Just updated the latest version and I’m using the widget.
In the admin it shows me there is data, but it’s not displaying in on the website. I deleted the widget and put it back, and it seems the issue is where I specify which category to pull data from (I’ve definitely got the correct category!).
In the admin stats, there’s no filtering by category (not yet at least) so you get everything unfiltered. That’s why there’s a difference in the results.
Anyways, where you filtering by category before the upgrade? Was it working then?
Sadly that’s not the problem. I realise it shows all pages and all categories in the admin, but many were posts from the category I want to show (I only have two cats!).
I was filtering by category. I changed nothing, just updated the app and suddenly it says there’s no data.
I’m experiencing the same thing at http://www.seriousfiver.com in the sidebar. I have the code placed in my sidebar.php file, never changed anything, and now the popular videos doesn’t work.
Oddly enough, it works if I change it from “range=weekly” to “range=all”. Any other range than “all” doesn’t work for the video category, though it works for my photo category.
How odd, thanks for the input guys. Will look into it.
While I’m on it, please consider downgrading to v2.3.2.
Also, please add some more details to your reports: are you using the widget? the [wpp] shortcode? Sorting by views, comments?
Instead of downgrading, I’ve decided to go with CoryDobson’s solution. It gets the site looking right without me having to change back all my CSS files.
This is what my code looks like
<?php if (function_exists('wpp_get_mostpopular')) wpp_get_mostpopular("range=all&order_by=views&cat=6&post_type=post&thumbnail_width=280&thumbnail_height=100&stats_comments=0"); ?>
If I change the range from anything but “all” it comes up with no date yet, though the following code works, for the photos category on my site.
<?php if (function_exists('wpp_get_mostpopular')) wpp_get_mostpopular("range=daily&order_by=views&cat=5&post_type=post&thumbnail_width=280&thumbnail_height=100&stats_comments=0"); ?>
Hope that helps
Thank you, Cory!
I think I’ve nailed the bug. Please download this version of the plugin, test it and post your feedback here. If everything’s alright then I’ll re-upload v2.3.3 with this change for everyone.
I tried out the new file, it ended up putting only posts from the photo category under the “popular videos”. I didn’t change the code in my template.
I reverted back to the old version again.
Thank you for your feedback. By looking at your code, I see there’s only one category (6) there. Are the posts under category 6 also in category 5? Otherwise, that code will only retrieve posts from category 6. Am I missing something?
Category 5 is the photos category, Category 6 is the Video category. They are either or, never both. The top list on my sidebar should show from category 5 (photos) which it does, the bottom should show just category 6 (which it doesn’t on the upgrade).
All works fine on the previous version.
Hope that clarifies.
Alright, thanks for the clarification Cory. So, if I understand correctly, you’re using
wpp_get_mostpopulartwice: one time to list posts from photos category, and another to get posts from video category. The former works, the latter shows no results. Am I right?
[Off-topic]BTW, I really like what you did with the plugin! Nice design![/Off-topic]
I am also experiencing the same issue. I am using the widget in a sidebar, with time-range of “Last 30 Days” with filter post-type, “posts”. Before the update, I had no categories defined under the filter. But when I saw the “no data yet” error message after the update, I defined the categories from which I wish the plugin to check for posts, and still this did not resolve the issue.
I am also experiencing some issues with the latest update; is the version just prior to this latest update still available? I would like to revert back until the bugs are all resolved.
Thank you, and thank you for this great plug-in!
@JMDezigns: you mean post-type post (singular form), right?
