OK, it may be working, but I am not sure.
I have created custom category pages (e.g. category-10.php) so that I can control what appears in the category indexes. I have added this code to display just the most popular items of this category (by excluding all other categories):
<?php get_mostpopular("pages=0&range=weekly&limit=20&category=3&stats_comments=0&cats_to_exclude=10,57,7304,33,6682,82,2515,6684,7302,42"); ?>
But it is only showing 6 items, even though I am requesting 20.
Now, I guess this is either because:
1. there are only 6 items for category 3 listed (I know category=3 does not work, but I left it there to make my life easier....) which means nothing else will show. I can test this in a second actually by clicking on some other articles.
2. In the top 20 posts 6 are category=3 and this is why it is displaying just 6.
Any ideas? Is there a way to force it to display the top 20 of a particular category?
