Try commenting out the header and see if you get any errors. (Line #10).
You might have to turn on error reporting to see them, by adding this to the top of the script:

ini_set('display_errors', true);

I tried you code on my test server and it seems to work fine, so this is most likely something minor, like a broken path to an image. The errors will tell us exactly what it is.

Line #22. 'No. of posts&raquo; ' . There should not be a HTML entity in that, as this text is not going to be printed to a HTML page. You should be using the real symbol: 'No. of postsĀ» '
