Tag Cloud has HTML Line Breaks after Each Tag? (8 posts)

    I am calling my tag cloud on a wordpress page (literally a page, edited in the dashboard) with the code:

    which should show all tags separated only by whitespace, but instead I am getting all tags separated by an html BR tag. How can I get rid of the line breaks?

    Is no one else having this problem?

    I'm also having this problem. Using WP2.3 and the default tag call.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  4. wp_tag_cloud doesn't add BR tags. But..

    (literally a page, edited in the dashboard)

    You're using something like RunPHP aren't you? Well, don't do that. Page content is automatically reformatted to be HTML friendly. While wp_tag_cloud only outputs newlines, WordPress will convert those to BR's when they occur in Post or Page content.

    Instead of using RunPHP and other hacks, create a Page Template and put your PHP code there. Then use that Page Template for your Page instead.

    Indeed, I'm using exec-php. That sucks since I don't really want to create 200 different if/then statements for all the php I use in posts and pages.

    Does anyone know of a "new" tag plugin that isn't going to screw things around?

    (I never had any hassles with UTW in the past. It'll be hard to go back.)

    Sorry Otto,

    I misunderstood you. (Damn text-based communication!)

    One can still run php plugins but one cannot run <?php wp_tag_cloud(''); ?> within the page.

    One more page template isn't too much of a problem though :)

    Thanks Otto!

    I had the same problem. I wanted to continue to use runPHP so wrote a very simple plugin that filters out the \n's created by wp_tag_cloud and replaces them with spaces. The

    You can grab the plugin here:

    I would suggest that maybe for a future version of WordPress, the main code could use a space instead of a /n for separating the tags.

    Anyone with a solution to this issue? The 'wordpress-tag-cloud-formatting' plugin doesn't work on WP 2.6. The wp_tag_cloud() function should take the parameter format=flat, but in IE there are still line breaks after each tag.
