Custom Word Cloud 0.2
The custom word cloud plugin will generate word cloud images based on page
content or the contents of a form POST input named “content”. The cloud is
specified using shortcode tags on the page where the content or form exist
Unzip the custom-word-plugin.zip file and copy the resulting custom-word-cloud directory to your
WordPress plugins directory.
Make sure the web server can write to the custom-word-cloud/cache/ directory.
And upload any TTF font files you want to use into the custom-word-cloud/fonts/ directory.
Activate the plugin and create a page with the appropriate shortcode tags.
Why are some of the letters in some words are covering up other words and letters?
There is a long running bug in the PHP imagettfbbox() function that calculates
the coordinates of the box around a string drawn with a TTF font where the
letters that drop below the baseline, like the lower case letter p, fall
outside the bounding box. This has been fixed in recent versions of PHP but
for older versions you can create a larger word margin in the attributes to as
a temporary fix.
