I found that I can do <?php wp_tag_cloud( array( 'taxonomy' => 'name', 'format' => 'list' ) ); ?>

But I want the list to be seperated by the letter. Alphabeticaly is what I want. So it would display the letter A then all names with that letter and the letter B with all of the b's and so on.

Any ideas?

What exactly do you mean by separated?

If you want multiple tags clouds you will probably need to:

  • fetch full list of terms;
  • split it into groups by your criteria;
  • call wp_tag_cloud() for each group, using include argument to use specific subset of terms.

Well I want to have a page listing all of the custom taxonomies. Then within each letter I want it to be separated but using multiple tag clouds is probably the best way to go. – Spewf Jun 2 '11 at 6:25
