    Hello,
    I wonder if there is a way to show full text length of the most viewed post of the week. I placed the shortcode in a dedicated page, and instead of excerpt I like to display the full text of the most viewed post of the last 7 days.
    This is the shortcode where I would like to add the “full text” settings:
    [wpp range=”last7days” limit=1 title_by_words=0 stats_views=0 order_by=”views”]
    The website is under construction.
    Thank you in advance for any advice,
    Elisa

    Hi @elisacerruti,

    Unfortunately the shortcode -as you may have already noticed- doesn’t provide such a feature. You’d need some custom coding work for this.

    Here’s how I would do it:

    1. I’d register a new Content Tag to retrieve the post content (eg. {the_content}).

    2. Then I’d pass said Content Tag ({the_content} from our example above) to the shortcode via the post_html parameter (see Settings > WordPress Popular Posts > Parameters for more details, should be near the end of the page.)

    This would allow the shortcode to render the post content of your top popular post.

    No, I was just making a suggestion of how I would go about it if I was you 😛

    If you’re not familiar with coding in general then of course what I said above won’t make a lot of sense hahaha. In that case, I’d recommend reaching out to the people who’s developing your website and ask them to look into this for you.
