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=””>{“pipe_id”:”1a6640e2a78b2c6e736f2220529daae5″,”_btype”:”list”,


“hideHeader”:”false”,”height”:”500″,”count”: 8 }</script>

<br />
<div class=”ycdr” style=”font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 9px;”>
<a href=”” target=”_blank” title=”Grab this widget”>Recent Posts Thumbnails</a> <a href=”” 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( 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.


  • 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!
