Since we don't have this particular feature automated on our new site here yet, and many of you have asked me about it via email (as well as some other features you miss on the old site, which are currently being worked on), I figured I'd manually create the list myself, until we have an automated solution.
I'm referring to the Most Popular Recent posts widget, which, on the old site, lists the 10 to 20 most popular posts, based solely on the number of comments received, going back the previous 7 to 10 days. Of course, it changes from day to day. The feature used to sit in the right-hand column on the old site, and I'm working on making it a constant in the left column on this new site.
But for now, I'll just post an updated list daily, as I've done below. So, here ya go; each is a live link (I'm only going with the top 10 over the last week or so; it'll take me awhile to gather another 10, to make 20):
