    Oh good lord, please no. That's beyond ugly.

    Display "Tags" for each Forum-Node.


    - Ability to change wording for URL-path from "tags" towards e.g. "explore"
    - Text: "You might also like tags from these topics"

    I'd have to say that, whilst some of these tag cloud screenshots are available on other sites, they're not particularly pretty in themselves and not in keeping with XenForo.

    If there's to be a tag cloud available somewhere in addition to its own page, then I think the sidebar would be a suitable location. This would also be in keeping with XFMG which has one in its sidebar.

    1) Tag-Cloud display / positions
    the "Tag Cloud" is currently extremely hidden, although it would enhance the user-experience enormously.

    Give Admin some diverse "options" in order to display the "Tag Cloud" in areas where he wants to display them (maybe similar to "Page Critera" at Notices).

    So Admin could display the "Tags" either:
    - display "Tags" at the top of the Homepage
    - display "Tags" at the bottom of the Homepage
    - display "Tags" at the Sidebar
    - display "Tags" at specific Forum-Nodes
    - etc.

    2) Dedicated "Tags Page"
    the "Tags" should be more exposed at a dedicated "Tags Page".

    - make an "option" so that the "Tag Cloud" could be shown at a separate "Tags Page". Not necessarily integrated in the "Search Feature" only.
    - "Tags Page" to be reached via clicking onto a Link in the NavBar.

    3) Tags design
    would be great if the "Tag Cloud" could be designed via CSS.

    4) Top Tags

    show "Top Tags" (for example in the Sidebar).

    Example Mockup below:


    Many thanks!

    The best place for tag cloud is in the sidebar.. I hope it will be implemented in the future :)

    Definitely in the sidebar. Tag cloud at the top or bottom of nodes is butt ugly IMHO.

    just needs several "options", so each Admin can decide by himself as to "where" he wants to have the Tags-Cloud positioned.

    Without question, the best place for said tag cloud is in the sidebar. I do agree with @Veer that if not placed on the homepage - sidebar, this will feature will get lost in the sauce .. a hidden feature of sorts. Additionally, It would be great to see a hashtag system put in place as well. My prior forum had it and it was well liked by all. Either way, I love the work being put in to 1.5 and do appreciate all the hard work XF is doing. #CantWait :D

    +1 for the sidebar location.

    It might just be me, but to have it above or below node index page content looks about as pretty as a horse **** on a bowling green.

    Just on the off chance that you aren't kidding, Search Tags | XenForo Community

    And now for a shameless plug:

    My add-on that adds more widgets for bd widget framework, contains a tag cloud widget which can be seen on www.xenmods.com.

    Totally agree. It's good to at least have the option. :)

    There's a huge window for more tagging functionality to be added to XenForo. The average user isn't going to click on Search -> More -> Tags just to find a tag cloud. I'm putting this addon, but it really only scratches the surface.

    If I could tag Attachments, I could think of really incredible addons that could be added to XenForo. But as always, I lack the programming skill to write addons for XenForo.
