Before you click on Save template read the next step 

Now use CTRL+F again inside your html to find this line of code

<data:post.body/>

Note: this code appear 3 times in some blogger templates and some twice, why because

(1) The <data:post.body> is for you to display the related post widget below in mobile view. It only displayed once don't forget that

(2) For Web view, the <data:post.body> is displaying twice but you will have to work with the second one to make it display below post.

Or you can look for the tags below and display your related post.

Alternatively, you can find the second <div class='post-footer'> and place the ad code directly under it. You can also place it under <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>

Now paste the code below immediately after any of these lines (whichever you could find): 

<!-- Related Posts with Thumbnails Code Start--><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'><div id='related-posts'><font face='Arial' size='3'><b>Related Posts: </b></font><font color='#FFFFFF'><b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'><data:label.name/><b:if cond='data:label.isLast != &quot;true&quot;'>,</b:if><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'><script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/default/-/&quot; + data:label.name + &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=related_results_labels&amp;max-results=5&quot;' type='text/javascript'/></b:if></b:loop> </font><script type='text/javascript'> removeRelatedDuplicates(); printRelatedLabels();</script></div></b:if><!-- Related Posts with Thumbnails Code End-->

Click on Save Template.

Now, go ahead to view one of your blog posts. You should see the Related posts below it.

Note: If you did not add a label (category) to a post, you might not see the related posts below it.
