    OK, it may be working, but I am not sure.

    I have created custom category pages (e.g. category-10.php) so that I can control what appears in the category indexes. I have added this code to display just the most popular items of this category (by excluding all other categories):

    <?php get_mostpopular("pages=0&range=weekly&limit=20&category=3&stats_comments=0&cats_to_exclude=10,57,7304,33,6682,82,2515,6684,7302,42"); ?>

    But it is only showing 6 items, even though I am requesting 20.

    Now, I guess this is either because:

    1. there are only 6 items for category 3 listed (I know category=3 does not work, but I left it there to make my life easier….) which means nothing else will show. I can test this in a second actually by clicking on some other articles.

    2. In the top 20 posts 6 are category=3 and this is why it is displaying just 6.

    Any ideas? Is there a way to force it to display the top 20 of a particular category?

    I now have 10 listed. Hmmm, why is nobody ready my articles? lol

    Ah, and 10 is the maximum that can be displayed? That is OK.

    Code now is:
    <?php get_mostpopular("pages=0&range=all&limit=10&category=3&stats_comments=0&cats_to_exclude=10,57,7304,33,6682,82,2515,6684,7302,42"); ?>
    Decided to change range to “all” to ensure that there are not empty lists at the start of the day.
