  • Hello, thanks for a great plugin!

    I was wondering if anyone know about a simular sulution to count tag and category views/hits. My understanding is that there is no built in function for this in WordPress. However I wonder if there is any possiblity of bindning a meta update to tags/category that would update everytime someone view a tag/cat.

    The only way to make this work, that I could think of, is to bind every single tag/cat to a uniqe post but this is way to much work and not a effective way to go about it.

    An example that method:

    Please if anyone know about a method to count views on tags and cat and then use this results to show the most popular tags/cats by views/hits, I would appriciate very much if you gave me some help!

    Hi Fredrik,

    Indeed, WordPress doesn’t store hits/views natively and that’s the reason why this plugin exists.

    About binding views with tags / categories, I’m sure it can be done. However, this would be out of the original scope of the plugin (popular posts) so it might be best to build a complementary plugin to list the popular tags and / or categories based on the activity registered by WPP.
