The WikiCategoryTagCloud extension allows to add tag clouds based on categories to a page.


These in text parameters from the original extension still work the same:

Only display a tag for a category, if the category contains at least min_count articles. Default value : 0.
Defines the minimum text size. (Default: 77).
Defines the factor to increase the text size by the number of articles. Default value : 100.
Defined the categories you do not want to be displayed. Use underscore instead of spaces in category names, use comma to separate the categories, like this:

makes "television", "television series", "celebrities", "food" and "yoga" categories not to show up in the categories cloud.

The coloring in text parameters do not work anymore, instead we have XML parameters:

Adds CSS classes to the tag cloud itself (The tagcloud class is always included).
Adds CSS styles to the style parameter of the tag cloud.
Adds CSS classes to the links.
Adds CSS styles to the links' style parameters.

in text parameters are place in between the two tags, and XML parameters are done inside the opening tag. Here's an example use showing where things are placed.

<tagcloud style="background: black;">
