[resolved] Alex King's Popularity Contest (6 posts)

    I have Alex King's Popularity Contest 1.2.1 installed -- the latest download -- but I'm having a little trouble with it. It's listing the most popular Posts in the sidebar and in the admin interface, but not listing any pages at all, which it's supposed to do. Since I'm mainly using Pages on the site I'm putting together I'd really like to get this to work.

    The plugin *is* measuring the popularity of the Pages and is listing the % on each Page, but if it ain't a post it won't show up in the sidebar.

    Does anyone have any experience of this? I'm kinda hoping Alex is hanging out here and might have a suggestion. I may have overlooked something really obvious.

    Did you read the FAQ section of the README?

    Hi Alex.

    Yes, I've read the readme several times, plus anything I could find on your site and in this forum, but didn't see anything that seemed relevant to having only posts show up in the "most popular" list in the sidebar. Am I missing something?

    The code I have in my sidebar is:

    <?php akpc_most_popular($limit=5); ?>

    I re-read the section I was thinking of and I guess it isn't as explicit as I thought. Posts will be included in lists in a future release.

    Presumably you mean the bit that says "pages are counted too. They will be included in special reports in a future release."

    I took that to mean that pages would be counted in the "most popular" lists along with posts, and that a new update would allow you to list pages separately, but I could see how you might have meant something else.

    I don't want to hassle you, but I wondered if you had an idea of when the update would be released? I'd really like to have a list of my most popular pages. The Top 10 Posts/Views plugin may do what I'm after, although I'm not sure if it's still supported.

    Just for anyone else who's in the same situation and wants to list the most popular pages (as well as posts), the Top 10 Posts/Views plugin works just fine. It's easy to set up and customize, especially since there's an archive of coments on the site that contains what would probably be the most common questions.

    But thanks anyway, Alex, and I look forward to playing with other of your plugins. I'm grateful to all you plugin developers!
