Description

Let's start filling out our widget class.

What's this series about?

This series will walk you through creating a basic Wordpress widget from scratch. The widget will loop through and grab posts based on view count. View count functionality was added to our theme in Part 20 of the Wordpress Theme Tutorial series. If you just want the functionality, you can download a plugin that I put together that uses the same method.
