Term/Tag Cloud Search


EPS Term/Tag Cloud Search Creates a widget that will present a “Tag Cloud” of terms, and allow you to pick one or more terms to search by – Giving you the opportunity to search for all posts that are tagged “Red” and “Blue”.


  • Supports any publicly available post type
  • Supports any publicly available taxonomy

Created by Shawn Wernig Eggplant Studios

This release is compatible with all WordPress versions since 3.0.1 (Tested. Plugin may not work as intended for older versions of WordPress).

This plugin is English only; though it is somewhat language independent.


  • An example of how the tag cloud might look - it is heavily dependent on your theme's CSS!


  1. Upload the eps-term-tag-cloud-search folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add the new Term/Tag Cloud Search widget to a sidebar.
  4. Select the Taxonomy that you would like to search in.
  5. Save.
  6. Try it out!


Can two instances of Term/Tag Cloud Search interact with each other?

No, sorry. One widget, one search.

Term/Tag Cloud Search doesn’t look right

It’s likely your Theme’s styles are interefering. You might have to do some custom CSS to get it to display perfectly on your site.

No, sorry. One widget, one search.
