    1. The codes above are for the related post widget not the ''Other people also read''

      Delete
  2. The related post widget is very important to every blog as it act as dessert after a main meal course. It always present posts that are categorized under the same label name (Related posts) and hence gives blog readers more similar thing that they might also like, or just to tease them up with other posts.

    Thank you for taking out time to show a step by step process of adding a related post to ones pages.

    1. Hello Edwin!

      Sure related post widgets are really a great tool to boost a blog's presence through post linkage. As without them, older posts will all seem like an old deserted building.

      Thank you for stopping by. It was great having you here.
