List popular posts by total comments

Comment count can be a great indicator of a post’s popularity. You can use the orderby parameter to change how Display Posts sorts the results.

[display-posts orderby="comment_count" order="DESC"]

If you have more social engagement than on-site commenting, you might try listing popular content by share count instead.
