    Hi there! Our Top Posts and Pages widget uses the most recent 48 hours of your stats to show your most popular posts and pages and is not able to set a custom time frame.

    However, there are many other options out there for displaying your top posts and pages. Feel free to choose one that suits you best:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php

    That link doesn’t work.

    Also I want to change the jetpack widget to display a longer timeframe or to display for all time, not install another widget. I don’t have enough visitors for popular posts otherwise. Since Jetpack is so huge I would rather not install another plugin, and I did look for one quite extensively before finding Jetpacks one.

    Whether you’re big or small I think it would be beneficial to have an “of all time” or even a weekly/monthly option. Not every site is huge and high traffic. Sometimes sites are portfolios with few visitors or personal blogs with only family visiting.

    You could add the following snippet to your theme’s functions.php, or to a functionality plugin:

    function jeherve_top_posts_timeframe() {
        return '30';
    }
    add_filter( 'jetpack_top_posts_days', 'jeherve_top_posts_timeframe' );

    It would change the timeframe from 2 to 30 days, which might fit your needs a bit better. You can, of course, extend that number to include even more days, however I must warn you that when you extend that timeframe, it takes a bit longer for your site to query our Stats API to retrieve data about your posts. That’s why we limited the widget to 2 days by default, to avoid performance issues.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you so much Jeremy! That helps a lot! 😀
