  • Alex: thanks for that. Regards sidebar, it currently shows 10 post titles – I would like to show 5. Thats all ๐Ÿ™‚


    When you call the function, add the number you want to show:


    Alex: that was too easy ๐Ÿ™‚ sorry.

    Alex, I removed it – deactivating the plugin didn’t remove the DB tables the plugin created also. I think it conflicts with the wp-cache plugin…

    I don’t think de-activating the plugin should remove the tables, if you re-activate it the old data is still valid (and it will “catch up” with new posts).

    I don’t think it conflicts with wp-cache, but if you use wp-cache I imagine it won’t work for views since the WP hooks aren’t used.

    Oh it won’t work with wp-cache – thats a bit of a downer. Is there anyway to make it work with wp-cache? wp-cache makes wp so much faster.

    Thanks a lot.

    See, the way caching speeds things up is by not processing pages – if the page isn’t processed, it’s a bit hard to count the page view.

    Hi Alex,

    Where is beta 2 download link. The only link I found was to beta 1.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Beta 2 looks great right out of the zip file and solved all the errors I got from Beta 1.

    Very cool plug-in . . . you must of been some kind of math geek in school. Hahaha.

    Yep everything is working fine now. In my dashboard admin the numbers for some reason are slightly cut off for the ‘Most Popular Posts’ but thats only an asthetic thing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great job!

    Thanks for the great update. Is it normal to have a huge number under feeds? All my homepage postings have the same big number for feeds, and I’m seeing the same thing for category and archive views; the top 6 or 7 posts have the exact same number.

    I have a problem when viewing an entry that has a trackback/web link it it. If you go in to edit that entry and go to the bottom to preview the entry I get something that looks like this.

    I only get this error on the entry that has the link or trackback in it. The entry looks fine when viewing the blog.

    A cool option would be to allow discounting of pingbacks sent from own site – my popularity numbers are being skewed because I often link back to my old posts in my new ones.

    Love this plug in ….

    Thanks, Alex!

    I’m experiencing the same problem as newy, but on every draft that I have (even without any kind of links in them).

    Congrats for the plugin, though, it’s a really nice idea. ๐Ÿ™‚
