    The blog I need help with is loosendsdotme.wordpress.com.

  2. In order to assist, we need a link to the site starting with http://

    On WordPress.com in general, tags/categories will not appear unless you have published a post (not a page) using those tags/categories.

  3. There are no blog posts on your site, only a selection of pages where, as justjennifer says, tags will not appear.

    For the difference between posts and pages, see here: post vs. page

  4. Blogs are post based structures that provide for and encourage interactive communication. Websites are page based structures that operate as a one-way noticeboards. A WordPress blog can either be structured as a page based website or its conventional post based structure can be retained. For deeper insight into the differences between blogs that retain the conventional post vased structure and blogs that are resurctured to become page based structures and the SEO impacts > Better Blogging at WordPress.com: Pages and Posts and Revisting Keywords and Tags

  5. I had it published as private. Once I published it as public the tags showed.
    But the tags are not formatted the way cloud tags are with larger text and smaller text
    according to the amount a tag is cited. What am I missing here?
    Thanks

    Only tags sisplayed by Tag Cloud Widget display as you have describe in a sidebar or footer area for widgets. The Tags at the bottom of our posts do not display in larger and smaller text as the themes aren't coded to display them that way.

  7. The Tag is in a sidebar and is a Tag Cloud.
    The Tag Cloud is what I added from within the twenty eleven theme.
    So it should display as all Cloud Tags do.
    And the text that is displayed is extremely small. I can't find the css to correct this.

  8. The Tag Cloud Widget will display up to 45 of your most popular tags. However, I just clued into the fact this thread is in the CSS Forum and have no idea what you have done with CSS editing that has resulted in font sizes in the display you have now. Staff provide support for CSS editing, please be patient vwhile waiting for them to assist you.

  9. I haven't any idea either, well almost an idea but don't know were to take it.
    Thanks

    Tags are only displayed in the tag cloud for published posts that are not marked as private.

    In the tag cloud, tags are sized according to how often the tags are used in your posts. So, if each tag was published the same number of times, then all the tags in the tag cloud would be equally sized.
