Awesome Horizontal Popular Posts Widget For Bloggers Blog
popular posts

After releasing my first Horizontal Popular Posts widget I got more than thousands of hits on that post. So I have made plan to develop this widget for my readers. Finally I have redesign it that looks very charming.  This is the second version of Horizontal Popular Posts Widget. But it has some limitations that this widget is  best fit for displaying 5 posts max. On the other hand if you want to show Posts summary then all the posts summary won't be same on height. However you can show Posts summary. And I have set a code for not   to display Posts Title. So it's better to just showing Image thumbnail which you can show this widget as a featured posts or Most viewed posts. Don't worry I will try with my best to work on that, I know many blogger want to use this 'Horizontal popular Post' widget because it doesn't occupy extra space from your templates. So let's proceed to the tutorial.

First of all add a Popular Posts widget from Layout Page and place the widget below header or above footer. If you don't have any widget container then you can create by using a simple trick.

hot posts

Step 1 Log in to your Blogger account and Go to your Blogger Dashboard

Step 2 Go to your Layout tab.

Step 3 Click on "Add a Gadget" then select "Popular Posts" Widget.


  • Uncheck snippet. Because we will display only popular Post's image Thumbnail. 
  • You can display between 1 to 5 posts. So choose 5 posts Max.

Most viewed posts

Step 4 Now Save the  "Popular Posts" Gadget.

Step 5 Click on -> Template -> Edit HTML

Step 6 Now Find this code ]]></b:skin>  by pressing  Ctrl + F

Step 7 Paste the below code  Before/above ]]></b:skin> 

/*--Horizontal Popular Post By*/
#PopularPosts1 li{display:inline;list-style:none;width:155px;float:left;text-align:left;padding:0 0 0 5px}
#PopularPosts1 .item-title{display:none;list-style:none;float:left;text-align:left;width:100px;font-size:.80em}

height: 80px;
padding: 5px;
width: 115px;
.item-thumbnail img:hover{
border:0px solid #111111;

Step 8 Now Save the widget.
