How to customize the related messages Widget for Blogger?

relatedHeading: "& lt; h4 & gt; & span; Related posts & lt; / span & gt; & lt; / h4 & gt;"

To change the number of posts to show, change the & # 39; 4 & # 39; value of this rule:

relatedPosts: 4

Note: You may need to change the percentages in the CSS styles above to ensure that messages fit into the related container. Follow the values ​​in red and play with them until you get the best results.

Change the value & # 39; 4 & # 39; from:

to change the style of the related widget with posts
relatedStyle: 4

Modifying the corresponding post Thumbnail size and style

By default, thumbnails are adjusted and automatically cropped to 300px wide and 200px high. To change the width and height of the thumbnails, change the values ​​& # 39; 300 & # 39; and & # 39; 200 & # 39; from:

thumbnailSize: "w 300 -h 200 -p-nu"
standardThumb: "https://4.bp.blogspot.com/ -BLiit18tHXA / V9gCeNNCXzI / AAAAAAAALt8 / SF8SUhGI1m8QuoHklq24MKiIEwKHIqwBACLcB / w 300 -h 200 -c / non-thumb.png "

Note: & # 39; w & # 39; comes from the width, & # 39; h & # 39; comes from the height. To make the thumbnails square, change the value & # 39; h & # 39; (height) and make it equal to the & # 39; w & # 39; (width) value. A higher value results in more images with a high resolution.

If you want thumbnails to have rounded corners, change & # 39; false & # 39; in & # 39; true & # 39 ;:

roundThumbs: false

Adjusting related titles and fragments

To shorten the message title, change car with the number of characters to show:

titleLength: " car "

To add more characters to the fragments, change the "45" value:

snippetLength: 45

To center text (title and summary), change & # 39; false & # 39; in & # 39; true & # 39 ;:

centerText: false

To open links in a new tab when visitors click on a related post, change & # 39; false & # 39; in & # 39; true & # 39 ;:

open NewTab: false

When you are done with the settings, click the & # 39; Save template & # 39; and now you can view the related message widget live on your Blogger blog.
