A better tag cloud. Lots of configuration options, a widget and a shortcode to add tag clouds to posts and pages.
I was pretty annoyed with the default tag cloud widget. It does a lot of things wrong, like inconsistent HTML markup and hardcoded font sizes. So I wanted to write my own. Digging through the code I found out that the wordpress
wp_tag_cloud() function is pretty powerful. In fact, it could do almost everyhing I want. So I abandoned my plan to rewrite everything from scratch and added a nice admin interface to my tag cloud widget.
This plugin makes the options for wp_tag_cloud() available to multiple tag cloud widgets and shortcodes. This means that you can easily choose things like custom taxonomies, font sizes, HTML markup and ordering. See the wp_tag_cloud() page for what the normal settings can do.
Additionally, it is possible to sort tags by count and alphabetically at the same time. It is also possible to add a counter to the tags, so that your visitors can see how many posts are associated with each tag. The plugin also adds a sensible CSS class to every tag.
Visit the plugin's home page to leave comments, ask questions, etc.
