Update 2nd December 2008: The Popularity Contest Widget has now moved to the wordpress.org site. All updates will now appear on the new site.
One thing missing from Popularity Contest is a widget. We created one for this blog, so we thought we may as well share it for everybody else to use too.
Place the Popularity Contest Widget in your plugin directory (remember to strip the .txt off the end) then go to Presentation > Widgets. You can then drag ‘n drop the widget into your sidebar.
You can edit the title and the number of posts to display. Don’t forget to press the Save Changes button.
