    mfa72,
    How were you able to switch back to 2.2.1?

    I think I will do the same.

    Thank you.

    markross1967, I guess you should remove wpp altogether and then reinstall 2.2.1. I don't know what will happen with the database and that's why I haven't still downgraded.

    Thank you rahmis.

    I am not sure where I can DL version 2.21?

    Beyond that, if you do uninstall it altogether, you may lose all of the data associated with it. I'm not completely sure, however.

    You'll find the download link in one of my previous posts in this thread.

    Losing the data worries me too and that's why I've decided to wait.

    Ok, now my blog is right.
    I deactive the plugin and after 30/45 minuits it was ok.

    But I would use the plugin, what do you sugget without losing data stats?

    (waiting?)

    "Losing the data worries me too and that's why I've decided to wait."

    Thanks rahmis! Yes, I don't see how we can downgrade w/o first completely uninstalling the current version.

    I've cleared the cache, to see if that would help, and it did not. Just doing that caused me to lose the views from the last 30 days. I do not want to risk losing my all-time views. Therefore, I am with you - I, too, will wait.

    rahmis,

    I uninstalled the new version, from within The Dashboard, then, installed 2.2.1, manually, and all the data appears to be retained. The data (I believe) is retained in the sql file, separate from the install folder.

    But, please verify that, it you decide to go back to 2.2.1

    Great!

    Now, hopefully the current version will be repaired.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for your feedbacks.

    For those having the Unknown column 'day_no_time' in 'field list error, try deactivating and reactivating the plugin - it should create the missing day_no_time field into the wp_popularpostsdatacache table. If that doesn't help, then please go to your phpmyadmin (or whatever tool your hosting provides to access your databases), select the wp_popularpostsdatacache table (it might be named slightly different if your table prefix is different from the default wp_) and run this query:

    ALTER TABLE wp_popularpostsdatacache ADD day_no_time date NOT NULL default '0000-00-00';

    @markross1967 thanks for reporting the fatal error caused by the sorter() function. Will fix that ASAP.

    how do we solve the "sorry no data so far" issue?

    Hi delfinparis,

    Were you the one who reported that the widget was showing Sorry, no data so far but that the shortcode was working fine? If so, please do the following:

    # Check that your WPP DB tables are being populated with data (this probably is working fine, but just in case)
    # Match your WPP widget's settings with the ones you're using with the shortcode and please report back if it shows posts or not.

    @markross1967: just fixed the bug you reported before. A silly mistake of mine. will push an update again as soon as I verify that everything is working as expected.

    Héctor,
    When you are finished, will you be re-releasing 2.3?

    I'm currently trying to fix the problem with the missing day_no_time field. Once I'm done with that and if no other bugs are reported I will release it as version 2.3.1.

    Update and good news:

    Just found out why the plugin failed to add the new day_no_time table field during the upgrade and I'm working on a quick fix now. Will inform you guys when the 2.3.1 update is available for download.

    Sounds good Héctor!

    Héctor, I had emptied the cache this morning, hoping that would resolve the issues. Is there anyway, whatsoever, to get my 30 day cache back?

    I could, likely, ask my provider to restore my (sql) database to yesterday's date. I think that would work, wouldn't it?

    Yes, then you could just restore your wp_popularpostsdatacache table to your database and get your info back.

    To all: my sincere apologies for all the trouble this update caused you. Once everything gets fixed, I'm sure you guys will really enjoy all the new stuff WordPress Popular Posts has now!

    "Yes, then you could just restore your wp_popularpostsdatacache table to your database and get your info back." Wouldn't the wp_popularpostsdatacache table be restored, automatically, once the database is restored to yesterday's date?

    "To all: my sincere apologies for all the trouble this update caused you." That's OK Héctor! Accidents happen from time to time. :)

    Héctor,
    Or, are you saying that I could just export out the wp_popularpostsdatacache table, once the database is restored, then import it into my current database, that I am now using?

    Héctor, thanks for your efforts. I'll reinstall your plug in with pleasure!

    Yes, that's true. However, I would advice to restore just the wp_popularpostsdatacache table. That way, you would not affect other areas of your blog eg. comments received in the last hours since the update, pingbacks and other activities registered in your database by WordPress or other plugins you may have as well.

    And thank you for your words. I do know that shit happens, I just hate it when it does hehe.

    Alright, the fix is ready and I would appreciate it if anyone is willing to give it a try. Please download version 2.3.1 here. If the feedback is positive, I will push the update into the WordPress Plugins directory.

    Yes, that makes perfect sense. Thank you!

    I will try downloading the new version right now.

    Héctor,
    Now, to exclude categories, in the new version, we have to use dashes, correct? For example: -1,-68,-114,-121,-148,-169,-181,-202,-223,-225,-226,-227

    Yes, that is correct. Just like WordPress does natively, a minus sign in front of the Category ID will exclude it from the listing.

    Keep in mind, though, that if a post belongs to different categories it will still be shown in the list unless you also exclude the other categories it belongs to. Hope that makes sense.

    I had to deactivate and delete the plugin as well. It gave me errors on every single post. Please let us know when this glitch has been resolved.
