Description

WordPress Popular Posts is a highly customizable widget that displays the most popular posts on your blog.

Main Features

* **Multi-widget capable**. That is, you can have several widgets of WordPress Popular Posts on your blog - each with its own settings!

* **Time Range** - list those posts of your blog that have been the most popular ones within a specific time range (eg. last 24 hours, last 7 days, last 30 days, etc.)!

* **Custom Post-type support**. Wanna show other stuff than just posts and pages?

* Display a **thumbnail** of your posts! (*see the [FAQ section](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/faq/) for technical requirements*).

* Use **your own layout**! Control how your most popular posts are shown on your theme.

* **WPML** support!

* **WordPress Multisite** support!

Other Features

* Check the **statistics** on your most popular posts from wp-admin.

* Order your popular list by comments, views (default) or average views per day!

* **Shortcode support** - use the [wpp] shortcode to showcase your most popular posts on pages, too! For usage and instructions, please refer to the [installation section](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/installation/).

* **Template tags** - Don't feel like using widgets? No problem! You can still embed your most popular entries on your theme using the *wpp_get_mostpopular()* template tag. Additionally, the *wpp_gets_views()* template tag allows you to retrieve the views count for a particular post. For usage and instructions, please refer to the [installation section](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/installation/).

* **Localizable** to your own language (*See the [FAQ section](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/faq/) for more info*).

* **[WP-PostRatings](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-postratings/) support**. Show your visitors how your readers are rating your posts!

**WordPress Popular Posts** is now also on [GitHub](https://github.com/cabrerahector/wordpress-popular-posts)!

Installation

1. Download the plugin and extract its contents.

2. Upload the `wordpress-popular-posts` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory.

3. Activate **WordPress Popular Posts** plugin through the "Plugins" menu in WordPress.

4. In your admin console, go to Appearance > Widgets, drag the WordPress Popular Posts widget to wherever you want it to be and click on Save.

5. If you have a caching plugin installed on your site, flush its cache now so WPP can start tracking your site.

6. Go to Appearance > Editor. On "Theme Files", click on `header.php` and make sure that the `` tag is present (should be right before the closing `` tag).

7. (optional, but recommended for large / high traffic sites) Enabling [Data Sampling](https://github.com/cabrerahector/wordpress-popular-posts/wiki/7.-Performance#data-sampling) and/or [Caching](https://github.com/cabrerahector/wordpress-popular-posts/wiki/7.-Performance#caching) is recommended. Check [here](https://github.com/cabrerahector/wordpress-popular-posts/wiki/7.-Performance) for more.

That's it!

USAGE

WordPress Popular Posts can be used in three different ways:

1. As a [widget](http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Widgets): simply drag and drop it into your theme's sidebar and configure it.

2. As a template tag: you can place it anywhere on your theme with [wpp_get_mostpopular()](https://github.com/cabrerahector/wordpress-popular-posts/wiki/2.-Template-tags#wpp_get_mostpopular).

3. Via [shortcode](https://github.com/cabrerahector/wordpress-popular-posts/wiki/1.-Using-WPP-on-posts-&-pages), so you can embed it inside a post or a page.

Make sure to stop by the **[Wiki](https://github.com/cabrerahector/wordpress-popular-posts/wiki)** as well, you'll find even more info there!
