It's showing ALL the posts rather than those specified in settings (13 posts)

    Hello guys, I didnt realized this before, but the widget is showing all the most popular posts, and ignoring the fact that I set it to show only those post counting from 2 years old.

    You can see it in the below link. Look for the URLs: I do use full dates in the permalinks:
    http://www.marcelopedra.com.ar/blog/2013/10/23/los-5-mejores-antivirus-gratuitos-para-tus-dispositivos-android/
    The widget is listing two posts which shouldn't be there.

    Hope to hear soon from you. Regards.

    @Marcelo Pedra -- I checked it out and in our database it looks like Most Popular is still set to pull entries from as far back as 10 years into your archive. Can you please go into your settings for Most Popular and double check that you save this setting to 2 years?

    I set it to 1 Year.
    But wait, do you use XML RPC to communicate with my site? or is it sending the data to your sever? I say this because I dont use XML RPC and disabled it two weeks ago...

    @Marcelo Pedra -- whenever settings are changed, our servers get pinged. We're still seeing MP set to 10 years in our database.

    Well that's weird. A bug, I'd said.

    It said 1 year on my end. Now changed it to 2 Years:

    What can you see now on your end?

    Do you rely on XML RPC to connect in any way to my site? Because I deactivated it for security reasons.

    @Marcelo Pedra -- We don't use XML RPC to connect to your site. Thanks for providing a screenshot of your settings - I now see that the maxageposts for MP has changed to 2 years. How does MPW look for you now?

    Hi. It is still showing posts from several years ago...
    You can test it yourself by visiting marcelopedra.com.ar/blog
    I guess this is something only you guys can fix from your end, right?

    @Marcelo Pedra -- Spoke with tech. Most Popular's maxagepost is very different from any of our other plugins' maxagepost.

    MPW's maxagepost determines how far back in time we should track "views" on their pages to calculate the most popular article. For ex. if I have maxagepost set to 5 years, and a post from 6 years ago has the most views, it will show up in the list of most popular units.

    @Katrina - And why is that the default behaviour? I think you should allow the owner to force the max age. What if I want to highlight most popular posts from one year ago without showing old, irrelevant, posts, even if they were the most popular sometime ago?

    Can you add an option to allow force this decision? (Please?) I know other owners would appreciate this.

    @Marcelo Pedra -- I've put in a feature request to see what we can do about allowing users to set how far back in the archive we go for Most Popular posts for a future build of our plugin.

    We've also fixed the formatting issue and Most Popular looks good on your site now: https://www.dropbox.com/s/on3nx76b4vr9um0/Screenshot%202014-04-23%2011.18.15.png
