 cellspacing - Space between cells (default one is good)
 
borderColor - Border color (add the background color of your template to perfectly blend it in the template)
thumbwidth & thumbheight - Width and Height of the thumbnail (default are good)fntsize - Font size of the title
 acolor - Color of the titleaBold - you want bold titles? (true or false)
numposts - How many posts you want to show?
home_page : http://www.sohailjawaid.blogspot.com/ (change this to your blog url)
This script is currently hosted in my server ( http://myblogtalk.com/bloggertemplates/js/recentposts_thumbnail.js ).
But, it is STRONGLY Recommended to download the script and upload to your own hosting (google for free javascripts hosts) and replace that url with yours.
4. Last but not the least.. Save the Changes.
That's it guys!
