I'm trying to pull just the tag names as an array collection in order to write them out as a simple listing, without links, but the array that's returned does not send the name as an indexible item.

array(2) {
  [0]=> string(129) "<a href='#' class='tag-link-31' title='1 topic' style='font-size: 8pt;'>tag 1</a>"
  [1]=> string(127) "<a href='#' class='tag-link-30' title='1 topic' style='font-size: 8pt;'>tag 2</a>"

Is there another method I can use to get the entire site's tag collection with just the tag names? This is my current code, but because of the array indexes, I get the links as well.

$tagNames = wp_tag_cloud('format=array');
echo implode($tagNames,", ");   

try :

function my_tag_list_123($sep){
    $tags = get_tags();

    foreach ($tags as $tag){
        $ret[]= $tag->name;
    return implode($sep, $ret);

and call it when you need like this

echo my_tag_list_123(',');

hope this helps.

            echo '<li>' . $tag . '</li>';

    Please explain your code. Dumping of code like this without any explanation does not make a good answer and should be avoided. Please file an edit and add a proper explanation how your code works – Pieter Goosen Nov 3 '14 at 15:46
