    Excellent Plugin!!!!! Looks great and works exactly how it's supposed to, Great Work!!!

    I was going to forego this plugin because it only displayed tags from "Posts". I don't use posts on my site!! Anyway, recently I installed a plugin called "Page Tagger" (available here http://www.hiddentao.com/code/wordpress-page-tagger-plugin/)which enables the use of this awesome plugin and will display your tags for "Pages"!!!

    Reubz- How did you get the page tags to show up in the Cloud? I can't seem to add them in!

    Kia Ora,

    1. Activate plugin "wordpress-page-tagger",
    2. Select a Page that you want to add tags to and edit it,
    3. Enable your screen option: "Tags",
    4. On the "Page Editor" screen, go to you "Tags" screen option (Right hand side down the bottom), and add your tags and then SAVE your changes,
    5. go to: Widgets,
    6. add the "cumulus" widget to a widget area,
    7. check out your site,
    8. All good!!

    Hope this helps you!!

    I hate to bother you again, but I don't seem to have a screen option "tags" to enable... maybe my theme is overriding it? Or maybe I just don't see exactly where it is.... I really appreciate your help! Also, I've read a few reviews about this plugin getting sites hacked. Have you had any issues with it?

    You can enable your screen options by clicking on the "Screen Options" tab in the top right hand corner of your WP install - It's right next to the "Help" tab.

    Thanks again! I think my theme IS overriding it. "Tags" was already enabled. I was looking for it somewhere else. :-)

    Hey what's up? I'm using the Cumulus plugin along with Page Tagger on http://www.chulavistapediatricdentist.com
    I'm having a problem with the content being duplicate... I know this is not good for SEO and also the /tag pages reached after clicking on a cloud tag don't have the proper formatting, which I don't know how to add..... Anyone know of a solution? Thanks

    Certainly deal with your duplicate content first.
    Then check your template settings to customise the formatting on the page where the "tag" links are displayed.
    Most templates generate a "virtual" page where the content is updated and then displayed depending on what's selected.

    WP-Cumulus is a front-end for WordPress's built-in tag cloud. Are you getting the same thing when you use the default (html) tag cloud widget that comes with WordPress?

    I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but tag pages (basically an archive of the posts/page with that tag) will usually show the intro of those posts. As will date-based archives, search result pages, etc. The same content may turn up on dozens of pages (urls) in your site. I don't think Google considers this duplicate content.

    If you look hit one of the links in the home page tag cloud, for example the "Tooth Brushing" tag, brings you http://chulavistapediatricdentist.com/tag/tooth-brushing and that page is not formatted with a sidebar like http://chulavistapediatricdentist.com/pediatric-dentistry/tooth-brushing

    So I guess my question is... does anyone know how I could format all those tag pages throught Catalyst/Dynamik theme? or does anyone know how to customize urls of tags in cumulus cloud? I am a beginning web developer and I have no clue how to go about either. Thank you for all your suggestions and help.

    I do see a sidebar on the tag page, but with different widgets. Your theme probably uses different templates (tag.php, archive.php, etc, see http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy). I think you'll find that there are separate sidebars defined for these templates. You could simply put the same widgets in all of them.

    There's no way to easily change the links in WP-Cumulus, because those are the standard tag urls that WordPress provides. Cumulus is just eye-candy.
