Tag Cloud limitations

Question: Does the Tag Cloud block have limitations? If so, what are the alternatives?

core/tag-cloud
Tag Cloud
A cloud of your most used tags.

Answer: Yes. It produces a cloud of your most used tags. If you have a lot of tags and a lot of posts but only use a tag once or twice then the Tag Cloud block may not show your tags.

The Server Side rendering of the tag cloud block invokes wp_tag_cloud(). The default value for the number to display is 45. If you use more than 45 tags then you’re stuffed. In this tag cloud we can’t see Universal since the tags are ordered by name ASC.

So what are the alternatives?

Override

I’m going to try to implement an override to the block using a similar technique to my override to the Query block to support order by rand.

Other solutions?

Question: Can you use the Query block to display a list of all your tags.

Answer: No.
