Blogger is releasing many features as a part of Blogger’s 10th happy birthday. Many bloggers (Blogger User) requested Blogger to change the label gadget or make it more flexible when the blogger team invited suggestions from them last April. And as of blogging groups wish, Blogger has made this feature available. It has now improved its “Label” element, thus making it more flexible and customizable according to blogger’s need and wish. With this improvement Blogger user can easily change the old format of Labels display to “Labels cloud”. You can also choose among your labels to display in the gadget. We shall be discussing two major changes from blogger in this Labels widget below.
Label Clouds of Blogger
To add this feature you need to have already added the Labels page element to your template. If you haven’t added this widget, just go to PAGE ELEMENTS section under LAYOUT and “Add a Gadget” and choose “Labels“.
If you have already added the Labels Element in your blog, you can click on “EDIT” for the “Labels” widget.
See the Image below, you will get after you add or edit your “labels” widget.
Under the display option check that “Cloud” radio active button as shown in the image above. This will change your view of labels and you will get the new feature “Label cloud” in your blog.
Selected Labels to Display
Another Important change in the same “labels” gadget is the ability to choose the Labels to display. Previously, all Labels were displayed in the blog and this often limited to using labels if you have used the labels section for displaying the category one. Now you can select from the labels to display under the category widget (if you are using) or the same label widget.
As shown in the image below, you can edit the labels and choose by placing tick in the box adjacent to the specified labels you want to display. Deselect the labels you don’t want to display in your widget.
I really like this feature of blogger and really appreciate it. However limitations such as actual differentiation among the “tags” and the “labels” remain even if we use under those topics.
This post is to make Blogger User aware of the new feature that is introduced lately. Blogger Buzz: Partly cloudy, chance of labels notes the feature “This is one of many features announced as part of Blogger’s 10th birthday. Happy Birthday!”
We wish to see more improvements soon as part of the tenth birthday of Blogger.
