Significant Tags

Adds parameters to WordPress' tagcloud for filtering out insignificant tags.

Significant Tags adds two possible arguments to WordPress' tagcloud function (wp_tag_cloud) that give you more control over what tags should be shown. In particular, this plugin will cut the most rarely and/or the most often occurring tags, the specific numbers depending on the parameter chosen.

When calling wp_tag_cloud, add key drop_bottom (and/or drop_top) with one of the following values:

  • 'N' with N an integer. Will drop the tags with the N smallest (largest) post counts.
  • 'Nc' with N an integer. Will drop tags with less (more) than N posts.
  • 'N%' with N an integer. Will drop tags with the N percent smallest (largest) post counts.
  • 'Xs' with X a float. Will drop tags with post count more than X times standard deviation below (above) the average of all counts.
