WordPress.com Stats Plugin Widget Display, View Count Wrong? (2 posts)

    Hi there, I'm using this variation on the WordPress Stats Widget script, in a tabbed widget using shortcodes:


    if ( function_exists('get_stats_exclude_home') && $top_posts = get_stats_exclude_home(7,5) ) : ?>

    <?php endif

    It works great at filtering out the home page, but my users have noted that the stats it displays don't match what shows on the dashboard. Article A will show 800 views in the dashboard, but only 780 in the widget, etc.

    This may not be a problem with the script, but a cache issue, but why would the dashboard be up to date and the csv not be?

    Any idea why?

    My client decided to just take out the numbers and list all history. However, now that doesn't line up. The stats admin area lists the top 5 articles of all time but the widget does not pull in the same list.

    Why does the data not match up? I'm using -1 in the time parameter to bring in all time data.
