Custom Taxonomies combining tags (4 posts)

    I am using custom taxonomies and have successfully used the widget to display the tags of both taxonomies.
    This results in duplicated words/tags. What I would really like is a way of having both sets of tags combined into one. I don't think this is currently possible due to the restrictions in wordpress.
    Am I right ?

    Actually if the link was a search link rather than a tag link i think that might work

    You mean if you have the same term in multiple taxonomies? Like tag:whatever and category:whatever? Yes that would result in duplicate tags in the resulting cloud since to wordpress they're different terms.

    I could maybe add an option to only show unique names, but as you say, then you have to change how the tags are linked.

    I have to give this some more thaught, if you have any suggestions on a solution I'm hapy to hear them..

    What I mean is - I have two taxonomies using the same ranges of tags. So I have say two custom posts/taxonomies 'product' and 'article'.
    These are both using a tag called 'exercise'.

    I want to be able to have a tag cloud with one tag 'exercise' that shows all products and articles tagged 'exercise'. Exactly as it would work if these were not custom posts.

    At the moment you can only get duplicated tags in the tag cloud.

    I think it would only be possible if there were a change in wordpress to include a 'merged tag template'.

    You can get all items with the word 'exercise' by using the search option, but you don't quite get the same posts selected.
