Cool Tag Cloud


The plugin renders a tag cloud using a professionally designed tag image as a background.

The plugin’s tag cloud is completely responsive and is correctly rendered in all browsers.

The main usage is with the “Cool Tag Cloud” widget but you can also use the shortcode [cool_tag_cloud].

Here’s the list of all available parameters for the shortcode:

  • style=”default|silver|green|red|blue|brown|purple|cyan|lime|black”
  • font_family=”Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif”
  • smallest=”10″
  • largest=”10″
  • align=”left|right”
  • font_weight=”normal|bold”
  • text_transform=”none|uppercase|lowercase|capitalize”
  • number=”20″
  • order_by=”name|count”
  • order=”ASC|DESC|RAND”
  • taxonomy=”post_tag”
  • nofollow=”yes|no”
  • animation=”yes|no”
  • on_single_display=”global|local”
  • exclude=”1,2,3″
  • include=”1,2,3″

  1. Uploaden cool-tag-cloud map naar de/wp-content/plugins / folder.
  2. Activeer de plugin via deplugins menu in WordPress.
  3. Voeg de widget voor de plugin toe op deUiterlijk\Widgets pagina .
  4. Dat is alles.


Waarom is de lettertype grootte beperkt tot 17px?

Want als een groter lettertype is ingesteld, werkt de tag tekst niet passen in de tag in de afbeelding.

Ondersteunt de plugin lokalisatie?

Ja, gebruik alsjeblieft

There is no other plug in (to my knowledge) that can show the tags por a specific post. If you need a tag cloud that shows the tags for every specific posta, this is the one. Thanks for the great work!

This came as a blessing when I had written some custom code to show a custom Taxonomy cloud on sidebar. The options to customize are so cool, and I love the option to either show the taxonomy related to a post on a Single post page or all tags, that makes it so versatile. Thanks so much to the author.

Drop it in as widgets or shortcodes. It will enhance design, usability, and also SEO. Even works great with custom taxonomies. Actually I think this should be a wordpress feature out of the box.
