321 Popular Posts (Most Commented) Widget for Blogger Blogs
April 13, 2008 /

Here is a Popular Posts widget for Blogger blogs which displays a list of the ten most commented posts. This works by parsing the last 5000 comments which have been made on your blog; the post titles and URL are extracted and displayed in descending order of popularity, followed by the comment count of this post.

Over the past few weeks, many of you have expressed an interest in such a widget, and I hope this will become a useful widget for you all.

You can see this widget in action and install this in your own Blogger powered blog using the widget installer below.

Please note: if you are reading this post in your feed reader, you will not see the widget installer and will need to visit this page in your browser instead!

Widget by Blogger Buster
On the right you can see an example of the Popular Posts widget, which displays the ten most popular posts from Blogger Buster (including their comment count). This widget uses Yahoo! Pipes to parse and display each item in the list using the last 5000 comments which have been made on this blog.

Update: I've just changed the mark-up of the widget to capitalize only the first letter of each word in the post titles (thanks to Angel's great advice!)

Installing this widget in your own Blogger blog is easy:

  1. Change the title of the widget if you prefer.
  2. Add your blog's URL in the input box (don't include the http:// part as this is already inserted by the script)
  3. Click the "Customize" button to make the changes take effect, then click on the "Add to Blog" button.

At this point, you will be taken to the widget installer page where you can choose which of your Blogger powered blogs you would like to install this widget.

A bit more information about this widget

I have developed this widget using Yahoo Pipes, where I added variables to retrieve 5000 comments and extracted the titles and URLs using Regex (regular expressions).

If you would like to take a look at how this works, feel free to hop over to the Blogger Popular Posts/Most Commented Pipe page where you can also make a copy and edit to your own specifications.

Using This Widget in a Blogger Feed Widget (Alternative Installation)

If you would prefer to use Blogger's Feed Widget instead (which loads the items slightly faster), you modify the following feed link to include your own URL (eg: yourblog.blogspot.com or www.yourblog.com) and add insert this as the "Feed URL" on the widget configuration page:

http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=1cf38ae68efbe859c4ba1ee239cec099&_render=rss&num=50&url=http%3A%2F%2FYOUR-URL-HERE

However, using Blogger's Feed Widget will limit the number of items you can display to 5 instead of 10, and you will not be able to number your items.

Troubleshooting the Popular Posts Widget

If you have installed this widget in your blog but the post links are not displayed, this may be due to one of the following issues:

You have added your blog's URL incorrectly

Double check your blog's URL when you add this to the widget installer, and remember not to add the "http://" part as this is already added by the script.

Your Comment Feed is Set to None

To remedy this, go to Settings>Site Feed in your Blogger dashboard and click on the "Advanced Settings link. Here you will see the option to switch your comments feed to Full or Short instead of None.

I have tested this widget extensively for both Blog*Spot and custom domain URLs in Internet Explorer and Firefox. So far, I haven't come across any problems, though if you do have a problem with this widget which I've not covered here, please do leave a comment or get in touch and I will try to help.

If you have found this widget to be a useful addition to your Blogger blog, please consider subscribing to the Blogger Buster feed and be updated of new articles about Blogger as they are posted.

  1. Thanks. I've been looking for something like this -- and the link to creating a three column template, which shows up as one of your most popular posts.

  2. Amanda, this did not work for me. I tried it several times on both my main blog and test blog. I only get the widget title, but nothing else. Also, it totally wipes out everything else on my sidebar! I can't move any of my page elements either. I have my comment feed set to full and I did type my URL in correctly. :(

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

  3. Amanda, I would love to use this on my blog but I hate the comment's system therefore I removed it from my template. Is there anyway in which this could work without the comments?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Thank you Amanda!
    This widget is very useful.
    I about it on my blog, with your permission.
    Perdon by my English, Spanish and I use the Google translator.
    Congratulations on your work!

  5. Great widget, although it would be great to change from the all-caps view.

    AideRSS also has a popular posts widget that I just installed that rates posts (via a blog's feed) on views, comments, and saves.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Interesting, but the posts for many which are the most popular by comments are the memes like Saturday Photo Hunt and Wordless Wednesday, not the posts that many have thought most about and are actually worth reading.

  9. I really would like to use this, but I can't. I blog in Finnish, but this widget doesn't know Ä's and Ö's. Is there any way to make it work with A with dots and O with dots?

  10. Hi Amanda,

    I think I have found a bug.

    On my test blog. I quickly created five posts and published them one by one. After that I installed the popular posts widget, it shows a single deleted post of last month in the widget as popular post. That deleted post of last month had one comment that time. If you want to have a look I can send you details in mail or give can you privileged user account on my test blog on which I tested it.

    Regards
    Rajeev Edmonds

  11. For Kathy: I'm glad to know this has been useful for you (in more ways than one!). Using these results, I'm going to revise the popular posts in my sidebar soon so I can keep up to date of the posts which have proved most popular here.

    Thanks for stopping by :)

    For Stickygooeycreamychewy: I'm sorry this hasn't worked for you so far :( I did check your comments feed and this is working just fine, so I'll go and debug this for you on the Pipes page and will let you know if there's anything which may need altering as soon as I can.

    For Anonymous: Unfortunately this particular widget only works using your comments feed, but there are other third party solutions which provide a similar widget based on page views (Spotplex and Affiliatebrand are the ones I have looked at so far, though Chris Foley has mentioned AideRSS in his comment above).

    I hope to research these more and will post about these alternatives in the future.

    Hope this may be useful to you!

    ReplyDelete
  12. For Rosa: Thank you for commenting here! Your translation is fine, I'm glad to know you have found this to be a useful widget :)

    For Chris Foley: Thank you for letting me know about AideRSS! I haven't heard of this one before, but am interested to test this and see how it works.

    As regards the capitalization in the posts titles... I had a problem that the titles would all be in small case without the added styling to make them uppercase (and am still testing for a method of making the first letters of words only in uppercase!). If you would prefer small-case to upper-case titles, let me know and I can email you the code to modify this in the widget.

    For Colin Campbell: It may be possible to filter certain posts which contain a particular word or string of words. I haven't tested this yet, but if you think this may be useful I could look into this possibility for you?

    ReplyDelete
  13. For Tknmurphy: Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad to know this was useful for you :)

    For Yo Misma: Your blogs are already beautifully designed! But I'm still glad you have found this widget useful :)

    For Xue: I'm sorry to hear this has been problematic for you. This may be due to the regex commands used in the scripts for the widget.

    Does the widget display or is the problem due to the post titles? I will try to find out if special characters can be parsed properly in the script and see how this can best be implemented.

    Thank you for letting me know about this :)

    For Rajeev: Thank you for letting me know about this glitch. Although I had tested in all my Blogger blogs, I hadn't noticed any such problems with deleted posts.

    If you can send me the details of your blog and the deleted post by email, I can debug this using the Pipes interface to see how this problem can best be solved.

    Best wishes and thank you :)

    Amanda

    Amanda, have you tried text-transform:capitalize? That could work. ;)

  15. Angel, you're fabulous :))

    That works a treat (see the changes above). I'll go and edit the script for the widget for this change to take effect.

    Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Alas! I love this stuff, but how about those like me who us:
    http://www.intensedebate.com/

    For commenting system. Is there any support then?

    Thx

    ReplyDelete
  17. Glad I could help you once in a while (and not always the other way around). Heehee. :)

    I hope you can figure out a way for scattered people like myself who use Blogger+Intense Debate comments (eek... combined!). :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great Work! But does it reward the top commentators by showing a 'do follow' link back to their blogs like the Wordpress plugin?

    If not can this be done?

    ReplyDelete
  19. TO AMANDA,

    The problem is in the post titles. When it should be for example "Pääsykoe" in the widget it says "Psykoe".

    It would be really great if that can be fixed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. For Open Door to Everyone and Angel: It may be possible to do a mash-up of Blogger and Intense Debate comments for this widget (providing Intense Debate also published a feed of comments which can be accessed remotely!).

    I'll need to do a bit of experimentation to know for sure about this. Will let you both know as soon as I've had the time to give this one a go :)

    For Vin: As yet I haven't been able to find a way to link the Top Commentators links to the commenter's own blogs. The problem is because the links to the commentators blogs are not published in the comment feed.

    I have had ideas about possible methods to accomplish this, but so far these have come up short. I think the only method would be to somehow parse the actual posts and extract the URL of the commenters. Even in this scenario, many people still use their Blogger login which generates a link to their Blogger profile rather than their blog.

    But since Angel and Open Door to Everyone have mentioned Intense Debate, I'm beginning to wonder if using this comments system combined with the Top Commenters script may provide a solution... I'll take a look at this over the weekend!

    Thanks for stopping by Vin :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wonderful to see that you are goin to get your hand dirty with Intense Debate!

    Thx

    ReplyDelete
  22. For Defensive Pro: It doesn't seem as difficult as I'd originally thought to parse the Intense Debate comment feeds, so hopefully I can get something working later this week.

    I really ought to post how to add and use Intense Debate with Blogger blogs first though :)

    Thank you for your comment!

    ReplyDelete
  23. muchas gracias :D esto me ayuda bastante muy interesante :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. Amanda this isn't working for me either. My post comment feed is on and set to "long". I double checked the URL I'm entering, its correct. However when I install the widget all that shows is your made by tag at the end. No post titles at all.

    Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi AMANDA,

    The problem is in the post titles.

    No post chinese title was showed ,see "热门文章" in my blog.

    thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Amanda,

    Nice widget. I have tried and it works fine. But I am just wondering, is it possible to remove/exclude the 'number of comments' text.

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  27. amanda, thank you very much

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Amanda, thanks a bunch for the useful widget. I have a problem, that I deleted a posting (ranks number 2), but the comments seem remain there. I put back the article actually, but didn't put back the comments.
    Is there a way to filter a posting? Cheers...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks for this, using it and loving it... except I noticed that the list of popular posts is numbered.

    Do you know how I could edit the css to remove the numbering system?

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. hi amanda...i hav a problem..i deleted a post last month..but it is til showing up in the popular posts..nd one more prob is that the title of one of my post is not displayed but instead the startin sentence is displayed...pls check it in my blog

  31. I'd love to use something like this, but there are some characters in my language that does not work with this: umlauts with a and o mostly.

    I tried this and it also froze Page Elements for some reason, I wasn't able to move the box or any other box for that matter.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is great. I'm trying it out on a private blog linked to my public feed for a few days. The one thing I've never liked about such widgets is that they don't reflect the page title properly - the word "the" is never included which makes some of my titles read oddly. I, too, would also like an option to remove the numbers down the left margin.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks so much! I've been looking for something like this, and this is fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow, this is fantastic! Thank you for sharing. I could never have figured something like this out on my own. :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hello again! I have a problem with this widget. Maybe you can fix it!?
    I tell you:
    Blogger sometimes gives me strange urls to my posts because they have similar names, or spanish characters in the title. Then, the widget takes the url to make the title on the list of most commented posts. Is it possible to take the post title as I can read it usually??
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi, I have seen you blog n I like it, that's inspire me for my new blogger, thx

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi! This widget is a great idea and I've been looking for a thing like this, but I too cannot use it because it doesn't support umlauts. My language is just full of them, and so are my titles. Can't stand that Pääsykoe -> Psykoe -problem Xue described.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi !
    I was trying this widget, but take look my blog, I see the permalink value as each items, not post title. How to clear this problem ?

    ReplyDelete
  41. When I first tested out the popular posts widget I had a problem with it. So, I looked at the widget options and found that it still said "yourblogname" etc instead of actually pointing to the right place. After I fixed that, it worked fine for me.

    I think that's a problem with Blogger's import and not with the widget itself.

    BTW, the widget is really cool. Is there a way to have it base the popularity on something other that comments (as my blog is still new and doesn't have any yet)?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hola Amanda, espero entiendas castellano, ya que soy un tonto que no sabe nada de ingles, resulta que en mi blog, no muestra el nombre del post, sí no el URL.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi Amanda, another great idea! I am having a problem with this though. Nothing is showing up. I checked my url and did as you suggested in the troubleshooting post above and still nothing. Hope you can help me. Thanks again!

  51. I have tried and tried this script. I've enabled the comment feed and checked and re-checked the codes but I still can't get it to work.

    Is there perhaps a newer code or some such since Blogger just changed to gadgets and everything???

    So confuzzled.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I tried it and although it works on principle, the effect is just all wrong. Instead of looking like yours (title and then comment count) mine was FULL URLS to the posts and comment count, so the entire text runs over the sidebars (I use 2 sidebars side by side). I thought I may have added the code wrongly or that it is supposed to be this way but I checked and I got the codes right and it still didn't look like yours. What went wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have a little problem, It show error when i gonna add the widget when using by combo box "Create Your Popular Posts Widget".

    Then I try Alternative installation ( adding feed whit this code "http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=1cf38ae68efbe859c4ba1ee239cec099&_render=rss&num=50&url=http%3A%2F%2Fa1dde.blogspot.com" but it showing link not the title of my post. And I think tht look bad :( any opinion for me?

    ReplyDelete
  54. It worked for me, but did not show some of the foreign characters all messed up and it showed deleted post title.

    Thanks for your idea anyway. It did work for some. I just hope that there might be a solution for all.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi Amanda,

    I really like this widget! Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working well. Like Funn Lim reported a few comments above, when installed, the list shows the permalink/URL, not the post title. I've triple quadruple checked the code here and on some other sites I've found that have the same widget, and it all seems the same.. and yet, mine's not working!

    you can see it in action here, click the tab that says "popular".

    A second problem is that when viewing this tab of the tabbed sidebar (which I also got from you, thanks!!) on a Mac using Firefox, the text isn't contained and instead runs over the sidebar (again - sounds like what Funn Lim experienced). Seems to work fine on my PC using Firefox.

    I've looked in your forum and don't see anything like this discussed. Hope you can help out!

    Although your widget is VERY useful, I see four challenges -

    1. Will only work for english language posts
    2. Will not capitalise letters
    3. Will parse the Url and not the blog title
    4. The list items tend to come in the center, and not on the left like my other entries

  121. Hi there. After installing this widget it wasn't working for me, just displaying the "Widget by Blogger Buster."

    I double checked your suggestions in the troubleshooting section and they seem to check out. I also followed the Pipe link, and there I got the following error message...

    "Pipes encountered a problem while running this pipe: The Pipes engine request failed (999)"

    I don't know if the whole thing is down at the moment or if it's something on my end, but I was hoping that you might shed some light on this. Thank you in advance.

  138. Hello Amanda

    Really sad -- the widget isn't working on my blog either. I've checked that the URL is correct, as well as the feed settings. I would love to be able to include this feature, and would be grateful if you do have time to look at it. My blog is at: http://www.independentlivingblog.co.uk/

    Many thanks; really appreciate the work you put into developing widgets and templates for blogger!

  139. Hi Amanda,

    Unfortunately it is not working for me.
    I have tried to put it on my blog:

    http://dpstudent.blogspot.com

    You will notice it is just below advertisements in the tab section labeled "Most Popular"

    Since the javascript was colliding with my tab script i have created a HTML/JS widget (fixed) that contains the content in that tab and in this tab i have copied the code that was suggested to be imported (auto import messes up my template).

    In the content of the widget i have copied the code but i added < noscript>< /noscript> open and close tags before, and after the script itself to avoid it interfering with tabs.

    Can you please help out ?
    What am i doing wrong ?

    ReplyDelete
  140. Got it to work,

    Thx anyway

    ReplyDelete
  143. Amanda, this did not work for me. I tried it several times on both my main blog and test blog. I only get the widget title, but nothing else. Also, it totally wipes out everything else on my sidebar! I can't move any of my page elements either. I have my comment feed set to full and I did type my URL in correctly. :(

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

  167. popular posts and most commented widgets, it's a good idea to post more on these type of blog posts, since many people seeking for help in this, they may have some problems in the widget, widget not working for me stuff like that, also follow link my name which has a article directory, that offers submission without account/sign up, saves your time, quickly promote your blog posts, get great backlinks, build page rank.
