Best plugin for finding your top posts. The caching mechanism plus the dissection for html output is what makes it amazing!

If I have one suggestion though, please make a shortcode for the direct thumb image. Also if you have time, I hope there's an output of the number of views on the admin posts page, like a column where you see how much this particualr post has been viewed.

It works great, is well documented and the support is really good.

Quite impressed
By , for WP 4.3

Impressed by all the options, specially the 'HTML Markup settings' (which allows you to add your own layout) and all the parameters available

Spectacular Support
By , for WP 4.2.3

Intelligent plugin with plenty of options, but above all, support from the plugin creator was spectacular.

Features for caching, data sampling and ajax, to aid performance
By , for WP 4.2.4

This plugin is pretty good, and I've compared it to an affiliate plugin we use on an eCommerce site that effectively does the same thing with tracking hits on products.

However, that affiliate plugin sucks! It has records from two years ago that take up 230,000 rows in the database.

I found out that WordPress Popular Posts has built-in features to handle this, data sampling. And you can get better performance (with some tradeoffs) using caching and ajax.

The developer seems to be very eager to help people using the plugin, and improve the plugin itself.

Thanks for the great plugin Hector!

We're very impressed with this plugin. Easy to use, and just works. Well done, Hector.

Feature request: offset ... so we can spit out the top 5 popular posts, and then some content, and then the next 5 popular posts ...
