This is a Views summary style plugin. It allows you to embed the results of a View with each argument in the argument summary. You may use a different display; for example, you might build an archive View with a Year+Month argument, that lists the four most popular nodes for each month in the summary, but that lists nodes in date order when you click through to the argument.

- Set the "argument summary" style -- to "Peek Summary"
- Configure the style -- choose a display plugin, set paging
- Example peek_summary output
- The same View, with an argument (not peek_summary output)
- Locate 'Contextual Filters'
- Choose Peek Summary from 'Contextual Filters' > 'When the filter value is not in the URL' > 'Display a summary' > 'Format'
- You'll see a view of sub-views. Click on the gear next to the pager for the group you'd like to limit.
- Enter the max items to display on the pager options.
- You should limit the number of arguments displayed per page (in the argument summary). A View is executed for each argument that is rendered.
- You should use Views' caching, at least for the display you use for peek_summary.
- The peek_summary display must have the same arguments as the argument summary display--they may or may not be the same actual display.
