Tag Clouds

It's been a bit sad having seen no tag cloud so I added an express version of the tag cloud. You probably have already recognized it! This uses a module called "tagadelic".

https://drupal.org/project/tagadelic

It has many modules on top of it such as cumulus, and I installed it but it did not work... maybe there are too many tags.

Patched Advanced Form Block

I already installed this module to edit tags in View mode several days ago, but it has a problem that the tag editor can only be added to a specific node, and not possible to do that for a general content type. Today I tried a patch provided by a guy in the Drupal site:

https://drupal.org/node/2005086

Applying this patch, it seems to work well now with "Workflow" nodes. We could test this for several days. The tag editor is at the moment placed at the bottom of workflow pages. See for expample:

Microtubules Tools (3D)

Added a new field to Components.

To actualize the Roadmap figure, I added a "Workflow" link to the content type "Components" (this used to be "functions"). An example case is here:

AnalyzeSkeleton

The ImageJ plugin written by Ignacio is used by Volker's "Microtubules Tool (3D)", so this is now linked in the "AnalyzeSkelton" page. Evebtually, this link should be automatically detected by workflow page (or maybe vice versa?) by workflow page and reciprocal links should then be established.

Recaptcha

I installed a module named captcha yesterday but it only blocked 10% or so of spam registrations (about 100 a day and it's increasing). I then upgraded it by adding a module recaptcha:

https://drupal.org/project/recaptcha

Now, after sevral hours, this module already blocked 69 spamming attempts. I show you here the log during last one hour:
