When I register the taxonomy I have this which I thought might hide it:

'show_tagcloud' => false

The default category page does not show a tag cloud so why does my custom taxonomy page, how do I disable it?

enter image description here

register_taxonomy('gmc_region', 'recipe', 
  'labels' => array( 
    'name' => _x( 'Regions', 'taxonomy general name' ), 
    'singular_name' => _x( 'Region', 'taxonomy singular name' ),
    'popular_items' => __( 'Popular Regions' ),
    'search_items' => __( 'Search Regions' ), 
    'all_items' => __( 'All Regions' ), 
    'parent_item' => __( 'Parent Region' ), 
    'parent_item_colon' => __( 'Parent Region:' ), 
    'edit_item' => __( 'Edit Region' ), 
    'update_item' => __( 'Update Region' ), 
    'add_new_item' => __( 'Add New Region' ), 
    'new_item_name' => __( 'New Region Name' ), 
    'menu_name' => __( 'Regions' ), 
  'rewrite' => array( 
    'slug' => 'regions',
    'with_front' => false
  'show_in_nav_menus' => false,
  'show_ui' => false,
  'show_tagcloud' => false

Thanks, Kevin

Can we see your code that registers your taxonomy please? – Jared Jan 24 '12 at 15:08

A bit late but I just learned how to remove the taxonomy cloud. In your taxonomy label definition change this line

'popular_items' => __( 'Popular Regions' ),

to this

'popular_items' => NULL,

and the tag cloud will no longer appear
