Support » Plugin: Page View Count » Counter adds 2 views for every one actual post view

  • Resolved tiffont


    I had this problem before and after the update. When ever a post is viewed on my site ( the counter jumps up various increments whether I refresh the page or go back to the home page. Ir doesn’t correctly ad 1 view per 1 post view. I’m not sure if its something that I did or if the coding is acting weird. I really wanna use this plugin but its useless to me if it doesn’t count properly.

    Need your help to solve this issue – we use the plugin on over 100 client sites and have never seen the issue of double counts – so do not know what the bug is and obviously can’t know what it is in your install that causes it?

    Need wp-admin and ftp access to a site that is having the issue to be able to fix it. If you would like to help out please set me up a temp wp-admin access to you install and a ftp access account and use the Contact Us Page form on the a3rev site to send those creds to us – here is the link

    Look forward to working with you to solve this issue – thanks – Steve

    Thank you very much for the wp-admin and ftp access to your site – It has enabled us to find and fixed the bug.

    In a recent update to the WordPress SEO plugin they have added this code which causes Page View Count to register duplicate Counts when no meta data is entered – in other words when the WordPress SEO plus auto gets the Meta from the content

    // og:description is still blank so grab it from get_the_excerpt()
    if ( !$ogdesc )
        $ogdesc = strip_tags( get_the_excerpt() );

    We have created a workaround and released in version – please run the update when you see it in your wp-updates so that you have this code in your plugin.

    add_filter( 'wpseo_opengraph_desc', array( 'A3_PVC', 'fixed_wordpress_seo_plugin' ) );

    Thank you for your help in fixing this issue. Please be sure to delete the access accounts you set up for us – or at least change the password – that is just good security protocol.

    All the best – Steve
