Only display Tags from specific category? (5 posts)

    Is the following possible? It doesn't seem to be working for me. I want to display a tags from posts of a specific category.

    $args = array( 'title' => ' ', 'cat' => '19' );
    do_utcw( $args );

    Any ideas?

    This is not possible with the current version of the plugin. I can add it to the feature requests list if you want.

    I want something similar.

    But instead of "category", I'd probably be using a custom taxonomy. I.e. "media_type" (podcast, video, blog, etc.)

    So perhaps instead of

    'cat' => '19',

    it would be

    'tax_term' => '19'

    Same effect, right? (since terms from all taxonomies go into the same pool and have unique IDs)

    Or perhaps you could even leave it 'cat'=>'19' to keep it "feeling simpler", but have it still work even if the ID provided is for a term that's not a "Category".

    For almost a year I have been searching for something to this effect, i.e. "Intra-category tag cloud" as the person above is suggesting or "Intra-term term cloud" as I'm discussing it.

    Ok, added a feature request for this since there seems to be an interest in it.

    If you could come up with other sensible filters to add to the plugin I'd be happy to discuss them here or in the github issue


    I'll try to get it in to the next version of UTCW

    Just released a beta version if you'd like to try it out and see if it fits your needs:
