Make Related Post For Your Blog

How to create a related post has been much discussed on various blogs and the web, here i post my own back so do not forget and hopefully also be useful to readers who are just getting started blogging and blog design.

1. After logging into your blog, go to 'Layout-->Edit HTML'

2. Give check the box 'Expand Widgets Templates'

3. Further search this code <data:post.body>, how to easily find the press the ctrl and F at the same time then enter what you want to search.

4. After the meet, put the following script code below <data:post.body>.

Copy and paste the following code:

<b:if cond="data:blog.pageType == "item">
<div class="similiar">
<div class="widget-content">
<h3>Related Post</h3>
<div id="data2007">
<script type="text/javascript">
var homeUrl3 = &quot;<data:blog.homepageUrl/>&quot;;
var maxNumberOfPostsPerLabel = 4;
var maxNumberOfLabels = 10;
maxNumberOfPostsPerLabel = 100;
maxNumberOfLabels = 3;
function listEntries10(json) {
var ul = document.createElement(&#39;ul&#39;);
var maxPosts = (json.feed.entry.length <= maxNumberOfPostsPerLabel) ?
json.feed.entry.length : maxNumberOfPostsPerLabel;
for (var i = 0; i < maxPosts; i++) {
var entry = json.feed.entry[i];
var alturl;
for (var k = 0; k < entry.link.length; k++) {
if (entry.link[k].rel == &#39;alternate&#39;) {
alturl = entry.link[k].href;
break;
}
}
var li = document.createElement(&#39;li&#39;);
var a = document.createElement(&#39;a&#39;);
a.href = alturl;
if(a.href!=location.href) {
var txt = document.createTextNode(entry.title.$t);
a.appendChild(txt);
li.appendChild(a);
ul.appendChild(li);
}
}
for (var l = 0; l < json.feed.link.length; l++) {
if (json.feed.link[l].rel == &#39;alternate&#39;) {
var raw = json.feed.link[l].href;
var label = raw.substr(homeUrl3.length+13);
var k;
for (k=0; k<20; k++) label = label.replace(&quot;%20&quot;, &quot; &quot;);
var txt = document.createTextNode(label);
var h = document.createElement(&#39;b&#39;);
h.appendChild(txt);
var div1 = document.createElement(&#39;div&#39;);
div1.appendChild(h);
div1.appendChild(ul);
document.getElementById(&#39;data2007&#39;).appendChild(div1);
}
}
}
function search10(query, label) {
var script = document.createElement(&#39;script&#39;);
script.setAttribute(&#39;src&#39;, query + &#39;feeds/posts/default/-/&#39;
+ label +
&#39;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=listEntries10&#39;);
script.setAttribute(&#39;type&#39;, &#39;text/javascript&#39;);
document.documentElement.firstChild.appendChild(script);
}
var labelArray = new Array();
var numLabel = 0;
<b:loop values='data:posts' var='post'>
<b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
textLabel = &quot;<data:label.name/>&quot;;
var test = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < labelArray.length; i++)
if (labelArray[i] == textLabel) test = 1;
if (test == 0) {
labelArray.push(textLabel);
var maxLabels = (labelArray.length <= maxNumberOfLabels) ?
labelArray.length : maxNumberOfLabels;
if (numLabel < maxLabels) {
search10(homeUrl3, textLabel);
numLabel++;
}
}
</b:loop>
</b:loop>
</script>
</div>
</div>
</b:if>


5. Finish and save your template.
