Related Posts with Thumbnails Widget for Blogger Blogs

1 min read

This widget will display related posts under each post in your Blogger blog. The uniqueness of this widget is that it displays related suggestions with image thumbnails. Additionally, the posts show different effects on hovering. You can customize the hovering effects also if you are skilled in CSS.

Previously, the related posts with thumbnails were only possible to add using Linkwithin Widget but now by using below script, you can add related suggestions without using the third party services of Linkwithin.

Why this Widget is better than Linkwithin

When you use Linkwithin for showing related posts on your blog, the posts are not always relevant with one another. The suggested posts are chosen randomly, but the widget which you are going to get now lists and shows posts by labels, so the displayed posts are relevant to each other. 

Secondly, when you use Linkwithin for displaying related posts, it may slow down your blog, as the script is loaded remotely from the servers of Linkwithin. But after using this widget, the risk of your blog to be slow down eliminates as the script code is now hosted on robust servers of Google.

How to Add this Widget to Your Blogger Blog

To add this widget to your Blogger blog, follow below instructions.
1. Login to your blog’s dashboard
2. Go to template section and edit its HTML
3. Now press Ctrl+F, find and paste below code just above

    1. Hey Nagi, it is sad to hear that the code didn’t work for you. Kindly mail me your blog’s template (XML) at splendidblogger (at) gmail (dot) com. I’ll get it fixed for you.

    1. Sorry to hear it 🙁 The code unfortunately doesn’t work for some templates. I’m using the same script on my blog and it is working perfectly. Kindly send me your template (XML) at splendidblogger (at) gmail (dot) com. I’ll do it for you.

  1. Can’t find the codes on my blog div class=’post-footer-line post-footer-line-1′

    1. Hi Akuneme, I’ve re-written the instructions. You can look over the tutorial again. If you can’t find div class=’post-footer-line post-footer-line-1′, simply look for div class=’post-footer’

    1. Hi Hung Tran, the previous code wasn’t working for all templates. Now I’ve provided a newer code. Please read tutorial again and follow the instructions. The widget will hopefully work for you.

  2. Just thought I’d mention, I’m using the same script and it used to work before Blogger went and made changes recently and basically screwed everything up! The script might not be working for YOU personally for 2 reasons. 1) This script does NOT support external image files, only image files hosted at Picasa and 2) the other reason you might think it’s not working if you’re images are hosted at Picasa (default for Blogger), is you do not have at least 2-3 posts with the same label. It sucks this script does not work with externally hosted images anymore. 🙁
