"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.

You can use these shortcodes in the content of your posts to show a number or list

To use the shortcodes within a text widget you have to add add_filter("widget_text", "do_shortcode"); to the functions.php of your theme.

  • 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,

    ein Wunsch für die Zukunft: eine Möglichkeit, gezielt Länder von den Statistiken auszuklammern. In meinem Fall alle Aufrufe aus China, Taiwan, Russland, usw. wegzublenden. Dann müsste ich nicht laufend die IP's zur Bot-Liste hinzufügen.

    Sonst bin ich sehr zufrieden mit dem Plugin!

  2. Alan Alan sagt:

    Hi Tom, I got a problem with your plugin cpd.
    I'm using it since three years without any problem but a couple days ago started to not work at all, it counts just a few visits (2 or 3 ) per days.
    Usually I could see about 30 or 50 visits per day.
    I tryied to uninstall, delete database, reactivate the plugin but nothing happend...
    Any suggestion?
    Thanks for your work.

    Alan u1F60A.svgz

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      You could check the filter list. Perhaps there is an entry which blocks a lot of visits.

    • Russ Russ sagt:

      I may have the same issue as Alan. I've been using the plugin for several years. Today the daily count dropped from about 350 average hits to less than 50. I didn't make any changes so I'm not sure what would cause this...

  3. Jeroen Jeroen sagt:

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you for making this plugin. It works nice. I have one question though. On the count per day total overview page it does not show Brazil in any of the items. But when i click on the plug-in it self and settings, I can see that people from Brazil have visited my site. What could be the reason for that?

    Thanks for looking into this.

    Hi Tom,

    vielen Dank für das Plugin, richtig klasse, hat alles was man braucht. Nun habe ich eine Frage. Nutzt dieses Plugin Cookies? Müsste ansonsten mein Impressum anpassen.

    LG Astrid

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Ich behaupte mal, dass WordPress allein schon Cookies setzt.
      Das Plugin benutzt die SESSION-Variable. Und spätestens dann wird ein Cookie mit der ID gesetzt.
      Schreib halt rein, dass du Cookies benutzt. Liest sich eh keiner durch. u1F609.svgz

    How can i add the shortcode?

  8. Dennis Eisen Dennis Eisen sagt:

    Bei mir ist das Plugin leider nur auf Englisch. Obwohl die Seitensprache Deutsch ist und auch alles andere Deutsch.
    An was kann das liegen? :/

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Liegt im Verzeichnis locale eine Dann sollte WordPress das Plugin auch eindeutschen.
      Hast du sonst irgendwelche Übersetzungs- oder Cacheplugings im Einsatz?

      • Dennis Eisen Dennis Eisen sagt:

        Die Dateien sind vorhanden, aber keine Deutsche übersetzung. Weder im Backend noch Frontend.

        WordPress und Plugin sind in der aktuellsten Version installiert.

        • Tom Tom sagt:

          Du könntest die mo-Datei nochmal per FTP im binären Modus auf den Server laden um sicher zu sein, dass sie auch das richtige Format hat. Ansonsten, keine Ahnung. Mal mögliche Fehlermeldungen von WordPress anzeigen oder loggen lassen.

          • Dennis Eisen Dennis Eisen sagt:

            Das erneute hochladen brachte leider keine Verbesserung.

            Nachdem ich jetzt am Code folgende Änderung vorgenommen habe funktioniert das ganze Problemlos.

            // locale support
            //if (defined('WPLANG') && function_exists('load_plugin_textdomain'))
            load_plugin_textdomain('cpd', false, $cpd_dir_name.'/locale');

            Woran kann es liegen das beide dieser Werte "False" sind?

            • Tom Tom sagt:

              Alles klar, hab mich mal belesen. Die Sprache wird nun als Option gespeichert und nicht mehr in der wp-config.php definiert define ('WPLANG', 'de_DE');. Ich hab das noch drin, und bekam daher keinen Fehler.
              Du hast das schon ganz richtig gemacht. u1F44D.svgz

  9. Vicente Vicente sagt:

    Hi , I've a problem with the countperday plugin, when I active the plugin, the webpage does not work, it appears in white.
    If I have the plugin no active, the page works correctly.
    I don't understand what happens.
    Please, can you help me??

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Looks like an php error. So check the error log or lets show WordPress the error messages.

      • Vicente Vicente sagt:

        Thanks for your fast answer.
        the only error I see is that:

        • Tom Tom sagt:

          It's a message from your browser not the site.
          And i don't understand.

          • Vicente Vicente sagt:

            the page works ok.
            If I active the plugin, the page stop working and appears the image that I've send to you.
            If I remove the plugin, it works again.
            I don't know why it happens and I also don't know where is the log, but I can't use your plugin.
            I'm really interested on using your counter on my web, if you need, I can send you by mail a user/password to solve this problem.

            • Tom Tom sagt:

              check this site for the WordPress debug mode.
              simple add
              define('WP_DEBUG', true);
              define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
              to your wp-config.php will create a debug.log file in your content directory.
              Don't forget to set both constants to false after your tests.

                  Nothing with CpD.
                  Check tweetily-tweet-wordpress-posts-automatically.
                  Or deactivate all plugins, activate Cpd and check if it work. If so activate another plugin and check again. Perhaps there is an issuw with two plugins at the same time.

    Hallo u1F60A.svgz

    Frage Nummer eins: Hast du jemals meine Postkarte aus Dresden erhalten?

    Frage Nummer zwei: Die aktuelle Größe der Zähler-Tabelle wp380_cpd_counter ist 8.17 MB. Beim Versuch diese zu löschen und nur die Daten der letzten 31 Tage zu behalten, erscheint die Fehlermeldung: "Warning: Cannot set max_execution_time above master value of 30 (tried to set 300) in /var/www/web401/html/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/counter-core.php on line 1064".

    Habe ich serverseitig irgendwo etwas falsch eingestellt oder woran liegt es, dass ich die Daten nicht löschen kann? Danke und viele Grüße

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hallo zurück!
      1. Ja, danke, nur bin ich sehr nachlässig mit dem Posten.
      2. Ich versuche dort die zeit hochzusetzen, damit das Script länger als 30 Sekunden laufen kann und nicht abbricht. Ist nur eine zusätzliche Maßnahme. Du hast anscheinend nicht die Rechte dieses Limit zu ändern. Sollte aber weiter kein Problem sein wenn du keine Millionen Einträge hast. Kommt auch auf den Server an.
