    This does exactly what it promises and does it well. I have used it for the past four years and I’ve had little issue with it.

    The only complaint, small, is its CSS practices and a few inconsistencies. It uses several CSS properties with “!important” attributes which isn’t exactly an efficient practice — and ignored by frameworks like AMP that emphasise lean code (to clarify, the plugin author offers a good explanation for why he does that in their response below). Thumbnail options in the plugin settings also have no effects on thumbnails in widgets. I dequeued its stylesheet and added styles to a custom stylesheet, and they still apply with !important.

    Otherwise, it’s the best plugin for what it does — lean and efficient.

    Thank you for the review. I agree with you about the !important but it’s the problematic issue I’ve found with the variety of themes out there and not every user is familiar with CSS.

    In fact, your approach of adding your own styles is actually the best option in my view – even better if you can put it in your theme’s style.css

    There might be a solution with very specific CSS selectors.

    Thank you clarifying; now I understand why you do it.

    Normally I would add to styles.css but I want to load the styles conditionally since a few pages do not display most popular posts.
