Add Related Posts To the Blog

                                                           

Now here is a wonderful trick for displaying related posts beneath each of 

your blog posts, along with thumbnails. The related articles are chosen from 


other posts in that same category/label/tag. With this hack many of your 


readers will remain on your site for longer periods of time when they see 


related posts of interest.Related posts widget is a great widget to increase 


your post-views.You can add related posts just below of the every blog 


post.It lso shows thumbnails to attract the users.This widget was designed 


by bloggerplugins. I customize this widget and brought to you.If you like this 


then surely add it on your blog.... 



Step 1. Go To Blogger Dashboard >> Template >>Edit HTML;

Step 2. Check the "Expand widgets template" box; 

Step 3. Search (CTRL + F) for this piece of code:


 </head>

Step 4. Copy and paste the below code just before/above </head>




<!--Related Posts with thumbnails 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 h2{
font-size: 18px;
letter-spacing: 2px;
font-weight: bold;
text-transform: none;
color: #5D5D5D;
font-family: Arial Narrow;
margin-bottom: 0.75em;
margin-top: 0em;
padding-top: 0em;
}
#related-posts a{
border-right: 1px dotted #DDDDDD;
color:#5D5D5D;
}
#related-posts a:hover{
color:black;
background-color:#EDEDEF;
}
</style>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var defaultnoimage=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-PpjfsStySz0/UF91FE7rxfI/AAAAAAAACl8/092MmUHSFQ0/s1600/no_image.jpg&quot;;
var maxresults=5;
var splittercolor=&quot;#DDDDDD&quot;;
var relatedpoststitle=&quot;Related Posts&quot;;
</script>
<script src='http://helplogger.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/related-posts-with-big-thumbnails.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<!-- remove --></b:if>
<!--Related Posts with thumbnails Scripts and Styles End-->

Note:

- to change the default picture, replace the URL in blue with your own

- for displaying more than 5 posts, replace 5 value from "var maxresults=5;"

- remove the code in violet if you want the related posts to be displayed in 

homepage too.

Step 5. Now find the following code:

    <div class='post-footer'>

Step 6. And just above it, copy and paste the below code:

 <!-- Related Posts with Thumbnails 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>
<script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/default/-/&quot; + data:label.name + &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=related_results_labels_thumbs&amp;max-results=6&quot;' type='text/javascript'/></b:loop>
<script type='text/javascript'>
removeRelatedDuplicates_thumbs();
printRelatedLabels_thumbs(&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;);
</script>
</div><div style='clear:both'/>
<!-- remove --></b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'><b:if cond='data:post.isFirstPost'>
<a href='http://helplogger.blogspot.com'><img alt='Blogger Tricks' src='http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-K65p5zLLKQk/T3ObCINoP7I/AAAAAAAABmI/dF84-alnOu4/s1600/best+blogger+tips.png'/></a>
</b:if></b:if>
<!-- Related Posts with Thumbnails Code End-->

Note:

- change the 6 value from max-results=6 with the number of posts you want 

to be displayed.

- If you want the related posts to be displayed on homepage too, remove 

the code in violet.

Step 7. Save the Template.
