This plugin is awesome. It's super lightweight, easy to style with CSS, and does what it says on the tin! In my case I must hide a few product categories from public view since the products are for wholesale customers only. This plugin is very flexible in terms of what product categories you can choose to show or hide in your best sellers list. Superb job!
