#related-posts .widget h2, #related-posts h2{

font-weight: normal;

margin-bottom: 0.75em;

</style>

<script type='text/javascript'>

var relatedpoststitle=&quot;Related Posts&quot;;

</script>

<script src=' http://onenaijablog.googlecode.com/files/related post widget.js' type='text/javascript'/>

<!--Remove--></b:if>

<!--Related Posts Scripts and Styles End-->

Have you done that? We have done the first part of the show, now let’s move to the second part which is the main part.

Still on the “Edit HTML”. Now locate the below code

<div class='post-footer'>

Have you seen it? Now right above it paste the below code

<!-- Related Posts Code Start-->

<!--Remove-->

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>

<div id='related-posts'> <b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'> <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=6&quot;' type='text/javascript'/></b:if></b:loop>

<script type='text/javascript'> var maxresults=5; removeRelatedDuplicates(); printRelatedLabels(&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;); </script> </div> <!--Remove--></b:if> <!-- Related Posts Code End-->

Now save your work and voila! Your related post will start showing. Tell me how simple is that?

    Hi there, thanks for this post. Is there a way to have related post show for only 1 label? For example, I have a label titled Videos. I only want related posts for that label. How could I do that with the above code?

    Thanks for the help.

      Hello Wasee,
      There are two type, one with thumbnail and the simple one which is this. So if this one is too simple you can use the one with thumbnail.
