    I’d like to have the tag cloud widget (set to categories) show only the main cats, not the subcats or subsubcats.

    How do I do that?

    I don’t have the skillsets like others on here to create a custom code for you, but if you go to the WordPress plugin repository and search just the word “cloud” you will see a lot of plugins that can provide you with what you are looking for.

    Thanks for the response, but I found no plugin that accomplishes this. I’m most likely in need of code here.

    How do I get the tag cloud widget (set to categories) show only the main cats, not the subcats or subsubcats?

    Thank you.

    Hi

    I have “sort of styled” the tags that appear under my post so they look like tag labels using a CSS3 trick – I still need to remove the “TAGGED WITH” text and them I am done. I noticed the tag cloud widget on my sidebar is truly awful to look at. I wondered if there is a “Genesis way” of making this pretty ; perhaps reusing my CSS classes such as

    
    .entry-tags a{
    	margin-left:20px;
    	padding:0 10px 0 12px;
    	background: #999999;  /*  #0D4571;  WSL Blue note this  was #0089e0; */
    	color: white !important; /* was :#fff; */
    	text-decoration:none;
    	-moz-border-radius-bottomright:4px;
    	-webkit-border-bottom-right-radius:4px;	
    	border-bottom-right-radius:4px;
    	-moz-border-radius-topright:4px;
    	-webkit-border-top-right-radius:4px;	
    	border-top-right-radius:4px;	
    	} 
    

    Personally, I prefer creating simple plugins, I can enable / disable; rather than touching my Fuctions.php – the end result is exactly the same IMHO

    This is close but I would rather reuse the styles I already have created than add similar ones via this plugin
    I would need to hack the authors CSS
    anyway to add my theme colours so a lot of duplication I suspect.

    I have added quite a lot of custom CSS to my theme so i have managed to go beyond the pain barrier ;-)

    This is actually very easy ( even for php newbie like me! )

    I started with http://wpspeak.com/customize-wordpress-tag-cloud-widget/
    Now the blogger’s styles arn’t that bad but in the end I applied my meta-tag styles to tagcloud get the exact look I wanted.

    I couldn’t add both filter criteria in the same function so I just get made the font size the same. If anybody Knows how to do this, or add the post tag totals. please update the comment.
