    I'm currently using the time range setting of "last 30 days" according to comments. Hence, it should have output the posts which have the most comments for the last 30 days. However, I've posts from half a year ago showing up as popular post. Is it a bug or...?

    I will appreciate it if you can look into this issue.

    Thank you!

    Not a bug, my friend. See, my plugin lists all those posts that have been viewed by your readers for the last X days, even those published a year (or more) ago. If these posts get enough views, you'll see them ranking on the list.

    Do you think it should be different?

    yes, this confused me too. IMHO it should be the most viewed in the last 30 days. Can you add an option for the behavior?

    What happens is old posts eventually crowd out new discussions. Just one person looks at one and it pushes out a hot (recently hot) post.

    Agree. This has been implemented on WordPress Popular Posts 2.0 and will be released to the public soon (hopefully!).
