WordPress Popular Posts

WordPress Popular Posts is a highly customizable widget that displays the most popular posts on your blog.

  1. Download the plugin and extract its contents.
  2. Upload the wordpress-popular-posts folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate WordPress Popular Posts plugin through the "Plugins" menu in WordPress.
  4. In your admin console, go to Appearance > Widgets, drag the WordPress Popular Posts widget to wherever you want it to be and click on Save.
  5. If you have a caching plugin installed on your site, flush its cache now so WPP can start tracking your site.
  6. Go to Appearance > Editor. On "Theme Files", click on header.php and make sure that the <?php wp_head(); ?> tag is present (should be right before the closing </head> tag).
  7. (optional, but recommended for large / high traffic sites) Enabling Data Sampling and/or Caching is recommended. Check here for more.

That's it!

USAGE

WordPress Popular Posts can be used in three different ways:

  1. As a widget, simply drag and drop it into your theme's sidebar and configure it.
  2. As a template tag, you can place it anywhere on your theme with wpp_get_mostpopular().
  3. Via shortcode, so you can embed it inside a post or a page.

Make sure to stop by the Wiki as well, you'll find even more info there!
