How to fix Blogger Related Post or Link Within widget not appearing on mobile devices

LinkWithin / Related Post Widget Not Appearing On Mobile?
In my previous post we saw how to add related posts section to our Blogger blog by using the LinkWithin service. See here: How to add "you may also like" or related posts widget for blogger? 
 
In this post we will see how to enable the related posts widget on mobile devices. Yes, please note that by default, some Blogger widgets do not appear on mobile devices.
Likewise, LinkWithin widget that we just added will not appear on mobile devices.

Like I have shown in the mobile screenshot on the right, the LinkWithin or Related Post widget is expected in the area marked in red but it is not appearing on mobile devices.

Watch this tutorial video to enable Blogger Related Posts or Link Within Widget on mobile devices
 


If you would like to show related posts on mobile devices also, then do the following changes in your Blogger HTML template.

  • Login to Blogger
  • DASHBOARD >TEMPLATE >EDIT HTML
  • Click anywhere and press CTRL+F to enable the search bar
  • Type the name of the widget in the search bar. In my case, I named the widget "You may also like". If you are not sure what you need the LinkWithin widget, go to DASHBOARD > LAYOUT page and check.

Blogger layout widget title name
  • The LinkWithin widget code looks like this:
<b:widget id='HTML7' locked='false' title='You may also like:' type='HTML' visible='true'>
<b:includable id='main'><data:content/></b:includable>
</b:widget>

Add mobile='yes' to the above code. Now it should looks like this:
<b:widget id='HTML7' locked='false' mobile='yes' title='You may also like:' type='HTML' visible='true'>
<b:includable id='main'><data:content/></b:includable>
</b:widget>
Now the related posts widgets should also appear on mobile devices.
