Introduction

Counterize is a counter and statistics plugin for WordPress that doesn’t use external libraries. Download Counterize!

Version 3 of Counterize is doing its best to be compatible with the latest release of WordPress, but this is still a work-in-progress. Feel free to report any incompatibility! Also, please note that Counterize is only guaranteed to work correctly on the latest version of WordPress.

You are welcome to propose your translation for Counterize, please follow this guide. I am not a native English speaker, so your help for a better English translation would be appreciated as well.

Here is a very short demo of what Counterize can do:

[counterize type=”os” items=”3″ subitems=”5″ collapsible=”yes” header=”Top 3 operating systems”]

Counterize is a fork of Counterize II by Steffen Forkmann (http://www.navision-blog.de/counterize) who kindly gave us the permission to continue the development of his plugin. It has since evolved to a more complete and powerful plugin, and almost doesn’t share common code anymore.

Counterize API

After you have installed the Counterize plugin, you can see a lot of diagrams on the Counterize Dashboard page (Dashboard/Counterize).

Most likely you’d like to have a counter somewhere on your pages, showing the number of visitors or similar.
Here’s an overview of the functions which can be used anywhere in your WordPress blog:

Traffic functions

counterize_getamount()                 // Returns the total hits seen by Counterize.

FAQ

Q: I know that I have incoming traffic but  Counterize stats stay at zero. Why?

A: There is probably a problem somewhere, so I will need you to do the following:

  •  Open your wp-config.php file
  • Ensure that WP_DEBUG is set to true. The line should be “define( ‘WP_DEBUG’, false );”
  • Add the following lines just after:
error_reporting( E_ALL | E_STRICT );
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
  • Reload your website in your browser
  • Tell me about any errors, warnings and notices you see, if any
  • If no errors are shown, then you probably do not have incoming traffic…

Q: Why aren’t the IP of my visitors logged?

A: You need to enable the option in the Counterize settings. It is disabled by default. 

Q: How to translate Counterize in my language?

A: Please follow these instructions

Q: Can I extend Counterize?

A: Yes. Counterize is now modularizable and you can add your own Counterize plugin. Counterize also provides several action and filter hooks.

Q: Can Counterize replace Google Analytics?

A: Not yet. But it’s a good addition/alternative. 

Q: What are the minimum requirements to run Counterize?

A: The same requirements than the current stable version of WordPress, so for example PHP 5 is required, but as with each supplementary plugin, it will use more RAM, so take this into account.
Counterize is also known to take a lot of database space in its current version, especially if your website is very visited.

Q: I see an error message like “The script whose uid is 12345 is not allowed to access /var/tmp/” or “Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter – headers already sent“, HELP!

A: Try adding the following 3 lines just after the PHP start tag of your wp-config.php:

if( ! isset( $_SESSION ) )
{
	session_start();
}

Also, make sure the session.save_path in your php.ini is set and point to a valid path. Please read this article for more details about this issue.

Q: Do you provide support for Counterize?

A: Sometimes, I can provide BASIC support for free. It mostly depends on my free time, because Counterize is developed on my free time too.
Nobody likes to work for peanuts, so do not expect professional level support for free.
If you need a better support or something is urgent, please contact me to discuss of a price.

  1. hi thanks for plugin.

    I want to translate to Turkish plugin.

    if you send word list or please tell me what can i do ?

    • Hi can, please follow these steps:

      In the Counterize folder, you will find a file “counterize.pot”.
      Rename that file to “counterize-tr.po” (not “.pot”), then open it with a translation tool such as Poedit (http://www.poedit.net/)
      If you use Poedit, go to the Catalog>Settings menu (or whatever it is in turkish), and fill in the following informations:

      In the “Project informations” tab:

      Name and version of the project: counterize 3.0.8
      Translation team: whatever you want
      Translation team email: your email
      Language: Turkish
      Character set: UTF-8
      Do not fill-in the Country field. This way, if any other country speak turkish, they can also benefit from your translation
      Country: Select your country

      In the Path tab: add a path to where you extracted Counterize
      In the Keywords tab: add “__” and “_e” keywords

      Then save the settings
      You can now translate each sentence to turkish.
      Save your translation. A new file “counterize-tr.mo” should be created.
      Send me the two files “counterize-tr.po” and “counterize-tr.mo”

      Thats all! :)

      Good luck and thank you for your interest in Counterize.

  2. i finish translate. i have counterize-tr.po and counterize-tr.mo files. but can i see on my working wordpress blog for last check ?

  3. Thank you for the translation.

    Once you have your counterize.mo and counterize.po files, just upload them in the counterize folder. Counterize should be translated automatically to the language of your blog, provided you set it to Turkish already.

    If your blog is still in English, I suggest that you read the following article: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language

    If you just want Counterize to be in Turkish and keep your blog in English, you can try to replace the following value in your wp-config.php file:

    Replace:
    define ('WPLANG', '');
    By:
    define ('WPLANG', 'tr');

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

  4. I’m using counterize II as a plugin in my web and always worked, but now since a few days ago the counter is always in 0 visits and i don’t know why.. there’s any solution for it?

  5. Hi,

    – Which counter exactly?
    – Which version of Counterize are you using?
    – If not the latest, can you try to upgrade to the latest one and see if it helps?
    – If it does not help, can you try to set WP_DEBUG to true in wp-config.php and report me any error message?

    Regards

  6. Thanks very much for this plugin, i have been using it for a while now, but the last update have gave me lots of errors (undefined index:…). I am using wordpress 3.1.3 with twenty ten 1.2 (very slightly modified) and counterize 3.0.13. Thanks in advance.

  7. Hi Miguel,

    Please send me the complete errors messages, all of them.

    Thanks

  8. hi, thanks for this great plugin.

    I would like to make counterize visible for “editors” users on my wordpress. They get a message saying they don’t have rights to see it…

    How can i do ?

    Thanks in advance

  9. Hello,

    Counterize doesn’t seem to work on multi-site installs. None of the sites report any data being collected, even after Counterize has been installed and active for months. Have you had a chance to test on a multi-site install yet?

  10. Hi Will,

    No I haven’t had a chance to test this on a multi-site install, sorry. If I understand well, the issue was also present with the previous version of Counterize (Counterize II 2.14.1).

    It would be useful for me if you could set WP_DEBUG to true in your wp-config.php as well as uncomment the line “error_reporting(E_ALL)” in the beginning of counterize.php, and then report any error message to me.

    Thanks for your interest in Counterize.

    Regards

  11. Hi, I just installed the latest version, replacing my previous version, and now I can’t view my stats (it says I don’t have permission) – any idea what to do to fix this? Thanks!

  12. Hi Anni,

    Which role does your user have (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities)? Currently Counterize is disabled for non-admin users, but I could change this in the next version. Maybe make it a setting.

  13. When looking in the dashboard in WordPress under RTL languauge, it looks garbled.

    Can you fix that?

  14. Hi emale, maybe I can fix it, do you have a screenshot?

  15. После последнего обновления, когда в админке появилась кнопка Контерайза, пропала кнопка Записи…

  16. No longer able to activate the latest versions of Counterise as the make_seed function is already declared in an existing wp-security-scan plugin

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare make_seed() (previously declared in /homepages/34/d139455238/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-security-scan/functions.php:4) in /homepages/34/d139455238/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/counterize/counterize.php on line 114

  17. Thanks for reporting this Steve, I will rename the function in the upcoming version. You can rename all the occurences of “make_seed” to “counterize_make_seed” if you can’t wait a few hours for the next release.

    Sorry for any inconvenience!

    Best regards,

    Gabriel Hautclocq

  18. Gabriel

    Many thanks for the quick response. I didn’t want to rename the function in my copy as it would have been overwritten in later updates.

    Many thanks, great plug-in.

    Kind regards
    Steve

  19. Hi,

    since one of the last updates, counterize got its own menu entry. unfortunatly somehow the article menu was removed by that??

    I’m using the latest WordPress version and the latest counterize version. Updates are done using the auto-update feature.

    thanks,

    Mike.

    P.S. Thanks for continuing and improving this great plug in. I’ve been a counterize user for many years now.

  20. Great Plug-in but as above, the new menu tab in the admin replaces the Posts tab (the one at the top of the admin bar on the left of the screen). Thus, you have to continuously activate and deactivate the plug-in.

    Hope you fix this bug, it’s an otherwise excellent plug-in!

    Thanks.

  21. Hi Mike and tdski,

    It seems it’s a problem with line 2470 of counterize.php:

    $counterize_dashboard_handles[‘dashboard’] = add_menu_page(__(‘Counterize’, ‘counterize’) . ‘ – ‘ . __(‘Dashboard’, ‘counterize’), __(‘Counterize’, ‘counterize’) , $capability, “counterize_dashboard”, ‘counterize_display_dashboard_page_callback’, $counterize_plugin_url . ‘/bar_chart_20x20.png’, 5);

    A quick fix would be to change the last argument (5) by another smaller number. However I have to find how to insert this menu without replacing an existing one regardless of the wordpress installation.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your interest in Counterize!

    Regards

  22. This bug should be fixed in the 3.0.19 release I just committed to the WordPress repository 😉

  23. Works perfectly now. Thanks a lot for that.

  24. You are welcome, I’m glad this fixed the issue.

  25. Yes. Problem solved. Thanks a lot.

    Another issue: I’m trying to update a very old version of counterize with quite a bit of data to the last version. the update is working, but if you activate the plug-in, it times out after 30 seconds (that’s the max execution time for scripts on my webhost), also blocking the rest of the backend.

    I guess it’s update the database and with a lot of data is timing out. Is there a way to do this updating more efficient or at least make it a manual action?

  26. Hi Mike,

    Counterize will not work properly if it cannot update its database. What I propose is that you do the following:
    – Backup your database
    – Import it in a local web server where you can change the max execution time to a greater value than 30 seconds.
    – Let Counterize do its update job until completion
    – Export the local database
    – Import it to your webhost database

    Hope this helps!

    Regards

  27. I can generate s screenshot.
    To what address to send it to?

    Also, more problems:

    I want to add my CHANGING IP (for example emale199.no-ip.com) to the IP filter, and I cannot.

    Can you add support to No-IP.com and other dynamic DNS services?

  28. Hi,
    I’m running v3.0.19 on wp3.1.3 and can view statistic in the dashboard.

    I can’t get them visible in a post/page.
    When I go to Edit-plugins I find all php-files are listed as inactive except counterize.php.
    Install had no problems or errors.
    Does that ring a bell or is that normal behaviour?

  29. i try to my wp site

  30. @All,

    You can try to use the #- something -# syntax. I’ve verified that it works. If not, try to disable any other plugins to see if it helps.

  31. Hey guys, nice script. my problem: it does not show the IP’s. Is this a known problem, or just my fault? greetz

  32. Did you enable the collection of IP addresses in Counterize options? If you can’t find that option, then you should definitely upgrade to the latest version, then enable this option 😉

  33. hi,
    thanks for the plugin, it is very helpful!
    :)
    my site is in hebrew and I would like to know if there is a way to display the “most searchd words” properly. right now the plug won’t display hebrew, instead I get – “????????”
    thanks!

  34. Hi,
    I found several problems updating from an older version (no version in wp_options so update used 1.0.0) and a large amount of usage data (almost 100,000 entries in wp_Counterize).

    First problem was copying data to the new tables for pages, referers, user agents. The installation script loads all entries from wp_Counterize and does a single update for each row, this exceeded the memory limit. I would suggest just doing an update like
    UPDATE wp_Counterize c SET c.pageID = (SELECT p.pageID FROM wp_Counterize_Pages p WHERE p.url = c.url);
    I did it this way for all three tables without any problems.

    Creation of the new keyword table worked with loading all referrers after I added unset($referers) afterwards to free memory, but maybe it would be better not to do it this way because the more referrers exist, the more likely a memory problem will exist. With loading e.g. 5000 entries each time in a loop it would be safe.

    Last problem was the country update – at least there is a warning in the update script for this (however you don’t see it without looking into the installation script – especially online update via wordpress admin interface is a problem here). I suggest doing this analogue to my proposal for referrers.

    This is all about memory problems during update, functionality is perfect. I really like this plugin – thanks for it!

  35. Hi, I updated to the newest version (3.0.26) today. WordPress 3.1.3 german is installed. On activating the plugin I got an error in line 357 of the install.php. I had to delete the plugin folder manually. Deleting the old wp_counterize – Tables in my database didn’t help. Previous versions where working fine. Can you reproduce this problem?

  36. hej,

    i use wordpres 3.0.3. i just want to show the unique hits on one page and tried your codes like . they dont work. worpress either formats or doesnt show any info. it looks different to the short codes wordpress usually uses or were they just for websites without wordpress?

    FYI, for the past couple of minor revisions, the ip_files/countries.php file has to be edited to have the leading tag as “<?php" and not just "<?" for it to work properly (not dump a bunch of Array code to the browser).

    Is there anything I need to do to suppress hyperlinks from rendering the underline for the Top 10 browsers, et al? Cosmetically, it is annoying to see:

    Thanks!

  38. Hi,

    thanks for the plugin. I have a lot of external links on my page – can Counterize monitor those as well? How about downloadable files, is it possible to monitor those, too?

    I really appreciate your help,
    chris

  39. But I want to show the number of visit on my blog…
    How Can I do that?

  40. Hi Neo,

    If you want to show the number of visits same as in my website, you can add something like this in the PHP code of your footer:

    < ?php echo counterize_getuniqueamount(); ?> visitors

  41. Thx, But It doesn’t work…

  42. Could you be more precise that “it doesn’t work” ?

  43. It is working now… The problem was the space “< ?php".
    Thanks a lot.

  44. Ah, right, this space is automatically inserted by WordPress when a comment is posted (for obvious security reasons :) ).

  45. Great plugin! Does exactly what it needs to do! Thanks!
    Just got one warning in WP

    Warning: Division by zero in /public/sites/www.domain.nl/wp-content/plugins/counterize/counterize.php on line 1842

    Warning: Division by zero in /public/sites/www.domain.nl/wp-content/plugins/counterize/counterize.php on line 1846

  46. Thanks!
    This will be fixed in the next release :)

  47. Hi everyone,

    The updates for Counterize are less frequent these days. That is because I am currently rewriting some Counterize old code in order to make Counterize modularizable and extensible.

    The next release should arrive quite soon, thank you for your patience.

    In the next version you should be able to:

    • Use the data from any chart to do whatever you want with it. Each chart will not use a data feed as its data source, so you will be able to create your own charts if you know some PHP.
    • Create your own modules if you need
    • Enable/Disable modules (eg: disable the Referer module if you don’t use it)

    That should be the best release of Counterize ever released :)

  48. Hi, I’ve been trying to get Counterize to work but I get a message telling me “There’s no data in the database – You can’t see stats until you have data.” I have no entries for Counterize in my database and I have had visitors since installing. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and there are still no Counterize entries in my database and no stats show up at all.

  49. Hi D. lan, Counterize has already been reported to not record data in case your WordPress installation is a multisite one (MU). If that is the case, unfortunately I do not know how to solve this problem yet. If you have a standard WordPress installation (not multisite), you should edit your wp-config.php to set WP_DEBUG to true as well as adding the two following lines:

    error_reporting( E_ALL | E_STRICT );
    ini_set(‘display_errors’, 1);

    Then tell me of any errors, warnings and notices you may see.

  50. The modularization will actually arrive with a next version. 3.0.30 bring data feeds though.
