I'm trying to create an users list to sort all users by the highest post views for each user, I added $output = array_slice($topuser, 0, 10); to get 10 users when i click load more in the next page, but this is repeating the first 10 users only!

After searching i found is need to add $paged and $offset to get the next page for the next users!

But sorry, I don't know how :(

I'm highly appreciated your time and help.

here's all my code i have done.

authors-ranking-list.php

<?php 
function MostPopularArtistsFullList() {

    global $wp_query;

    $topuser = array();

    $avatar_size = 100;

    $args = array(
        'role__in'     => array('contributor', 'author'),
        'hide_empty'     => '1'
     ); 
    $users = get_users( $args );

    foreach ( $users as $user ) {    

        $query = get_posts( array('author' => $user->ID, 'cat' => '3', 'numberposts' => -1, 'post_type'  => 'post' ));
        $counter = 0;

        $post_count = count_user_posts( $user->ID );

        if ( ! $post_count ) {
            continue;
        }

        // get each post of a user
        foreach ( $query as $post ){
            $views = absint( get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'post_views_count', true ));
            $counter += $views;
        }
        $topuser[] = array( 
        'id' => $user->ID,
        'views' => $counter
        );
        wp_reset_query();
    }

    // function to sort array based on views count
    function sortViews($a, $b) {
        return $b['views'] - $a['views'];
    }
    usort($topuser, 'sortViews'); // sort the array

    $output = array_slice($topuser, 0, 10); // slice the array by limit 10

    $rank=0;
    $rankpostcount=0;
