Support » Plugin: WordPress Popular Posts » The views up 3 clicks each.

  • Hello, I use this plugin on a professional blog. I use it in the sidebar, which allows me to have a track of the number of views of my articles, or 24 hours from the beginning. But I noticed that every clicks, the numbers of views does not increase one, but three. What could be the problem? I like this plugin, and I would like to continue using it.

  • My blog is I temporarily disable the number of views per day.

    Same problem here. I have just installed it and it adds 3 views after every single view.

    I had same problem, too much(double or triple) count with 2.3.5.
    Then I returned it to the version 2.3.2.
    Now I have no problem and I’m waiting for new version.
    (I use this plug-in at sidebar and single post of WP3.5.1–ja)

    2.3.2 download

    Hi guys,

    Someone else reported this before but got no further feedback from him. Please try the following:

    1. Disable all other plugins and verify if the problem persists,
    2. If not, switch to another theme and check again.

    Please, let me know the results.

    I tried, but may be unable to explain well in English. Sorry.

    (1)All plugins stopped
    One page was counted 5,one page 4, one page 0 when each page was opened one time.

    (2)Another theme
    I usually use an original theme. I changed it to twenty twelve.
    Other plugins exist.
    Both pattern ajaxing enabled and disabled.
    They became same result with (1).

    Every count starts from 4 in WPP2.3.5 views.

    I like this plugin.
    Good luck!

    Having the same problem at, post count is inaccurate.

    Alright, thanks for the feedback ehou. Can you please list the plugins and theme being used on your site? I’m using Twenty Twelve and that problem doesn’t happen over here, so I’d like to replicate your configuration and check.

    Hi, Héctor.
    I tried (1)+(2), all plugin stopped, Twenty Twelve theme and WPP2.3.5.
    The result, all the pages were counted by 1.
    No problem!!Wonderful!!

    And I tried this with WPP2.3.2, too.
    The Count started from 2.

    @ehou so, what you’re saying is that the plugin works fine if no other plugins are enabled?

    I checked (2) again , another theme(switch to twenty twelve) under existence of other plugins.
    It works right. Sorry.

    Then I think the original theme may affect WPPP2.3.5.

    Other users
    What theme do you use?
    Let’s report something!

    I’m seeing this issue as well. It looks like WordPress SEO, a very popular plugin, is causing these double view counts.

    Hope that helps a bit in figuring out the issue.

    Hey guys, another question: did you enable the Ajaxify feature in wp-admin > Settings > WordPress Popular Posts > Tools? Does the problem happen when it’s enabled or disabled?

    Enabling Ajaxify fixes the double counting issue.

    This fix worked while using Twenty Fourteen and many plugins at
