3D Tag Cloud

3D Tag Cloud allows you to display your site’s tags using jquery that rotates the tags in 3D.

It works just like a regular tags cloud, but is more visually exciting. Clicking the tags will take you to the appropriate page. Might not work with less than IE9.

New Configuration options been added to the admin panel. Now the site admin can configure the following options.

  1. Title of the Tag Cloud.
  2. Number of tags to be displayed.
  3. Height and Width of the widget.
  4. Background Color.
  5. Text Color.
  6. Font.
  7. Font maximum size.
  8. Font minimum size.

    Dear Vinoj –

    I was very disappointed that you have ignored my question.
    My question was definitely no joke, and I know that there are some other users, seeking for an answer throughout the net.
    I hoped you may have a good tip to manage this problem.
    If not, or if too complicated, I’d really appreciate a short answer to my question.
    With kind regards –

    Hello –
    I’ve found your Tag Cloud Widget in the WP-directory and like it very much.
    But I have a problem: As I only have 3 Magazine-Pages (and no single Posts), I don’t need the tags to be links.
    To me it would be great when only the words (without a link-function) will be shown.
    I would like to use a Tag cloud to add some visual interest, highlight some keywords and support my SEO (as somebody told me, a tag cloud can be helpful for SEO).
    Is there a way to eliminate the link functionality ???

    I would be thankful for your help and an answer.
    With kind regards

      Hi Reca,
      The tag purpose is to enable the user to see the related content for that tags. So the tags should have a link. Eliminating the links from the tags can be done by altering the code, but still when you update the plugin, your code will be gone.
      Thanks, Vinoj

    Hi Vinoj,

    Thank you so much for a next generation word cloud. The plugin is awesome. Would it be possible to set the font weight in the future versions? That would be cool. Thank you for your great plugin.

    Thank you for all your hard work with this plugin; I think it is great. That being said, I am having a couple of issues with version 3.0:

    1. The tag cloug includes deleted tags in the presentation. Is there any way they could be excluded?

    2. Clicking on a tag in the tag clouds takes users to a blank page instead of showing a list of posts with that tag.

    3. I feel the need for a way to *exclude* certain tags from the 3d tag cloud selection pool, like private or NSFW flagged items. Is there a method to do this?

    My site is http://www.renaissancemusings.com. Please feel free to inspect it. I appreciate your help!

      Hi Abdullah,

      Thanks for your comment.

      1. This need to be still developed. I will look into this.
      2. This issue is sorted now on latest Version 3.2 onwards
      3. This also a good option to be included into this plugin. I will look into this.

      Thanks, Vinoj

        Thanks so much for your help. The cloud is working again, but it is no longer cycling through different tags any more, and always has the most common/top rated tags. That’s not realistic. Also, some of the tags are very small in font. Also, it doesn’t move around in response to swiping on smartphones/tablets. Great work so far! With more determined tag placement (cognitive, semantic, co-occuring tags on single posts) nearness placement, instead of fixed points on a sphere and it will be even better at conveying comprehension…
