Support » Plugin: Top 10 - Popular posts plugin for WordPress » A good substitute for Jetpack's Top Posts widget.

  • Original Review: I was hoping that by removing titles and excerpts and only showing the images, I could make this look like a grid. Not what I was looking for at all.

    EDITED REVIEW: My original review was 3 stars, but I’ve changed it to 5 for two reasons:
    1) Ajay was incredibly helpful in showing me how to alter the CSS so this plugin would show up as a grid and
    2) it worked! 😛

    So now the plugin does exactly what I need it to do, which was to replace the Top Posts feature of Jetpack. I definitely recommend this as a lighter substitute.

    Chelsey,

    The plugin doesn’t come with an inbuilt grid style. Note that you have complete flexibility to customize the display as you might choose.

    I’ve been trying to get a grid style to work. Please check out the code below that you can add to your site. It works with Twenty 15 theme.

    Thanks for the response, Ajay! I use the Sugar & Spice theme, do you think this will work with that?

    Chelsey, The only option is to test it and see. If you’d like to give this is a shot, please add it to your theme.

    I can look at your site once you do this.

    I’ve added it to my site (http://diybudgetgirl.com) and it’s still showing up as a list.

    Chelsey,

    I noticed that you have

    .tptn_posts ul li,
    .tptn_posts_daily ul li {
        float: center;

    Could you please change this to:

    .tptn_posts ul li,
    .tptn_posts_daily ul li {
        float: left;

    Done. Sorry, I must have been playing around with it and forgot to change that back when it didn’t do anything.

    Chelsey,

    Does this resolve your issue? If so, would you reconsider the rating?

    It’s still showing them in a straight line, rather than a grid.

    Could you please set the padding to 0px

    .tptn_posts ul li, .tptn_posts_daily ul li {
      float: left;
      width: 50%;
      padding: 0px;
      list-style: none;
      list-style-position: inside;
      height: 120px;
      text-align: center;
      word-wrap: break-word;
    }

    It worked! Thanks for the help! I’ve changed my review. 🙂

    Thank you very much 🙂

    I’m glad I was able to convince you that Top 10 is indeed a 5-star plugin!
