Tag cloud properties

Allow for multiple properties to be included in tag clouds. For example, I would like to create a tag cloud of keywords. However, when my entries have multiple keywords, they appear as the one entry. If I could select multiple properties, then I could separate my keywords into individual columns in my excel spreadsheet, select each property when creating a tag cloud, and then all my keywords would be included.

    If you have a column with comma-separated or semi-colon-separated values, you can create a list property augmenting that column and create a tag cloud for the property.

    1. Build >
    2. Edit >
    3. Add Property >
    4. List >
    5. Come up with a property name for display. Ideally, this would be something different from the heading of the column you're augmenting.
    6. Select the list pattern. I'd recommend semi-colon-separated values because comma-separated values can cause problems with CSV files.
    7. Select the column you're augmenting.

    Now, add a tag cloud widget with the new property as its property value.

    You'll see that the tag cloud will be composed of individual item values, not of combined row values.

    Hope this helps!

    See http://viewshare.org/views/ptrourke/sophocles-multivalue-test/ for an example (I'll be deleting that view after you see it).

    Or, ideally, if separating words and phrases by commas to denote them as individual statements - that would probably work for tag clouds
