It would be great if Minifrontpage could go through all the published articles on the website and then select the top 5 articles with the most hits in the last 7 days.Joomla doesn't record when certain articles get hits. So you can't get it without additional compoment.
However, it appears, if you select 1 week, Minifrontpage checks for only the articles created in the last 7 days and then re-arranges them by hits.
Another problem with this approach is that, even if you have thousands of articles, but have not created a new article in the last week then the module will be empty. Also, let's say you created 2 new articles 3 months ago, choosing 1 day, 3 days, 1 month, or "custom" days of less than 90, will not work, and even if you choose 3 months, the module will only show 2 articles instead of 5 which doesn't look good.The combination of using hits + time range is intended for using in a busy news / portal website, so you can create something like, what news is trending in a day, a week, a month and so on. If your website doesn't update that often then simply use All Time time range, or use a longer custom days such as 900 for 3 years.

I'm a cool paragraph that lives inside of an even cooler modal. Wins!×
