Wp Supercache and Page view counts (4 posts)

    Hey,

    I just installed wp supercache on a large heavy trafficked site and I'm wondering if this will mess up anything from a statistics POV? Someone had told me that when using a caching system with WP it may not show pageviews for visits to the cached pages? Is this true? If so is there a way to account for those views?

    It depends on the stats plugin. The WordPress.com Stats plugin keeps counting normally because the data collection is done by javascript.

    A plugin that increments the stats during the page load would not work with WP SuperCache.

    Lindsey, you need to specify what kind of statistical service you are using for a more precise answer. Super Cache is totally static, so any stats system that depends on page reloading (such as Sitemeter) will not work.

    actually sitemeter uses javascript doesn't it? So it should work.
