Tag Cloud Search – Gutenberg Block

This is a feature of the Premium plan. Tag Groups Premium

Block Options

The following options appear in the editor side panel after you selected a block.


Class name used in the tag cloud(s)

The same name must be used in a tag cloud.

This parameter is a class name (selector) that creates the connection between the search field and one or more supported tag clouds. By default it connects to all supported tag clouds on the same page.

Enter the same class name that you use in the tag cloud as “div_class” (or “table_class”). Example:

The same names, separated by spaces.

If you also need other class names in the tag cloud, you simply enter all of them in the tag cloud as “div class”, separated by spaces. Example:

green-tags other-styling searchable-tag-cloud

In the Tag Cloud block you enter only “searchable-tag-cloud” – just the part that makes the connection.


Search also in tag description

(available in version 1.44.0 and later)

If you activate this option, the filter will also show tags where a part of the “tag description” matches the words in the text field.

The description can be added to tags when you create a new tag or click on a tag name to edit its information. It’s not editable via “Quick Edit” in the tag list.

Filtering by description works only if you display the description in the “custom title” (aka tooltip, visible when you hold your mouse pointer over the tag). Use the placeholder {description} in the custom title field of the connected tag cloud.
