Hey Blogger friends, Do you want to list all or your most recent posts according to categories/labels? Well then, you’ve come to the right tutorial. I’ve seen people use a LinkList gadget to accomplish this. However this method requires them to MANUALLY add each post link to the gadget every time they publish a post with the specified label. Not good. But Today i have come up with another cool blogger hack. It’s about showing recent posts with/without thumbnail from any particular label/category in blogger. As you can see in my sidebar, I have listed recent posts from each category. So if you want to do same with your blogger blog, You just need to add official blogger widget. You can find some default gadgets in blogger “Add page element” section to show recent posts, but they don’t provide an option to show recent posts from a particular category. So in this post, I will guide on how to show the recent posts with thumbnail in blogger.
I was try looking for a way where by we could showcase articles from different categories or labels in our Blogger blogs. Using default popular post widget or recent post widget doesn’t full fills the purpose as they show generalized content. What if you wish to add a widget that would only show articles from specific tags? Any way around? So today, we would be first making up individual feeds for our blog categories of our choice and then would incorporate into the widget to showcase it in a beautiful manner. Stick around and you would love it for sure.
