Guys, one of my clients has just pointed out that the Tag cloud "doesn't work" and frankly I feel a bit stupid now!

It does work in terms of increasing size & weight of the tags within the cloud... but doesn't appear to filter posts by tag when clicked. Is the expected behaviour? So it's essentially just a visual indicator?

I wouldn't have expected this to be the case, wonder if i've done something wrong during setup... as  far as I know I am using the latest version (1.6).

When you click any tag, what do you see in the browser's address bar? It should be similar to: "" and posts should filter on that "tagname".

Thanks rtur. When i click the tag, it attempts to redirect to to "...?tag=/tagname" but then automatically redirects to /default.aspx, showing all posts.

The blogs are configured on subdomains, eg - i have an index.html at the root of each subdomain, redirecting to, - thought this could be the cause, but having removed the index file I am still experiencing the same behaviour

If you manually type in the tag into the address bar, same problem?

What about if you add "default.aspx" in there (by typing it into the address bar):

Both of these work for me.  Neither work for you?

Everything else is working?  For example, category pages, Pages, individual post pages (when you click on the title for a post)...
