I am using drupal 7.43.
I tried to create a view for the the "top tags" for taxonomy terms.
I couldn't separate each term to count them.

Top tags
howto (1)
dance, howto, lessons (1)
predictions,annual,GOG specials (1)
howto,tips,gifts (1)
geek abuse,10 list (1)
inventions,backstory (1)
geek abuse (1)
uncovering,backstory (1)

I tried all steps given in the video a lot many times but did not get any success.
export of my view:
$view = new view();
$view->name = 'top_tags';
$view->description = '';
$view->tag = 'default';
$view->base_table = 'taxonomy_term_data';
$view->human_name = 'Top tags';
$view->core = 7;
$view->api_version = '3.0';
$view->disabled = FALSE; /* Edit this to true to make a default view disabled initially */

$handler = $view->new_display('default', 'Master', 'default');

D7 Advanced Site Building - Chapter 13, Video #2

I had the same problem. In the video, the tags are all displaying individual (e.g. 'inventions' 'backstory'), with each on a separate line. In my environment, multiple tags items are displaying on a single line, as they were entered (e.g. 'inventions, backstory'). Also, once the field with Count was added on the aggregation, each line had a count of 1, because the individual tag items were not being separated out. I could find no fix to this inconsistency from what was shown on the video. Any info on this issue would be appreciated.
