SimpleTagCanvas

SimpleTagCanvas is a block module based on Graham Breach TagCanvas Javascript Class.

With this module you can display a block with manually specified graphics and text links within the plugin TagCanvas Javascript Class cloud shapes. It is primarily used for manually defined graphics and is not a substitute for the taxonomy controlled drupal module TagCanvas which depends on the module Tagadelic. The ability to create text links is only a option to offer a combination of text and graphics. All links, images and options should be adjusted easily in the backend.
