If you want to use Wordpress Popular Posts in your templates and not as a widget, simply place `<?php get_mostpopular('Title', number of posts); ?>`, where *title* is how you want to name your popular posts list, and *number of posts* is the amount of entries you want to display on your list (eg. `<?php get_mostpopular('Popular Posts', 10); ?>`).
