With WordPress now having built-in tag support, I’ve updated the plugin to show a list of your tags in columns that I originally created to work with Ultimate Tag Warrior.

The plugin will list WordPress tags in columns and in vertical groups.


  1. Download the plugin and rename from cre8d_tags_in_columns.txt to cre8d_tags_in_columns.php
  2. Upload the plugin to your plugins directory and activate the plugin
  3. Access the listing by including echo cre8d_tag_columns(); somewhere in your template. This will give, by default, 3 columns and tags grouped vertically in 5s. If you wanted 2 columns and groups of ten, use: echo cre8d_tag_columns(2,10); and so forth.
  4. Add to your stylesheet the following:

    .list-column { float: left; width: 160px; margin: 0 5px; }
    .list-column ul { margin-left: 0; padding-left: 0; }
    .list-column ul li { list-style-type: none; }
    .spacer { margin-bottom: 20px; }

  5. Optionally tweak the width of .list-column to suit your blog’s layout. You may like to change the vertical spacing (.spacer) between groups too.
