Blogger Label Widget Style #3 and #4

Tag Cloud design

Tag Clouds are used to display all the categories or labels present in a blog. The inherent design of this widget in Blogger is very minimal and has a lot of space for creativity. In this post we will be showcasing two Label Widget designs which you can easily integrate within your blog. Both these use :after and :before selectors to manipulate the tag’s design at the edges. Also CSS3 Gradients and Box-Shadow properties are also used to give it more sophisticated and peppy look . Lets get started then

Just a Second
Before you get started make sure that your Blog has the Label Widget present already and set the Display option to Cloud . After you have done this then only proceed to the next

Also Don’t forget to checkout the Design #1 and Design #2 of the Label Styles.

    1. Hi John , Firstly congrats on getting Page Rank 4 🙂

      Now for using them on in-post Labels , I checked your blog , and there are two ways

      If you are using a small snippet of code in your template to display the Labels , then just add .post-labels class side by side each .label-size class in the above CSS

      It would look something like

      .post-labels , .label-size{
      margin:0;
      padding:0;
      position:relative;
      }
      .label-size a , .post-labels a{
      float:left;
      height:24px;
      line-height:24px;
      position:relative;
      font-size:12px;
      margin-bottom: 9px;
      margin-left:20px;
      padding:0 10px 0 12px;
      background:#0089e0;
      color:#fff;
      text-decoration:none;
      -moz-border-radius-bottomright:4px;
      -webkit-border-bottom-right-radius:4px;
      border-bottom-right-radius:4px;
      -moz-border-radius-topright:4px;
      -webkit-border-top-right-radius:4px;
      border-top-right-radius:4px;
      }
      .label-size a:before , .post-labels a:before{
      content:"";
      float:left;
      position:absolute;
      top:0;
      left:-12px;
      width:0;
      height:0;
      border-color:transparent #0089e0 transparent transparent;
      border-style:solid;
      border-width:12px 12px 12px 0;
      }
      .label-size a:after , .post-labels a:after{
      content:"";
      position:absolute;
      top:10px;
      left:0;
      float:left;
      width:4px;
      height:4px;
      -moz-border-radius:2px;
      -webkit-border-radius:2px;
      border-radius:2px;
      background:#fff;
      -moz-box-shadow:-1px -1px 2px #004977;
      -webkit-box-shadow:-1px -1px 2px #004977;
      box-shadow:-1px -1px 2px #004977;
      }

      .label-size a:hover , .post-labels a:hover {background:#555;}
      .label-size a:hover:before , .post-labels a:hover:before{border-color:transparent #555 transparent transparent;}

      Otherwise if you are using the Default Blogger Option to display them , then the procedure is a bit different
