[resolved] having duplicate tags ignored in only one query_post (2 posts)

    Hi I have a question regarding tags in query_post.

    My goal is to have all tags used in a query echoed but I don't want the same tag echoed more the once.

    I was thinking of the duplicate post technique but it needs two queries.

    It could have to do with the way I am querying as well... maybe needs arrays and variables... it's getting a touch out of my wp understanding...

    I am sure there's a way to kill a duplicate entry so can somebody help me out or give me a lead to a similar problem that was resolved?

    Thanks heaps,

    <ul id="filter">
    <?php query_posts("posts_per_page=-1&amp;cat=5");?>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    global $post;
    if ( has_tag() ) { ?>
    <li><a href="#"><?php
    $posttags = get_the_tags();
    if ($posttags) {
    foreach($posttags as $tag) {
    echo $tag->name . '';
    <?php } else {
    }?><?php endwhile; ?><?php endif; ?>

    ok I managed to "hack" my site into getting this to work.. well It's pretty easy, I used this:

    2.8-bleedingedge WP

    <?php wp_tag_cloud('smallest=12&largest=12&format=list&taxonomy=post_tag'); ?>
    It does what wanted it to do by I'm using an "unstable" version of WP and the incredible taxonomy parameter for tag clouds!

    Good Thinking WP dev team!
