  • Custom themes – Out of the box, WordPress Popular Posts includes some themes so you can style your popular posts list (see Widget Themes for more details).
  • Verwende dein eigenes Layout! – WPP ist flexibel genug, damit du das Aussehen deiner populären Beiträge anpassen kannst! (siehe Anpassen des WPP-HTML-Markups (engl.) und Anpassen des Designs von WordPress Popular Posts (engl.) für mehr Informationen.)

Andere Funktionen

  • 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.
  • 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_get_views() template tag allows you to retrieve the views count for a particular post. For usage and instructions, please refer to the Installation section.
  • LocalizationTranslate WPP into your own language.
  • WP-PostRatings support – Show your visitors how your readers are rating your posts!

PSA: do not use the classic WordPress Popular Posts widget with the new Widgets screen!

The classic WordPress Popular Posts widget doesn’t work very well / at all with the new Widgets screen introduced with WordPress 5.8.

This new Widgets screen expects WordPress blocks instead of regular WordPress widgets. If you’re using the WordPress Popular Posts widget on your block-based Widgets screen please consider replacing it with the WordPress Popular Posts block instead – it has the same features as the „classic“ widget and will likely end up replacing it entirely in the future.

Bjorn from wplearninglab.com was kind enough to create a video explaining how to use the new block for all of you visual learners:

If for some reason you prefer using the „classic“ WordPress Popular Posts widget with WordPress 5.8 and beyond please install the Classic Widgets plugin.

WordPress Popular Posts kann auf drei unterschiedliche Arten verwendet werden:

  1. As a widget: simply drag and drop it into your theme’s sidebar and configure it or, if you’re using the Block Editor, you can also add it to your posts and pages.
  2. As a template tag: you can place it anywhere on your theme with wpp_get_mostpopular().
  3. Per Shortcode (engl.), so dass du sie in einen Beitrag oder eine Seite einbetten kannst.

Schaue auf jeden Fall auch im Wiki (engl.) vorbei, dort findest du noch mehr Informationen!

Here are Some Suggestion:- If you use the resource of server to count the post views, why not provide an option to show post views in post or page list in dashboard. We know there are many other plugin to do this, but if i don't want to use any other plugin, because you can understand well, more plugin more space and server resources. So please if it is possible to provide a button to display post and page views in WP dashboard. Thanks "Hector Cabrera" for providing so powerful and optimized plugin. From India - "Mohit Yadav".

This plugin delivers as it says. It's both easy to use, and easy to extend on the backend if that suits you as well.

It's been a while since I used this plugin, but to sort out the 'trending posts' on your website, there's nothing to touch it. It's also given me a lot more work to do, as viewing those older trending posts, there are some errors in video downloads that I would never have noticed unless something like this plugin pointed me towards them. Thanks for both the plugin, and for the forced post and page evergreen schedule!

This plug-in can be used with the default features with great results. It is also very customisable for those that know a little about CSS. Don't worry if You're not a CSS expert because the support documentation gives some great information and pointers. I have looked at 6 similar plug-ins and this is by far the best. I'd like to say thank you to the author 🙂
