Installation Notes: You’ll want Donncha’s Sitewide Tags Pages(v 0.2) installed and running for a while (to generate posts in the tags blog). I have not tested this widget with any other sitewide tags-type aggregation, but user can substitute any existing public blog id if the ‘tags_blog_id’ doesn’t exist. Sitewide “three-in-one” Multi Widget Panel is a widget so put it with he rest of your wpmu widgets. Designed/tested for WPMU2.6.
