Popular Posts not updating

  • According to my WordPress.com stats, I recently had a new post take over the 5th most popular spot. However, the previous post is still displayed in the sidebar. I am using the php function instead of the widget. Code I’m using is below. I have also deactivated and activated the WordPress Stats and Popular Posts plugins, but no change.

    <?php WPPP_show_popular_posts(‘title=<h2>Popular Posts</h2>&show=posts’); ?>

    Any thoughts on what’s not working?

  • It could be that the wordpress.com stats is counting differently than the php function. There should not be a huge difference but it’s possible.

    Hi,

    Check with these options:

    -> upgrade your wordpress and plugin to the latest version
    -> Disable all the plugins and enable it one by one.

    Thanks,

    There are lies, damn lies and statistics. This is especially true when using stats software…

    -> upgrade your wordpress and plugin to the latest version

    What’s with the generic suggestions?

    I strongly agree with esmi, don’t trust the stats and just leave it be unless it’s that important to you.
