Make Categories function like Tags tags TAGS (7 posts)

    How can I make the standard list of categories display as TAGS, with their size dependant on how many blog entries exist in that category?

    Surely a coding genius has worked this one out, NO?!

    Any pointers on where to find this one? The boolean search, "category tag" brings back a TON of results.

    Cheers,

    To be more clear, this effect can be seen when you click on SUPPORT above (on this site)... on the left the "HOT TAGS" are a list of keywords that are popular... I want my categories to output like this! PLEASE!? Any kind souls?

    I think you might want to do a search for "Tag cloud plugin"...

    Why not install the Ultimate Tag Warrior and use actual tags instead of faking it with Categories?

    UTW can add your categories in as tags too, if you want to use categories as tags.

    I am also debating whether to use UTW or just create hundreds of categories (using them as "tags.") My main issue with UTW is that it totally ignores characters like _ and - and so multiword tags like "video_games" display as "video games" in the cloud, which makes it more difficult for visitors to tell which words are part of another tag, etc. Is there any solution to this?
