Add Simple Related Posts Widget to Blogger Blog

Author: Gagan Masoun
Related Posts Widget
I've been already talking about the Related Posts widget for your blogger or WordPress blogs that shows related posts along with thumbnails just at the bottom of your blog posts. But many bloggers want to use simpler and cleaner way to show related posts without any thumbnail. Today, I'm going to share simple related posts widget for your blog that will show a fresh related posts section below your articles. Add this widget with two simple steps. Let's start the tutorial:

Add Simple Related Posts Widget to Blogger Blog

  • Go to Blogger Dashboard » Your Site » Template
  • Click On Edit HTML » Find </head> Tag
  • Paste The Given Below Code Just Above The <head>
<!--Related Posts Scripts and Styles Start-->
<!--Remove--><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<style type="text/css">
#related-posts {
float:center;
text-transform:none;
height:100%;
min-height:100%;
padding-top:5px;
padding-left:5px;
}
#related-posts .widget{
padding-left:6px;
margin-bottom:10px;
}
#related-posts .widget h2, #related-posts h2{
font-size: 1.6em;
font-weight: bold;
color: black;
font-family: Georgia, &#8220;Times New Roman&#8221;, Times, serif;
margin-bottom: 0.75em;
margin-top: 0em;
padding-top: 0em;
}
#related-posts a{
color:blue;
}
#related-posts a:hover{
color:blue;
}
#related-posts ul{
list-style-type:none;
margin:0 0 0px 0;
padding:0px;
text-decoration:bold;
font-size:15px;
text-color:#000000
}
#related-posts ul li{
background:transparent url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-sc882yFSwKY/UfeprMWLdcI/AAAAAAAA7yQ/3CtAdGkUJPY/s1600/staricon.png) no-repeat ;
display:block;
list-style-type:none;
margin-bottom: 13px;
padding-left: 30px;
padding-top:0px;}
</style>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var relatedpoststitle="Related Posts";
</script>
<script src='https://googledrive.com/host/0B66hLK2d2x4VZFJWNTExM1Q3S28' type='text/javascript'/>
<!--Remove--></b:if>
<!--Related Posts Scripts and Styles End-->
</head>
  •  Now, Press (CTRL + F) and Find The Below Line.
<data:post.body/>

  • Just Below it, Paste the Code Below: 
<!-- Related Posts Code Start-->
<!--Remove--><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div id='related-posts'>
<b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
<b:if cond='data:label.isLast != &quot;true&quot;'>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/summary/-/&quot; + data:label.name + &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=related_results_labels&amp;max-results=6&quot;' type='text/javascript'/></b:if></b:loop><a href='http://www.blogsdaddy.com/2013/07/simple-related-posts-widget-blogger.html' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'><img style="border: 0" alt="Related Posts Widget for Blogger" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-21mCXuKL3Wc/UfesKRHea5I/AAAAAAAA7yg/w_z7o-VWvV0/s1600/blogger_logo.png" /></a>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var maxresults=5;
removeRelatedDuplicates(); printRelatedLabels(&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;);
</script>
</div>
<!--Remove--></b:if>
