    So, recently gotten into using wordpress again and was really happy that I found a way to list tags.

    But I’m having a problem with the excluding bit! Even though I put “test” and “ignore me” as excluded tags, they’re still showing up.

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

    To have the tag cloud exclude certain tags, you need to enter the tag ID rather than the tag itself:

    Tag IDs, separated by commas

    The tag ID is a number, which you’ll find in the tags section:

    https://brilliantlosers.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=post_tag

    If you click the tag to edit it, you’ll find its ID in the URL. For example, the tag ID for your “test” tag is the number 8:

    Just let me know if you need further help.
