#5726 closed enhancement (fixed)

Random order argument/Hook in wp_tag_cloud()

wp_tag_cloud currently accepts 2 'order' arguments: DESC & ASC.

This patch adds 'RAND' capabilities to randomize the order of the tag cloud or list.

Can prevent large font face tags from being next to each other when the user doesn't necessarily want to sort the tags alphabetically.


<?php wp_tag_cloud('order=RAND'); ?>

#2 @fitztrev

  • Summary changed from Random order argument in wp_tag_cloud() to Random order argument/Hook in wp_tag_cloud()

Another option is to make it pluggable. As it stands now, there is no way to hook into the $counts array between the time it is created and when the html is processed. This may have more uses beyond just reordering the array.

Patch provided.
