Fixing the Popular Post Gadget in Minima

Do you use the Minima template?
Does your Popular Posts gadget look like this?
Do you want to fix it, so it looks like this????!!!

1. Go to the Template tab on your Dashboard, then click “edit HTML.”
2. Now click your cursor inside the box with all the code and then hit (Ctrl+F) to open the search box.  Search for this:  .sidebar li {

You should see this:

.sidebar li {

3. Now simply change the -15 I have highlighted in red above to 0.

YAY! That it!!! You’re done. Quick and easy!


  1. Thank you!! This is so easy and it worked like a charm! 🙂

  2. Thank you for this. Real easy adjustments I can make. Ü

  3. Some of my thumbnails don’t show on the popular posts…
    Is there a way to fix this?

    Thank you

    • Do you have pictures uploaded to those posts? Are the pictures uploaded through Blogger and are they showing? If they aren’t showing in the posts, then you need to re-upload them to the post so they will show. Then they will appear in the popular posts gadget. Hope this helps!
