  • How works it?

Each label link is nested inside a span tag followed by a class named label-size. If the font-size is not specified the widget changes font-size of each label according to its post-count. Therefore showing big and small clouds. Introducing custom styles would over-ride the exiting styles thus changing the entire look.
  • Turn Random Cloud display into Blocks
The code below can be customized in several ways to create exciting label designs. You can also add background images to them.
