This widget is perfect for blogspot users who desire a simple tag cloud for their Categories. The Labels Cloud can easily be implemented within the sidebar of your blog and will match your template wonderfully.

Steps for Implementation

Step 1: Back it Up
Always make sure to back up your Blogger Template before doing anything else!

Step 2: The Labels Gadget

Make sure that you have the Labels Page Element installed. If you haven’t already…
  1. Go to Layout >Page Elements .
  2. Click “Add a Gadget” and then add the “Labels” gadget.
Step 3: Locating the “Old Code”
  1. Now go to Layout >Edit HTML
  2. Make sure that the “Expand Widgets Template” box is unchecked.
  3. Now we need to search for the code that looks like this. Your code may look a little different. So try using your browser’s search tool to find type=’Label’.
Step 4: Replacing the “Old Code” with the “New Code”
  1. Once you’ve located type=’Label’, remove the whole line of code that looks just like the code mentioned in part 3 of step 3.
  2. Replace this code that you’ve just deleted with the code below:

Step 5: Previewing the New Tag Cloud

Before saving the template make sure to click preview. The new tag cloud should now be visible. If not, make sure that you’ve completed all the steps correctly.

    Wow.. thats a great widget..<br />i was looking for the widget like this.<br />But, when i tried to apply to my blog/HTML, the codes can be applied.<br />Is it true if i change the code (the codes in blue box at step 3 no. 3) with all codes you give.<br />I hope you answer quickly. Sorry if my engglish so bad…<br />Thanks…

  • papercouturiere

    I&#39;ve got the label cloud on my sidebar, but how do I get the labels to actually get there? Sorry, but I&#39;m fairly computer illiterate…when I make a new post and I type in the &quot;labels&quot; for each post at the bottom, I thought those words were what made up a &quot;label cloud&quot;, but nothing is in the label cloud. Make sense??? HELP! PlEASE! 🙂

  • Doctor Wiz

    my english is not good but i&#39;d like to thank you for your great widget.i tried it and it worked.but the tag cloud font is too small in my blog. as you see:<br />—<br />i don&#39;t know much about the codes.would you give me a soloution for this i need to change part of the code?

  • Doctor Wiz

    dude. i solved my problem.<br />i changed a part of the code.i added &quot;10+&quot; before &quot;min + Math.floor((counts[x]/most) * range);&quot;<br />thanks

  • John Smith

    <b>papercouturiere</b>, do the labels display in your sidebar without the Tag Cloud Hack?<br /><br /><b>Doctor Wiz</b>, I&#39;m glad you were able to change the font size. Just look for var min = 70.
