Improvements made include:
Current version 6.0
The first step is to locate whether or not you have jquery installed on your machine. It should be located at the top part of your tumblr template within the <head> tags or at the bottom of your template between the <footer> tags - if you have them. It should look something like this:
If you can't see the jquery code then you need to add it. It is preferable to use the latest version of jquery. Point to it like this by copy/pasting the code here.
It should go between the <head> tags of your template like this
Version 6 only You will need to add the css link within the head of your site template (like above) Copy and paste this code
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://domclaxton.com/tumblrblog/minimal_v2_min.css" media="screen" />
Version 6 (latest version):
Version 5 (archived version-not recommended to use now):
For example, I have put the code in my theme like this:
IMPORTANT - You must make sure you point to your site.
There are a number of options with which to customise the look and feel. Currently there is only one layout type controlled by one css file but I plan to add more in the future. You can however control the size, colour, text size and number of related posts to show - the full list is below. I also included an 'exclude tag' parameter which allows you to specify tags that you don't want the script to search for. This is useful if you have used certain tags for certain navigational links. For example, on my site a I tag all my posts with one of four special 'super' tags which I use to create pseudo-categories from.
New for version 6 (tumblr_related_posts_v6_min.js)
Please note: You must include the new css - see Step 2 above
I hope you find this widget useful,
