    Hi

    Using this with WP 3.4.1 multisite, it breaks the blog. Only half of the page loads (up to the point where the plugin should display its data).

    Hi firmdot,

    Can you share a screenshot of that? Does it display any error?

    Jsut a heads up that your most recent auto-update apparently did not automatically apply whatever database model changes it was supposed to. It broke the web site and unfortunately our client had to notify us, which is never good. I fixed it by deactivating then reactivating the plug-in.

    That should do the trick. There are several changes that should apply on plugin reactivation, it's weird that WordPress didn't refresh plugin's settings after the upgrade.

    Ah, that fixed it. Good to know in case that happens again with any other plugins.

    Just checked your site and I didn't see anything wrong. Widget is displaying the posts as expected so I'm guessing it's working alright now?

    I had the same problem. It broke all of my posts upon upgrade and I have 1500+ posts. I had to deactivate the plugin. Here's the error:

    "WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'day_no_time' in 'field list']
    INSERT INTO wp_popularpostsdatacache (id, day, day_no_time) VALUES (23315, '2012-08-31 14:57:13', '2012-08-31') ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE pageviews = pageviews + 1, day = '2012-08-31 14:57:13', day_no_time = '2012-08-31';"

    Hi rebelguru, please deactivate the plugin and reactivate it again. It should fix the problem in your case.

    That's quite odd and honestly I have no idea of what might be causing it. Can you please tell me:

    # Which version of WordPress are you running?
    # Version and Name of your current theme
    # Currently active plugins on your site

    UPDATE: Guys, if you are using the widget version go to Widgets > WordPress Popular Posts and change the Custom pot type field from Array to post,pages, then click Save. Let me know if that fixes it.

    I ran into the same problem (INSERT error) after today's update, using WordPress 3.4.1

    Deactivating and reactivating seems to have resolved this issue for me at this point.

    Yes, the new version of the plugin is introducing a new database table field that should be created after the update progress is done. For some reason, WordPress doesn't seem to be creating this new field when reactivating the plugin again.

    The workaround for that -until I figure out why the table field isn't being created at reactivation- is to manually deactivate and reactivate the plugin.

    UPDATE: plugin's core has been updated again with a minor bugfix regarding the new options available. Since it was only one bug, the plugin version remains at 2.3.0. You can either redownload the plugin again in 30 minutes or simply go to Widgets > WordPress Popular Posts and clic Save to update the settings.

    @El Chapuzas: son las cosas que suceden cuando implementas cosas nuevas y no pruebas lo suficiente antes de publicar la actualización :P Aún así, se arregla fácil jeje

    I tried updating the settings in Widgets > WordPress Popular Posts and deactivated & reactivated the plugin to no avail. Still got "Sorry. No data so far."

    I am using widget version. The shortcode version on pages appears to be working when I tested it.

    Hello, guys!
    I got the same database error after updating plugin. I tried to deactivate and reactivate it several times but had the same problem.
    Here's the screenshot https://dl.dropbox.com/u/291993/BDs4U9zXUMM.jpg
    At the moment I completely deleted the plugin but I still have this error. How can it be?
    I should notice that when I'm logged in as admin everything's fine but all guests and me after logging out got this error message.
    Please revert!

    Hi Héctor,

    I have some problems with thumbnails not showing. I changed wordpress-popular-posts/cache to chmod 777. Disabled the plugin as mentioned above. But it does not help.

    Do you have any suggestion?

    Meanwhile, is there a possibility to download the previous version? That worked fine.

    Kind regards,

    CB

    Just a quick reply, version 2.2.1 works. Updating to 2.3.0 breaks the images.

    again using 2.2.1, but i hope to see 2.3.0 working as you have made some great modifications.

    keep up the good work!

    I upgraded to the latest version of WPP. it immediately broke my site. I deactivated the plugin. The site started working again. Now, when I try to post a link to facebook, this is what I see. Something is severely broken here.

    <​div id='error'> <​p class='wpdberror'> [Unknown column 'day_no_time' in 'field list'] <​/p> <​/div><​strong>WordPress database error:<​/strong><​code>INSERT INTO wp_popularpostsdatacache (id, day, day_no_time) VALUES (13341, '2012-08-31 22:53:20', '2012-08-31') ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE pag…

    I re-downloaded 2.2.1 and the problem persists. Please help me.

    Kletsky, after I deleted the plugin I had the same thing but about 30 minutes later the error disappeared.

    Maybe a caching issue? I went back to 2.2.1. We'll see what happens... If the previous version doesn't work, I'll try deleting and waiting. I just wish the new version worked.

    Thanks!

    How To Solve WordPress Database Error?

    "Maybe a caching issue"?
    Kletsky, I tried clearing the cache, and that did nothing to resolve the problem.

    I also tried to deactivate and re-activate the plug-in, and it did nothing to resolve it either.

    When I use only one widget, it 'appears' to be fine. When I re-introduce the 2nd Popular Post widget back into the site, I am getting this:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare sorter() (previously declared in /homepages/35/d215599516/htdocs/original-republican/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/wordpress-popular-posts.php:831) in /homepages/35/d215599516/htdocs/original-republican/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/wordpress-popular-posts.php on line 831

    "I went back to 2.2.1."

    Kletsky, how did you get back to version 2.2.1?

    Thank you.
