Q: Does the Tagger module work off the search tags in my site?
A: No. The Tagger module does not integrate with the DNN search in any way. The Tagger module is designed to allow site owners and administrators to decide what keywords they would like to Tag content with, and to control the size and composition of the tag clouds on the site. Tag clouds that work off the Search Index are quickly bloated and contain many irrelevent keywords for a particular page, plus they may not integrate well with third party modules if that module does not feed the search index.
Q: Does the Tagger module use the DotNetNuke core Taxonomy tags?
A: Yes. The iFinity Tagger module reads the DNN Core tagging system and integrates the results into the tags collection maintained by the Tagger module itself. Of course, you can choose to just use the Tagger module as a Tag Cloud/Tag List solution for the DotNetNuke core tagging system if you wish. However, the Tagger module provides a richer way to tag content and separate and summarize tags within your site.
Q: Do I create a Portal Tag Cloud control on every page?
A: Normally, you would only create a Portal Tag Cloud control on the pages where there are no Page Tag Clouds. The Page Tag Clouds show tags for that page only, the Portal Tag Clouds show tags for all pages in the site.
Q: Do I have to install separate modules for each page in the site?
A: No, normally you would copy the module instances from one page to the next using the 'Add Existing Module' functionality. Each instance of a Page Tag Cloud uses it's own settings and can be configured separately to all other Page Tag Clouds, even if it was copied in the first place.
Q: I have placed a Tag Cloud on a page with my blog module, but the same tags show up on every blog entry.
A: You must configure the Page Tag Cloud control correctly, in particular the 'Query String Key' value in the Page Tag Cloud settings. If you don't setup the 'Query String Key' value in the Page Tag Cloud settings before you start Tagging, you will quite likely end up with Tags that show up on all Blog entries.
Q: Why do I keep getting a 'Tagger Module is unlicensed' message in my Tag Cloud?
A: The Tagger module is a premium module and you must purchase a licence to remove the message. If you have purchased a licence and you are still getting an unlicensed message, try checking the permissions on the /licence subdirectory and all files within that directory. The asp.net worker process user must have read access to those files in order for the licence file to be read and parsed.
Q: I am writing a new module for my site, and I'd like to use a Tag Cloud. Can I programmatically send Tags to the Tagger module, instead of writing my own tag cloud?
A: Yes you can. You need to use the DNN 'ModuleCommunication' methods to access the Tagger module API. See the forum post title Using the Tagger Module API to set Tags from another DNN Module for more details.
