How Do Ya Like Me Now?

Thus far today has been more tricking out – both design as well as restyling the WP theme – of the Chief Alchemist site. As it turns out, I decided I didn’t like the WordPress wp_tag_cloud function. What looked to be a random parameter didn’t function as expected. Or was it just me?

Instead I used get_the_tags function along with the PHP array_rand() function. That combo got a slight bit tricky in having to deal with objects and arrays. But with a bit of oomph I was able to sort it out.

I’m proficient with PHP but I’m not yet a prolific as I want to be. That said, my PHP coding continues to progress. This is a good thing since I can come up with the idea (read: define the business need) and then make it happen without anything being lost in the translation.
