Tagnetic Poetry

Tagnetic Poetry displays your blog's tags and/or categories as draggable (and clickable) magnetic poetry.


  1. Make sure you're running WordPress version 2.3 or better. It won't work with older versions. Really.
  2. Download the zip file and extract the contents.
  3. Upload the 'tagnetic-poetry' folder to your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/).
  4. Activate the plugin through the 'plugins' page in WP.
  5. See 'Options->Tagnetic Poetry' to adjust things like display size, etc...

In order to actually display the tag cloud, you have three options.

  1. Create a page or post and type [TAGNETICPOETRY] anywhere in the content. This 'tag' will be replaced by the flash movie when viewing the page.
  2. Add the following code anywhere in your theme to display the cloud. <?php tagneticpoetry_insert(); ?> This can be used to add Tagnetic Poetry to your sidebar, although it may not actually be wide enough in many cases to keep the tags readable.
  3. The plugin adds a widget, so you can place it on your sidebar through 'Design'->'Widgets'. The widget uses a separate set of settings, so it's possible to have different background colors, sizes, etc.

If you're using version 1.0 or higher and WordPress 2.5+ you'll also be able to use shortcodes to place the Tag Cloud. This allows you to use different settings for each instance.


[tagneticpoetry args="number=5"] (shows only five tags)
[tagneticpoetry width="400"] (displays a 400 pixels wide tag cloud)
[tagneticpoetry bgcolor="999999"] (sets the background color to medium grey)
