    Ditto ;-)


    I’m having the same problem at http://sequinsandcherryblossom.com so I’ve switched to text list until it’s fixed.


    Everyone: This thread has been flagged for staff to look at. Unfortunately WordPress.com staff tend not to work on weekends, so you’ll probably all have to wait til Monday. Please be patient.

    There will be a staff meet-up next week but staff will still be looking in on these forums.

    I’ve made a sticky-post up top (no need to repost about this issue there because these threads have all been modlooked already: just subscribe so you know when there is a response).

    I’ve also contacted staff, so we can hope for a fix sooner than later for this problem.



    Thanks :)



    What can I do: I want to show in my sidebar the top posts as image grid which functioned well until yesterday: suddenly it shows 10 times my blog icon instead of the pictures as before,
    the link to the post still works.
    I changed it for now in\” Text List\” not to have a stupid ten times the same picture.
    Who knows what happened and why, although I didn\’t change my settings?

    No, it is not anything you did. And you or I or other volunteers cannot fix it: staff is doing something behind the scenes which we do not have access to. Subscribe to this topic so you will be notified when there is a staff response, be patient, and perhaps make the widget display as just links for a while.

    Display as – Select if you would like to show normal links,

    I have been in and out so have not really been on top to this issue. I think (hope) the problem will be addressed soon.


    Hiya, I am also having the same issue. My blog uses the ‘fresh and clean’ theme. Blog is here: http://michaelpiggott.wordpress.com/




    I am reporting the same problem. My blog uses the “Oxygen” theme.

    Please note: Staff has been alerted to the problem. But it is the weekend! See the sticky note on top of the forums: Staff will be working on this mess ASAP! Subscribe to the thread(s) so you will be notified when this is fixed.


    Same problem. I thought I was going crazy and then I found this forum. For the time being I’ve changed the Featured Image on all my top posts (a fairly time-consuming task) just to keep the look of my home page the same. The only part that sucks is that now the featured image glares at you as a header when you click on each link. I’ll be happy when they fix this issue…



    Same problem since yesterday on my blog wordstodeeds.com – top posts list showing only my gravatar instead of individual post images. I’ve changed it to a text list for the moment as Timethief suggested, but please, Support, fix it asap – images are a big part of my blog! Thanks!



    Thanks for the sticky post.
    https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/problems-with-top-posts-and-pages-widget?replies=18 There appear to be other image related issues that may be related to this one as well. Hopefully, they have all been tagged.



    Just to add to @timethief‘s comment – the automatic wordpress to Facebook post has the same issue. Instead of relevant post image, it is posting the blog icon.


    Having the same problem with Top Posts and Pages as well as my Facebook sharing.


    Yes same here………..


    So…is the widget still out of order?

    Yes. It is still not working, still out of order.

    Staff is aware of the problem, but so far it is not functioning as designed. The only thing we volunteers can say is to be patient.


    Thanks for the update.
