    Hi would like to check can I disable image cropping. Also I would like to check the popular post view to no limit instead of capturing daily view? Thanks.

    Hi there,

    would like to check can I disable image cropping.

    Nope, there’s currently no way to do that using the settings provided. You’d need some custom coding for this, see How can I use my own HTML markup with WordPress Popular Posts?

    Also I would like to check the popular post view to no limit instead of capturing daily view?

    Sorry, I didn’t understand this. What do you mean exactly?

    Hi thanks for the prompt response. Currently it is capturing the views daily and showing it. But after next day it will refresh and no post will be showing unless user click into different post then it will starting showing again.

    The image it auto crop and resolution drop so there is no other solution except custom html markup?

    I am using this to filter all views instead of daily

    function custom_wpp_update_postviews($postid) {
        // Accuracy:
        //   10  = 1 in 10 visits will update view count. (Recommended for high traffic sites.)
        //   30  = 30% of visits. (Medium traffic websites.)
        //   100 = Every visit. Creates many db write operations every request.
    
        $accuracy = 100;
    
    		if ( function_exists('wpp_get_views') && (mt_rand(0,100) < $accuracy) ) {
    			// Remove or comment out lines that you won't be using!!
    			update_post_meta(
    				$postid,
    				'views_total',
    				wpp_get_views($postid, 'all', true)
    			);
    			
    		}
    	}
    	add_action('wpp_post_update_views', 'custom_wpp_update_postviews');
    

    and for the display

     <?php
                        $args = array(
                            'post_type' => 'articles',
                            'offset' => 1,
                            'stats_views' => 1,
                            'limit' => 7,
                            'wpp_start' => '<ol class="wpp-list" start="2">',
        					'wpp_end' => '</ol>',
                            'meta_key' => 'views_total'
                        );
    
                        wpp_get_mostpopular($args);
                    ?>
    

    Please advise thanks Hector

    If all you want to do is to display popular articles listed by total views count then you don’t really need all that code 😛 You can just use the range parameter and set its value to all in order to have the wpp_get_mostpopular() function list the most viewed articles since you first installed the plugin:

    $args = array(
        'range' => 'all',
        'post_type' => 'articles',
        'offset' => 1,
        'stats_views' => 1,
        'limit' => 7,
        'wpp_start' => '<ol class="wpp-list" start="2">',
        'wpp_end' => '</ol>'
    );
    wpp_get_mostpopular($args);

    Also, I removed meta_key from the $args array since it isn’t a valid parameter.

    Thank you. Back to the image issue, is there any way to resolve the resolution issue? I am using a Image Regenerate & Select Crop plugin. Does that have conflict to the thumbnail image generated to the resolution drop? Please advise. Thanks.

    Yep. As I suggested earlier, you’ll need some custom coding for this.

    WPP’s thumbnails -as you already know- are always cropped. You can however have the plugin display custom images, like this for example.

    Also the views is not increasing when i click on the post

    Hard to say what’s going on without more details. Maybe reading these FAQs can get you on the right direction:

    If none of these apply in your case you’ll have to share some more details about your setup so I can actually help:

    • Site URL?
    • Active plugins?
    • Settings you’re using with WPP?
    • Any other info that might be relevant.

    How do i share the settings?

    Take a screenshot (or several if needed), upload it somewhere (like prnt.sc, postimages.org, etc), then share the link here so I can see.

    You have a caching plugin and a security plugin installed on your site so as I suggested above please read the linked FAQs to make sure WPP can work normally on your website.
