>Related Posts with Thumbnails for Blogger – New Version by BloggerWidgets

0 comment

>Aneesh of Blogger Widgets has developed a new “Related Posts” script for Blogger which displays thumbnails of images in addition to linked post titles:

In appearance, this Blogger “add-on” is similar to the LinkWithin script. Each section is highlighted in a complementary colour when the mouse hovers over it, and the entire section is clickable, leading to the URL of the “related post” displayed.


Unlike the LinkWithin script, this add-on links directly to the post page it references, and relies on Blogger’s label feeds to display posts of true relevance to the post on which it appears.

Aneesh’s script seems relatively easy to install. Furthermore, almost all aspects of this add-on may be customized including the style (by editing the CSS), the number of related posts to be displayed and the title of the section in which it is contained.

The image thumbnails displayed for each related post are generated from the thumbnail associated with the relevant post page. Therefore, only images which you have uploaded to each blog post (rather than referencing by URL) will be displayed. In instances where no image appears in the related post, a generic “No-Image” replacement will be be displayed instead.

Overall, I am very impressed by Aneesh’s related posts script – it is neat, easily customizable and as the JavaScript is hosted by Google Code this loads very quickly.
