Making Tag Cloud look like a list (7 posts)

    Hi, my website is http://www.akayuki.com and I've recently added a cloud tag to the website, using the built-in one that comes with wordpress 2.3.

    the problem is, it looks really messy in my opinion, and i was wondering if there's a way to make it look more clean and tidy, like a list perhaps?

    I read up on the tags at wordpress but I didn't find anything about this.

    Help appreciated!

    Just read over the docs for the wp_tag_cloud template tag.

    <?php wp_tag_cloud('format=list'); ?>

    This will display all tags in a simple list.

    Yes, but being a huge noob to WordPress, I'm not sure in which file I should put:

    <?php wp_tag_cloud('format=list'); ?>

    Is there a file called wp_tag_cloud?

    It all depends on where you want to display the tag cloud. Where would you like it displayed?

    I want it displayed exactly where it is now, in the sidebar.

    And is your sidebar filled with widgets? If so:

    If not, you will be editing the sidebar template (sidebar.php).

    or edit wp-includes/widgets.php
