I have wanted a true category cloud ever since I started blogging, and discovered the whimsical category cloud. What is not to love? All my words...floating around...different colors...different sizes.
Now with the coming of Blogger Beta are "Labels". Nice. Not perfect...yet. But, none the less, nice. I still wanted my cloud.
Then I found Code for Beta Blogger Label Cloud which has forever changed the face of my blog.
I actually have my cloud, and when a category is clicked, a page from my blog opens up with all the posts related to that category. Just as it should be. phydeaux3 has give simple complete, easy to follow instructions that produce a functioning label cloud. And he tells you how to modify the code to change the colors and font.
Update 9/8/06: If you are like me, and have special colors that aren't on the RGB Color Code Chart, I found a Hex-RGB Color Converter that will convert your lovely hexidecimal colors to RGB.
