WordPress Popular Posts

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

  1. Download the plugin and extract its contents.
  2. Upload the wordpress-popular-posts folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate WordPress Popular Posts plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  4. In your admin console, go to Appeareance > Widgets, drag the WordPress Popular Posts widget to wherever you want it to be and click on Save.
  5. (optional) Go to Appeareance > Editor. On "Theme Files", click on header.php and make sure that the <?php wp_head(); ?> tag is present (should be right before the closing </head> tag).

That's it!

USAGE

WPP can be used as a WordPress Widget, which means you can place it on any of your theme's sidebars (and it even supports multiple instances!). However, you can also embed it directly in posts / pages via shortcode; or anywhere on your theme using the wpp_get_mostpopular() template tag.

... and there's even more on the Wiki, so make sure to stop by!
