Hi there,

Is there an option to exlcude post types? Pages?

Also any plans to add a shortcode so that we can create something like a most popular overview page with various sections for per day, month, year , ever?

Cheers, Thomas

Hello ThomasL5.

The plugin already excludes all pages, and has an option to set the post types you want to include in the count. As for your second question, I don’t quite follow, would that be like a calandar? Please refer to my other widget, Colorful Calendar.

Thanks, have a nice day!

Hi there,

Thanks. Can I also combine post types…?

No, rather like a page where I display various blocks of most popular posts by specific timframes (like “Today”, “Last month” etc.)

Cheers, Thomas

faelsoto

You can list the post types you want to include in the count, so if you only want “post” and “work” types, all the others will be excluded. I think that’s what you are referring to.

There’s no shortcode at the moment, but you can include the widgets via PHP code.

Thanks.

what’s new in the latest version?

faelsoto

Hello ptiper21, the plugin just got approved and I haven’t had the chance to update the comments.

The new thing is that now you can set the widget to include just certain types of custom posts. The default option is post, but it can be set to include other types.

I’ll be updating the FAQ as soon as possible.

Thanks for your purchase!

Hi,

[29-Mar-2014 04:13:45 UTC] PHP Notice: Undefined property: WP_Query::$post in /home/.../plugins/popularpostsbars/popularpostsbars.php on line 68

[29-Mar-2014 04:13:45 UTC] PHP Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /home/.../plugins/popularpostsbars/popularpostsbars.php on line 68

In the code this string: $post_id = !empty($post->ID) ? $post->ID : $wp_query->post->ID;

How resolve this? Thanks.

Hello MDMKA,

First of all, thanks for your purchase! I’m really sorry you have that issue, please provide an admin account and send it via PM so I can check what’s wrong with the plugin.

Thanks.

Hello,

Please help me take a look: Why my site does not display colorful bar like your demo? http://www.technologymag.net/vi/04/2014/san-pham-in-3d-tuong-lai-gan-hay-xa/

And how to move views number to after the title? http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r239/dragonanhtuan/move_number_zpsaec8cde0.jpg

Thank you, Tuan.

Please forget this page, i resolved it :)

I have another issue on my another page. When i actived the plugin, my site http://www.hivietnam.net/vi/ display this error http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r239/dragonanhtuan/4-4-201410-18-55AM_zpsf64e8916.jpg

Then I have to delete the plugin to make my site works again. Please help me check. If you want my admin details, just tell me.

Thanks again for great plugin.

faelsoto

Hello thenorth3000, thanks for your purchase.

I can’t find the widget in that link you provided. The CSS file is not being loaded, please make sure this file exists on the specified path: http://www.technologymag.net/vi/wp-content/plugins/popularpostsbarwidget/style.css?ver=3.8.1

Thanks, let me know if you need something else.

thenorth3000

As i told you, because the plugin has been crashed my site so i need to delete it manually at plugin folder :(

After a hour of researching, i found the solution: I have to change the code function most_viewed_bars_widget(... to function most_viewed_bars_widget1(...

Now it works, but the plugin only display the text. Please take a look here: http://www.hivietnam.net/vi/cat/cho-o/khach-san/

For your information: i’m using the premium theme, they’ve modified your plugin to work with my site, but it’s only display most view by comment. After that, i buy your plugin to replace count by comment to by post view. Now i just only add your plugin to Archive page so if you access homepage or post, you will view the modified plugin of theme :)

faelsoto

Hello thenorth3000. For some reason, the plugin directory can’t have spaces, it seems that you’re using “popular posts bar widget” as the directory name for this plugin, please remove all the spaces in order to load the CSS file.

Thanks, lent me know if that works for you.

thenorth3000

Thank you, it works :)

Just purchased this, am liking the plugin :)

However just one minor fix I want to make – how to hide the text that says “views” for the Popular Posts widget? I searched previous comments and tried to implement the fixes you had suggested, but none seemed to work.

Perhaps the option to turn this on and off within the widget would be something you could incorporate as an option in a future….?

faelsoto

Hello Sevenhelmets, thanks for your purchase!

I’m sorry, but I simply can’t add an option for every customization needed. For instance, you want to hide the “views” text, while some others would want to remove the whole count altogether—that’s two options, the widget’s admin panel would end up being very complicated due a lot of options that the user may not even use.

Also, both of these fixes are very basic, hiding an element on CSS is a trivial one-line hack and, in your case, have you tried searching the PHP file for the word “views”? Just find the line and remove it, that should do it.

I’m really sorry I can’t be of further assistance, but I simply can’t provide an easy-to-use script for a few dollars and support for customizations.

Hi faelsoto

No worries, I know the support has to be limited – we can’t expect the world from you ;) However I just noticed it seemed like a common request, the ability to hide the “views” text and view count, which would make sense to introduce a “toggle” to be able to turn views count on/off.

Anyway, managed to get it working myself. For future reference to other customers, here is the code to delete:

class="popular_posts_bars_comment_count_hold"><?php echo number_format($post->view_count); ?> <?php echo _n('view', 'views', $post->view_count, 'popularpostsbars') ?>  [/code]

This is from the line of code starting:

class="popular_posts_bars_li popular_posts_bars_color_......[/code]" />

felixr Purchased

nice plugin. If would be nice if you may setup an option in order to short the title, something like a excerpt to x characters In this way the long titles doesn´t increase or extend the colour bar height. By instance www.mxsolutions.net

Thanks a lot., felixr

faelsoto

Hello felixr, thanks for your purchase!

I’ll include this suggestion in the requests file I have. Altough your titles are a little too long, the plugin still handles the bars pretty good.

Hi Faelsoto – I love the plugin!

Can you add functionality to do most popular posts by category?

Also – can you list HTML classes for colours – or make the plugin accept hex colours? Then it’d be killer

faelsoto

Hello mattermarketing, thanks for your purchase!

The plugin has the option to change the html class for each of its bars, if you want to add a new color, you’ll have to add it to that list, and then create the CSS class for that new color. Please refer to the included documentation for further information. Adding a hex color option is not possible, since the bars have a slight transparency effect, which rgba is required, also, as rgba is not supported on old browsers, a fallback is advised, hence the CSS classes.

Let me know if you need something else. Don’t forget to rate!

Thanks Faelsoto – very helpful.

It would be great if you rename the examples.html to be “Guide” or “documentation” as I totally missed it.

Any update on making the popular posts from a single category?

faelsoto

You’re right! Also, it’s a bit dated, I’ll update as soon as I have some free time.

I’ll take a look into the categories feature.

No Problem – this guy’s plugin is great too – ultimately customisable for recent posts, maybe this could help you on development

Is there a way to reset the view count for the plugin? I would like it to start fresh again.

Thanks!

faelsoto

Hello Fiala06, thanks for your purchase!

You’ll have to manually empty the table via PHPMyAdmin or some other database interface. Please refer to the TRUNCATE command.

Let me know if you need something else.

Hi there,

Just bought the plugin and wondering where to set the custom post types to include – there’s no setting in the widget..?

Cheers, Thomas

faelsoto

Hello ThomasL5, thanks for your purchase!

At the moment, this is an advanced option. Because of that, you’ll have to edit the file in this line:

There you can list an array for the custom post types you want to include. Feel free to edit that array with the data you want to track.

Let me know if that works for you, don’t forget to rate!

Hi,

Ok, thanks for the info. I thought that would be possible per-widget not just globally though – can you please add this option anytime soon to the widget itself…?

Cheers, Thomas

faelsoto

Hello ThomasL5,

Yes, unfortunately that’s a global setting, but I’ll certainly make it a per-widget option as soon as I have a few free hours.
