Most Popular Tags 3.1.0, now with shortcode support

Version 3.1.0 of the Most Popular Tags plugin has been uploaded to the WordPress plugin directory. This release adds an often-requested feature: the ability to embed a tag cloud in a post or page.

To embed a tag cloud, simply use the shortcode [tagcloud]. You can customise the appearance of the cloud using the following parameters:

smallest
largest
unit
number 
format
separator
orderby
order
exclude
include
link
taxonomy

All of the aforementioned parameters are optional — omit one and it is assigned a default value. For a list of accepted values for each parameters, please refer to the WordPress documentation on wp_tag_cloud(). If you run into any issues, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Examples

Cloud with the top 20 tags

[tagcloud number="20"]

Cloud with the top 20 tags, sorted by count and ordered randomly

[tagcloud number="20" orderby="count" order="RAND"]
