There may be a new version in the future but for now…nothing.

Upload the hitcounter plugin to your blog, activate it, win.

Place <?php userViews(); ?> in your template files to output the number of views by humans.
The default output will be <span class="views">Views: 100</span>

If you want to override the output use <?php userViews('<div class="viewers">Wow, ',' people read this.</div>'); ?>
Which would output: <div class="viewers">Wow, 100 people read this.</div>

if you need to do that.

Thanks to Tom Chippendale for a few pointers here and there.

Initial release.

Added icons to represent users and robots.
Added column to post edit page to show views counts.

Add options page to allow view counts to be switched on or off on the post listings page.
