Random Posts Widget for Blogger with Thumbnails

Random Posts Widget for Blogger with Thumbnails

The Random Posts Gadget will  display a list of Random Posts(from your blog) on your Blog’s Sidebar. The Gadget has an options panel and can be configured to meet your needs. The Gadget inherits styles from your Blog. But you can override the colors if you want(this was done to support third party templates which doesn’t have the skin variables properly designed).

About the Various Options

Maximum Length of Post Title – Your post titles can be too long. In that case you can limit the title to x  number of characters using this parameter.

Snippet Style – You can display the snippet with Post Summary, Post Thumbnail , or both or none. 

Feed – The default Option “Summary Feed” will scan your post summary feed. This is the faster and efficient option and i would advise you to opt this one. If you choose  “Full Feed” , the gadget will be slower but you will get YouTube Thumbnails also.
Note:- If you want to grab the images or YouTube thumbnails, then you should have “Site Feeds” set to Full. If you opt for the Media Thumbnail only, then the short feed will be used by default.

Thumbnail Dimensions – Size of the Thumbnail in pixels. The gadget doesn’t generate any Thumbnail. It just uses the media thumbnail,YouTube thumbnail , or any image in the post and scales it to the specified dimensions

Summary Length  -  If you have opted to display the post Summary, then you can control the length of the summary(in characters)

Post Meta Style – You can display the Post Date, Comment Count and a Read More Link.You can choose any combination of these three.

Font  and Font Size– By Default, the container’s font  and Font Size is inherited into the Gadget. But if you are using a 3rd party template, then these might not be properly inherited. In that case you can use this Option to over ride these parameters.

Extra Styling – Allows you to specify the position of the Thumbnail, and whether to underline the links or not.

Border Color – You can either opt for No Border, or select one of the 140 available colors. If you  are not sure about how these colors look like, then take a look at this color chart at W3Schools - http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colornames.asp 

Link Color and Text Color – By default , the colors will be inherited from your Blog. If you want to override this , you can choose one out of the 140 different colors.

(The colors were provided in the Dropdown(and not as text fields) to tackle a problem with the API)

Read More Text – This field was intentionally added to help blogs which are not written in English. Initially i used  “More »” as the Read more text without taking any user Input. Seeing this on a non- English Blog is a little awkward. So i added this new field :)

Update:

just updated the recent posts and random posts gadgets. Some blogger methods were deprecated(not sure if it is temporary) and so an update was necessary. these gadgets are cached on to the blogger servers and so may take time to reflect onto your blogs. If you can't wait then remove the gadgets and add them using the following links

  2. thank you very useful widget for me. thank you very very much.

  3. Thanks, great widget! The previous ones I've tried were too slow.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hi, thanks for sharing but I think I need help since this widget is just not working for the Mahusay theme (it works for the others). I would definitely appreciate it if anyone can help me out, thanks.

    In addition to this, the Mahusay theme also has the same problem with related-posts-thumbnails-blogger-widget.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Wow. this widget has so many options to work with to tailor made what you display on the blog. Good one. I stop using most popular blog post widget done by blogger as it dose not have a way to control the number of posts I display.

    Lets try this one.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Thanks:)
    I show powered by link, of course :)

  7. @TUTSVNN.TK - i can try to help if you have added the gadget on some blog having that theme.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Great. Just did it. Thanks once again.

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Aneesh: thanks. I am using that theme for my blog tutsvnn.tk, could you please help? Have a nice day.

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Aneesh: update: I installed this widget yesterday and then uninstalled it an retried since it was not working as it should (not showing thumb). Now it's even worse, I've just reinstalled it and it's not showing anything. This widget is not in the Blog View nor in Page Elements (I saw it in html edit, so I actually added it, but it disappears somehow).

    ReplyDelete
  11. @TUTSVNN.TK - you have set the site feeds to "Short" and not to "Full"(in your Blog Settings) . If the feeds are set to "short", then the gadget can only grab the Media Thumbnails and not the other images. Its not an error with the template or the Gadget.

    ReplyDelete
  12. @Aneesh: this is another update: I have now managed to make the widget showed (just open html edit and move the widget to somewhere next to a visible widget). But the problem remains: no thumb (you can see it in the right column of my blog). However now I have to confess that it's not a problem of the ORIGINAL Mahusay theme (I load the original one and the widget works). I have changed the theme towards my purpose and that causes the problem. What should I do?

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Aneesh: you are absolutely right, I changed the feed to full and this works. You are the best man, thanks so much. I love your blog and have added it to the list of sites that I recommend to my friends. Best wishes and have a nice day.

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Aneesh: I have another problem, this widget seems not working in iExplorer (and so do the related posts). Could you please give us a fix? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi Aneesh,

    I have translated your post into Vietnamese to help those who don't speak English, hope you don't mind.

  20. it does not work with Light box.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This post and widget is simply wonderful :-)

    This is what I wanted for a long long time. Keep up the great work.

    It would be kind if you could also tell how this can be configured in one of the blogpost static pages.

    Right now I have managed with a widget right below the post body and some if else conditions to display it only on one of the pages.

    Thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The widget works but it's not picking up my styles properly. I don't know if that's because of my template or what. Some more guidance on custom styling the widget would be appreciated, specifically custom colours and custom borders (e.g. border styles), as well as padding. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Sylvia - you can customize the colors of the text, links and the border.Padding and Other CSS stuff are not supported. If the gadget is not inheriting the colors properly, then find out the color that best matches your template. Visit this link and find out the appropriate colors http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colornames.asp . You will find all of these 140 colors in the Gadget Options.

  25. Awesome widget! Last night falling asleep I was thinking I need some random post gadget and here it is! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Alas, none of the colours listed come close to what I need. I have a custom template for a reason. ;) I ended up installing the widget, scooping the javascript from the HTML, putting that into a blank widget, and editing the colours directly. Too bad about the borders/padding though. It would be better if the widget used CSS rather than prefs for styling, but I appreciate what's there because it works much better than the other bits of javascript I tried! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Sylvia - Gadgets developed using the Gadget API would fail if the user types in long inputs. Thats why the CSS option was not included. And thats why the colors were given in the Drop down instead of a text field.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ah, I see, too bad. The other javascripts I tried were not widgets so they didn't have that limitation. Unfortunately they don't work! :D This widget's script is working for me, so thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey Aneesh, How to manage Margin between the links? There is no gapping between the link. How to do it??

  32. I cannot see any thumbnails in the demo

    ReplyDelete
  33. hi friend its so help ful thanks for ur work

    how to change the thumbnail size?

    ReplyDelete
  34. This widget is great, but I really appreciate the possibility to have a larger Thumbnail up to 200px and to fix it in the center.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just wanted to say that I am new to using Blogger, even though I am a seasoned Web Designer & Developer and your site has been EXTREMELY helpful for dealing with the learning curve (with the code) on Blogger. I appreciate you taking the time to contribute great articles.

    Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I installed this gadget yesterday evening and today more aoujourd nothing appears I have to redo everything on my site

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was wondering if there was ANY way that you could tell this widget to pull from blog posts with a SPECIFIC label from which you set?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Amazing, this widget must be add at my blog, and the user can see random post . . . . :) Thanks Aneesh

    ReplyDelete
  39. This gadget kills the google adsense ads from the page...

    When you click a link in this gadget, the loading page doesn't show the adsense ads.

    Pls correct this error.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love this widget, thanks!! but I set my posts number to 3 and only 1 thumbnail will show up. Tried changing settings and even looked at the tutorial...still only 1 thumbnail. Help??

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Winget works well, but there is a problem with adsense when I step on some random Post by transferring there but normally do not appear to have advertisements on my blog

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would like to choose specific posts to show. Is this possible with recent posts or random posts gadget?
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  43. Fantastic widget! Thanks so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. thanks admin,, great place for blogger lovers

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have waited for this widget for a long time.
    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Didn't work for me. It's just not picking up the styles properly from the sidebar container. I tried playing around with the settings for a long time, but couldn't make them match with the other link lists in my sidebar! And that's when I'm still using the classic lighthouse template of blogger!

    It would have been really awesome if you had released a JavaScript + CSS version of this widget too.

    ReplyDelete
  47. It is so perfect. And it was so mature of you to put "Show/Hide Powered By"
    Thank you,
    Aloha

  55. great Widget indeed and i would love to install it but when i publish it there is always this remark for admin...upps where i did get wrong? Any help available?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Very useful! Thanks!

    ...but I cannot see snippet thumbnail option. Why?

    ReplyDelete
  57. It's a great widget! But, as someone says, when you click in the random links, the widget kills the adsense in the interior of the posts. A fix for this, please?

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Jamie - Every gadget made using the Gadget API will have this problem. I had reported this to the Blogger and Adsense Teams but nothing interesting has happened so far. I can't do anything about it and i hope that they will fix it soon.

    Temporary Fix - The old ad code will work propely with the Gadgets. If you add ads from the Blogger Interface, then you will be getting the old adsense ad code. You can also get the old ad code from http://oldadsensecode.com/
    If you wanna test it you can see the Recent Posts Gadget on my test blog http://adsensebugreport.blogspot.com

  65. Hi love this widget, but is there a way to center the title and image? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi! Great widget! But I´m with Monique...I only have Thumbnails is there a way to center the image in the widget?
    Other question is that in my blog doesn´t appears the thumbnails of videos, could be due to the navigator version? I had the recent posts widget installed and I saw the thumbnails of the videos correctly...
    Thank you very much!

  67. Excellent tips really its worked http://urldata.blogspot.com/

    ReplyDelete
  68. hey its a nice widget, but am unable to configure the size of the text - its just too big compared to the rest of the text on my blog and looks very odd.

    do have a look here - www.siddharthajoshi.com

    ReplyDelete
  69. Firstly I love what you've done here, secondly I'm a little frustrated about not being able to choose colors by hex. Thirdly if you were to ever improve this widget, my first recommendation would be the ability to pull random posts from a specific tag or label, that would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  70. @Aneesh, Thanks for this helpful widget, is there a way to get the list to disply horizontally underneath my posts rather than as a vertical list?

    THanks!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would like to make a suggestion, which in my opinion would enhance this widget greatly.

    Could you create an RSS Feed from this list that is configurable?

    The number of these random posts to write to the RSS Feed must be configurable from 1 to the number selected to display by this widget.

    The reason for this is that currently there is no way of randomly selecting a post from previously written posts and then adding it to a feed that eventually could be posted on Twitter as a random post from a blog writer's blog. This way, previous blog posts could be kept alive among a person's followers, whether it is sent on Twitter, or followed in a Feed Reader of some sort.

    Any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  72. wonderful! i've been looking for this widget. i found another version but not working but this one truly rock!

  73. hey is it possible to get the actual html code for this? i want to put this within a certain div on my blog. thanx

  76. doesn't work together with Light Box,

    but if i remove the code of the Light Box from main HTML, Random Post Widget works again!

    how can i solve this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  77. @EHUPhotoBlog - the lightbox post has been updated. Update you2r template accordingly and you will get both working :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. thanks! it works now!

    it's almost the thing i need, but i need to show not the thumbnail but a full image and centered...

    is it possible to get your script, remake it and add it on my blog as HTML/JavaScript widget? i'm not sure that i can make it, but... )

    ReplyDelete
  79. hello u never answered my question about getting the css and html ect codes for the widget please. is this possible? thanx for you time

    ReplyDelete
  80. Aneesh, thank you so much for all your work. It is the third widget of your I have embeded in my blog : recent, related and comments.

    http://khatran.blogspot.com

    It's a pity we can't add a single css rule. For the related posts, I had to download the script and host it on a separate server ...
    Not the right way to do this, but it works.

    You keep talking about options, method 2 but I don't see a link in your post. any idea ?

    ReplyDelete
  81. As I said, I have embeded three of your widgets on my we. I removed the "powered by", and put a credit in my footer.
    thanks again

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hi! I'm using "The Blog" XML template and I'm having too, the same problem: the thumbnails are not showing as well as the total number of posts is limited only to 15 (I've configured to 20). I have followed all thw instructions and advices in the previous posts but nothing. Is there a solution to this or a way to edit the widget?

    Thanks in advance for your time,

  86. Hi, i want to use this widget on a message to create a gallery of thumbnail.
    Is it possible ???

    ReplyDelete
  87. I have few issues here ..
    But before that , i want to thank you for such a great widget.. thanks ..
    My blog : http://sexy-southbabes.blogspot.com

    1.) the thumbnails are not on the same line .. you can see the first row of images , they are not straight

    2.) the link ends with "?utm_source=BP_recent" hence no ads are displayed when visiting the link .. this is seriuos problem as the purpose of the widget is lost...

    3.)Is there a way to randomize the post ?that would be a great thing..

    ReplyDelete
  88. @Skoar - you have installed the recent posts gadget and not the random posts one.
    1)will look into it and fix the same :)
    2)The adsense issue is not an issue related to the gadget and it has nothing to do with the analytics parameters appended to the url. Its a common issue when the referrer is a Gadget Iframe. Will be solved if you use the old adsense ad code(or the blogger provided adsense ads)
    3)This gadget shows random posts.

    ReplyDelete
  89. ALMOST PERFECT!
    Take an A instead of an A+!

    That's right! The display can be improved on the
    random post listing.

    Trivial, you say? Au contraire, mon frere!

    The display is the creme de la creme of the post,
    keeping readers transfixed by the beauty of the piece!

    So, what's amiss, you say?

    Notice my reply!

    Very readable because of the WHITE SPACE!

    Whoop, there it is - if you add white space above and
    below the border color, you'll see the difference yourself,
    O Great Creator of Blogger gadgets and whatnot - even
    you would be transfixed at your own new creation!

    Once you add the white space, you might also want to
    add bold border colors to replace the barely discernible
    border colors that are used now, further enhancing the
    display of the random post list.

    Also, for the "No Borders" option, again, you can add
    white space to separate each new post - just add a
    blank line instead of a border.

    A seemingly minor point, I agree, but, you'd be surprised
    to see it is a very major point that will enhance readability
    and that's what you want for the reading of any blog.

    In closing, for your work, the highest compliment I can give anyone for their work is "When I grow up, I want to be just
    like you" and you just got it!

    Keep up the good work and have a great day!

  90. Thanks for the great widget. The only problem I've had is that the Firefox NoScript AddOn displays a ClearClick warning (image of it happening on my blog here). I notice there's no difference between the (partial) obstructed and clear views in the ClearClick dialog, but still it does look a little scary so I thought I'd report it.

    ReplyDelete

  114. before i dismantle this thing and try to make it do what i want, i was hoping there's an easy fix... i would like to add a 1-column footer below the content area (posts) that runs the length of the footer (which i can do myself), and then place this widget inside it. BUT!!! i don't want the posts running vertically--i want them positioned horizontally, instead. recap: add this widget to the footer (bottom of page--i can add that myself), have title/articles/images going left to right, not stacked up and down. simple solution? please advise. thank you in advance. :-)

  123. Nice widget except for the fact it doesn't show thumbnails correctly. I have read all the info provided here and can't find any answers. (No one replies to email questions) I have configured the number of posts to display many times over, trying different settings. The result is always the same. sometimes it only shows 1 thumbnail, sometimes 2, sometimes 3...totally random. It is suppose to show 6. I even re-installed but same problem. I see others here are having same problem. It just isn't showing thumbs correctly.

  127. This was amazing, But it stopped working, I posted it on all my sites one of them the "main one" is http://www.tek-bull.com underneath my "tek-bull" logo and on the right pannel under "featured" stories it worked great until this morning and is no longer displaying any stories and thumbnails.

    Is this due to my site? or is it a problem with the widget, it went down on every site I own.

  136. I checked it today and Voila! like magic it was working again today. It is most likely irrelevant but the only thing I did recently was re-install Java to resolve an issue I had elsewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I am using recent & random posts widget. Also I have a blogger blog with a custom domain name. I really like these widgets, but for some reason they don't work on every page all the time. They usually work, but then sometimes they don't. They may work on the home page, but won't work on the others. What could be the problem.

  149. It took me a little finessing, but with the options you have in the widget this has proven to be a great addition to my blog! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  150. a great thanks for you Admin... this is very useful for me... :)

    ReplyDelete
  151. Good widget but how about doing a version where it ignores posts with a certain keyword? Then all the posts you don't want being randomly generated (such as the one you've designated as a homepage) could be omitted.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I have some posts I don't want to show in this gadget. When will be update?
