The latest version of the free Tag Groups plugin comes with a few bug fixes and a new shortcode. The shortcode creates a tabbed tag cloud, similar to what we already know, the only difference being that the names in the tabs are created automatically: You find there the first letters of your tags.
For example, using the shortcode [tag_groups_alphabet_tabs orderby="count" order="desc" separator="|"] you get the following tag cloud :
The tag cloud has not been tested with right-to-left languages. The sorting of the tabs is done according to the current WordPress locale.
Most parameters of the tabbed tag cloud will work here as well, as long as they make sense with these automatic “groups”. New parameters are include_letters and exclude_letters.
This feature works only with shortcodes. A Gutenberg block will follow later, when I find more time. Please note that it will be ported into the premium version only with its next update.
You can install this new version from your backend or from the WordPress repository.
I’m also wishing you peaceful and happy holidays!
