Combined Taxonomies Tag Cloud

A widget to make tag clouds out of multiple taxonomies, across multiple post types and control their appearance.

The normal WP Tag Cloud widget only uses one taxonomy at a time, and doesn't handle the default post_tag or category taxonomies being assigned to custom post types.

With this plugin, you can now configure (on a per-widget basis):

  • which taxonomies and post types are to be included,
  • the size of the smallest and largest tags (in different font units),
  • which terms should always be excluded from the cloud,
  • the maximum number of tags to show in the cloud,
  • how to order the tags - alphabetically or by number of tagged posts (ascending or descending), or just randomly,
  • how to treat tags with just one entry - leave alone, remove them or link directly to that post,
  • whether to make links no-follow,
  • what case the tags should appear as,
  • the widget background and tag background/foreground colours,
  • and how long each widget's output should be saved for, if at all.
