    Hi there,

    That’s just the query – you would still need to build the HTML for the posts, which would include your title, excerpt, featured images etc.. It gets complex if you aren’t familiar with the templates.

    Maybe a plugin like this might help?: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-show-posts/

    If so, this topic should help: https://wpshowposts.com/support/topic/sort-by-custom-field-value/#post-7803


    Tks for reply..but it doesn work..but nvm..could you help me another problem ?

    Sorry for disturb too much.

    function setPostViews($postID) { 
        $count_key = 'post_views_count';
        $count = get_post_meta($postID, $count_key, true);
            $count = 0;
            delete_post_meta($postID, $count_key);
            add_post_meta($postID, $count_key, '0');
            update_post_meta($postID, $count_key, $count);
    function post_like_table_create() {
    global $wpdb;
    $table_name = $wpdb->prefix. "post_like_table";
    global $charset_collate;
    $charset_collate = $wpdb->get_charset_collate();
    global $db_version;
    if( $wpdb->get_var("SHOW TABLES LIKE '" . $table_name . "'") != $table_name)
    { $create_sql = "CREATE TABLE " . $table_name . " (
    id INT(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
    postid INT(11) NOT NULL ,
    clientip VARCHAR(40) NOT NULL ,
    PRIMARY KEY (id))$charset_collate;";
    require_once(ABSPATH . "wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php");
    dbDelta( $create_sql );
    //register the new table with the wpdb object
    if (!isset($wpdb->post_like_table))
    $wpdb->post_like_table = $table_name;
    //add the shortcut so you can use $wpdb->stats
    $wpdb->tables[] = str_replace($wpdb->prefix, '', $table_name);
    add_action( 'init', 'post_like_table_create');

    Hi there,

    Just to confirm, you want to show the one post with the most views? I’m not really sure how you’d do that, unfortunately. I’ll think about it today – will hopefully come up with a solution.

    If I can’t come up with something, you may need to use a service like codeable.io to have it coded.


    Tks..but not just 1 post,i want to show all posts,ordered by likes count descending

    That’s exactly what this should do: https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/page-template-2/#post-968209

    It would list out the posts, and order them by the number specified in that custom post meta.
