Tag Groups Plugin: Link Targets and Tag Counts

Two small features have been added to the plugin:

  1. You can set the link target with “link_target“, i.e. determine where the page with the posts for that tag will open. To open them in a new window, you would set it to “_blank”.
  2. You can suppress the number of tags in the tooltip (the “title” attribute).

Different Styling for Assigned Tags

The parameter tags_post_id has been around now for a while, helping you to display only tags that are assigned to a particular post or page (depending on the value, where 0 means the current item).

After a long, long time, tag groups is now localized to a new language – Spanish. Many thanks to Andrew Kurtis!

My Story of Mycitizen.net


For many years I was doing mainly non-profit project management – which, by the way, is very different from the same activity in a corporate settings – including consolidation of the organization, research, grant writing, event management, capacity building, microfinance and some IT work for our websites. Faced with the challenge to find innovative solutions to the quite complex situation in and around Burma (Myanmar), I decided to extend my activities within the Burma Center in 2012 to a new field.

Multiple Tag Clouds

Wikipedia: Cloud in Nepal

The new version 0.11 is not actually a big step. It just introduces something very simple: The possibility to have more than one tag cloud on the same post or page.

Tabbed Tag Clouds for Posts


While I myself use tag clouds on WordPress installations mainly in the sidebar, several users have requested advice on how to use the Tag Groups plugin to display a tag cloud on posts (or pages) that would filter the tags or groups according to the tags of that particular post.
