xili-tidy-tags 1.9: NEW tag grouping features

Here in demo:
xili-tidy-tags 1.9 introduces new grouping features using core WordPress functionalities.

The screenshot above is explicit 😉

If you click tag ‘editor‘, under the Tags Archives title, for demo (as a list), link to another tags in other languages (here only french).
The navigation menu is also improved and language (here flag) redirect to another tag of the group in the target language.

Don’t confuse new multilingual group (tags with the same meaning but in a different language) and tidy tags groups (tags grouped under a word (semantic group like trademark) or a language (english or german,…). Imagine a tag ‘red’ grouped with ‘rouge’ and ‘rot’, with new function it is possible to display the group and to find a tag in another language (rouge in french…).

xili-tidy-tags version 1.8.6 released with a new template tag !

With new version of WP this summer (3.6 oscar), now new version of xili-tidy-tags plugin:

As example, the source now contains a new template tag – xili_tidy_tags_dropdown – to display a tag cloud as a dropdown list as expected by some users.
In my opinion, dropdown html tag is a little strange way and a flowed solution combining html and a little javascript (requiring jQuery) to redirect to the link associated with the tag (like in a cloud).

The example code is at (around) line 1009 in file of the plugin. The syntax is very easy like another plugin tag for cloud with a param (id_dropdown) to set the unique ID to a unique value for jQuery.

Soon more explanations…
