A simple widget that does exactly what it is supposed to do! If you get this one, you probably also want the Most Posts widget by AndyB as well.
Simple little widget that looks good, not really anything else to say. Just select it and include it on a page and you're done.
Great little addon. I know there's already an option to see most likes, but having it right there on the homepage in a nice graphical representation, along with one of the more advanced likes/rating addon's, helps motivate people to post more. Might not seem like it would make much difference, when you try to imagine it, but I know it works. ;)
