This easy to use WordPress plugin is designed to add a new feature for theme developers. Used on many of my own websites as well as those of my clients, the plugin allows me to quickly add a collection of popular posts to any theme element.

The plugin can easily be used by website owners as a WordPress Widget, adding lists of posts to the Sidebar of a WordPress website.

About the plugin

More advanced users can also call the functionality of the plugin from a WordPress shortcode by adding the code [thisismyurl_easy_popular_posts] to any Post or Page within WordPress.

Finally, theme authors may also take advantage of the plugin by calling the functionality directly from theme files with the code thisismyurl_easy_popular_posts();.

This plugin was originally authored by Christopher Ross.
