It was time again to push out some bug fixes fixes – though none of them serious for the majority of users. You will probably notice some changes only on the settings screen.
The new version of the Tag Groups plugin brings you three new shortcodes:
Version 0.22 of the Tag Groups plugin comes with a new feature that was requested already several times: You can now export your settings, including the groups you created. Tags won’t be included, neither their assignment to the groups. The reason is simply that their assignment to the groups is saved with the tags – together with their names etc. Extracting and exporting their group assignment would make things more difficult (but I will keep thinking about this option). If you use export and import in order to clone the groups to another WordPress installation, you might afterwards have to go through the tags and assign them to the correct groups.

You can now add some query parameters to the URL (and button) that will be appended to the resulting permalink of the single post. These parameters help you track redirects in your web statistics. More information can be found in the documentation.
There is a new version of the Tag Groups WordPress Plugin. The new parameter active in combination with collapsible offers you the possibility to start the tag cloud collapsed. The name „active“ may not sound very intuitive (since the whole thing is active all the time) but I decided to keep the name chosen by jQuery UI. So „active“ means just „expanded“.
