Resize Popular Posts Widget Images in Blogger

If you are using the official popular posts widget from Blogger, you can see thumbnails of popular posts are too small. Default size of popular posts thumbnails is 72px × 72px. We can change this size easily editing a single line of popular posts widget code. Follow the steps given below:

Go to edit HTML of your blog and find this code:

resizeImage(data:post.featuredImage, 72, "1:1")

Change the value 72 to a different value like 120. Now your code should look like this:

resizeImage(data:post.featuredImage, 120, "1:1")

Now you will get 120px square images as popular posts thumbnails.

If you don't like square images, you can change the 1:1 ratio of width to height. For example if I change the ratio to 3:2 like below, I will get 120px width and 80px height images as popular post thumbnails.

resizeImage(data:post.featuredImage, 120, "3:2")

After that save your template and refresh your site to see changes.
