Hi all
I am pretty sure this will be a easy thing to get working just cant seem to get my head wrapped around the issue
basically what I need to do is have the blog tags grow in size with the amount that blogs that reference the tag

so basically the tag that has the most blogs in will be the biggest.
I know that I will have to do a query and have a count
If anyone has a suggestion it would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Hi @Skullies,

BlogTag has a function BlogPosts() which returns all the Blogposts with that Tag assigned to it.

So in the template when looping the BlogTag you can use

$BlogPosts.Count() which returns the number of posts that has the assigned.
