    I am building and IRA/Retirement site.

    I have a blog and private content. For both the blog and premium content,
    1-post is 1-month. The amount of material varies by month.

    I am messing with Content Aware Sidebars. When I have it display the tags in
    “this sidebar” it displays ALL THE TAGS — I only want the tags relevant to
    this post/month.

    Will this plugin do what I am looking for?

    I saw a mention of 3D/multi-level tag clouds: SOOOOO, choose the month
    “January 2019” from a mess of tags; under that, the tags for the month of
    “January 2019”.

    HAS ANYONE got this thing to work with Content Aware Sidebars. This is a new
    plugin. It would be cool if it would play nicely with some other sidebar
    plugins.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    I don’t know Content Aware Sidebars.

    The Tag Groups plugin will not be able to automatically group tags by month. You always have to sort them manually into groups.

    I just assumed that. When I use the widget in Content Aware Sidebars, I GET-ALL-TAGS. What I want to do, is build a tag-cloud specific to this page. I think I will
    need to enter the tags manually. How? I have not figured out how to do this.

    I like the idea about the text-widget and shortcode. If that works, then I should
    be able to use Content Aware Sidebars to display the tag-cloud via the text-widget.
    Soooo, where do I enter the tags/words for the tag-cloud?? OH! I am using the
    free version. The ver number is 0.45

    Please follow these steps: https://documentation.chattymango.com/documentation/tag-groups/getting-started-tag-groups/first-steps-tag-groups/

    Afterwards your tags (some or all) are sorted into groups.

    Then you enter a shortcode into a text widget. Here are some options: https://documentation.chattymango.com/documentation/tag-groups/tag-clouds-and-groups-info/shortcodes/

    To get started, you could try

    [tag_groups_cloud]

    That should display a tag cloud, where the tags are sorted under groups in tabs. For an example see the screenshots in the plugin description.
