Top 10 — Popular posts plugin for WordPress

Описание

WordPress doesn’t have an in-built system to track page views or displaying popular posts. Top 10 is an easy to use, yet, powerful WordPress plugin that will count the number of page views of your posts, pages and any custom post types. You can then display the page view counts as well as display your most popular posts.

Top 10 adds two widgets that you can use to display a list of popular posts and the counta cross all your blog posts.

Although several similar plugins exist today, Top 10 is one of the most feature-rich popular post plugins with support for thumbnails, shortcodes, widgets, custom post types and CSS styles. The inbuilt caching system also helps reduce server load by caching your popular posts output. The tracking uses ajax and is thus compatible with most popular caching plugins.

Top 10 also has powerful API and is fully extendable with WordPress actions and filters to allow you easily extend the code base to add new features or tweak existing ones.

Особенности

  • Page counter: Counts page views on single posts, pages and custom post types on an hourly basis which can then be easily displayed automatically, using shortcodes or functions
  • Popular posts: Display a list of popular posts either for total counts or for a custom period. You can choose how many posts are to be displayed along with loads of other customisation options
  • Widget ready: Sidebar widgets available for daily popular and overall popular posts. Highly customizable widgets to control what you want to display in the list of posts
  • Шорткоды: The plugin includes two shortcodes [tptn_list] and [tptn_views] to display the posts list and the number of views respectively
  • Thumbnail support
    • Support for WordPress post thumbnails. Top 10 will create a custom image size (tptn_thumbnail) with the dimensions specified in the Settings page
    • Auto-extract the first image in your post to be displayed as a thumbnail
    • Manually enter the URL of the thumbnail via WordPress meta fields. Specify this using the meta box in your Edit screens.
  • Exclusions: Exclude posts from select categories from appearing in the top posts list. Also exclude posts by ID from appearing in the list
  • Styles: The output is wrapped in CSS classes which allows you to easily style the list. You can enter your custom CSS styles from within WordPress Admin area or use the style included.
  • Admin interface: View list of daily and/or overall popular posts from within the dashboard. Top 10 also adds two sortable columns to your All Posts and All Pages pages in your WordPress Admin area
  • Export/Import interface: Export the count tables and settings to restore in the same site or on other installs
  • Works with caching plugins like WP-Super-Cache, W3 Total Cache or Quick Cache
  • Extendable code: Top 10 has tonnes of filters and actions that allow any developer to easily add features, edit outputs, etc.

Can this plugin replace Google Analytics?

No. Top 10 has been designed to only track the number of page-views on your blog posts and display the same. It isn’t designed to replace Google Analytics or any other full fledged analytics application.

How does the scheduled maintenance work?

When you enabled the scheduled maintenance, Top 10 will create a cron job that will run at a predefined interval and clean up old entries from the wp_top_ten_daily table.
Note: If you enable this option, WordPress will execute this job when it is scheduled the first time

How to make the columns on the Custom Post Type admin pages sortable?

Add the following code to your functions.php file of your theme.

add_filter( 'manage_edit-{$cpt}_sortable_columns', 'tptn_column_register_sortable' );

Replace {$cpt} by the slug of your custom post type. E.g. to make the columns on your ‘projects’ post type sortable, you will need to add:

add_filter( 'manage_edit-projects_sortable_columns', 'tptn_column_register_sortable' );

Loaded a number for the overall posts and 4 posts from 2011 for the last 30 days posts views. Views of 1 and 2. I know more posts get 30-70 views a day. Could not make it work at all.

It is a simple and effective plugin! The other popular posts plugin were messing up with respect to the font, thumbnail, or something else. They looked out of place from my theme. This one inherited nicely and it fit in my theme perfectly.

Plugin is amazing. It helped me a lot to show the most popular posts on website. But what is the best thing here is fact, that support is willing to help in styling and work of plugin on each website. Thanks to that I have adapted it to my requirements. Thank you!

I'm running the plugin for a day now and so far, I'm very satisfied. There are a lot of options available, so you can tailor it to your needs. There are also many filters available to customize the behavior of plugin even further. Another big plus is plugin author being active and responsive on support page. Five stars from me.
