Installed it and found it to be far too complicated to use. Looking in the plugin settings for the shortcode for testing basic configuration resulted in not finding it. The links led to what code does what. Finally found a basic piece of information on the description page here. Must copy a css file to theme directory but that is not clear. Do you mean the root directory of the theme or the css directory for the theme? It's just too much of a headache to figure this plugin out so I've deleted it. Shouldn't be so difficult to configure a plugin to show the most popular posts. I don't need any answers as I'm not going to use it. Just giving feedback.
This plugin is the single-biggest load on our network. Average response times from the requests are near 2 seconds.
Very poor performance.
Nice plugin but WPML support is not correct. It shows non sense results in popular list for all other languages than default. The developer is resistive to fix this problem even several users reported that.
I think maybe this is the best popular post plugin to look, but i noticed REALLY BIG problems with server load. This plugin consume an enormous amount of resources. I discovered that lately, when my server was crashing. With high traffic server load was around 80.00, eliminating the plugin the server load is around 1.00.
Watch out if you have a lot of traffic on your website, this plugin can be devastating.
Each time the statistics go crazy and touches empty the cache, but always ends up back to fail again.
I would just avoid. This was time consuming to find out it doesn't work well.
"Genius idea" to start counting popular post only after plugin installed (
I was fan of your software before you published the 2 last versions... .
It seems the stats are wrong.
It's a shame.
Is it possible to get previous versions ?
I hope you fix the problem ou publish older version.
Otherwise I going to change...
Plugin not working
This is pretty poorly put together. For example, there are tool tips in the widget which open a completely irrelevant page when clicked -- in the same window! So you lose all the settings you just configured and still don't get an answer from the tool tip....
