    Hi @dulexc,
    Are you tracking this data in your theme currently?

    Then you can just figure out the custom field name that tracks posts and use it like so.

    echo do_shortcode('[ajax_load_more id="popular" post_type="post" meta_key="your_key_name" orderby="meta_value_num"]');

    Replace your_key_name with your custom field name for tracking views.

    For the past 48hrs part. This is tricky with Ajax Load More. Your best bet is to use the alm_query_args filter and use a date_query.

    function my_popular_posts($args){
      $args['date_query'] = array(
             'after' => '2 days ago'
      return $args;
    add_filter( 'alm_query_args_popular', 'my_popular_posts' );

    Hope this works for you.

    Could be very nice with some additional WooCommerce-examples for this. I think it’s pretty hard for many, to understand how you can customize the query (sorting).

    I got it to show the most popular posts by views.

    I still need your help to sort them by the most popular posts in the past 48 hrs.
