  7. Thanks, that’s really good looking sitemap.

  8. http://techstuff007.blogspot.in/p/sitemap.html
    Its my sitemap table. well u can see from the link that all the blocks are active at once what to do..

  9. I followed the directions exactly, but I’m having a problem similar to the first commenter: the majority of the time, all the labels are expanded at once with all posts showing. Only about 1 out of 20 times that I refresh the page will it show the labels un-expanded like in your demo pic. I tried it in all browsers and am having the same problem in each one. Is there anything I am doing wrong?

  10. Geo Nikola says:

    hi,s there anyway to show specific labels and not all the blog content?

  11. @Silvia Masaracchio, Change max-results=1000 in the second code to 2000.

  12. Silvia Masaracchio says:

  13. Thank you so much, your instructions worked magnificently.

  14. @Md Azeem, Search for font-size:12px; in the css code and then change its value from 12 to desired font size value.
