Hello,
Can anyone share how they made a tag cloud?

I am just trying to find the most popular words in a series of rows. Basically, I have 1000 rows with text, and want to make the tag cloud that would show the most popular words in those rows.

Thanks!

This function can power your tag cloud.

Thanks! I feel dumb asking the second part, but I am just curious as to the appropriate query.

How would I take a specific column from say 1000 rows and turn them into a long string?

loop the result, add the value of the column to an array inside the loop and implode the array after the loop.

would I just use implode (separator,array) ?

if the array has one dimension you can but the result method returns an array with objects an the result_array method returns a 2 dimensional array.
Code:
array(array('column'=>1),array('column'=>1));
The loop is to flatten the array.
