Trending Articles can be set up by to two criteria:
  • article age, including, for example, articles published within the last 7 days, and; 
  • trend window, the time frame for activities used to determine a trending article.
     

 
For example, display the articles published within the last 7 days, that have received the most comments over the past 5 minutes.
