It hides the featured sign when an article is shown on a page of featured articles.

The default signs are based on Bootstrap. It supports Bootstrap 4 and 5. Thus it is compatible with Joomla 4. It displays signs without various colors on Joomla 3.

A numeric value of the field for the "Popular" sign, which is called "proportion", must be greater than a value of the corresponding field for the "Most Hit" sign.

The plugin works only for published articles that are specified by parameters that are grouped as "Article Selection". For example, when determining to show or hide the popular sign, it uses hit (read or open) counts of the selected articles only.

If you want signs which have a unique design, we recommend you use parameter fields for custom signs and CSS. In other words, you don't need to hack or modify the plugin files.
