Popular Posts not updating (5 posts)

    According to my WordPress.com stats, I recently had a new post take over the 5th most popular spot. However, the previous post is still displayed in the sidebar. I am using the php function instead of the widget. Code I'm using is below. I have also deactivated and activated the WordPress Stats and Popular Posts plugins, but no change.

    <?php WPPP_show_popular_posts('title=<h2>Popular Posts</h2>&show=posts'); ?>

    Any thoughts on what's not working?

    It could be that the wordpress.com stats is counting differently than the php function. There should not be a huge difference but it's possible.

    Hi,

    Check with these options:

    -> upgrade your wordpress and plugin to the latest version
    -> Disable all the plugins and enable it one by one.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    There are lies, damn lies and statistics. This is especially true when using stats software...

    What's with the generic suggestions?

    I strongly agree with esmi, don't trust the stats and just leave it be unless it's that important to you.
