How to list recent post titles by label


How to list recent post titles by label

list recent post

Once added, the list will update itself automatically. The widget takes your blog’s label-specific feed, in JSON format and turn it into a list using Javascript. It other words it does the listing for you.
No more slow and tedious manual updating and rearranging. Sounds good? Here we go:

1. Installing the first list

  1. Go to Layout Design>>Page Elements.
  2. Click Add A Gadget.
  3. In Add A Gadget window, select HTML/Javascript .
  4. Enter a label as the title of your widget.
  5. Copy the code below and paste it inside the content box.
  6. Click Save.

<!-- Recent Posts by Label Start --> <!-- code by http://dailybloggiingtips.blogspot.com/ --> <script type="text/javascript"> function recentpostslist(json) { document.write('<ul>'); for (var i = 0; i < json.feed.entry.length; i++) { for (var j = 0; j < json.feed.entry[i].link.length; j++) { if (json.feed.entry[i].link[j].rel == 'alternate') { break; } } var entryUrl = "'" + json.feed.entry[i].link[j].href + "'";//bs var entryTitle = json.feed.entry[i].title.$t; var item = "<li>" + "<a href="+ entryUrl + '" target="_blank">' + entryTitle + "</a> </li>"; document.write(item); } document.write('</ul>'); } </script> <script src="YOUR_BLOG_URL/feeds/posts/summary/-/YOUR_LABEL?max-results=SHOW_HOW_MANY&alt=json-in-script&callback=recentpostslist"></script> <span style="font-size: 80%; float:right;">Get this? <a href="http://dailybloggiingtips.blogspot.com/">widget</a></span> <!-- Recent Posts by http://dailybloggiingtips.blogspot.com/ Label End -->



  • Replace YOUR_LABEL  with the label. Labels are case sensitive, make sure you get it right. 
  • Replace the value of SHOW_HOW_MANY  with the number of posts you want to display. To show all posts, use 500 (I believe 500 is the maximum. If you have more than 500 posts under a certain label, do leave a comment, we’ll work something out). 
  • The titles are bulleted due the use of ordered list <ul>. If you want them numbered instead, just replace ul(in line 5 and 18) with ol.
