How to add ‘Related Posts’ to your site with “LinkWithin”

image LinkWithin is an amazing widget that you want to put in your site, as it links three related posts from your archive under each post and has the cool ‘Photo Thumbnails’ feature!

 

I just included this feature on my blog a while ago (see LockedUpMind Blog Updates) and its great!

Tip for Blogger Users:

Layout > Edit HTML > Click on ‘Expand Widget Templates’ check box

after you’ve done that use find (Ctrl + F) and type data:post.body and you will be directed on the <p><data:post.body/></p> tag
