Amazing plugin - and so many options!
By ,

Works great, easy to set up - and very flexible.

I understand that many options might deter some users - I myself am sometimes overwhelmed by such plugins. But his plugin has exactly what it takes for a popular posts plugin - you'd be surprised how much control you gain on the lists when using this plugin, and all the features are actually essential, at least in my view, and you can turn them off very easily.

ok

finally made it work with the API.
Knowledge base for it exists as said on website, but can't find it.
Except for the fact that information about API and most important functions is hard to find, it's ok. Works as it should. With the API probably the most customizable plugin that provides this feature

Brilliant plugin, took a while to get it dialed in with my site (2,000+ post) but now its working perfectly. Looks great and will surely keep my viewers engaged.

Best of all the developer, AJ actually cares and takes the time to respond. Well played team, well played...

Great technical support by author
By , for WP 4.5.2

I had a problem upgrading from a previous version of the plugin. I contacted Ajay, the plugin's author, and he dialoged with me several times with suggestions on fixing this. His suggestions worked and I'm back in business!. Thanks Ajay for tremendous support! The plugin works like a charm.

Just what I needed

Great plugin and friendly support.

Definitly worth a donation!

Performance Killer. Incompatible with Varnish and Server-Side Caching
By , for WP 4.4.2

This plugin puts a high demand on server resources. It also sets and updates a cookie on every page of your site. This prevents server-side caching/accelerators like Varnish from working. Since the top managed WordPress hosts use Varnish or similar server-side caching, use of this anti-spam method is not a small drawback.

Simply Put: It's a Memory Hog
By , for WP 4.4.1

I have used Top 10 plugin for a few years now. I really like it but there is one big problem. It turns into a memory hog. I can't tell you how many times my host reset my site because it was burning through my resources. I clean things out and a couple months later it starts over again. This is not a good plugin if you are on shared hosting. Even tried caching sites and reducing plugins. P3 profiler stated my plugins were taking 5.75 seconds to load, 3.5 seconds on Top 10 alone. I was at 89% of RAM capacity until I turned the plugin off. I dropped down to 1.6 seconds in plugin loading and 57% RAM usage.

Cool but some options malfunction
By , for WP 4.4

Hi, thanks for the plugin. Positive overall, but the two checkboxes after "post-image" field in the settings, about the thumbnail extraction, malfunction: they only work correctly if both checked. Otherwise I have incorrect images picked without any ability to understand the logic behind. I think there might be a bug, which should be easy to fix though.

Namely, I cannot make the plugin stop picking comment images and use the default image when no post image is set. Should be trivial: set the upper, uncheck the lower checkboxes and it's done. But not...

Wish it appear fixed soon.

Regards,
