Support » Plugin: Top 10 - Popular posts plugin for WordPress » Posts not in order and excluded post showing

  • Resolved Cilindrada


    Dear Ajay
    I thought the posts would be listed with most popular top then second most popular but this isn’t the case with my website. Do I need to change a setting?
    Also, I excluded a post yesterday and it worked ok. Today it is showing, so I don’t know what is wrong. I use wpml plug-in, wp optimize and w3Total cache. Would that effect it?
    If you can advise me what I have done wrong it would be appriecated.

    It should display the most popular post first and the second most popular after that.

    Also, same with the excluding post.

    I suspect it could be an issue with W3Total Cache since it completely caches the output of the page and Top 10 will not work in that case. It is usually the desired behaviour since you don’t want the plugin to be interfering with load times which is why you installed W3 Total Cache in the first place!

    The best way to check is to disable W3 Total Cache temporarily and browse through your site to see if things work.

    Alternatively, a good giveaway is usually in the source of the page where W3 Total Cache adds it’s signature about the page being cached at a certain time.

    If I have understood this correctly then this plug in is not going to work correctly if I am using W3 Total cache. That’s a pity but thanks anyway for your help.

    It might be worth experimenting with to see if you can make the widget dynamic.

    I’ve been reluctant to implement a ajax based solution of the top posts because it has the tendency to lose the speed benefits.

    That being said, it’s also one of the longer term plans for me to get something good working.
