Hi All,

I am using the "Tag Groups" plugin on this site:

A few weeks ago Ray helped me with the front page boxed tag display, which is looking good, but I am hoping to refine the tag lists using the plugin on this front page, and within each post.

First question:

The Tag Groups plugin allows the admin to create groups of tags; in the case of this site I have grouped tags as either "type" or "feature" of an assignment. You can see these groupings in the dashboard in tags and tag group admin.

On the front page right now you are seeing how the tag groups shortcode displays "tag list" under "type" and all tags as a boxed tag cloud under feature. Ideally, I would like the tags in the "type" group to display under the "type of assignment" heading in the same boxed format that ray designed (same as category display)and the feature tags to display under the "assignment feature" heading.

Second question:

Within each post, I would like to use shortcode to auto-populate the "type" tags in the type column and the "feature" tags in the feature column. Ideally the shortcode displayed tags lists would be live links, so a user could see that the assignment feature "student choice" and click "student choice" to see other, similarly tagged assignments. These lists do not need to be boxed (as they would be on front page) a simple list would make sense here.
Sample post:

Does this make sense? Thanks for your help with this. I have poked around and tried various short code but could not get the tag groups to display correctly.
