Please note: Every Ranking system should have a page, which should be selected from the dropdown.

You need to select Condition for Rankings which can be for Most Views/Comments/Votes and this condition works along with Minimal score.

At the same time consider that if Condition = Most Views/Comments/Votes

Trending shows post with Most Condition for a 24 hours

Hot shows posts with Most Condition for a 7 days

Popular shows posts with Most Condition for a 30 days

For example: If you selected Condition = Views Popular => score = 5

Then in Popular page users will see posts which have at least 5 views within 1 month. Also the posts will have that Popular Badge on post featured image in listing page. The same works for Hot and Trending.
