F2 Tag Cloud Widget


F2 Tag Cloud Widegt is an enhanced tag cloud widget that provides some
additional options compared to the default widget provided with WordPress.
The additional options are:

  • minimum tag text size
  • maximum tag text size
  • maximum tag count
  • tag cloud format
  • tag ordering

These are all options provided by the tag cloud functions within WordPress,
but for some reason are not exposed by their own widget. The full details
of these options are explained in the main WordPress documentation.

In addition, there are additional options now available to control the
typography of tags with greater precision.

  • tag cloud alignment – left, center, right or theme default (default)
  • tag padding – defaults to 0


  • Widget admin screen


  1. Upload the f2-tagcloud folder to the /wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add the ‘F2 Tag Cloud’ widget through the ‘Appearance / Widgets’ menu
