Thank you very much for this tutorial. It really looks great and very easy to install, but I have tried it in my testing blog and has not worked. Any idea why or how can I fix it? I would really apreciate your help, as it has been quite a few years since Linkwithin dissapeared and I have not been able to add any widget for related posts that so helpful are.
Thanks very much for your attention and help.
There are some conditions to show the related posts:
1. Your current post has a label.
2. The label has at least more than 1 post.
If you check this post, you will see the related posts because it has the above conditions:
I recommend you to leave the title of the widget as blank to hide it from the sidebar.
WOW!!!!! I've just seen it!! How great!! You have illuminated my day. I'll try it on my original blog (cross my fingers but I'm sure it will work.)
Thank you very much for your patience and time. God bless you. :)))
Thanks a ton for the option I was looking for quite some time. Earlier I had to be content with random post suggestion.
In fact, I mixed this one with one which recommends a random posts under each post on the main screen of the blog, where-apparently labels to each post don't seem to be available. They are available only when you open a specific post.
But I encountered a road-block on mobile theme. It doesn't show recommendations. My additional title bar code tells me that the executable part of the code does get non-empty labels array. In fact, by using F12 on the browser, I would see multiple classes created for each label. So it seems the final executable line is where the problem is. But I could not dig deeper because of the huge array in the code and dynamic creation of all the HTML stuff. Can you help me?
The code is integrated in the blog https://ramataram.blogspot.com
This is because you are using a default mobile template of Blogger. Please switch that to the desktop template for mobile devices. https://sneeit.com/how-to-enable-responsive-feature-for-custom-blogger-template/
Thanks a lot for a lightening fast reply. Really grateful for that.
Unfortunately, I cannot enable desktop theme for mobile. In my case, it is too loaded. It has tabbed widgets and all.
While I was looking around for options, I found this alternative. Although, at the first look, it doesn't seem close to being as flexible (at least for me) as yours, it works for the mobile theme. Also, it works as a single standalone widget. Which means it doesn't require me to fiddle with the theme code. I thought you may want to have a look.
<> Not really. The code above provides output even on bloggers default mobile theme. You can check out https://ramataram.blogspot.com where I have integrated that code only in the mobile theme (continued to use yours for desktop version.)
In fact, I have some code inside mobile theme even before this widget. I already have google's 'Search' as well as 'Follow' buttons activated on mobile theme through custom code. I don't think switching to desktop theme is mandatory.
The major downside is that it's a complete black-box. Works with various handles, I could not comprehend the code at all. So zero customization possibility. Also, since it uses 'defer' attribute, the output is pasted at the end all the time. I could not print it in the designated widget/location.
>>But eventually, if you want to use custom codes,<< I don't think so. I have custom code for blog follow using Follow.It widget, which works perfectly fine on default mobile theme. In fact I have cross-referencing between two blogs through marquee running on the top for both the blogs.
The nigeljoy.me code (full ref. in previous reply) also works for default mobile theme. I have integrated it in the blog (ramataram.blogspot.com) and it works there.
Although the problem is that is more like a black-box. Works with various handle and all. I could not comprehend most of the code. So zero chance of customization.
1st: please make sure your post has at least one uploaded image (hosted by Blogger).
3rd: The widget will get posts from SMALLEST label which has lowest number of posts. So please make sure all labels have more than 3 posts to show full.
When I install this plugin/widget, it makes all of my Popular Post images on my sidebar be their huge, original sizes, instead of being thumbnails themselves. I can't seem to figure out why. Please help!
hi again, It didn't work but I changed the Number of posts will be loaded, 5 instead of 3 and I like it. With my horizontal pictures it looks great but with my vertical pictures The thumbnail cuts the image.
Hi. Thank you for your masterpiece.By the way I'd like to show this widget at mobile site.But I can't find good way. I've tried insert the code "mobile='yes'" to widget html. Then could you show me the suitable procedure? http://244room.blogspot.com/ and http://244room.blogspot.com/?m=1
Hello there, Thank you for the awesome templates and widgets. I'm currently using Fame Mage theme and I seem to have problems installing this widget — it doesn't appear in the blog. Does it work with Fame Mag? Could you help me, please? Thank you.
