[Plugin: WordPress Popular Posts] How Do I remove text completely, and display in 2 columns (7 posts)

    Hi!

    Love this plugin but was wondering if there is any way to get it to look more like what Design Milk has on their site.

    Essentially I want the popular posts to show up in 2 columns, multiple rows with image only. No (>), NO text, NO (...). Right now when I say 'no title' it uses (...) and that doesn't look very nice.

    Any way to tweak the code to achieve this?

    Thanks!

    Is there any way to get support for this plugin? If payment is required please tell me how much it would be.

    In your plug-in description it says:
    Use your own layout! Control how your most popular posts are shown on your theme.

    But I can't find instructions to control how the posts are shown in my theme.

    Hi webgyrl,

    Sorry for not replying earlier as I've been quite busy in the past few weeks.

    You could try hiding the text and stats using CSS with display:none; and keep visible the images only. You can find the selectors in wordpress-popular-posts/style/wpp.css.

    And yes, my plugin states that you can control how to show your popular posts - and that basically means that you can style your list as you like using pure and raw CSS, hence the reason why there are no instructions on how to do it since each site is unique and the layout requirements change with each one of them.

    Hi Héctor,

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    Even if I hide the text, how would I display the images in 2 columns with multiple rows? If this is a sort of customization you could quote me for I'd be interested in getting a quote from you.

    Thanks!

    I'd like to help out, unfortunately I'm a bit short of time right now. If you don't mind waiting for a bit, I should be available next week.

    Hi Héctor,

    That's totally fine. Just let me know what the cost would be as I am doing this project with a friend and I'd have to know what the cost would be.

    I appreciate you taking the time from your schedule to look at this post and to answer.

    Have a great week!

    Hi Héctor,

    We got it to work with some custom CSS.

    In case anyone wants to style the posts with thumbnails only, you can add this code into a custom.css file and place in the root of your theme file:

    .widget.popular-posts li {
        display:inline;
        padding:0;
        margin:0;
        background:transparent;
        border:0;
        }
    
    .wpp-post-title {
        display:none;
        position:absolute;
        left:-999em;
        }
    
    .widget.popular-posts img {
        width:90px;
        height:90px;
        margin:0 5px 5px 0;
        display:block;
        padding:0;
        border:0;
        max-width:none;
        float:left;
        }
