Are you looking for a way to create a tag cloud? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to create a tag cloud and define font size for the smallest to largest links in WordPress.
All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s index.php file or in a site-specific plugin:
<?php wp_tag_cloud('smallest=8&largest=36&'); ?>
Or, alternatively you could use this code. Add this snippet to theme template file. It just returns simple links, which can be styled with CSS. Wrap the function in
<div> tags or paragraph tags for the desired styling.
<?php wp_tag_cloud(array( 'smallest' => 10, // size of least used tag 'largest' => 18, // size of most used tag 'unit' => 'px', // unit for sizing 'orderby' => 'name', // alphabetical 'order' => 'ASC', // starting at A 'exclude' => 6 // ID of tag to exclude from list )); ?>
