Thanks for getting back to me. The Plugin version is 1.0.2 and the theme version is 1.1.1 but I am using the Child theme (version 1.0.0). For some reason the WordPress Popular Posts stats says – Sorry. No data so far? I am using version 3.3.3. The trending posts aren’t showing up at all now.
Re: #2, sorry – I meant the trending post slider, not the main slider.
