Written By avinash on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 | 2:25 PM

A widget is a simple gadget that will appear in your blog and this will add more flavour to your blog.You can have your own widgets by using HTML codes,Java etc.You can add anything you want in your widget like number of people online in your blog, weather report etc.

Here are few steps that I suggest  to create your own widget.

STEP 1)Add a Labels gadget in your blogger template. If you have already installed then ignore this step.
Go to Layouts and choose any column where you are about to install this new widget
Click on 'Add gadget' button and add the 'label gadget'.

STEP 2) Go to Template --->Edit HTML

NOTE:Click "Expand Widgets Template". It should be in tick mark

STEP 3)Search for <b:widget id='Label1' locked='false' title='Tags' type='Label'/>.If you have a different code then in your browser's search bar or tool search for  type='Label'.

STEP 4) After you search for  type='Label',delete the code in that line and replace with the codes given below.

<b:widget id='Label1' locked='false' title='Tags' type='Label'>
<b:includable id='main'> <b:if cond='data:title'> content' style='text-a<h2><data:title/></h2> </b:if> <div class='widget -lign: justify;'> /javascript'> <script type='tex t

//Settings / Variables
var max = 150; //max css size (in percent)var min = 70; //min css size (in percent) ue for yes, false for no var minCount = 1; // what is the minimumvar showCount = false; // show counts? t r count for a tag to be shown? 1 for all //Begin code: var range = max - min; //Build label Array e/>&quot;); </b:loop> //var labels = new Array(); <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'> labels.push(&quot;< mURLs var urls = new Array(); <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'> urls.push(&quot;<data:label.url/>&quot;); </b:loop> b:loop> //Counts var counts = new Array(); <b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'> counts.push(&quot;<data:label.count/>&quot;); < / //Number sort funtion (high to low) function sortNumber(a, b) { return b - a;

//Make an independant copy of counts for sorting
var sorted = counts.slice();

ar most = sorted.sort(sortNu
//Find the largest tag count


//Begin HTML output
for (x in labels)
ch&quot; &amp;&amp; counts[x] >= minCount) { //Calculate textSize var textSize = min + Math.fl
if(x != &quot;peek&quot; &amp;&amp; x != &quot;forE
aoor((counts[x]/most) * range);
//Show counts?
var count = &quot;(&quot; + counts[x] + &quot;)&quot;;
+ urls[x] + &quot;' styl
var count = &quot;&quot;;
document.write(&quot;<span style='font-size:&quot; + textSize + &quot;%'><a href='&quot
;e='text-decoration:none;'>&quot; + labels[x] + count + &quot;</a></span> &quot; );
Widgets</a></span> </div> </b:includable> </b:widget>
<span style="font-size:80%;float:right;">Powered by <a href="">Blogger
