tag clouds not doing cloud but only a vertical list, in This Just In! Theme (4 posts)

    I'm trying to have a tag cloud in the sidebar of my site, but when I try to default tag cloud widget or any other plug-in tag cloud I try, I'm just getting a vertical list of the tags, no "cloud."
    Is this a theme issue? Is there a way around this to get the tag cloud working? My Theme is This Just In!

    please activate the tag cloud widget in your site so someone can have a look...

    I'm just getting a vertical list of the tags, no "cloud."

    or are you possibly expecting something like: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-cumulus/screenshots/

    Hi Alchymyth,

    Here is the same problem. I tried many of the tag cloud plug-in widgets, and all of them only do vertical lines or "list", and not "flat" or "inline" even though I select that option.

    caused by your theme's style.css;

    the sidebar links are formatted as: display: block;

    #sidebar a {
    	display: block;
    	color: #222;
    	text-decoration: none;
    	padding: 7px;
    	font-size: 1.1em;
    	font-family: Arial, verdana, tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	margin: 0;
    }

    remove that display: block;

    might have side effects on other links in the sidebar.
