YOURLS Page – Popular Links

As requested by this comment I have published the code for the Popular Links plugin to appear on the public side.


Copy this code and save it as popularlinks.php

Upload it to the /pages directory of your YOURLS installation.

It will appear on your site as YOURLS-SITE/popularlinks

As with the plugin, you can customize it by editing the values

> show_top(1000,5);

1000 means the number of days you are selecting from the database

5 means the number of links you are selecting.

YOURLS Plugin – Popular Links (1.7+)

UPDATE: This plugin can be public by making it a page


The YOURLS plugin, originally posted here, I have updated to be compatible for YOURLS 1.7.

The plugin shows and admin page of the most popular links created in 1,30,365, and 1000 days on a YOURLS site

Download here, save as plugin.php and upload to YOURLS_DIRECTORY/user/plugins/popular-links

IMPORTANT:  Make sure to remove/overwrite the old version of Popular Links if you have it on your server.


At the bottom of the plugin, you can edit the values

> show_top(1000,5);

1000 means the number of days you are selecting from the database

5 means the number of links you are selecting.

  • Imgur Uploader – Upload images & .gifs to imgur with two clicks of the mouse.
