I've got 3.5 on two separate WP installs. One is a sandbox and one is production.
On my production system I'm using widgets on pages to create a widget area on a page. I've dropped the tag cloud widget on the widget area. Seems to work ok.
BUT it only shows tags for which more than one post has that tag. If a tag is on only one post, it does not show up in the tag cloud. If it is on two or more posts, it shows up in the tag cloud. On my production systems I have some where in the order of 100-125 tags and about 200 posts.
What I'd like to see is all tags that have one post or more so the tag cloud becomes sort of an index page.
I installed the ultimate tag cloud plugin and (I think) set it up so that a tag shows up if there is at least one post with it. But STILL the tag has to be used on at least two posts before it shows up, despite the configuration in the Ultimate Tag Cloud widget.
So that's two different tag cloud widgets exhibiting the same behavior.
So I went to my sandbox system which is using the same theme (Genesis eleven40). My sandbox system does NOT exhibit this behavior. On the other hand it's only got about 10 posts and three tags.
So my question is, is there any other way that WP could be setting the minimum number of posts to cause the tag to display? And if so, how to I override it?
