This is the only mandatory parameter. Enter here the same class name (selector) that you use in the tag cloud as “div_class” (or “table_class”). Example:

[tag_groups_cloud_search tag_cloud_class="searchable-tag-cloud"]
[tag_groups_cloud div_class="searchable-tag-cloud"]

This class name creates the connection between the search field and one or more tag clouds.

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:

[tag_groups_cloud_search tag_cloud_class="searchable-tag-cloud"]
[tag_groups_cloud div_class="green-tags other-styling searchable-tag-cloud"]


An optional label, displayed above or left of the input field.
