    The popular posts are not showing below the title of the widget in my sidebar on http://www.centsmakingsense.com.

    Can anybody help me solve this issue? :)

    I don't see any popular posts in your sidebar. Also can you post a screenshot?

    Hi Ajay, greetings from Rajasthan.
    I installed your plugin today and same problem: I have the widget title in the footer but no post title appear. Looked through the setting but found nothing I could do.

    I see the instructions below on your site - where does it need to be added?

    In order to display the most popular posts, you will need to add <?php if(function_exists('tptn_show_pop_posts')) tptn_show_pop_posts(); ?>.

    In order to display the most popular posts, you will need to add <?php if(function_exists('tptn_show_daily_pop_posts')) tptn_show_daily_pop_posts(); ?>.

    Ajay, I now have it re-activated in my sidebar. I am wondering the same thing as the guy above about where the code is supposed to go.

    @SAFC, I see posts in the footer of your site under Most viewed

    @centsmakingsense, I can see posts as well. When I visited a blog post I saw the sidebar update

    Haha that is too funny. Ajay, you must have good luck because it was not working for me. Well, I guess that it just needs some time to gather the information. Thanks so much. :)

    Well the widget kind of works now. For some reason, it is only showing my welcome page post and nothing else.

    Hi Ajay, apologies for not coming back to you. The widget started to work few hours after I wrote to you, probably the time it took to gather some page views as my site is under construction. So it seems to be ok now although I am not sure how page views are registered. Many thanks for replying and taking good care of us!

    Your welcome. Thanks for using the plugin!

    Ok, so the final conclusion to this issue was:

    This tool does not take past views and add them up to immediately list your most popular posts.

    This tool starts adding up views once you install it, so it takes some time to collect data and start posting the results.

    Thank you.

    Your welcome. It usually takes a day.
