I’m running the cutting-edge development version of the WordPress blogging platform (known as “trunk” to WordPress geeks). So I’m enjoying some of the features that will appear in the next version of WordPress, 2.3, which will probably be released towards the end of the summer.
The biggest new feature for 2.3 so far is built-in tagging. Actually the categories, link categories, and tags are all part of a new “terms” schema. So I’ve converted my tags from Jerome’s tag plugin, and I’m using the new
wp_tag_cloud function for my tag cloud.
I like to include my categories in my tag cloud, so I wrote a little plugin to do that, using the trunk terms API. It also takes advantage of WordPress’s object cache to reduce MySQL queries. Enjoy.
Please note: unless you’re running trunk (or it’s months after I’ve written this post, and you’re using WordPress 2.3 or newer), this plugin won’t do anything for you.
Where do I download it?

Like this plugin? Is it worth a latte?
This month I have received $31.50 in donations for the free plugins I offer here, which is about $0.01 per download.
