Each shortcode comes with a variety of parameters that let you show and hide empty tabs or tags, set the smallest and largest font size, open tabs my clicking or hovering with the mouse pointer, you can prepend a character or have your own separator, you can customize the tooltip and add further queries to the link, and much more.
Using these parameters and possibly some custom CSS, your tag cloud can even get rid of all tabs and just show the tags of one group.
Some points need to be highlighted:
- If you select more than one taxonomy then all the terms of the various categories will be mixed into one cloud.
- If you don’t use “post_tag” as your tag group taxonomy then you have to tell the shortcode which taxonomy it has to show. (For example taxonomy=”product_tag”1 if you use WooCommerce product tags.)
- If you need to list tag groups in parameters, use the IDs that you find on the Tag Groups page (where you create and edit groups).
You can choose from some default designs in the Tag Groups Settings, or you create your own theme. See Creating Your Own Theme. That procedure is for advanced users who have access to the file system of the WordPress site.
If you need your tag clouds to match your theme’s colors and design, you might have to consult the creator of your theme. Adjusting the styling is beyond the capacities of this plugin.
The shortcode parameters are listed in the documentation of the premium plugin:
Examples of tag clouds are available here.
- If you copy & paste code, you will have to fix the quotes in your editor. ↩
