Support » Plugins » [Plugin: W3 Total Cache] GD Star Rating; Popular Post Problem

  • Resolved ioryadragon



    I am using GD Star Rating for articles, and Popular Post, Recently Added, and Recently Popular post which uses the Post-Plugin Library. These plug-ins uses a key pvc_views to update the post views, but W3T doesn’t count this properly on updates, also ratings are not saved.

    What can i do?

    I was thinking not to cache single pages, but not sure how, i added not to cache single.php it doesn’t work, any ideas?

    I also tried in db query not to cache wp_postmeta, postmeta

    Thank you, the lastest version works quite well, just need to make compatible with the things above and it’s perfect:D

  • The FAQ on the plugin’s page and in the plugin’s FAQ states:

    1. Enable dynamic loading of ratings by checking GD Star Rating -> Settings -> Features “Cache support option”
    2. If Database cache enabled in W3 Total Cache add “wp_gdsr” to “Ignored query stems” option on the Database Cache settings tab, otherwise ratings will not updated after voting
    3. Empty all caches

    Thanks Frederick, GD Star is fixed, do you know anything about the pvc_views, popular posts views.

    Thanks and Happy New Year.

    If you added that to the ignore query stems field and things are still not ok, then you should try enabling debug mode, checking the page source on the front end of the site to see what queries that plugin is actually using and if they are being cached or not.

    On debug mode it says those queries are not cached, so it working but not counting all views, ill add this topic to solved, the rest will figure in time.


    Ok. Capturing the views is an INSERT operation which W3TC does not interfere with by default.

    Counting the views could be done a number of ways, so make sure to ignore all of the queries and work backwards removing them until something breaks again.
