Just pinpointed a small bug in the admin section of the plugin (v2.3.4). Last 30 days is showing the data from Last 24 hours, there’s a missing single quote in there that’s causing the problem.
To avoid the hassle of another update, the fix is quite simple: download v2.3.4, extract admin.php to your desktop and upload it to your wp-content/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/ directory to replace the one in there.
I noticed about three days ago that the ‘popular’ posts on our site have gone haywire … only one of the most recent popular posts is rating, and several old pages which don’t get that many views are showing up.
In the WPP widget, we had “Most read, past 7 days”, and this also has gone haywire … ie, articles with hundreds of views not showing up, in favour of older pages (not posts). I’ve had to replace this temporarily with “Most read, past 30 days” to get a halfway sensible count of posts.
On reading through this forum I went back to versions 2.3.2, 2.3.3. and 2.3.4 and tested in turn, to no avail. Deleted cache also.
It’s worked fine up til a few days ago … any suggestions??
