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
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:
And LiveViewsCount at:
Also, Some screenshots are available at:

Any feedback is appreciated.
