How To Use The Tag Cloud Element

To start, select where you’d like to place your Tag Cloud. Add the Tag Cloud Element from the Element Dialog.

Configure the Element as required. Choosing the taxonomy is the most important option, as this determines what is displayed. Configure the style of the Tag Cloud on the design tab. Here, you can choose a range of design options to style the Tag Cloud exactly as you want.

If you wish, you can choose to animate the Element on the Extras tab.
