This was a good plugin. But sadly it now has critical bugs, and no support responses.
A page/post view counter that removes counts is pretty much useless. Here is an explanation of what happens.
Ok further to this post, I have noticed a consistent fault.
If a post has a comma in the number while editing it, beit 1,000 or 1,1 (the latter was used test my theory) when you update the post or page it will remove everything after the comma. e.g 1,000 will become 1 and 12,365 will end up as 12
But, if you remove the comma and update the post or page it will retain all the digits and add a comma e.g 1234 will end up as 1,234
I have also installed this on my test wordpress without plugins, this is a fresh clean install of wordpress and this issue still appears so I think it relates to a fault in coding not in relation to another plugin.
I hope the dev's see this and uses these findings to fix this problem soon
Installed and went to activate it and now my entire admin dashboard is broke and will not appear!
This plugin is a joke, and this is the most polite review I can give...
I know the author probably worked hard to be build it(and I respect that), but it does not count views at all....
it just adds random numbers to posts and pages.
Do not recommend it all.
It worked fine when first installed.
But about a month ago it began to count:
1 visit as 10 visits on the main landing page of the site.
1 visit as 20 visits on all posts.
I visit as 30 visits on all pages.
Tried repeatedly to locate help to fix this but there is no support for this product.
After installing the plugin, I spent a long time customising the look of the counter on single posts. When I was going to include it on the index page, I realised the counter didn't work at all, as every post was getting the same count.
Then having a look at the support area on the author's site, I saw he's no longer (for many months) answering the support requests.
Didn't realize it would put the count on each post of the index page so deactivated it but still saw a count. Deleted it, and the image was removed but was stuck saying no count. Deleted folder. Added and removed again and deactivated and deleted again and finally went away. Was not a caching issue with browser, definitely not doing that again. The maker's forum is infuriating, could sign up and then couldn't make a topic or post for support. Good riddance.
