    I wrote a blog post about how to use Cumulus without WP.

    How to repurpose my tag cloud Flash movie

    You can do this on a WP blog, you’d just not be using WP’s tag cloud functions, but a static XML file that’s pretty easy to edit.

    Have Global Site Tags plugin installed. How to retrieve the site-wide blogs’ tags and display in WP-Cumulus. Thanks and Happy New Year.

    I want to install this plugin but am on WordPress 3.04, which has not been tested with the plugin. Do you have an update coming?

    Also, I’m very interested about the custom static XML file; am I correct in understanding that by using the basic structure of Cumulus without WP and inserting it into a page via code (instead of plugin) it can still be used with WP?

    Is there any chance a variable can be added for a background graphic?

    Can you direct me to anywhere in the wordpress community where I could get step by step instructions for how/where to insert snippets and control paths?

    Thanks so much.

    I have a guide about using Cumulus without WP at It’s not a step by step instruction for use with WP, but it should be able to get you started. There are downloadable example files too.

    Oh, and it works flawlessly on 3.0.4 and 3.0.5, I just haven’t updated the readme to reflect that.

    Thanks for the quick reply! Would be so cool if page include/exclude could be used with it as a plugin version.

    A great paid version of the plugin would be a musician’s version: links in the cloud generated from song files and a screened back image of the album cover would show underneath.
