WordPress Popular Posts is a highly customizable widget that displays the most popular posts on your blog.
This plugin is exceptional.
I've been using it for years and only had one slight problem that the author quickly fixed. Thanks for contributing such a great plugin to the WordPress community!
I'm not a programmer, but it seems that this plugin should be updated more frequently. Since using 3.8.1, I noticed what I believe to be a HUGE bug...
Every view of a post raises the count by 17 views (usually) or even more.
I realized this after activating the plugin when in only an hour my views were totaling in the many hundreds -- and after investigating, I found this anomaly.
Unfortunately this renders the plugin useless unless updated and fixed.
This plugin is useful, but every time there is a new version, every time there is a new wordpress core, we see new bugs like pages wich cannot be displayed because of that plugin...
It's unclear to us why such a small function can cause that much damage... Therefore, I cannot stress out loudly enough that this plugin is useful, but is so poorly coded that it is imbricated way too much to other functions and thus, generate errors at every version change.
And not to speak about translations...

Really nice plugin. Works like a charm and is pretty flexible.
Not flexible enough for my needs though, AFAICS. I need to fetch additional information about each post and filter the result according to specific custom taxonomies along with the loop. Would love that the plugin allow to do that.
But if you have a standard setup, you should be fine.
I like this Plugin. It works great and is easy to configure and to use.
Only one little thing:
I know the developer wrotes that the plugin doesn't official support multi sites but the plugin works great on my multisite installation but i had to crate the databases manually because the plugin only creates the db for the main site not for the other sites.
This plugin is a very versatile popular post plugin and very well maintained. Highly Recommend!
