Please note that Most Popular Content Lists are for use on r5 (responsive) sites only. This module type does not function on classic sites.
This module is meant to replace the "Popular Articles" article list module. The Most Popular Content List module has the same essential functionality as the classic Popular Articles module, but allows for a greater degree of flexibility in the styling of the list on your site. It also more accurately gauges the content's popularity.
