WordPress Popular Posts is a highly customizable widget that displays the most popular posts on your blog.

Main Features

  • Multi-widget capable. That is, you can have several widgets of WordPress Popular Posts on your blog - each with its own settings!
  • Time Range - list those posts of your blog that have been the most popular ones within a specific time range (eg. last 24 hours, last 7 days, last 30 days, etc.)!
  • Custom Post-type support. Wanna show other stuff than just posts and pages?
  • Display a thumbnail of your posts! (see the FAQ section for technical requirements).
  • Use your own layout! Control how your most popular posts are shown on your theme.
  • WPML support!
  • Experimental WordPress Multisite support!

Other Features

  • Check the statistics on your most popular posts from wp-admin.
  • Order your popular list by comments, views (default) or average views per day!
  • Shortcode support - use the [wpp] shortcode to showcase your most popular posts on pages, too! For usage and instructions, please refer to the installation section.
  • Template tags - Don't feel like using widgets? No problem! You can still embed your most popular entries on your theme using the wpp_get_mostpopular() template tag. Additionally, the wpp_gets_views() template tag allows you to retrieve the views count for a particular post. For usage and instructions, please refer to the installation section.
  • Localizable to your own language (See the FAQ section for more info).
  • WP-PostRatings support. Show your visitors how your readers are rating your posts!

Notices

  • Starting version 3.0.0, the way plugin tracks views count switched back to AJAX. The reason for this change is to prevent bots / spiders from inflating views count, so if you're using a caching plugin you should clear its cache after installing / upgrading the WordPress Popular Posts plugin so it can track your posts and pages normally.

WordPress Popular Posts is now also on GitHub!
