Blogger Tag Cloud Widget by Categories / Labels

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 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 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.
