Tagnetic Poetry

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


The options page allows you to change the Flash movie’s dimensions, change the text color as well as the background.

How wide is your fridge?

The movie will scale itself to fit inside whatever dimensions you decide to give it. If you make it really small, chances are some tags will not fit and will be left out.

And how high?

This sets the height of the display area. Again, if you choose very small dimension, tags will be left out. It probably best to play with these numbers until it looks nice.

How big should the magnets be?

To accommodate smaller size, you can choose to make the tags smaller. Below 70% lesser-used tags will become pretty much unreadable.

Background color

The hex value for the background color you’d like to use. This options has no effect when 'Use transparent mode' is selected.

Use transparent mode

Turn on/off background transparency. Enabling this might cause issues with some (mostly older) browsers. Under Linux, transparency doesn't work in at all due to a known limitation in the Flash player.


Choose whether to show tags only, categories only, or both mixed together. Choosing 'both' can result in 'duplicate tags' if you have categories and tags with the same name. These words will appear twice, with one linking to the tag and the other to the category overview.

wp_tag_cloud parameters

This setting allows you to pass parameters to the wp_tag_cloud function, which is used to fetch the tag cloud. Use caution with this setting. Everything you enter will be passed to the function. Be sure to read the function’s manual. Please also note that these parameters affect tags only. If you’ve chosen to show categories or both, the category 'tags' will not be affected.
