I wondered if anyone could recommend a reliable WordPress plugin for popular posts (and ideally related posts too) that displays images that are the full width of the sidebar (e.g. 300 px) like those that appear on sites like Buzzfeed and Huffington Post?
I've used nRelate in the past for both related and popular posts, but it's not working with my current theme and I also want the larger images. You can see my site here: http://www.urbanghostsmedia.com/
The larger thumbnails (with titles below) that currently show in the sidebar are from the in-built Recent Posts option within the current theme. However as you can see, other posts don't show as full images and I can't figure out why! I've been in touch with the theme developers but still not been able to fix it. And even if I could, I'm looking to display popular posts, not recent ones.
If anyone can suggest a solution that would be amazing! Ideally a brilliant plugin that is reliable, lean and easy to configure. But in that absence of such a thing, a more involved option would suffice :)
Thanks massively in advance for your help and any advice would be greatly appreciated!
