This plugin adds a new format to the `wp_tag_cloud` function, allowing for image based -- Wordle-like -- tag clouds.
This plugin allows the creation of tag clouds based on GIF images.
Each word in the taglist is converted to an image. The images may vary in size, orientation and color. The images are then positioned in a condense way, resulting in Wordle-like tag-clouds.
To use the image-style tag-clouds set the format parameter of
