Head in the clouds? Tag yourself.

I have been looking for a ‘simple’ tag cloud generator that will parse content from MySQL for ages and couldn’t find one. So I adapted – and heavily modified (reduced) – and CSS’d – the best one that I could find. It turned out nice and simple.

  .size9 {	color: #000;	font-size: 26px;	 }
  .size8 { 	color: #111;	font-size: 24px;	 }
  .size7 {	color: #222;	font-size: 22px;	 }
  .size6 {	color: #333;	font-size: 20px;	}
  .size5 {	color: #444;	font-size: 18px;	}
  .size4 {	color: #555;	font-size: 16px;	  }
  .size3 {	color: #666;	font-size: 14px;	  }
  .size2 {	color: #777;	font-size: 12px;	  }
  .size1 {	color: #888;	font-size: 8px;	  }
  .size0 {	color: #999;	font-size: 6px;	  }

 $maximum) $maximum = $count;

//create array
    $elements[] = array('word' => $word, 'count' => $count);

}
//random
//shuffle($elements);
//alphabetical
sort($elements);

foreach ($elements as $e){ // start looping through the tags

    // determine the popularity of this term as a percentage
    $percent = floor(($e['count'] / $maximum) * 100);

    // determine the class for this term based on the percentage
	if 	   ($percent >= 99)		$class = 9;
	elseif ($percent >= 70)		$class = 8;
	elseif ($percent >= 60)		$class = 7;
	elseif ($percent >= 50)		$class = 6;
	elseif ($percent >= 40)		$class = 5;
	elseif ($percent >= 30)		$class = 4;
	elseif ($percent >= 20)		$class = 3;
	elseif ($percent >= 10)		$class = 2;
	elseif ($percent >= 5)		$class = 1;
	else						$class = 0;

    // output this term
    //with links...
    //echo "" . $k['term'] . "\n ";
  //without links.../
    echo "" . $e['word'] . "\n ";

}
// for debugging....
//echo "
"; //echo "
";
//print_r($elements);
//echo "
