Need post popularity plugin that works with WP-Cache (2 posts)

    I'm after a plugin that can do the following:

    • Create a list of my most popular posts of all time
    • Create a list of my most popular posts for a specific length of time (e.g. last week or last month)
    • Is compatible with WP-Cache (unlike Alex King's Popularity Context plugin, which cannot count posts correctly when used with WP-Cache)
    • Doesn't put a huge load on my database

    Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

    This will correctly count posts even when you are using WP-Cache. It allows you to specify a time period to count for, if you set the time limit to 99 years old (or something similarly outrageous) then you will effectively get all post for all time. It was written to be very database friendly and uses joins instead of multiple round trips and has proper indexes on the one table it adds.
