Counterize plugin for WordPress

Introduction

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

Notice

There has been some reports that Counterize does not work well with WordPress 4.x currently. As we do not plan to update the plugin anytime soon, we advise to use another statistics plugin.

  • Powerful history with filters let you find precisely what you’re looking for
  • Email reports
  • Integration in the WordPress toolbar
  • No flash, no external library needed
  • Extensible thanks to WordPress actions and filters
  • Dashboard widget for a quick overview of your blog statistics
  • Complete API to use the data of Counterize charts as you like

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.

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.

    Love the plug-in. Can I get stats on page hits by month?

  2. Duane Pitt says:

    I am the director of a non-profit and we just added this plug-in to our website (surgicalcharities.org). I like what you have done and would like to know if this supports a counter that can appear at the bottom of the first page of the web site for viewers to see the number of people who have visted the site? We do not want to have this appear now but in the future.

    Thank you for your work.

  3. Luna says:

    I really LOVE that Plugin. I have it since at least one Year or longer installed and sometimes I really got hooked on looking my Stats. 😉

  5. Wayne Hesler-Mondore says:

    How do we get referrers to show up in stats.

  6. Richard says:

    The Counerize stats are appearing on the public wordpress page. I do not want this. I want the stats only to appear in the dashboard.

    How do I get rid of the public display?

  7. David says:

    Yours in my new most favorite plugin.
    Especially appreciate the aesthetics if the color bars.
    Thank you.

    I might have a bug report. While Counterize is reporting counts of all my posts consistently with another counter plugin that I would like to abandon, it does miss one post.

    The post shows up in “Most requested URLs” with expected count numbers but doesn’t show up at all under “Most popular posts/pages for the last 24 hours.”

    Any thoughts?

    PS Thanks again for a wonderful counter plugin.

    Hi,
    I am using your plugin and I really like it, but I get the following error message, when I try to send the email reports or when I click on the counterize dashboard:
    “Important
    No Counterize plugin has been activated. Please activate the plugins you need in the Plugins page. ”
    The plugin IS activated at the plugins section and it also shows some overview on the dashboard, but also the erroe message..
    What am I doing wrong?
    I am using the newest WP 3.5.x
    Help please,
    Chris

  13. Mary says:

    Same question as Joann had on 3/4/13: Is it possible, using Counterize or by some other means, to block IP addresses? There are a zillion \”prostituki\” and such and many .ru sites that are showing up in the Counterize reports. Thanks.

  14. James says:

    Does counterize use cookies to compile data? I am being asked this by a non-profit client that we are using counterize on. Thanks you.

  18. Jacco says:

    Hi there

    I am trying to figure out why the unique visitors stat says that I have more unique visitors per 30 minutes than I have per hour and I have more unique visitors per hour and per half hour than I have in total.

    Am I misunderstanding that stat or how does that actually work?

    Thanks

    • razvanserbu says:

      If I enter two times on you site at 40 minutes between them, I am only one person in one hour counter, but I am two different person for 30 min counter. 🙂

  20. Michael says:

    This is by far the best plugin Ive found! I run a radio station and a IT helpdesk website, These stats help me keep my websites interesting and appealing to my visitors

  21. Hugh says:

    Hi This plugin does not work since wp 3.5.1 onwards, always getting no data in database on all my websites, what could issue be as to manually create tables in phpmyadmin is not ideal solution.
    Thanks!

  22. Neil Haslewood says:

    Hi
    I think the plugin is brilliant. Well done … it is almost certainly the best plugin for site statistics. There is one addition that I think would be very useful and that is to see the “City” info. Country info is good but drilling down to city level gives more info for the demographics. Is this something that can be shown or can it be added to the plugin please?
    All the best
    Neil

  23. Peter says:

    Is it me, or is there a disconnect between Counterize and the email function of later versions of WP? Counterize doesn’t seem to send email reports from my website, although all other web functions still seem to work (registration et al) – only Counterize doesn’t email.

    I now use the admin login to look at Counterize, but would love it to email again. Would welcome debugging steps..

  24. dan says:

    Do you have an older version of counterize that would be compatible with WP 2.7?

  26. samuel says:

    i have a problem with keyword stat function. Whatever the keyword used in search engines, the keyword table in database still have a unique null value, and the count value is increasing each time a keyword is clicked.

    Thank you for your help

  27. Alex says:

    Hello,
    First of all, thanks for this wonderful plugin.
    I have a question, can I add the number of page views for each page to the article list in the dashboard? Meaning I need to add another column there named Views and then display the views for each article. Could you please help me with this? Here’s my code, which obviously doesn’t work, but you can get the idea of what I need… I’ve added this to my theme functions.php:

    add_filter(‘manage_posts_columns’, ‘postviews_admin_add_column’);
    function postviews_admin_add_column($columns){
    $columns[‘views’] = __(‘Afișări pagină’);
    return $columns;
    }
    add_action(‘manage_posts_custom_column’,’postviews_admin_show’,10,2);
    function postviews_admin_show($column_name,$id){
    if ($column_name != ‘views’)
    return;
    $post_views = counterize_current_post_hits();
    echo $post_views;
    }

    How can I make this work? Thanks.

    Best wishes,
    Alex.

    Bug Report: Running Counterize 3.1.5 on WP 3.7.1, I can’t get filters to implement. (i.e. they don’t filter the data I see, even though when I use the debug button the query appears valid)

  29. Tony C says:

    This plugin is very useful. One question, though. Is it set in a specific time zone? It appears to be set to the International Date Line. Is there any way of altering that to the time zone I am actually in?

    Hi. Is this a free program?

  35. Steve Kimpton says:

    I’m sure Counterize can give simple monthly page-views and sessions but I can’t find out how to do it in the huge amount of other stuff. Can you help please?

    I tried putting the short code [counterize type=monthly] with and without quotes on a page but just got a counterize link.

    Can Your plugin work with WP 3.8?

    Ausgezeichnet !

    I use about 20 plugins (after having tested a couple hundred)
    and this is the one that brightens up my day.

    Lovely colors to show which articles are most popular – fabulous.
    Your Counterize works flawlessly on WP 3.71.

    Thank you.

    The only problem I had was trying to send you a donation.
    I also hate Paypal, but couldn’t get an account to the one on your donation page – as they don’t conduct business in the US.

    Thank you for providing such a pleasant program.

    I have checked my Counterize stats against Google Analytics on one day Counterize says I had 80 hits while for the same day Google Analytics said I had 1016 !!! Google Analytics always shows many more hits than Counterize. This is a huge discrepancy. Is something wrong with my installation?

    I like Counterize as it is easy to understand and very convenient, but if it is misreporting stats then it is not much use to me.

    • Counterize filters lots of bots, and Google analytics doesn’t. Counterize mostly gives statistics from real human visitors. That explains the difference.

      • Tony says:

        Last night I added a quiz to the site, which logs people’s scores. In three hours 95 people had taken the quiz, however, Counterize shows only 58 hits for the whole day!

        Would uninstalling and reinstalling Counterize help. It worked perfectly fine before

        • Tony says:

          I am still not getting accurate info – is there anything I can do or do I have to install Google analytics?

  41. Charalambos says:

    Thanks!!

    I am new to blogging and counterize. I love all the reams of data, but some of the statistical categories seem to give me odd answers and the definition of others is not so obvious. For example, what is the difference between a HIT and a PAGE VIEW? Page views seem to be a subset of hits, but I don’t see any glossary that defines them to actuall know the difference.

    I have a similar problem with the UNIQUE VISITOR metrics. What is the difference between UNIQUE VISITORS and UNIQUE VISITORS (1h interval) and UNIQUE VISITORS (30 min interval)? Intuitively, it would seem obvious, but the result I see are confusing. UNIQUE VISITORS is the smallest number, with UNIQUE VISITORS (30 min interval) the largest. I would have expected the opposite.

    Sorry for such a remedial question, but this has driven me crazy for months with a plugin that I otherwise love and appreciate.

  44. Eric TF Bat says:

    Counterize is pretty good, but it seems to have been abandoned. There’s a bug in how the menu displays, with the icons and labels for the menu items disappearing diagonally off to the right instead of sitting one below another. When I saw that, maybe six months ago, I figured it would be fixed pretty quickly, but it never was. Given how simple the bug is, it’s a pretty good sign that the plugin is not being actively developed or supported, which is a pity. I guess I’ll have to find another plugin to do the same thing.

  46. Olivier says:

    Really simple and effective. Perhaps add a new setting tool in “IP Exclusion” section, addresses like 127.0.0.1-127.0.255.255 or 127.0.0.1/40. Thank’s

  47. Kenneth Adair says:

    I love this Counterize as it gives so much information but since installing W3 Total Cache plugin I find that Counterize only showing 10-20% of the hits it recorded previously. I expected the opposite, IE: seeing as my sites (16) open 25-30% faster I should see 25-30% increase in hits. I’d sure like to know what is correct number of hits; before installing W3 Total Cache or after installing that plugin.
    Thanks,
    Ken

    • Gabriel Hautclocq says:

      That’s the expected behavior. Caching plug-ins generate static HTML files which are not intercepted by counterize, as they don’t use WordPress to be displayed. If the content is cached by the browser, it’s even worse because the web server is not even aware of the hit. Only client-side Javascript tools like Google Analytics could give better results with cached content.

  48. James Davies says:

    Helpfully this is a painfully simple question, but how do you reset Counterize to 0 and start over?

  49. Jorge B says:

    I do not receive Counterize email report anymore and my Counterize do not show up in my website anymore. I can only see it in my dashboard, but my visitors cannot view it anymore. What could have happened?

  50. Peter says:

    Bonjour Gabriel (that’s about it for my French, sorry)

    Could you possible insert some examples of shortcodes that can be inserted in pages, such as showing countries, possibly also with some parameters? A few examples would show the syntax more clearly, and would alleviate the problem of not knowing if the shortcode is incorrect as opposed to other factors such as themes or other plugins getting in the way.

    Can someone also commission you for add-ons to Counterize? There is a nice iOS program called “Status board” (see https://panic.com/statusboard/) that could be used to show site statistics, but it would probably need some development to create the required repeated data extract and place the HTML where WP can’t apply the theme to it..
