      <div class="widget-wrap">
        <h3 class="widget-title"><%= __('tagcloud') %></h3>

    Last step

    • use hexo clean && hexo g && hexo s to see the change. hexo clean must be done before use hexo g.
    • PS: Don't use the command hexo g -d or hexo d -g, @See Issue 7


    Now the hexo-tag-cloud plugin support customize feature. It's simple to change the color and the font for the tag cloud.

    • Add these config below to your _config.yml file(which under your blog root directory)
    # hexo-tag-cloud
        textFont: 'Trebuchet MS, Helvetica'
        textColor: '#333'
        textHeight: 25
        outlineColor: '#E2E1D1'
        maxSpeed: 0.5 # range from [0.01 ~ 1]
        pauseOnSelected: false # true means pause the cloud tag movement when highlight a tag
    • then use hexo clean && hexo g && hexo s to enjoy your different tag cloud
