Statistics Widget for Blogger

Monday, October 6, 2008

Statistics Widget For BloggerHere is my latest widget for Blogger/ Blogspot; I am going to call it Statistics Widget for Blogger. I have noticed a few sites displaying blog statistics like, total number of posts, total number of comments, total words in posts, total words in comments and similar data on their sidebar. I thought of coming out with a similar widget for Blogger.

What is Statistics Widget for Blogger?
Statistics Widget for Blogger will display the total number of posts and total number of comments on your blog. As of now, I have included only these two data for display. I do not see any value in displaying the total words in posts and total words in comments. I find them meaningless. If you are interested to display the total number of posts and total number of comments on your blog, please follow the instructions below.

Instructions to install Statistics Widget for Blogger
  1. Log in to your Blogger account

  2. On your Blogger Dashboard, click on the "Layout" link

    Layout Link

  3. This will take you to the "Page Elements" tab. Decide where you want to insert the statistics widget and click on the "Add a Gadget" link accordingly.

    Gadget Link

  4. Scroll down the list and find "HTML/ Javascript" and click on the "+" button

    HTML/ Javascript Gadget

  5. This will open the "Configure HTML/ Javascript" window. In the title section, please type "Blog Statistics" or "Blog Information" or "Blog Data" or any other title as you may wish

  6. In the content section, please copy & paste the following code:
    <script style="text/javascript">

    function numberOfPosts(json) {
    document.write('Total Posts: <b>' + json.feed.openSearch$totalResults.$t + '</b><br>');
    }

    function numberOfComments(json) {
    document.write('Total Comments: <b>' + json.feed.openSearch$totalResults.$t + '</b><br>');
    }

    </script>

    <ul><li><script src="http://yourblog.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=json-in-script&callback=numberOfPosts"></script></li>

    <li><script src="http://yourblog.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default?alt=json-in-script&callback=numberOfComments"></script></li></ul>

    <span style="font-size:75%;"><a href="http://assessmyblog.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">Widgets for Blogger</a></span>

  7. Remember to replace the text in bold "yourblog" with your blog address. Take note to replace it in two locations.

  8. Your window should look like the image below.

    Configure HTML Gadget

  9. I have a link back to my blog at the bottom. You are free to remove the credit, if you don't like it

  10. Click on "Save" button at the bottom right hand corner

That's it. You have created a widget to display the number of posts and number of comments on your blog. Please contact me if you have any doubts or you face any problems with the widget.

Hi Takumi86,

I can understand. I am glad that you quickly reacted after my first comment. I had seen bloggers who won't even care about others. But, you are not of that kind. I sincerely appreciate your review of my blog. Thanks.

Manick, great job on this widget. I have placed it on our blog. I found you through a link on blogger buster. I have book marked your site for future reference. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Manick November 27, 2008 at 5:35 AM  

Hi "Popcorn House",

Thanks for your comments and for using my widget on your blog. I am glad that you found my blog through Blogger Buster (Thanks to Amanda for the link).

Sam December 15, 2008 at 3:02 PM  

a very useful thingie indeed, particularly as I want to know how many comments I have on my blog.

However, all I get is the number of posts, for the number of comments I just get a little dot and nothing else - no words or numbers!! Can you advise? Thanks

Manick December 16, 2008 at 9:07 PM  

Hi Sam,

You should not have any problem with the widget. Please check whether you have copied the entire code as it is. And replaced the text "yourblog" with your blog address.

I suggest you to start again and redo it. I am sure it will work. Thanks.
