I would like to filter wp_generate_tag_cloud so each of the tag links include the slug as a class. More specifically, I would like to output "tag-" + the tag slug.

Currently what is assigned as the class is "tag-link-" + the tag ID.

The the end, I would happy with either a replacement or just adding this additional class to the links.


one possible way: add a filter in functions.php of your theme:

add_filter ( 'wp_tag_cloud', 'tag_cloud_slug_class' );

function tag_cloud_slug_class( $taglinks ) {
    $tags = explode('</a>', $taglinks);
    $regex = "#(.*tag-link[-])(.*)(' title.*)#e";
        foreach( $tags as $tag ) {
        $tagn[] = preg_replace($regex, "('$1$2 tag-'.get_tag($2)->slug.'$3')", $tag );
    $taglinks = implode('</a>', $tagn);
    return $taglinks;
