Jetpack by WordPress.com
Popular post widget (Jetpack) (6 posts)

    I'm using de Popular posts and pages widget included in Jetpack.

    The issue is under the Visibility button there are options for hiding items. IT doesn't seem to work for me.

    I'm trying to hide pages that are constantly cliked (contac me and about this blog) but the widget doesn't seem to respond and they keep appearing.

    Any help will be graetly appreciated.

    Hi there,

    You can't currently exclude pages from the widget. We have an open Trac ticket about this and hope to include something like that soon:


    Feel free to add yourself to it, or add any additional info or patches. Thanks!

    There are three things that would make that popular posts widget better (IMHO):

    1) Being able to select Posts or Pages or Both

    2) Being able to select one or more categories as a filter (as include or exclude)

    3) Being able to define the time period. Right now I think it's a rolling popularity over 24-48 hours? That seems odd to me as only very high traffic sites with many posts per day would benefit from that. For most sites, they'd want to be able to set it to a month, or a year, or from the beginning of the site.

    I tried following your trac link but it was closed, and I found two more tickets that seemed to be the more recent tickets, but they were also closed. I wasn't sure where to post it, so I'm hoping you could either post these suggestions somewhere for me, or send me whatever the most current link it where I can post them.
