I'm starting this discussion as an approach to introduce my plugins and hopefully see them listed in BE's official extensions/widgets area as Ben Amada recommended here.

Well, The title says it all. I couldn't find any extension/widget that fulfills all my requirements for a "Most Popular Posts" widget. So I developed my own, Thanks to BE's flexible plugin architecture.

The LiveViewsCounter extension/widget shows you what posts are currently being read in your blog. Something that I couldn't find any similar one on the web.

So you'll get a total views and a live stats for each post.

Note: To be able to use LiveViewsCount extension/widget, you should set "enableSessionState" value to true in your web.config (line 51 in BlogEngine 1.6.0). Otherwise a runtime error will occur.

You can download Top Posts Extension/Widget at: http://www.devzone.ir/file.axd?file=TopPosts.rar

And LiveViewsCount at: http://www.devzone.ir/file.axd?file=LiveViewsCount.rar

Also, Some screenshots are available at: http://www.devzone.ir/post/1389/09/24/BlogEngine-TopPosts-LiveViews-Widgets.aspx (The article's language is Persian, But screenshots give you the idea of what these extensions are like. Also, the widgets' setting areas are shown).

Any feedback is appreciated.

I added it here in the "Statistical Extensions" section.

I used your own Google translate widget to translate to English.  Here's the direct English translation link for anyone who would like it.
