How to Use Nrelate Related Content Widget on Blogger (Part 2)

Customizing your Nrelate Related Content Widget.

Earlier, we wrote about how to install the Nrelate Widget on Blogger, in this part, we shall deliberate on how you can customize your Nrelate Widget.

The Nrelate widget allows you to customize the way your related contents are being rendered. You can customize features such as:
 – Thumbnails: You can choose whether to display your related contents as thumbnails or texts. This feature also allows you to re-size the thumbnail of each related content.
 – Default Image: In a case where no image is found for a particular post, Nrelate automatically pick a random thumbnail image from their database for the post. This feature allows you to set a custom default thumbnail image for your related contents (only visible when no image is available for the blog post).
 – Styles: Nrelate allows you to change the style of your widget. You have six styles to choose from, namely:

#1 Default

This style, as the name implies, is the default style for Nrelate widget. Was developed  as a simple way to place nrelate content on any site. 
With cute borders and hover effects combined with genuine simplicity, so that the focus of your readers remains on your site’s content.

Some of the outstanding features of this style include: Mouse-over effects, Border, Left aligned text, Text over the thumbnail, Semi-transparent text background.

#3 Bloginity.com

This style is a borderless-centered style based upon the custom version developed at Bloginity.com.

For huge fans of LinkWithin, this style maintains all the features from LinkWithin related content widget. Leaving all your text contents in uppercase, simulating hover effects and stylized thumbnail dividing line.
