Label counts for old classic Blogger template

A blogger wanted to know if one will see the number of posts for a certain label when one uses an old classic Blogger template. The only way I can answer is to test it out myself, which was done with a demonstration blog at Eye Care Guide, a blog which uses a classic template. You will see the labels at the bottom left of the posts.

To make it clearer, I will put a screenshot below:

old classic Blogger template labels count

The labels are highlighted by white arrows pointing at them. As you can see, there are no indications of how many posts have been tagged with a particular. In the test, I have made sure that at least one label had been used to tag more than one posts.

Hopefully, this answer the blogger's question. If you use old classic Blogger template, there will be no label count, that is, the label will not have a number beside it to indicate how many posts have been tagged with that label.


  1. Some of the templates do not show label, do you know what is the html codes required to link back to labels? thanks.

  2. Hi Ren,

  3. Hallo! I would like to create a new template, however, I only know how to do the old kind... the html templates... I just want to find the labels' code to use on it.

  4. Hi Babara,

    For templates, ask Amanda or Blogger Buster

  5. Hi Peter! How are you? Sure busy helping people around!
    Now, I want to create a new label (link), ok its easy. But how to place it in a different place in the column/screen? I just want this new label not to be automatically grouped with the others, but to be isolated lower on
    the page.

    Can you help me?
    Thanks a lot!

  6. Hi Matte,

    The only way is manual. Use active link

  7. Hi Peter.

    I have a picture on my side bar, I would like to link it to all labels containing say books. There are five post under that label, and when my guest push the picture of the books, I would like the page to pop up only the posts with the label, Books. Did you already discuss this and I'm not finding it, or is this not possible?

    Thank you for your time.
