Adding a del.icio.us tag cloud to your website or blog

del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site that allows you to save bookmarks online. Typically when you save a bookmark to del.icio.us you’ll mark it with one or more tags allowing you to categorize. One of the cool features they provide is the ability to place a tag cloud on your site with a simply script tag like this:

<script type="text/javascript"
src
="http://del.icio.us/feeds/js/tags/<uid>?count=50;size=12-25;color=87ceeb-ffff99">
</
script>

Where:

  • <uid> is your del.icio.us user ID (without the angle brackets)
  • count = the number of tags to display
  • size = the range of font sizes used
  • color = range of colors used

For some crazy reason del.icio.us calls these tagrolls? Anyway…
