Popularity Contest Widget (1.01)

I fixed a minor (but annoying) bug in the Popularity Contest Widget, as identified by Zer0, and described in this thread.

Hopefully now you won’t get the widget title displaying twice! As for the other issues Zer0 mentioned (i.e., that you can only get the most popular 10 items without modifying the plugin), I don’t have any immediate plans to change that, but it’s not hard to change – just look for the line “<?php akpc_most_popular(); ?>“and add whatever you like in the brackets! (obviously you need to know how akpc_most_popular works, but that’s more Alex King’s department…

As usual, visit the project page for more info, or to download the plugin.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t get the widget to work? I use the downloaded text to make popularity.php and upload it to my widgets folder. The plugin is active, but the widget is not showing for me to drag to my sidebar.

    Try right-clicking and saving the php file, see if that works (might be to do with the way windows/unix stores end-of-line characters).
