  1. Hi, thank you so much for sharing this information. It is very useful and worked in my blog. Do you know how to change the Popular Posts to smaller thumbnails? Currently, the Popular Posts/Recipes on my blog is too big and taking a lot of space. My blog is www.bakewithpaws.com

    Thank you:)

    1. Hey Yeanley,

      Thanks for leaving comment.

      Your blog is not working without www so please add all the A records in your domain control panel for the domain to work perfectly.

      About the thumbnails, you can change the size through CSS. :)
