Showing a list of the content that is most discussed is indeed a great way to encouraging new users to join in the conversation. It also benefits in building an active community that means more engagement and more readers would be jumping into your website. In this article, we will demonstrate that how to display most commented posts in blogger?


The very first thing you need to do is to login to your blogger account with the help of your Gmail ID and password. Once you are successfully entered to Blogger Dashboard, go to Layout >> Sidebar >> Add a gadget >> Add HTML/JavaScript and in the HTML Text box paste the following piece of code:

<!– Popular posts with comment count Start –>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
function getYpipePP(feed) {
 document.write(‘<ol style=””>’);
 var i;
 for (i = 0; i < feed.count ; i++)
 {
var href = “‘” + feed.value.items[i].link + “‘”;
var pTitle = feed.value.items[i].title;
var pComment = ” (” + feed.value.items[i].commentcount + “)”;
var pList = “<li>” + “<a href=”+ href + ‘” target=”_blank”>’ + pTitle;
 document.write(pList);
 document.write(pComment); //to remove comment count delete this line
 document.write(‘</a></li>’);
 }
 document.write(‘</ol>’);
 }
 </script>
 <script src=”http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?
 YourBlogUrl=http://www.mybloggerlab.com/
 &ShowHowMany=10
 &_id=390e906036f48772b2ed4b5d837af4cd
 &_callback=getYpipePP

<!– Popular posts with comment count End –>

After pasting the above code, you need to customize it to your desire needs, so do not forget to replace http://www.mybloggerlab.com/ with your blog URL. By default, it would display 10 most commented posts so to increase or decrease the count replace =10 with the number of posts you would like to display.
