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 UpAlways 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.
    <b:widget id='Label1' locked='false' title='Tags' type='Label'/>
    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:
    /*

    <b:includable id='main'>

    <h2><data:title/></h2>
    </b:if>
    <div class='widget-content' style='text-align: justify;'>

    //Settings / Variables
    var max = 150; //max css size (in percent)
    var min = 70; //min css size (in percent)
    var showCount = false; // show counts? true for yes, false for no
    var minCount = 1; // what is the minimum count for a tag to be shown? 1 for all


    //Begin code:
    var range = max - min;

    //Build label Array
    var labels = new Array();
    <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
    labels.push(&quot;<data:label.name/>&quot;);
    </b:loop>

    //URLs
    var urls = new Array();
    <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
    urls.push(&quot;<data:label.url/>&quot;);
    </b:loop>

    //Counts
    var counts = new Array();
    <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
    counts.push(&quot;<data:label.count/>&quot;);
    </b:loop>

    //Number sort funtion (high to low)
    function sortNumber(a, b)
    {
    return b - a;
    }

    //Make an independant copy of counts for sorting
    var sorted = counts.slice();

    //Find the largest tag count
    var most = sorted.sort(sortNumber)[0];

    //Begin HTML output
    for (x in labels)
    {
    if(x != &quot;peek&quot; &amp;&amp; x != &quot;forEach&quot; &amp;&amp; counts[x] >= minCount)
    {
    //Calculate textSize
    var textSize = min + Math.floor((counts[x]/most) * range);
    //Show counts?
    if(showCount)
    {
    var count = &quot;(&quot; + counts[x] + &quot;)&quot;;
    }else{
    var count = &quot;&quot;;
    }
    //Output
    document.write(&quot;<span style='font-size:&quot; + textSize + &quot;%'><a href='&quot; + urls[x] + &quot;' style='text-decoration:none;'>&quot; + labels[x] + count + &quot;</a></span> &quot; );
    }
    }
    </script>
