==> Fill in the widget form as required.
==> Select "Other" from the "Platform" drop down box, NOT Blogger.
==> Click "Get Widget"
==> Copy the code somewhere on your PC eg in a notepad
==> Copy the code below and paste it above the linkwithin code

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>

==> Copy the code below and paste it below the linkwithin code


So, your code should now be like this:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
