Good, but need more

Hello, plugin is good. But h3 for title is too large, and using h3 is bad. Add settings in wordpress admin panel and it’ll perfect)

Good but a bit bizarre setup

I really like that plugin. It is simple, looks good and does what it should….But

– In my opinion the “show post before” is setup in a wrong way. I believe this plugin should show “most active” post WITHIN the set time

Unfortunately at the moment “show post before” is simply limiting “POSTING DATE” not the “VIEWS STARTED FROM”. It is very bizarre idea. Usually people want to see the most active posts not posts from last 3 days. Then the plugin should be advertised as simply “most recent post” not “most popular”.

At the moment settings:
– show 3 posts based on views
– all categories selected
– show post before 7 days

So it will show all posts POSTED within last 7 days. Unfortunately those are not the most active posts based on “view count”.

Could you fix this?
