Skin Tags


I wanted to make my tag cloud (new with WP 2.3) look more like the one generated by, with a flush margin on both the left and the right. But when I tried to do it, it sucked because the internal spaces in the tags had been replaced by non-breaking space characters. Argh! This plugin, simple as it is, allows a tag to break across the column.

More importantly, it serves as a “Hello, Taggy!”-type example for how to build a filter for the wp_tag_cloud hook for your own future exploration.


Unzip in the wp-contents/plugins directory and activate in your Admin plugins panel. You’re ready to go. There are no options. The code is so simple, you can merely play with the code to change the output.
