Random Tags Cloud Widget v1.2

WordPress Yorum Ekle

Random Tags Cloud displays your tags by selecting randomly. Of course, you can customize other tag cloud's settings. It allows you to display your site's tags on your sidebar. It works just like a regular tags cloud, but you can customize it. If you set, it gets your tags by selecting randomly. Of course, you can set other settings; font sizes, number of tags to display, how to order etc.
Now you can add a 'Show All Tags' link to your tags archive page.

Installation

  1. Make sure you are running WordPress version 2.3 or better. It won't work with older versions.
  2. Download the zip file and extract the contents.
  3. Upload the 'random-tag-cloud' folder or 'random-tag-cloud.php' to your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/).
  4. Activate the plugin through the 'plugins' page in WP.
  5. See 'Design'->'Widgets' to place it on your sidebar. Set the settings

If you don't use 'Widgets', add following codes in your 'sidebar.php' to place 'Random Tags Cloud' on your sidebar. Change the parameters as you want:

  1. <li><h2>Tags Cloud</h2>
  2.   <ul>
  3.     <?php
  4.        $parameters = array(
  5.           'smallest' => 8,
  6.           'largest' => 22,
  7.           'unit' => 'pt',
  8.           'number' => 45,
  9.           'format' => 'flat',
  10.           'rsec' => 1, //To select randomly = 1 else = 0
  11.           'orderby' => 'name',
  12.           'order' => 'ASC',
  13.           'exclude' =>'',
  14.           'include' =>'',
  15.           'tagspage_id' => 2 //Tags archive page ID = 2
  16.     );                        // 0 = no show link
  17.       yg_tag_cloud( $parameters );
  18.     ?>
  19.   </ul>
  20. </li>

    how do you write a tags archive page? i'm not good at this but i created a tags archive page anyway so it can generate a page id. it's currently blank.

    how exactly do i insert the code above into the css file?

    thanks for making this plugin!

  27. Yakup Gövler dedi ki:

    @muriel,
    Please, read this page to create a tags archive page.
    Open theme editor in your control panel. Select style.css and write at the end of it or anywhere:
    .alltags_link {
    color: red;
    font-size:16px;
    /*and what you want */
    }
    You don't have to write style code. This is optional. If you customize this link, you can insert.
    Thanks and sorry for my bad English.

    Nice widget, but where can i find the id to show all my tags?

  31. Yakup Gövler dedi ki:

    You must create a tag cloud archive page. Read here, please.

  32. Evil Esquire dedi ki:

    Like your widget. Thanks! Are you going to update it? Have a few suggestions for next version.
    1) allow multiple instances of the widget in the sidebar
    2) include the 'taxonomy' parameter to allow tags, categories and links to be mixed.
    3) include a parameter to expand line-height so the tags don't appear crushed together-- via css perhaps?

    If you're not going to update I will try myself. Let me know... and thanks again.

    Can you please correct a problem with the plugin?
    If the font size is given in "em" units then your plugin only uses integer sizes, 1em or 0em, but not able to handle 0.9 em or 1.1 em. This is a bug. Thank you for fixing it!

    Thanks for a great plugin!
    I have a problem though - some of the tags disappear from the tag cloud after a while (in both IE and Firefox). Do you know why, or how to fix this?
    Sue

  37. Yakup Gövler dedi ki:

    @Sue, if you check "Select Tags Randomly" checkbox, the tags will be displayed randomly. In your website, you checked this. Please, unchecked this option and retry.

  38. Sue dedi ki:

    Hi Yakup
    thanks for the speedy reply.
    When I check the Widget options, the 'select tags randomly' box is not checked.

    Is there some way I can go directly to the code (Plugin Editor) and change it?
    Thanks
    Sue

  39. Sue dedi ki:

    I just looked at the code. Here's what it says:

    $rsec=1
    'checked'="checked"

    I changed "checked" to "unchecked" and it is working now.
    Thanks for your help...

    Hi again Yakup
    I'm still having problems with the random tag cloud.
    In IE it works fine, but in both Firefox and Safari, some of the tags are missing.
    I am not using the widget, so in the Sidebar.php file I changed rsec to 0.
    Please help! Can you see what I'm doing wrong?
    Many thanks
    Sue

  42. Yakup Gövler dedi ki:

    @sue, please write your codes in your sidebar.php.
    Please, try the following $parameters:

    1. <li><h2>Tags Cloud</h2>
    2.   <ul>
    3.     <?php
    4.        $parameters = array(
    5.           'smallest' => 8,
    6.           'largest' => 22,
    7.           'unit' => 'pt',
    8.           'number' => 45,
    9.           'format' => 'flat',
    10.           'rsec' => 0,
    11.           'orderby' => 'name',
    12.           'order' => 'ASC',
    13.           'exclude' =>'',
    14.           'include' =>'');            yg_tag_cloud( $parameters );

    16.   </ul>
    17. </li>
  43. Sue dedi ki:

    Yakup, the code is not copying properly. I know there are directions for handling code in the forum here but I don't read the language! Can you email me and I'll send it?
    Thanks, Sue
