Popularity Contest Plugin for WordPress

Many of you may have noticed the widget in our sidebar that shows the most popular posts.  It was originally built by Alex King and has been a great for our site.  Recently, we upgraded the Grape Thinking website, and one of the items we updated was this widget.  For our non-tech-savvy readers, please feel free to play around with the links, and I apologize for any tech speak.  If you are interested in using the widget for your own sit, The “cool” functionality we created was:

  1. It’s a widget… this means you can easily place it in the sidebar of a blog.
  2. It’s smarter !  Depending on what page you are looking at, it displays different posts that are relative to what you are reading.  To see this in action, click a tag, category, archive, or an author in the sidebar, and check out the most popular posts within that section.


The widget does require that you are running WordPress 2.5 or higher.  (If you have an older version of wordpress, just leave a comment requesting the older version and I’ll send it, but it needs a little tweaking)

I must extend my thanks to Alex King, and all of the devlopers who have worked on this plugin before me, for without them, I would not have been able to do this.

    Thanks for the great Work!

    But I have a problem: How can I display in my sidebar the top-postst of the last 30 days. I think the function “akpc_most_popular_in_last_month” is the right, but I became still an error.

    Hi E.S. sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I will send you an email so we can discuss the issue in more detail. I’m not sure how you are implementing the code, or the type of error.
