    The “Top Posts & Pages by views” widget shows most-viewed posts from 24-48 hours of stats.

    But, I want it to show the most-viewed posts in history, is there any other widget to do that?

    The blog I need help with is soiwalkers.wordpress.com.

    However, you have access to your stats page and you can post that into a text widget and display it on your blog if you think there’s some sort of reader benefit in doing so.

    I don’t even post my top posts and pages widget as they already have traffic so I can’t see the value in promoting them. Instead I encourage traffic flow by featuring posts and pages that have good information in them but the readers have overlooked.

    Is there anyway to hyperlink the text-widget?

    Or is there any way to add all posts from a category to the sidebar?

    Timethief, you have a point in not promoting popular posts cause they are already popular. But I wonder if it encourages people to click through more.

    Is there a way to add those nice little thumbnails like Top Posts and Pages has in text widget?

    You would have to add the little thumbnails “by hand” yourself. There is not automatic way to do it. Easiest way is to use a draft post to arrange your thumbnails and make them link to the posts of your choice. Then copy/paste the code into a text widget.
