Due to the update we noticed problems with the old 'get_mostpopular()' template tag. Based on the documentation we changed to the 'wpp_get_mostpopular()' template tag. Everything seems to be working correctly except the ability to exclude certain categories. The code we are using is:
<?php wpp_get_mostpopular("cat=-88&order_by=views&range=all&limit=5&stats_comments=0&post_type=post"); ?>
Unfortunately, the posts in category 88 are still showing. Are we doing something incorrectly?
