Author Tag Cloud

Description

This plugin will create a tag cloud for a specific author. This will allow a visitor on your site to drill deep down into an author’s specific content.

It uses all of the same parameters as wp_tag_cloud(), but adds an additional one for the author_id. When the author_id is passed an integer of a published author that has tagged his or her posts, a tag cloud will be generated.

It will also create a new permalink structure on your site of

www.yoursite.com/author/author-slug/tag/tag-slug

***Note: that you must be using any custom permalink structure for this plugin to function. Also, custom taxonomies is currently not functioning with this version, please look forward for this in a later version.
