Grab and go, buddy! Had fun figuring this one out :)

  • Create a file and upload to your plugins.

  • Call list_ajax_tags() in theme where you want to display these tags.

  • Modify to suit your needs


(had trouble formatting the code here)

yesssssssssss. thanks – Jack Stewart Nov 17 '11 at 2:27
@Jack You're welcome! One thing I forgot to go back and add was a conditional within the jQuery to only have one box checked at a time. Also the even currently fires whether you check or uncheck since it's just looking for the click and not the "checked" attribute. Anyway, if you need help with that too, let me know! – 5t3ph Nov 17 '11 at 13:17
