This is a jquery based lightweight plugin to create a new wordpress tabbed widget to display recent posts and popular posts.
I've been using this plugin for sometime on my website and never faced any issues with its functionality.
Yes, it has scope to improve. For example it could be much better if there were options to:
1. Choose timeframe for popular posts
2. Select categories to include/exclude from
But, I can't complain. It does a great job of what it does :-)
1. The sticky posts are forced showing up...
2. The popular tab has no options to choose a certain time period (daily / weekly / monthly / yearly / all time)...
