Combined Taxonomies Tag Cloud

Description

The normal WP Tag Cloud widget only uses one taxonomy at a time, and doesn’t handle the default post_tag or category taxonomies being assigned to custom post types.

With this plugin, you can now configure (on a per-widget basis):

  • which taxonomies and post types are to be included,
  • the size of the smallest and largest tags (in different font units),
  • which terms should always be excluded from the cloud,
  • the maximum number of tags to show in the cloud,
  • how to order the tags – alphabetically or by number of tagged posts (ascending or descending), or just randomly,
  • how to treat tags with just one entry – leave alone, remove them or link directly to that post,
  • whether to make links no-follow,
  • what case the tags should appear as,
  • the widget background and tag background/foreground colours,
  • and how long each widget’s output should be saved for, if at all.

Screenshots

  • Enter your (optional) title, and pick which taxonomies and post types will be picked for this cloud.
  • Choose the size range of the tags, which ones should never appear and what order to display them in.
  • More options - how to deal with single count tags, link behaviour and tag appearance, as well as how long to store the resulting HTML.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/combined-taxonomies-tag-cloud/ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Appearance -> Widgets screen to add the Combined Tag Cloud widget to your sidebars, customising each widget individually.
