Modules in Joomla: Banners – Most Read Content

This module displays a list of the articles with the highest hit counts—the most popular articles among all visitors. From the Site module type list, select the module with the title Most Read Posts of the Most Read Content module type. The module will open in edit mode, as shown in Figure 8-26.

The title of this module is Most Read Posts (on the front side of the site, the result of this module will be headed with this title). The Category field is used for displaying articles only from specific categories. You specify the category(ies) for the articles you want to see. To specify more than one category, separate them with a comma. The default value for this field is Blog, so keep the default value because you don’t want to see any particular articles.

The Count field is used to specify the number of articles to display in the list. The default value is 5. Keep the default value. The Featured Articles option is used to decide whether to display the featured articles in the list. For this example, set this field to Show.

Output of the Most Read Content module on the web site should appear as shown in Figure 8-27. The title of the module is Most Read Posts, the one that was specified in the module.
