Using the Tag Cloud Block

The Tag Cloud Block displays tags or categories from a Blog, Gallery, Album, or Products Page in a graphic cloud formation. Each tag's text size is based on how often it's used on the connected page, meaning the tags you use most frequently display larger. You can display the tags in alphabetical order, by weight, or by activity.

The Tag Cloud Block gives visitors an eye-catching option to discover the topics you cover. It's common to place this block in a sidebar.

Step 1 - Add the Tag Cloud Block

  1. Open a page or post editor.
  2. Click an Insert Point or the +.
  3. Select Tag Cloud from the menu.
  4. For more detailed steps, visit Adding blocks.

Step 2 - Choose a page

In the Tag Cloud Editor, select the page containing the tags or categories to display in the block. You can select a Blog, Gallery, Album, or Products Page.
