If you are having trouble, like I did (see the before image to the left), in getting the default tag cloud to stay within the column you’ve placed it in, then you should try a different Tag Cloud plugin.
I did a search and found a plugin called the Configurable Tag Cloud. I’m using version 4.1. Keith, the author of this widget, titled it “CTC” since Configurable Tag Cloud was too long.
As you can see to the right, now, my tag cloud stays within the column width of the right sidebar and looks a lot better. Thanks for creating the widget Keith!
I have yet to play around with all the other configuration options, although they look easy to use. Let me know how you’ve configured this CTC Plugin. What do you think of my sidebar now? Any other widgets and plugins you’d recommend?
