Blogger Help - How To Add Popular Posts Widget In Blogger

As every blogger wants to show thier popular blog posts (most commented) to their visitors, so here is a very easy method to add a widget containing 10 most commented posts (in order),  anywhere in your blog.

To add popular posts widget in new variations like showing widget without the word "comments" in the brackets, or showing only titles without comment numbers, see this new post:

Follow these steps :
1. Log in to Blogger
2. Go to "Layout" section
3. Click on "Add A Gadget" link
4. Select it as "HTML/JavaScript"
5. Now copy and paste these code lines :
<script type="text/javascript">
function pipeCallback(obj) {
document.write('<ol style="text-transform: capitalize;">');
var i;
for (i = 0; i < obj.count ; i++)
var href = "'" + obj.value.items[i].link + "'";
var item = "<li>" + "<a href=" + href + ">" + obj.value.items[i].title + "</a> </li>";
<script src="http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_render=json&_callback=pipeCallback&_id=1cf38ae68efbe859c4ba1ee239cec099&url=http%3A%2F%2FYOUR_DOMAIN_NAME_HERE_WITHOUT_http://&num=10" type="text/javascript"></script><a href="http://bloggerstop.net/2008/10/blogger-help-how-to-add-popular-posts.html" target="_blank"><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Popular Posts Widget</span></a>
Replace everything in the blue color with your blog's domain/url address, before pasting. Now drag the widget to anywhere you like in your blog's layout. Save your work, and show all your popular posts to your visitors.
You can adjust the number of posts to be shown, by changing num=X code.

NOTE: While adding your domain name/blog's url, remember NOT to add http://www.
So only write YOUR_WEBSITE.BLOGSPOT.COM or YOUR_WEBSITE.COM (custom domains)

You can see my popular posts widget in the sidebar.

Thanks for the above code. For some reason on my blog it is showing the blog post URLs and not the titles of the the posts referenced as yours do below. Any ideas? Thanks, Eric


See half way down right sidebar

Divya Sai said...

Hi Eric
I have checked the source code of your blog, and found it absolutely fine, there might be some code conflict with your blog's template....(the problem may be there in the css part of your template)

Drew Gneiser said...

I also am having the same problem as RI 360. If you could help me add this the correct way, I would be so grateful. Please help!

Love the widget. Thank you!
Is there a way to remove a popular
comment that you don't want listed?

bikes said...

If you are logged in to your blogger account, then in the same browser, open your blog in a new tab, and then go the specific post, in the comments at the bottom, you'll see a comment-deletion symbol(a dust-bin)m click on it to remove the specific comment, that's it !

polarfuchs said...

script works fine. but how can I delete the number of comments shown behind each title? they are not showing up in your widget...


Divya Sai said...

Hi Polarfuchs

Go to this page:

And use the third widget code.


Xandre Lima said...

This Script uses the Pipe tool from Yahoo? Isn't that something that might compromise the blog anyhow?

Divya Sai said...

Well if you don't want to use any external tools, then there's an alternate way too,
go to "Edit posts", manually copy the links of posts with maximum comments, and paste the links in a link-list widget, and this has to be done every time someone comments, and the order changes !

Blogger has not given us too many add-ons or plug-ins like WordPress, so external help is a must for blog*spot blogs !


Lunais said...

THANK you for this code!!! I have been searching for a good popular posts widget for a long time!!!

Divya Sai said...

There's a small mistake in the code u are using and the code you are using is not from this blog...so may be the mistake is already there in that tutorial...
Anyways before your blog address there should be a 'F'...
Right now your code is:

And it should be like this:

So simply add that 'F', that's it !

not working for me :(

Divya Sai said...

Use the new code from this page: popular posts widget for Blogger - New and Working

Astaga.com Lifestyle on The Net said...

hello can you make this widget simple script,so my blog fast to load

Divya Sai said...

Code cannot be changed, but you can do the same thing that I do in this blog.
I use another blog(for all my trial work). In that blog, I have placed the popular-posts widget of this blog (BloggerStop.Net)
and I regularly copy paste the links and details from that widget to this blog (in to a HTML/JavaScript) manually.
So finally in this blog, finally the widget is there but without any javascripts/yahoo pipes :)

Starhash said...

please tell me how did you give a different background for html code?

kumarjai said...

very helpful content...but i guess it will take sometime to work on my site...as it will store popular pages...nywz thnx

pennyponders said...

Though I am a newbie at blogging, a few of my posts have comments. However, the option #3 for without numbers, is not picking up any of the post titles. (I tried the other options as well.) I replaced the red code with punnyponderings.com. Am I doing something wrong?

Anika said...

Hi, thanks for the code, but I would like to show a pic from each post in the list, is that possible!

Thanks for your help, Anika
