Frequently Asked Question #422. What is the Related Entries feature?

The Related Entries feature allows you to display a module at the bottom of your entry which will show others a brief preview of up to 9 of your other entries.
To use the Recent Entries feature, just check the box next to 'Related entries' on the Update Journal page and you will be presented with several options.

Choose how many entries to display

You can select 3, 6, or 9 entries to include at the end of your entry. Selecting 3 or 6 will cause the entries to be displayed in a row, while 9 will display them in a 3x3 grid.

Select which entries to display

You have 3 different options for selecting which entries to display:
  1. Recent entries - This will display previews for the public entries you have posted to your journal most recently.

  2. Entries by URL - With this option, you can select any public entries on LiveJournal (whether they are posted by you or another LiveJournal user) by placing each entry URL into the form which appears.

  3. By tag - Your most recently posted public entries which use the same tag as you have selected will be displayed. If your entry has multiple tags, you will need to select which of those tags should be used for the purpose of displaying related entries.
