  1. Hi.Akshay… I have a doubt.Which words should I replace with my label name in the 6th sentence?I replaced the term ‘Label’ in it and tried…It didn’t work for me.Please help…
    And another doubt.Can I use this single tag for more than one page(not all pages).If yes..How?
    Thanks,
    Siddiq

    • Hi Siddiq, according to the knowledge I posess, we can not get specific styles for specific labels. The 6th one applies for all the labels. In case if you want the things to happen for a specific label alone, you can track its url and get things done via specific url condition.

      – Lets make blogger the best platform since it is. @Thanks Makadiya for spreading the knowledge about these things which are outstanding. Blogger conditional tags make things in an awesome way. Keep going and spread the love for blogging forever and ever :)

    • Thank you so much rakesh for this nice conversion.

  2. What to do if don’t want a widget to appear in specific pages?!..because hello bar widget works differently in chrome and mozilla..Please tell me..Thanks a ton..:)
