Top 5 Blogger Popular Post customisations


Here are my top 5 Blogger Popular Post customisations.

The popular posts widget highlights what other people think are your most popular and maybe your best posts. Blogger effectively stores hits on these pages and orders the returned posts in ascending order. The original Blogger widget is simple but if you want to highlight these posts and get further reads  then try some of these customisations ..

All rely on inserting the scripts below above the b:skin reference . i.e in admin go to Template → Edit HTML. Search for the tag ]]></b:skin> by pressing Ctrl + F. Add the below given code just above ]]></b:skin>
