Blogger - Get Back Missing Labels

This worked. I consolidated information I found across the web.

1. Make sure the "Labels" box is checked: Page Elements> Blog Posts> Edit (Mine was no longer checked... odd) Note you may have changed the "Labels" box to something else, like "Tags".

2. Go to Design > Edit HTML and Download Full Template (this is your backup just in case)

3. Click on the check box which says “Expand Widget Templates

4. Look for 
 <b:include data='post' name='postQuickEdit'/>  and immediately after that place the following code. Yes, just put this code between the line above and whatever is directly below that line.

 <span class='post-labels'>
        <b:if cond='data:post.labels'>
          <b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
            <a expr:href='data:label.url' rel='tag'><></a>       
            <b:if cond='data:label.isLast != "true"'>,</b:if>

5. You can click "PREVIEW" and view your work before committing with "SAVE NOW".

As you can see on my posts, I now have my labels back.
