Harper - Trending Now Footer
The Trending Now area will display at the bottom of all posts and pages (except WooCommerce pages).
- Go to WordPress > Appearance > Widgets.
- Drag a WordPress Popular Posts widget into the Trending Now Footer widget area.
- Configure the settings as shown below:
For the "Display Post Thumbnail" settings: When you first add the widget to the widget area, some of the image settings shown above are hidden. Put a checkmark in the "Display Post Thumbnail" box and save the widget. Once it's saved, you'll be able to select the "Set Size Manually" option and input 400px width and 550px height.
Please note: It can take 24 to 48 hours for the Popular Posts widget to collect enough data to output your popular posts. Until then, you may see a "no content available" message.
