Support » Plugin: Jetpack Post Views » Plugin cant be activated (20.000 posts on site)

  • Hello!
    I think the plugin should not try to retrieve anything during activation.
    I have a website with 20k+ posts and while trying to activate, it always times out.
    I think you should simply add a “pre-loader” in the plugin setup page, where admin can decide how many posts to check for views at a time, and then launch the view checker… otherwise it will keep crashing.

    That sounds like a good idea with such a site as yours.

    For your site, how would you be using the plugin? Would you want all 20k+ posts indexed, or only a subset of them indexed? Would you want to specify which posts were loaded via the pre-loader or just specify the number to load and which posts don’t matter?

    Thanks for the suggestion and your help.

    Yeah I’d need all of the posts to eventually save their jetpack views in their post meta, cos then we can cache it/manipulate the number/sort the column.

    I dont think that with that many posts I need to be able to select which ones to load, nor going by category, there’s just too many anyway…

    I think that some kind of batch load (with n. posts) could run, in different processes, so it doesnt get killed by server.
    OR cron job?
    I dont mind either personally.

    Thank YOU! 🙂

    +1 for this – client has a huge site with lots of posts – plugin crashes when I try to enable. Would love to be able to specify how many posts to update at once, and how frequently to update. We really only need stats updated every few days..
