Blogger,as a part of its 10th Birthday celebrations, has now released a new version of the label gadget.This one is much better that the old version

What is new?...



  1. It comes with a Label Cloud.
  2. It lets you choose which labels are to be displayed.
  3. You can customize it further using CSS.

Drawbacks

  1. The cloud just has 5 variations.All labels will be divided into 5 classes depending on the usage of these labels.
  2. It would have been better if there was a bigger number of classes. 
You can customize the looks further by using CSS..As i said it has 5 classes of clouds..You can add CSS styles to each of them.

Here is a sample Style which will give a bluish look for the cloud..Here i have applied styles for all 5 label classes and their hover styles (so 10 style definitions in total).
.label-size-5 a {color: #2789ce; /*color of a label of class 5*/
font-size: 3em;
text-decoration: none;
   }
.label-size-5 a:hover {color: #2789ce; /*color of a label of class 5 on hover*/
text-decoration: underline;
   }
.label-size-4 a {color: #2789ce;/*color of a label of class 4*/
font-size: 2.5em;
text-decoration: none;
   }
.label-size-4 a:hover {color: #2789ce;/*color of a label of class 4 on hover*/
text-decoration: underline;
   }
.label-size-3 a {color: #2789ce;/*color of a label of class 3*/
font-size: 2em;
text-decoration: none;
   }
.label-size-3 a:hover {color: #2789ce; /*color of a label of class 3 on hover*/
text-decoration: underline;
   }
.label-size-2 a {color: #2789ce;/*color of a label of class 2*/
font-size: 1.5em;
text-decoration: none;
   }
.label-size-2 a:hover {color: #2789ce; /*color of a label of class 2 on hover*/
text-decoration: underline;
   }
.label-size-1 a {color: #2789ce;/*color of a label of class 1*/
font-size: 1em;
text-decoration: none;
   }
.label-size-1 a:hover {color: #2789ce; /*color of a label of class 1 on hover*/
text-decoration: underline;
}
Here all of these CSS styles are customizable.You can change the colours and font sizes of each of the 5 classes.


color: #2789ce; is responsible for the colouring of each of the classes.You can change it appropriately with some other hex colour code or something like color:red;
You can adjust the font size of these 5 classes by adjusting the corresponding font-size: attribute of that label size class.. (em is a unit of font size just like px)
I have commented the css codes(10 comments)..You can remove those comments if you want(eg: /*color of a label of class 2 on hover*/ is a comment)
These CSS style definitions should be placed above
