No "views" counted & footer.php (4 posts)

    Since activating the plugin 1 month ago, no views have been counted. Am I supposed to add some php code to the footer.php file?

    ANSWER - YES! According to the faq section of the plugin site documentation, I had to "uncomment" the call to the footer in the footer.php file.

    I changed

    <!--?php wp_footer(); ?-->


    <!?php wp_footer(); ?>

    and the stats started coming in.

    Wait, would this slow down my website?

    Well, I'd be lying if I didn't say that it added a few extra MySQL queries on page view, but the impact should be in the millisecond range, barely noticeable if at all.

    The same can be said for any stats plugin.
