I was looking for an extention which allows me to show the most popular articles within a time frame.
I tried to do it with a self made module, but I just failed. This extention really helped me out.
Thanks for such a great and easy customizable extention.
Absolute recommendation!

Am surprised there are not more popular/recent article modules out there. In any case, this one does the job or 2.5 without any fuss or problems. Easy peasy.

In future an option to stop it from loading its stylesheet would be great too.

I just installed this module and i have to say that it's just what i was looking for to have a most read articles module. The developer added the features i needed to display the most popular articles in the last 20 days and not all time articles. 5 stars for me. Thanks!
