[Plugin: WordPress Popular Posts] possible fix for using WPP with other plugins (1 post)

    Pretty new to WPP, so apologies if this is known (either to be good or bad), but hoping it might help some folks.

    I'm using WPP on a site that includes BuddyPress. BuddyPress is a good example of a plugin that generated pages that don't have post ids associated with them, per se.

    I've found this to cause JS errors on such pages, as the basic wpp_update call is looking for an $id param, which equates to null. I altered wordpress-popular-posts.php to first check to see if it has an id before firing the wpp_update call:

    // if we're on a page or post, load the script
    			if ( (is_single() || is_page()) ) {
    				$id = $wp_query->post->ID;
    <!-- WordPress Popular Posts v<?php echo $this->version; ?> -->
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
        /* <![CDATA[ */
    	jQuery.post('<?php echo admin_url('admin-ajax.php'); ?>', {action: 'wpp_update', token: '<?php echo $nonce; ?>', id: <?php echo $id; ?>});
        /* ]]> */
    <!-- End WordPress Popular Posts v<?php echo $this->version; ?> -->

    (note the if($id) )
    ... and this seems to have resolved the issue.

    If there's a better way, or this is actually straight-up bad, please let me know!
