blank in these respective browsers.right click shows the possible flash settings but no tag cloud seen.

    Rest all browser works fine except IE 7 and IE6.

    Tried all the possible fixes but still no success. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Hi Mohnish. Did you check the page for markup errors using validator.w3.org? In most cases where different browsers show different results there are XML parsing errors on the page.

  8. Hello. I am just delighted with the cloud of tags. I have a question. Why this cloud does not appear Russian text? When I write in English everything is fine, but when the Russian, then what is displayed characters or nothing. And what a font is installed in this cloud? Maybe my computer is not set font that you want to display the Russian text.
    Please answer my question. With impatience I shall wait for a response.

I use the editor WYSIWYG Web Builder 6 for creating Web pages, and I downloaded a cloud of tags with the extension. wbx I downloaded it from http://www.gewuenschtewebsite.de (GOEMO_TagCloud.wbx full name of the file). And on your page with tutorials laid file with the extension. PHP. So my question: can this file to add the Russian language?

    Comment by Sergey — November 20, 2009 @ 2:59 pm

    • Hi Sergey. I have tutorial about adding support for non-Latin languages, but you’d have to contact the author of the wbx file to see if a modifies version of the latest tag cloud movie will work with his project.

    • Vivaldo, I guess the best start is to get the example files on this page.

  16. I’ve not used Flash’s CSS support much, so I wouldn’t be able to help you, but this looks like a god place to start: http://drawlogic.com/2007/06/01/loading-external-css-stylesheets-in-flash9-as3-cs3/.

  18. hi roy!
    if the script gets the color and the style attribute it should also get the rel or the class attribute.
    i have to pass one of this attributs to a javascript (jquery). i tried now something like:
    private function mouseUpHandler( e:MouseEvent ):void {
    var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest( _node[ +”@href” +”@rel”] );
    in the web i found something for as2:
    bt1.onPress = function() {
    http://www.bottero.com.br/images/modelos/ref_108503_lg.png‘, open:true})”);
    but i can´t adapt it for your script.

  19. Roy,

    Looking for any live examples of the plugin – in any script – running images apposed to text. Creating a website to use a similar feature on the home screen but with images. Would love to see an example if possible. Reading through posts i’ve read many times the use of images but no examples.

  20. Thanks for all your knowledge sharing! I am scouring looking for the clever .fla file so I re-engineer. At some point will be posting on http://www.techthinktank.org. Come post in the new year! we’d love to have you.
