Customize the Widget

In addition to the options available in the widget options, you can use filters to customize the look of the widget on your site:

Display the widget anywhere on your site

You can use the jetpack_top_posts_widget shortcode in posts and pages. You can also add that shortcode directly to your theme template files, like so:

echo do_shortcode( '[jetpack_top_posts_widget]' ); 



Troubleshooting

Why isn’t my Top Post Widget updating?

The lack of updates to the Top Posts Widget may be related to an expired transient on your site not being deleted as it should be. Try installing the following plugin:

Transients Manager
(Please note, this is a third-party plugin. Since we are not the developers/owners, we are unable to troubleshoot it nor are we responsible for updating it).

Once installed, search for any transient that starts with jetpack_restapi_stats_cache_ followed by a random string of characters. After locating it, please delete it and re-check your Top Post Widget.
