How to Add the WordPress Popular Posts Widget to Your Website
The third and final part of the guide to the WordPress Popular Posts plugin will focus on adding the widget for the plugin onto the sidebar of your website.
Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 2) From the Admin Panel, scroll down to Appearance and choose Widgets from the dropdown menu.
Step 3) On the Available Widgets section, scroll down the page until you find the WordPress Popular Posts widget.
Step 4) When you click on the widget, you will be given a list of areas to move it to (depending on the number of sidebars you have as part of your WordPress Theme) and hit the Add Widget button. Alternatively, you can drag and drop it into place.
Step 5) When the widget is in the Widget Area, a list of settings will appear, including Title, how many posts you would like to show in the sidebar, how to sort the results (date, no. of views, etc.) and more. Set these, and then hit the Save button.
Step 6) Head to the Homepage of your website to see your WordPress Popular Posts displayed in your sidebar, as shown below.
This concludes the WordPress Popular Posts plugin guide.
