Recent Posts Widget with Thumbnails for Blogger/Blogspot

The past days i've shared a tutorial on how you can add a Simple Recent Posts Widget, but today we will learn how to add a recent posts widget which comes along with posts thumbnails and snippets too.

recent posts, blogger widgets

Here is how you can add a Recent Posts widget/gadget with thumbnails to your Blogger (blogspot or custom domain) blog. It's pretty simple. Follow the steps below:

1. Go To Blogger > Design > Page Elements
2. Click on "Add a Gadget" link
3. From the pop-up window, choose HTML/JavaScript
4. Paste the following code:

<div class="eggTray">
<script src="http://helplogger.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/listbadge.js">{"pipe_id":"1a6640e2a78b2c6e736f2220529daae5","_btype":"list",
"hideHeader":"false","height":"500","count": 8 }</script>
<div style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 9px;" class="ycdr"><a href="http://helplogger.blogspot.com/2012/05/recent-posts-widget-with-thumbnails-for.html" target="_blank" title="Grab this widget">Recent Posts Thumbnails</a> <a href="http://helplogger.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">Blogger Widget</a></div><noscript>Your browser does not support JavaScript!</noscript></div>
<style type=text/css>
.eggTray {margin:10px 0px;padding:0px;}
.ybr li  {border-bottom:0px #cccccc dotted; padding:0px 0px 10px 0px!important;}
.pipesTitle {padding-top:0px;}
.pipesDescription {display:true;}
.ycdr {background:transparent url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-oxTuqVj1ziA/T6P6wtxqsgI/AAAAAAAACBE/wWR0bb2gfuE/s1600/logo.png) 0px 0px no-repeat; padding: 1px 0px 0px 19px; height:14px; margin: 4px 0px 0px 0px;line-height:14px;}
.ycdr, .ycdr a {color:#999999;}
.widget .popular-posts ul {padding-left:0;}

Change YOUR-BLOG/SITE-URL with the url address of your site/blog (ex: http://helplogger.blogspot.com) and be careful to have no forward slash symbol "/" at the end of your url

  • To disable the scroll bar, remove the number 500
  • By default, this widget is set to display a maximum of 8 recent posts. To change this number, replace the number 8 with the number of posts desired
  • if you want only the posts titles to appear, change true to none and "0" from padding-top:0px with 10

5. Save your widget. And that's it!
