  • As a blog fills up with lots of posts, the tag cloud becomes relatively static – older posts make up the majority of the content, and so the tag cloud has a strong older-posts bias.

    Is there a way to have wp_tag_cloud restrict to tags used on the last n posts? (say, tag cloud for the last 100, or 500, or 1000, or all posts?)

    That’s close, but sorting by term_id would only get me the most recently created tags, not the tags from the most recent posts.

    I’ll try messing around with a custom query to see what I come up with.

    I agree with Dnorman. I’m particularly in need of this feature, and sorting by term_id won’t help. I saw some older posts of three years ago, requesting the same thing…

    And I haven’t found any plug-in that makes the magic. Some cloud tags here and there, but none of them could take only the tags of recent posts…

    Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.
