Categorized Tag Cloud is a free plugin for WordPress, developed by the Whiletrue.it staff to generate a cloud with the website’s most used tags, in a sidebar widget.
The words inside the cloud are filtered by category, so you can better match your content by removing the unnecessary tag ids.
The following options are customizable:
- category filters
- number of tags shown
- tag colors (fixed or random)
- tag hover color
- smallest and biggest font size

I want to understand how work the
category slug / excluded tags id, comma separated
I only want to show the tags from 1 category. How i can do that?
Warms regards, Pavel
Hi Pavel, to show only a category, in the actual plugin version, you have to enter the id of every other category. We’re thinking about a simpler way to do that in future releases.
Hi, I’m puzzled on how to do this.
The form says it needs the ‘category slug’, yet you say I need to fill in the ID?
Could you make something of a printscreen on how to do this exactly?
Hi Scorp, you enter the category slug on the left and the ids of the tag you don’t want to show on the right; so, when the category page is shown, the tags you entered won’t be displayed.
I use Categorized Tag Cloud widget. Can it be possible that when you go on the text link in cloud, it could change color?
Hi Mirja, I fixed it in the new 1.2 plugin release available today! The hover color is customizable from the widget options form. Thanks for your support!
Hello! Great plugin! Just what I needed! Is there a way to order the tags alphabetically? Thank you!
I second Ashley’s recommendation. Sorting is the only thing this plugin lacks at this time.
I would really love to be able to sort the tags alphabetically.
Yup, this feature was added in the new plugin release.
This looks like just what I need! Two questions: can it filter by tag instead of category? and is there a limit as to how many tags it will display?
Hi, (1) you cannot filter by tag at the moment and (2) you can customize the tag number editing the widget option “How many tags to show”.
Your plugin sounds interesting. Can I see it in action somewhere?
I think this plugin is what I’m looking for, but I’m confused. I want to show a tag cloud of only tags of posts within a specific category. I entered the category slug, but tags of posts in other categories still show up in the tag cloud. Help?
the plugin works as follows: you enter a category and a list of tag ids (comma separated); when the user browses that category (or a post belonging to that category), the tag cloud excludes the selected tags.
Hi WhileTrue, after activating the plugin, I’m getting this error in the widget section:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\xampp\htdocs\Blogs\test\wp-content\plugins\categorized-tag-cloud\categorized-tag-cloud.php on line 47
Hi, the bug is now fixed in th 1.2.5 plugin release. Thanks for sharing!
Waiting patiently for the next available update! Love this plugin!
Is valid for woocommerce? for the tags of products…
Hi Jeremias, they’re currently not supported.
