The popular post plugin had been working fine and it did a great job.
Last night I saw there was an update for it and activated it. I had to redo the image sizes again and thought nothing of it.
This morning I noticed the traffic had dropped to a couple of hits an hour. Way down from the usual traffic.
Everything seemed fine to me, but asking on twitter and facebook people had problems - they had database errors or the site would load but no content would show and a few people emailed me with this type of error.
WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'day_no_time' in 'field list']
INSERT INTO wrd_popularpostsdatacache (id, day, day_no_time) VALUES (73516, '2012-09-03 09:21:16', '2012-09-03') ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE pageviews = pageviews + 1, day = '2012-09-03 09:21:16', day_no_time = '2012-09-03';
I have deactivated the plugin for now and things seem to be back to normal.
Do I need to do something different to make it work again or does it need fixing.
Hope it gets sorted soon as I did like using it.
