I have been trying out several popular posts plugin but I can't seem to find the right one. I have a page where I want to insert popular posts (in between the textual content). I am looking for a plugin that can grab popular posts from categories and supports shortcode (as I want to insert popular posts only in a handful of pages). Any help is highly appreciated.
Edit: The page doesn't contain any sidebar, so I can only display posts within the content area.
