From what I can tell, the Top Posts widget only factors in the past two days, which to me seems pointless. The Top Posts widget ought to be customizable to collect data from whatever time period we want to consider – past month, past year, etc. It seems like such a no-brainer, I’m surprised WP isn’t already doing this.
It seems that many folks would prefer this type of result from this widget. They’ve suggested that I post my comments here.
