    Hi, how can I create a page that will list tags of a specific tag group that I choose? For example, if I have a tag group "supplements" then I would like to create a page that lists in alphabetical order all the tags in that group. Not a tag cloud. An alphabetical order of tags in that tag group that is automatically update everytime I add a new tag to the group.

    I basically want a seperate page for every tag group which will display in alphabetical order all the tags in that specific tag group.

    It should be possible with the normal shortcode. You add as parameter include= with the id of the required tag group and show_tabs=0 to disable the tabs. If you choose the same value for smallest= and largest= , all tags should display with the same font size. Lastly, you can play with ul_class=something to create your own styling, e.g. displaying them with bullets and so on.

    Alphabetical order is default behavior.

    More information about the parameters is available here: http://www.christoph-amthor.de/software/tag-groups/#Parameters

    Thank you! That worked great :)
    Just one last question as I am new to shortcode and css, how and where do I set the ul_class parameter so that the list is vertical (not horizontal as is the default display) and with regular bullet points? Sorry for the dumb question, but you're a life saver if you answer this!

    and in columns if possible! i.e. alphabetically in columns (so that if I have 300 tags placed vertically the page is not a mile long, but the tags are divided into 6 columns of 50 for example)

    The ul_class parameter goes with the other ones into the shortcode. You use an identifier that is specified in your style sheet. You also have div_class and div_id. If you are not familiar with it, you can find many instructions on css on the web.

    You could try making the columns through the style sheet like:

    .my-great-tags {
           -moz-column-count: 2;
           -moz-column-gap: 10px;
           -webkit-column-count: 2;
           -webkit-column-gap: 10px;
    }

    But I haven't tried it and cannot tell you if it works.
