== Frequently Asked Questions ==

* *I've got posts with better stats (comments, pageviews, etc.) than those listed by your plugin. What's wrong?*

Every time a post is viewed by someone (except you), it is registered by *Wordpress Popular Posts* and its pageviews count is updated automatically. Chances are that it has not been viewed by anyone since you installed *Wordpress Popular Posts* on your blog - so don't worry, *Wordpress Popular Posts* will take note of it once someone checks any of your posts.

* *How can I style the small tag where comments count, pageviews, etc. (the "stats tag") are displayed?*

I have included a small stylesheet file called wpp.css that you can use to style the **stats tag** to your liking.
