</style>
<script src='http://sites.google.com/site/scriptsfamily/codes/Related_Post_Widget.js' type='text/javascript'/>

</head>

Step. 6- Final Step for adding Code. Search tag in blue color   in your template, search method is same as given above step-4 ( ctrl+f). It may be different in different template so search one by one until you find correct tag.

<p><data:post.body/></p>
or
<div class='post-body>
or
data:post.body/
or
class='post-body

Step. 7- Now add the following code just below the above code you search in step-6 like shown below, remember i include the example with each code as well for ease do not confuse code in Black and tag in blue.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<div id="related-posts">
<font face='Arial' size='3'><b>Related Posts : </b></font><font color='#FFFFFF'><b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'><data:label.name/><b:if cond='data:label.isLast != &quot;true&quot;'>,</b:if><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/default/-/&quot; data:label.name &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=related_results_labels&amp;max-results=10&quot;' type='text/javascript'/></b:if></b:loop> </font>
<script type='text/javascript'> removeRelatedDuplicates(); printRelatedLabels();
</script>
</div></b:if>


Step. 8- Save your template and view your any post. Remember Related post will not shown if you are view through Label url, it will appear only with post url.

If related Post appear but post not shown it means you have not any post labeled with same label more than one or two. Go in post edit section and label more than two post with same label.Remember as i told earlier at starting to not make spam labels, label should be related to posts in anyway.

Few More Tricks:

> In default related post set to 10 but if you want to increase or decrease them change the number 10 with any number you want in code max-results=10 . Advise do not exceed the no.10.

> If you have any problem to show widget at appropriate position the try to add in step-7 just below this tag

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'/>
</div>

Code here......

Note: Some templates may not have this tag.

Then try to implement some where below any of these line given below.

<div class='post-header-line-1'/>
or
<div class='post-header-line-2'/>
or
<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>
or
<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-2'>


Note: Remember that code will goes after the closing end tag related to start tag, in case of above codes it is </div> because it is end tag of starting tag <div>

That all
