How to Add flash Animated label cloud Blogumus for Blogger

"Blogumus" is an Flash based tag cloud widget which uses scripts converted from Roy Tanck's WP Cumulus plugin for Wordpress. I fell in love with Roy's original Cumulus plugin when I saw it, and simply had to learn how to convert this for use in Blogger powered blogs. The result is the widget you can see in action at the top of this post. Hover your mouse over the Flash object to see the animation begin. In this post, I'll explain how you can add Blogumus to your own Blogger layout with ease!

How to Add flash Animated label cloud Blogumus for Blogger

Step 1:
First Of all Goto Your blogger Layout>Page Elements page and add a Labels Widget there..You can Do that using the Add a Page Element Option on that

Choose to sort the labels Alphabetically when prompted.

Step 2:
After Adding the Label Widget Goto Layout>Edit Html (Do not expand the widget templates for the sake of easy explanation)

You will find some code similar to

<b:widget id='Label2' locked='false' title='Labels Cloud' type='Label'>
<b:includable id='main'>
<b:if cond='data:title'>
<div class='widget-content'>
<b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:label.url'>
<span expr:dir='data:blog.languageDirection'>
<a expr:dir='data:blog.languageDirection' expr:href='data:label.url'>
<span dir='ltr'>(<data:label.count/>)</span>
<b:include name='quickedit'/>

Immediatly after this line, paste the following section of code:

<b:widget id='Label1' locked='false' title='Labels' type='Label'>
<b:includable id='main'>
<b:if cond='data:title'>
<div class='widget-content'><center>

<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
<div id='flashcontent'>Blogumulus by <a
href=''>Roy Tanck</a> and <a
Fazani</a> | Distributed by <a href=''>Blogger Templates Designs</a></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var so = new
"tagcloud", "240", <!-- width="240" -->
"300", "7", <!-- height="300" -->
// uncomment next line to enable transparency
//so.addParam("wmode", "transparent");
so.addVariable("tcolor", "0x333333");
so.addVariable("mode", "tags");
so.addVariable("distr", "true");
so.addVariable("tspeed", "100");
"<tags><b:loop values='data:labels'
var='label'><a expr:href='data:label.url'
so.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "always");

<b:include name='quickedit'/></center>

Then preview your template. If installed correctly, you should see the tag cloud appear in your sidebar.
If you want to change the size and colour of the label cloud , just play around with the highlighted numbers in the code and you will do fine.

I tried to adopt it for my blog but it doesn't seems to work to show Chinese charactors (most my labels are in Chinese).
Is there any way to make it work?

Excuse me. I have successfully embodied this widget but face the problem that there is always one tag missing. (no certain one, sometimes it may be tag A missing and other time tag B disappears!)

Do you have a cure to this? Thanks a lot!
