[resolved] WordPress Popular Posts broken after update (8 posts)

    I've been using popular posts plug in for a while and it was working great. Tonight I updated a bunch of my plug ins and it stopped appearing correctly as a widget, and only appears in basic html form, which makes it look like a google ad block on my page, instead of my content.

    my page is at http://www.rsihealer.com. the popular posts plug in is on the 1st sidebar at the bottom...

    help????

    Thanks Michael, for the tip.
    The plug in can be found here....

    The page seems to take a while to load though.

    Any help?????????? Thanks.

    Works okay for me, at least with the WordPress Default theme--wonder if another plugin is causing the problem.

    Hmm, well it appears to be retrieving data okay, just not the widget appearance info. Could it be a compatibility issue since I'm running an older version of WP?

    Possibly

    Hi ahengst,

    It seems that you forgot to add
    < ul > and < /ul > (without the spaces!) (alternatively, < ol > and < /ol > if you want it to display as a numbered list) into the "Before / after Popular Posts" fields (Settings > WordPress Popular Posts, don't remember the actual path for older versions of WordPress).

    Give it a try and let me know if you find any other issues!

    Ikki-thanks! Apparently adding a little code made the widget images appear. Strange, but cool.
