How To Add Related Posts In Squarespace?


First, go to the blog post you want to add the related posts to. Then go all the way to the bottom of the post, to add the related posts at the end of the blog post.

 

Choose the spot were you want the related posts to be located. If you hover at the side of the blog post, you will see this point with a line going across the page.

 

 

Click onto the circle, then the content blocks will pop up. (See Image Below). You are gonna go the summary section, and choose the carousel block.

 

 

Once you have choose the carousel summary, you will see the "content" tab, and show the blog category. 

 

 

Then you are gonna click onto the "layout" tab. (See Image Below) Then Change the Header Text from  "Featured" to "Related Blog Posts". Also change the Aspect Ratio to from "Standard" to "Auto". This makes Squarespace adjust the summary block to whatever size your thumbnail photo is. 

 

 

In the "Display" tag, you can show how many number of items, I usually go with 6 items. Then you will only select "Show Thumbnail", this way the title and excerpt of your blog post has been removed. You are going to set the Primary Metadata to none and Secondary Metadata to none. 

 

 

Just click save and you are have created your own related posts at the end of your blog post. Now you know how to add related blog posts at the end of your blog. Happy Creating.
