In an ongoing effort to make this site as cool as possible, Iâ€™ve created my first WordPress plugin called â€œPopular Tags.â€? The purpose of the plugin is to create a finite list of popular tags used and to display said list by weight. Since tags are ongoing, the list needs to be finite or my homepage would grow into a huge ugly list of tags. So what Iâ€™ve done is created a plugin that will only show the x number of popular tags (the tags being wordpress categories under the hood).
I started out with Matt Kingstonâ€™s Weighted Categories code and made some changes (one of which fixes a bug with Mattâ€™s plugin where the last category in your list isnâ€™t displayed properly).
