    Wonder if it possible somehow to stop counting page views and let the plugin count only views for published posts?

    Hey there,

    Not sure if I understand your question but WPP tracks views for published content only (posts, pages, etc). Drafts and other non “publish” statuses are not taken into account.

    Care to explain in more details what you’re trying to achieve?

    I understand how it works. But I don’t need to count views for pages. Is it possible to choose counting only for posts?

    My project consists of 10 static pages and every week I’m updating (only) the content of them (already for few years). So, in my case, I do not need page counting to avoid unnecessary litter in the DB.

    Ah yes, actually there’s a filter hook for that: wpp_trackable_post_types.

    Ohh. Everything is already existing 🙂

    Just to clarify. In my case, to count views only for published posts, I should place such code:

    function my_trackable_post_types( $post_types ){	
    	$track_these_post_types_only = array( 'post' );	
    	return $track_these_post_types_only;
    add_filter( 'wpp_trackable_post_types', 'my_trackable_post_types', 10, 1 );

    Your help would be much appreciated.

    Correct! Place that code snippet inside your theme’s functions.php file (or in a mu-plugin) and you’re good to go.

    Ok, got it! Incredibly responsive support here! Thanks a lot and best wishes! 🙂
