wPopularity - Wordpres Plug-In

This will enable ranking of your posts by popularity using the behavior of your visitors to determine each post's popularity. That Plugin is base

Why are new posts so much more popular than old posts?

Since home and feed views have not been recorded for old posts, they won't be ranked as highly as new posts.

Are pages counted too?

If you have received comment spam or just need to recount your comments/trackbacks for any reason, you can use the 'Reset Comments/Trackback/Pingback Counts' button on the Options > Popularity page. If somment spam is an ongoing problem for you, you may want to set up a CRON job to run this script every night. This example will run the recount every night at 3am:

0 3 * * * wget -q http://www.example.com/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wpopularity.php?ak_action=recount_feedback

How do I uninstall Widgetized Populairy Contest?

Go back to you Plugins page, and click 'Deactivate' for Popularity Contest.

What if I want to re-enable 'widgetized Popularity Contest later?

No problem. Go back to the Plugins page and click 'Activate' for wPopularity. wPopularity will check to see if there are new posts and feedback since it was last activated, and will "catch up" as much as possible.

How do I disable showing 'Popularity: n%' on my posts?

For this, you need to edit the wPopularity plugin .php file. Just change this:

@define('AKPC_SHOWPOP', 1);

to this:

@define('AKPC_SHOWPOP', 0);

If you don't want to edit the .php file, you can add this to your WordPress index.php file:

@define('AKPC_SHOWPOP', 0);

You can also set this on a conditional basis via your own plugin by accessing the 'akpc_display_popularity' hook.

How do I turn off the '[?]' on my posts?

For this, you need to edit the wPopularity plugin .php file. Just change this:

@define('AKPC_SHOWHELP', 1);

to this:

@define('AKPC_SHOWHELP', 0);

If you don't want to edit the .php file, you can add this to your WordPress index.php file:

@define('AKPC_SHOWHELP', 0);

How can I show lists of my most popular posts in my sidebar?

Just use Dynamic sidebar Widget Called 'Most Popular'. YOu can configure: Titele of Blog, Maximum number of shown posts. And Advanced mode. Advaced mode knows: categories, and archives. So is category is selected, the included sidebar shows a list of most popular posts in that category. When viewing a month archive, the included sidebar shows a list of most popular posts for that month.

Anything else?

That about does it - enjoy!
