Widgets »Top Posts & Pages Widget
The Top Posts & Pages Widget allows you to display either your most liked posts or up to ten of your most popular posts in the last 48 hours.
You can access top posts in the last 48 hours without sharing it on your blog by going to Dashboard -> Blog Stats.
Here’s an example of what the widget looks like:
Once you add the widget to your sidebar from Appearance -> Widgets, you’ll see that the settings look like this:
Title – Set the title that will show up above the top posts & pages.
Posts to show – Select how many posts you would like to list, up to a maximum of ten.
Order Top Posts & Pages By – Select if you would like to show top liked posts or the most viewed posts in the last 48 hours.
Display as – Select if you would like to show normal links, links with post images, or a grid of larger post images. If you select image grid, make sure you select an even number of posts to display. If image grid is selected and you have an odd number, it will be rounded up to the next even number (so that it can make a grid).
