Tag cloud on one's tag page.

I like the look of the tag cloud, but I find it too busy for a sidebar, so when someone in s2flexisquares posted a tutorial on how to put a tag cloud on one's tag page (there's also a tutorial on how to put it in the sidebar above that, but we don't need that here obviously), I jumped on it. When I switched to expressive, I missed my tag cloud on my tags page, so I decided to see if I could tweek the flexisquares code for it to fit expressive. I was happy to find it wasn't hard, and thought I'd share in case anyone else would like this too.

To save myself the trouble of having to copy and past massive amounts of code, I'm going to have you start by grabbing the code from over there, and following their directions. You can compile your layer if you want, it won't harm anything, but your subject line won't match anything you already have. What you need to do to make it blend in right and pick up your formatting from your entries is replace everything from "#### Print the tag cloud in an entry-like post ####" down with:

print """
<div class="post-asset asset">
<div class="asset-inner">
<div class="asset-header">
<h2 class="asset-name page-header2">
$subject
</h2></div>
<div class="asset-content">
<div class="asset-body">
$list
<br /></div></div></div></div>
""";

}

I am still rather awkward with digging through layers to find the information I need, so there is a chance that there could be a better way to fix the part I had to change. If anyone sees a better way to do this, please comment and I'll update the entry to include the new information. Thanks to the s2flexisquares community for the original tutorial.
