"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
or in your theme files while adding e.g. <?php echo do_shortcode("[THE_SHORTCODE]"); ?>.
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.

  1. Ioannis Ioannis sagt:

    Hello. Tom..

    Thanks a lot for this plugin...

    I have taken your plugin and added a functionality to count-show hits per post/ total hits. I also added functionality to show these stats in the control panel...

    If you want to see it or even implemented in your original plugin, please contact me....

  2. fahirsch fahirsch sagt:

    Where is count-per-day 2.0?

  3. simone simone sagt:

    hi, after the upgrade to the 2.0 version, when i access the admin area i have this parsing error Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /home/xxx/Xxx/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/counter.php on line 955

    im using WP 2.8

    • simone simone sagt:

      my bad, i forgot to disable/reactivate, i resolved deleting and reuploading the plugin. thumbs up for this great plugin, my blog cant live without it u1F60A.svgz

  4. Naweed Naweed sagt:

    Hi, I updated the plugin - counts-per-day but theres an error message that I didnt get before. Warning: Division by zero in E:\domains\i\\user\htdocs\wp-content\plugins\count-per-day\counter.php on line 947


    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Do you have deactivated and reactivated the plugin?
      Can you change the number of columns you see on the CpD dashboard? Default should be 4 but in your case its 0.

  5. Manu Manu sagt:

    Can you please help me?
    I used the following code in my theme: (sidebar.php)

    Now what must I do that my counter works again?

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Wenigstens die Deutschen könnten deutsch mit mir reden. u1F609.svgz
      Welche Version benutzt du? In der 2.0 haben sich die Funktionen geändert und liegen in einer Klasse. Also musst du sie so $count_per_day->show(); aufrufen. count() müsste aber auf jeden Fall zum Artikel rüber, damit die postID erkannt wird. Oder AutoCount einschalten.
      Wieso benutzt du nicht der Widget? Würde die Sache einfacher machen. u1F603.svgz
      Mal ein Beispiel: Ist ja eine interessante Seite.

  6. Manu Manu sagt:

    Dankesehr für die schnelle Antwort.
    Die Seite find ich ganz praktisch, wenn man schnell Code tauschen möchte.

    AutoCount ist an. Da ich aber nur die gesamte Statistik benötige kann ich count() ganz weglassen oder?

    Das Widget ist mir leider noch etwas zu wenig konfigurierbar u1F609.svgz
    Möchte gerne die Anzeigenamen selber vergeben. Außerdem fehlt mir da die Option GetFirstCount().

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Zum Umbenennen könntest du die Sprachdatei ändern. Geht ganz einfach mit Codestyling Localization direkt im Blog. Ich hab absichtlich die gleichen Bezeichnungen wie im Dashboard genommen damit niemand verwirrt ist. u1F609.svgz Und getFirstCount() hielt ich nicht für so wichtig. Aber die könnte ich noch nachrüsten.

  7. Manu Manu sagt:

    Wenn ich var_dump($count_per_day); in der sidebar.php ausführe ist das Ergebnis immer NULL.
    Wenn ich dasselbe nun in der index.php vor oder nach get_sidebar(); ausführe klappts wunderbar. Was könnte das für ein Problem sein?

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Habs nicht getestet aber versuch mal global $count_per_day; ganz oben in sidebar.php um die Variable bekannt zu geben.

      • Manu Manu sagt:

        Herzlichen Dank, so klappts u1F60A.svgz

        Ich stell mir jetzt aber die Frage warum es in der vorigen Version ohne global funktioniert hat? global ist ja nicht gerade "schön".

        • Tom Tom sagt:

          Ganz einfach, vorher waren die Funktionen ganz "global". Nun liegen sie in einer Klasse, die als $count_per_day instanziert wird. Ist vielleicht erstmal etwas komplizierter aber sauberer.
          Aber ich entschuldige mich auch für die Unannehmlichkeiten. Ist natürlich dumm, wenn nach einen Update etwas nicht mehr geht.

  8. fahirsch fahirsch sagt:

    I got the divide by zero error, but it disappeared with the first count. Another error was the initial date: it appeared as "day.year" (missing month). Also disappeared with the first count.
    There is a lot of white space between "reads per month" and "reads per post".
    Another "error": the "last reads" appears to the left and just after "reads per post" instead of just after the Read per day chart.
    Something else. You use (in the English version) the word "Reads". I believe it would be more appropriate the following (please take into account that my native language is Spanish):
    Reads at all->Total visitors
    Reads today->Visitors today
    Reads yesterday->Visitors yesterday
    Reads last week-> Visitors last 7 days (last week, as I understand it, means the period from the previous Sunday to Saturday, and you mean the immediate seven days including the present day)
    Ø Reads per day->Visitors per day
    Counter starts at-> Counter starts on
    Reads per month->Visitors per month
    Reads per post -> Post count
    Last Reads-> Latest counts

    Finally: thanks again for your plugin!

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Do you try to move the metaboxes on dashboard? So you can "delete" the white spaces.
      "Reads": I'm a german and asked a friend in england. He says "reads". I could start a poll. u1F609.svgz

      • fahirsch fahirsch sagt:

        No, I didn't! Now I have, and no more white space.
        Regarding reads and visitors, and counts:
        In the two metaboxes, Last reads and Reads per post, they are the result of visitors that have read many posts each (hopefully!). Their total sum is not equal to the visitors of the site. Read is appropriate, though I prefer count.
        But the Reads at all (bad English), Reads per month and Reads per day, all refer to visitors counted only once per day, so Read is inappropriate. Count may be used but Visitor would be clearer.

  10. fahirsch fahirsch sagt:

    Something strange. Looking at reads per post:
    # 54 Salta: Elecciones provinciales el 06-09-2009
    # 5151 Misiones: elecciones el 28-06-2009
    # 45 Jujuy: elecciones 28-06-2009
    # 40 ¿Figura mal en el Padrón Electoral?
    Searching with php I saw that the 5151 is really 51.
    Doing a copy of the section it gave me as if there where a line with no post that had 51 reads.
    I then began changing the Last Reads-days option to see when that happened.
    Even stranger. Now the line that was 5151 is ok and another has "changed"
    # 51 Misiones: elecciones el 28-06-2009
    # 50 Salta: Elecciones provinciales el 06-09-2009
    # 45 Jujuy: elecciones 28-06-2009
    # 3940 ¿Figura mal en el Padrón Electoral?
    # 37 ¿Votar cada cuatro años?
    # 33 Mendoza: elecciones el 28-06-2009

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Oh Francisco, should i establish a hotline for you? u1F601.svgz
      The problem with non exist posts i had too. I think the "double numbers" comes with the new floating css style.
      You can delete these "no post counter" by clean the database on options page.
