Recent Posts Widget with Thumbnails for Blogger/Blogspot

A few days ago, I posted a tutorial on How to Add a Simple Recent Posts Widget that shows a list with the most recent posts if you would prefer a more minimalist look. In this post, you will see a different way of displaying the Recent Posts on Blogger - this is specially for those who want to show more info like the recent posts excerpt / summary and the posts thumbnails.

To add this gadget is very easy, just follow these steps below:

How to Add the Recent Posts Widget to Blogger

Step 1. From your Blogger Dashboard, go to Layout > click on Add a Gadget link


Step 2. From the pop-up window, scroll down and choose HTML/JavaScript


Step 3. Inside the empty box, add the following code:
<div class="eggTray">
<script src="http://helplogger.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/listbadge.js">{"pipe_id":"1a6640e2a78b2c6e736f2220529daae5","_btype":"list",
"pipe_params":{"URL":"YOUR-BLOG/feeds/posts/default"},
"hideHeader":"false","height":"500","count": 8 }</script>
<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, .ycdr a {color:#999999;}
.widget .popular-posts ul {padding-left:0;}
</style>
Note: 
- Replace YOUR-BLOG with the url of your site/blog (ex: http://helplogger.blogspot.com) and pay attention to have no forward slash symbol "/" at the end of the 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 that you want to appear
- if you want only the posts titles, change true to none and "0" from padding-top:0px with 10

Step 4. Save your widget. And you're done!
