WP Cumulus different clouds in different pages (10 posts)

    Hi guys!

    I have the tag cloud as a widget at the sidebar. And it shows at all pages.

    However, there is one page that I wish to use the cloud with a different set of tags/categories.

    How can I do this? Awaiting for your response. Thanks.

    With the current version, this is not possible. I'm looking into using custom taxonomies (which can be used as a separate set of tags), and the next version will support multiple separate instances of the widget, but even then your theme would need to have a different sidebar on that one page.

    Different sidebar? Hmmm, that can work I think.

    I was thinking earlier that I would create a page template with a different sidebar (not widget) so that means I would be using your template tags and the parameters to exclude and include certain categories.

    So then I edit that special page and use the above template page and it should do it, right?

    I hope you get what I'm trying to say. =)

    Hey roytanck, how do we put the parameters in wp-cumulus to exclude some categories and tags?

    is it as below:

    <?php wp_cumulus_insert('exclude=9,11,7'); ?>

    Awaiting your response bro. =D

    The insert function doesn't support parameters. The shortcode does (see: http://www.roytanck.com/2009/03/11/how-to-use-wp-cumulus-shortcodes/), which can be used in a text widget with a small hack in the theme (see: http://hackadelic.com/the-right-way-to-shortcodize-wordpress-widgets).

    Okay. I read this information at http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_tag_cloud.

    I'm not sure now that is it possible to do an include or exclude categories or tags using WP-Cumulus.

    hmmm...is there no way? I'm kinda going nuts...haha..

    Okay. I'm thinking like this.

    We can use <?php wp_cumulus_insert(); ?>, right?

    Can I show just the TAGS only and if I can, how do I code it into the above?

    Is it:

    <?php wp_cumulus_insert('mode=tags'); ?>

    Greetings--The way my site is set up, I have pages instead of posts.
    Any way to add pages to the elements that appear in the cumulus widget, along with posts and categories?
    Thanks !

    @kevmel: I'm afraid not.
