5 thoughts on “Movable Type Categories As Tag Cloud”

  1. Thanks for the tip! I used a different php script before and was having trouble on the category archive pages (it was only showing the categories associated with the entries listed on the category, instead of all of them). Your script did the trick and allowed me to show a consistent cloud on all pages (including category archives).

  2. Hey thanks for the nifty work. I’ve been tweaking it – and got the scaling you did to work for the del.icio.us tags themselves, since my tags were ending up too huge.
    The code for that didn’t work as it was posted, I had to as a end tag somewhere, and strip the ul and li, for some reason on my page….
    Thanks!!

  3. a) You rock!
    b) I was able to modify your script to create a category tag cloud without category archiving. check it out in action here: http://www.mig81.com/index.php?page=zeitgeist

    I know this might seem like a work-around, but some people might be able to use this sort of solution.
    c) Is there a way to adjust the increment at which the text size is adjusted? Some of the text is too small…
    d) You rock! Keep up the good work!

  4. P.S. You’ve got an error on your comment submission page: Odd number of elements in hash assignment at lib/MT/App/Comments.pm line 71. Use of uninitialized value in list assignment at lib/MT/App/Comments.pm line 71. Odd number of elements in hash assignment at lib/MT/App/Comments.pm line 71. Use of uninitialized value in list assignment at lib/MT/App/Comments.pm line 71.
    Secondly, about the script: I know how to adjust the increment, but is there a way to set minimum font size, for example, so it is not completely unreadable?
