Most viewed posts widget not available

  1. From where do I get this widget "Most Viewed Posts (in the past one month)" in my sidebar. Like sulz.wordpress.com has in that blog.

    The good part about it is that it also shows the number of hits that individual post received which helps us identify which posts are being liked more by our readers.

  2. haha i did that myself. you just got to use a text widget and tinkle here and there.

  3. Oh....can you please tell me how you did that? This is greek to me. Can you send that info to my email: [email redacted]

    Thanks in advance.

  4. You can check the page source on her site.

    ** runs and hides **

  5. Great idea! I put one on my blog, too, although I'm not sure how long it will stay there. May be too much maintenance.

    Now wouldn't it be nice to have it link automatically to the top posts list?

  6. gee, he asks me for a favour and i have to personally deliver it to his email. the nerve!

    for the benefit of those reading, i use the < A HREF="URL HERE" > < /a > tag. don't forget to close the spaces in between.

    it's not much maintenance unless your top posts fluctuate a lot - so far my top five posts are pretty fixed. but the number of views can be quite high maintenance as that would fluctuate a lot.

  7. A short cut to that, instead of adding up all over your posts counts, would be Dashboard -> Blog Stats -> Top Posts -> the 30 Days link. When you get on the page, do a view source and copy and paste the top 10 links out of the source. Looks like you would have to do a search and replace though to change the https to http though.

  8. Took some slight tweaking but I did it. Left off the page views, though. I'm always on the lookout for ways to help my visitors. Thank you for the wonderful idea.

  9. Just a reminder: Don't forget to send in feedback everyone requesting an automatically updating most popular posts widget.

    I wish I had seen this before I put mine up. While I used that data, I never thought to look at the page source & copy the info

  11. how do i view my page source?

  12. Confused and questioning minds think alike - I have asked drmike to answer this over at the unofficial forum http://forums.tdjc.be/ ;)

  13. right click and choose view source .. that's it .. you're finished =)

  14. Since the source doesn't come up for me (for sum odd reason), would n e 1 mind telling me wat the code is?
    thanks

  15. how do i view my page source?

    Depends on your browser. In IE, click on View along the top and they'll be an option to view called "Source". In Netscape, it's View and then Page Source.

    aishahdhorat, we don't have access to your Dashboard so we can't tell you what your counts are. It's different for everybody.

  16. i do that but sumx it cumz up n sumx it doesnt.

  17. Does that for me in IE. Doing a forced reload of the page will help. At least it does for me.

  18. nope, it hasnt been working for ages. oh well.

  19. Hi,
    I note that you only became a member on July 28th according to your profile so is it possible for you to to narrow down just how long "for ages" means to you?
    Also I notice you still haven't revealed what kind of brwoser you are using. This is essential information that anyone trying to help you on the forum must be given.
    If it happens to be a firefox browser then you use ctrl + U to view your page source code.
    And as drmike says if it happens to be IE, click on View along the top and they'll be an option to view called "Source".
    In Netscape, it's View and then Page Source.
    Is your browser mozilla, opera or safari or flock or ....?

    To make a long story short only sysadmin have backend access to your blog. You can contact them by using the "feedback" button on the top right hand corner of your dashboard. Or, if you prefer, you can email to support@wordpress.com.

  20. *right clicks and a new browser pops up* neat...

    thanks reaper and drmike.

    i can't believe reaper is a girl. that's such a masculine username! no offense or anything

  21. reaper a girl! no! But *lol* it's becoming quite obvious that drmike is a chick magnet *lol* take that mikey are ya blushing or what, eh? Alright already - no more chat - I promise to be good ... roflombo ...

  22. Only reason behind asking 'sulz' to send it via email is that few members here on forums end up saying we won't show all this to public or we will loose our differentiating actions on our blogs. And presuming that I asked to send via email. It is obvious, you can always mention it here.

    Regardless, thanks for the feedback. Dr.mike. Heads up for you.

  23. One easy work around is to create a category called "Most Viewed" and apply it to the most viewed posts.

    Then use the RSS widget with the feed http://deepakr.wordpress.com/tag/MostViewed/feed

    (assuming that the category was "MostViewed")

  24. You would still have to work out which ones were the most read.

    well, you assumed i am one of those 'few members', which i am not. and i'm not aware that thr r such ppl in the forum, or i wouldn't have been so indignant. and you know what they say about assume, making an ass of ...
