"Count per Day" ist ein Besucherzähler für WordPress.

Die Seitenaufrufe werden pro Artikel gespeichert. Dabei wird als "Reload-Sperre" nur ein Aufruf pro IP-Adresse und Tag berücksichtigt.

Beispiel: Wenn ein Leser 5 Artikel ansieht, sind alle "1 mal gelesen", aber der Gesamtzähler erkennt, dass es nur ein Besucher war.
Die Aufrufe können pro Artikel angezeigt werden. Im Admin-Bereich gibt es weitere Statistiken.

Visit Counter, shows reads and visitors per page, visitors today, yesterday, last week, last months and other statistics.


"Count per Day" counts 1 visit per IP per day. So any reload of the page do not increment the counter.

Languages, Translators


  1. unzip plugin directory into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress

The activation will create or update a table wp_cpd_counter.

The Visitors-per-Day function use 7 days as default. So don't surprise about a wrong value in the first week.


See the Options Page and check the default values.

  • With GeoIP you can associate your visitors to an country using the IP address.
  • On options page you can update you current visits. This take a while! The Script checks 100 IP addresses at once an reload itself until less then 100 addresses left. Click the update button to check the rest.
  • If the rest remains greater than 0 the IP address is not in GeoIP database (accuracy 99.5%).
  • You can update the GeoIP database from time to time to get new IP data. This necessitates write permissions to wp-content/count-per-day-geoip directory.
  • If the automatically update don't work download GeoIPv6.dat.gz, extract and rename it to GeoIP.dat and load it to the count-per-day-geoip directory.

    Hi Tom!

    Endlich ist das Widget da, auf welches ich schon lange gewartet habe :). Super Sache, doch leider funktioniert die Formatierung bei mir nicht richtig... Die Zahlen sind um eine Zeile nach unten verschoben. Mein Fehler?! :).

    Kannst du mir weiterhelfen?

    Grüße Tobi

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hi Tobi!
      Hast es ja schon allein hingekriegt wie ich auf deiner Seite sehen kann. Das passiert, wenn die Zahlen und Texte nicht in eine Zeile passen. Entweder dann die Sidebar verbreitern oder die Texte kürzen.

      • Tobi Tobi sagt:

        Danke für deine Antwort!

        komische Sache... im Firefox funktioniert es nicht, im Google Chrome ohne Probleme!? Im Firefox sind die Zeilen verschoben, obwohl ich die Texte verkürzt habe!

        noch ne Idee? u1F60A.svgz

        • Tom Tom sagt:

          Ich hab Firefox und sehe immer 2-3 cm Platz zwischen Text und Zahl auf deiner Seite. Alles besten. Ich mach nen Screenshot wenn du mir nicht glaubst. u1F609.svgz

          • Tobi Tobi sagt:

            ich glaub dir das gerne, da es bei mir im Chrome auch funktioniert, ich kann dir aber auch gerne von mir einen Screenshot schicken ;). wie kann ich denn den Abstand zwischen "Text:" und Zahl verringern?

    Hi Tom:
    I just installed CPD 2.2 wih geoip. I get the following errors:

    Warning: gzopen(): URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in [suppresed]/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/geoip/geoip.php on line 84
    Warning: gzopen( failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in [suppresed]/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/geoip/geoip.php on line 84
    Warning: gzread(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in [suppresed]/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/geoip/geoip.php on line 85
    Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in [suppresed]/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/geoip/geoip.php on line 86

    I am using another plugin that uses geoip data:
    comment info detector (,
    without any problem. It may be because that plugin has included the ip table with the plugin.

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hello Francisco,
      i think you don't have enabled php fopen function in php.ini. I only check gzopen an show an error. The plugin works without this extension. Only the installation of a new GeoIP.dat file on options page need it. You can download an install the file. The version in addon download is of 08/2009.

      • fahirsch fahirsch sagt:

        Unfortunately I'm not in control of the server, so either I forgo the use of GeoIP or you change it to use the base locally (as in the above plugin) u1F609.svgz
        More seriously, wouldn't it be better if the geoip base was local, instead of distant?
        I hope you take up my suggestion.

        • Tom Tom sagt:

          The addon download includes the database GeoIP.dat. So it works locally. I have disabled "allow_url_fopen" in php.ini and see the errors you wrote if i try to update the GeoIP.dat file. But the addon works fine, it get the country data and updates the CpD table.
          So addon works, update don't without fopen.
          If you want update the file, download and install it per ftp on you server. Once a month or fewer.
          Download the Development Version and post the "DEBUG" infos from options page. So we will see which functions are on/off.
          The comment-info-detector also used a binary file and fopen like my addon.

    Getting odd numbers: Visitors today on the graph is listed as 70, but Visitors today above is listed at 17. Which is correct?

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Both u1F603.svgz
      The graph shows reads/page views and the "Today" number shows visitors. It's a bit confusingly? I want to create a visitors graph too... soon.

  4. Mandy Mandy sagt:

    Hallo Tom, ich möchte die Anzeige der Funktion getMostVisitedPosts() gern in meiner Sidebar haben. Leider kommt es beim Eintrag in die sidebar.php nicht zur Anzeige, sonder nur wenn ich den Code in single.php oder aber in index.php einsetze, da nur dort die post-loop ist. Wie kann ohne widget-Nutzung die Anzeige dennoch in der Sidebar unterbringen?
    Vielen Dank.

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hallo Mandy,
      gute Frage. Mit der aktuellen Funktion dürfte es nicht gehen, da ich $this->options benutze und this in der Sidebar ja nicht existiert.
      Probier mal folgendes:

      $cpdneu = new CountPerDay();
  5. chris chris sagt:


    irgendwie zaehlt der Counter per Day bei mir nicht. Kann dies irgendwie daran liegen, dass ich Teile des Designs auskommentiert habe die ich nicht sehen will. Ich habe leider absolut keine Ahnung war es nicht geht. Es ist alles auf dem neuesten Stand, WordPress und der Counter von dir. Hoffe du kannst mir helfen oder einen Tip geben was ich testen soll.


    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hallo chris,
      Autocounter eingeschaltet? Ggf. auch angemeldete Besucher? Ist bei Installation erstmal aus. Ansonsten musste eine Funktion in die single.php einbauen.

      • chris chris sagt:

        Ups, habe vergessen zu Speichern nachdem ich den Autocounter aktiviert hatte. Jetzt ist er an und es geht auch alles. Danke für die schnelle Antwort und dein super gutes Plugin!

  6. Zebra242 Zebra242 sagt:

    Hi there, thank you for a great plugin.

    1) I'ld like to use the 'getMostVisitedPosts()' function in my template, but it seems only to get to work with $cpdneu = new CountPerDay(); $cpdneu->getMostVisitedPosts();. Which is not so bad after all u1F609.svgz

    2) I would like to limit the amount of displayed results of this function up to maximum 5 results; where can I change this?

  7. Zebra242 Zebra242 sagt:

    --> Maybe I didn't explain myself totally clear: can I provide a different amount of numbers to be displayed on the frontend (5) and keep the amount of 20 post in the dashboard (backend)?

  8. MaNIaC MaNIaC sagt:

    Hallo Tom,

    ich hab grade dein Plugin entdeckt und es installiert. Leider zählt er bei mir nicht...Autocounter und angemeldete benutzer sind eingeschalten. Benutze den Atahualpa theme aber es will einfach nicht! (Leider)
    Siehe auf meiner Seite rechts is die Statistik...leider immer alles 0... u1F622.svgz
    Hab was gelesen von integrieren in single.php
    Wo und wie wäre das?

    Hoffe du kannst helfen!


    • MaNIaC MaNIaC sagt:

      Hallo Nochmal Tom,

      grade selber gefunden wo ich den Befehl einfügen muss (mein Theme hat keine single.php, dort heisst sie einfach index.php).
      Andere frage:
      Ist es so gedacht das der Zähler nur zählt wenn ein einzelner Artikel aufgerufen wird und nicht wenn jmd. z.B. nur die Hauptseite aufruft? Gibt es die möglichkeit die möglichkeit einzubauen?


      • Tom Tom sagt:

        Hallo Maniac,
        ja, nur einzelne Artikelaufrufe werden gezählt. Aber da schon öfter Anfragen danach kamen, muss ich es mir wohl wieder mal ansehen. Hatte da Probleme, das richtig zu filtern. Die Indexseiten wurden zu oft gezählt. Aber schaun wir mal. u1F609.svgz
        Eine single.php gehört laut WP-Codex eigentlich in jedes Theme. Aber man kann natürlich alle Seite über die index.php laufen lassen und dort filtern. Weniger Template-dateien, dafür unübersichtlicher im Inhalt.

  9. Tom Tom sagt:

    Hallo Simo,
    CpD zählt momentan NUR einzelne Artikel, keine Indexseiten. Vielleicht zukünftig, wenn ich eine Lösung finde. Dazu musst du nichts einfügen, sondern nur den Autocounter aktivieren.

  10. Alisher Alisher sagt:

    Good day!

    I translated "Count per day" into the uzbek language.
    Could you give me the e-mail where to send its .po files?
