Tags are more than just a visual aid in a community. 
Tags should help to have your content accessible for your users, sorted, identified. 

Filtering by tags is something that requires advanced search. How many user will be willing to use advanced search for regular content ? Probably not many. Not to mention that searches use resources and users sometimes have to wait 20 seconds, 30 seconds for another search.

With this widget you can focus the attention on specific topic, topics that matter and can be adapted to any community.  In my case I have a community with 5 subforums committed to review content. All topics tagged and with prefixes. Now I can show in my main page the positive reviews and the negative reviews, I can also show the last 10 reviews about specific content, I can filter data for customers in the reviews according to my tags:  country, color, services etc. etc.

And the best part is that it can be adapted to any community with interest in focusing on specific content. Imagine you have topics to sell or to buy content. Just add a prefix "buy" and a prefix "sell",  and set up this widget to show topics with the prefix "buy" and another tab topics with the prefix "sell". Imagine you have a forum with questions about technology, well you can sort the questions on the first page by tags, for example, questions about: "laptops" "smartphones" "computers" "tablets"   Just tag the topics and set up the widget.

Perfect widget to focus attention on what you think is more important in your community. Works as expected. You only have to add it to a block anywhere and you can have more than one on screen. But with 6 or 7 tabs it's not actually necessary to add more than one block. It also updates pretty fast, in 2 minutes you have all content updated after changes in topics.

This is an amazing tool,

how you use it, depends on how your subjects are spread in your forum -

the good thing is that it very much works as a teaser especially if you put frequently used tags  in your forum, as the extra tabs. 

first tab is always all the latest topics, and second third fourth etc tabs, are the tags you choose. 

I have set a "suggested"  tag,   with topics that i think are the first topics a new member should participate in, for example , for the first get-to-know post,  or frequent questions - thread, must - read topics etc. 

very thankful that Adriano has added the no-follow option, since from what i have read about google's policy, any group of links/keywords that repeat themselves exactly inside every page,  (as any widget with links that are the same, or tag-clouds)  is not a good thing for seo and pagerank.

The idea is just perfect, but perfomance is not good. When you edit it, and try to add a new tag, it dont work (attached)
If you want to improve this plugin, please PM me for custom/paid work


Response from the author:

That's because you use CLOSED tag system. I will specify in the file that is to be used in OPEN tag system. I didn't that "limitation". Send a PM if you want a refund or exchange the resource for another (same price).
