  • 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.

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 van wplearninglab.com was zo vriendelijk om een video te maken waarin werd uitgelegd hoe het nieuwe blok te gebruiken voor alle visuele leerlingen:

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.

Please make sure your site meets the minimum requirements before proceeding.

Automatische installatie

  1. Log in into your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Ga naar plugins > Nieuwe toevoegen.
  3. Typ in het veld “Plugins zoeken” WordPress Popular Posts en druk op enter.
  4. Zoek de plugin in de lijst met zoekresultaten en klik op de knop “Nu installeren”.

Handmatige installatie

  1. Download de plugin en pak de inhoud ervan uit.
  2. Upload de wordpress-popular-posts map naar de /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  3. Activeer de WordPress Popular Posts plugin via het menu “Plugins” in WordPress.

Klaar! Wat is de volgende stap?

  1. Go to Appearance > Widgets, drag and drop the WordPress Popular Posts widget to your sidebar. Once you’re done configuring it, hit the Save button.
  2. Als je een caching plugin geïnstalleerd hebt op je site, schoon dan nu de cache op zodat WPP kan beginnen met het volgen van je site.
  3. If you have a plugin that minifies JavaScript (JS) installed on your site please read this FAQ: Is WordPress Popular Posts compatible with plugins that minify/bundle JavaScript code?
  4. If you have a security / firewall plugin installed on your site, make sure you allow WPP access to the REST API so it can start tracking your site.
  5. Go to Appearance > Editor. Under “Templates”, click on header.php and make sure that the <?php wp_head(); ?> tag is present (should be right before the closing </head> tag).
  6. (Optional but highly recommended) Are you running a medium/high traffic site? If so, it might be a good idea to check these suggestions to make sure your site’s performance stays up to par.

Dat is het!


WordPress Popular Posts kan op drie verschillende manieren worden gebruikt:

  1. Als een widget : versleep het gewoon naar de zijbalk van je thema en configureer het.
  2. As a template tag: you can place it anywhere on your theme with wpp_get_mostpopular().
  3. Via shortcode , zodat je het kan insluiten in een bericht of een pagina.

Make sure to stop by the Wiki as well, you’ll find even more info there!

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 🙂
