"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.

  1. fahirsch fahirsch sagt:

    This happens in one of my sites which is dedicated to the argentine elections on Sunday. I have had days with more than 5000 visitors, which is a lot in my case. In fact, when I wrote on the first days of June it apparently was too many visitors, the MySql server crashed a lot til I installed a cache and disabled several plugins because my host was threatening to kick me out. I suspect that the Count per day 1.5.1 tables became corrupted and I had to first disable it and then drop them (the tables).
    I don't understand the clean database option. Does it zero the table (no reads) as if I install Count per day for the first time?

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      "Clean the Database" don't empty or drop the table. It deletes counts of defined spam bot if you add a new one to the list. And it deletes counts of non exists pages. In case of delete a page or post after several days or month you don't need the count data.
      "Reset Counter" ist empty the table and deletes all data like a fresh install.

  2. Danny Danny sagt:

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you very much for v2 of Count per Day. I will enjoy using the feature that you implemented (comment #9 above). u1F44F.svgz

    Just one problem: when the count of visits reaches approximately 100,000 then Cout per Day just dies. It displays nothing on the dashboard. I have to clear down the tables and restart the count from zero. Any ideas?

    With best wishes,

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hi Danny,
      sorry, no idea. Where are 100,000? Total visitors? Visitors per day? There are no restrictions. u1F64F.svgz

      • Danny Danny sagt:

        Tom, we get approximately 100,000 unique visits each month and Count per Day always stops working after roughly 1 month. I did save logs for you the last time it happened but a disk crash and data loss means that they are lost.

        We are more interested in the most popular articles in the last xx days, so this is not a problem because will run a cron job to delete records that are older than xx days. If we reach 100,000 visits every 14 days I will be very happy u1F601.svgz

        • Tom Tom sagt:

          OK, but nontheless i have filled my table and test the plugin. Lo and behold i have seen your error. u1F603.svgz If wordpress gets too many rows by an sql request it need a lot of memory to create the array. I have 32 MB PHP memory-limit and the error cropped up by 40000 total visitor. Now i use a direct database connection without the wordpress functions. I hope it works without empty the table every 14 days.
          Try the Development Edition.

  3. Steffen Steffen sagt:

    Hi und zwar versuche ich auf meiner sidebar.php den counter anzeigen zu lassen.
    Leider bekomme ich ne fehlermeldung. Hier mal mein code.
    Kenn mich mit php nicht so aus, bin noch am einarbeiten.
    Fehlt vll zuvor ein code schnipsel.
    danke schon mal

  4. Danny Danny sagt:

    Thank you for testing a high row count, Tom. Your solution makes sense.
    I will install it now and let it run for several weeks to prove your solution.

  5. ofkoors ofkoors sagt:

    Ich habe mal eine Frage zu dem Besucherzähler. Bei mir klappt alles wollte ich ma fragen was ich machen muss, damit auf meiner homepage die gesamtbesucherzahl angezeigt wird. Habe leider keine Ahnung von diesem ganzen php usw., bekommt man das auch mit einfachen mitteln hin??

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Am einfachsten wäre das Widget in den Sidebar zu legen und dort ggf. nur den Gesamtzähler anzuzeigen. u1F609.svgz

      • ofkoors ofkoors sagt:

        Alles klar danke schön!!! Dann noch eine kleine frage, muss ich bei den einstellungen unter
        "Zählt automatisch Besuche auf Single-Posts und Seiten ohne Änderungen am Template"
        nen haken rein machen??? Versteh net ganz was das bedeutet??

        • Tom Tom sagt:

          Damit überhaupt etwas gezählt wird, muss ein Funktion aufgerufen werden. Wenn du den Haken machst, wird sie automatisch auf Einzelseiten aufgerufen. Ohne Haken, musste du sie in die single.php (und/oder page.php) selbst einbauen. Ich hab den Haken drin.

  6. jan jan sagt:

    Klasse Plugin! Danke.

    Noch eine Frage: Ich erstelle für einen Kunden eine neue Webseite, er möchte aber das die Besucherzahl der alten Seite in den Zähler integriert wird. Kann ich irgendwo die Gesamtbesucherzahl vorgeben. Das die Statistik dann futsch ist, ist mir klar.


    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Rein rechnerisch ist da nichts vorgesehen. Eben weil dann Sachen wie "pro Monat" und "pro Artikel" nicht mehr funktionieren. Darüber dachte ich nämlich auch schon nach um alte Daten loszuwerden und nur die Zusammenfassung zu behalten. Du könntest höchstens direkt bei der Anzeige was dazu addieren.

  7. ofkoors ofkoors sagt:

    Kurze Frage wieder, wenn ich mir die "Besucher pro Tag" Grafik anschaue steht ja oben links beispielsweise "Max: 15" und die gleiche Anzahl zum Datum von heute.
    Zeigt das also die maximalen Aufrufe der Seite an einem bestimmten Tag an oder wie muss ich das verstehen?? Wenn ich dass mit der aktuellen Besucherzahl von heute vergleiche stimmt das nur leider net überein...

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Genau DAS ist mir auch vor 2 Tagen aufgefallen und ich war verwirrt. u1F601.svgz
      In der Zusammenfassung werden Besucher angezeigt. Egal wie viele Seiten sie aufgerufen haben.
      Im Diagramm werden Seitenaufrufe angezeigt. Dort ist die Zahl also immer gleich oder größer, wenn ein Besucher mehrere Seiten anklickt. Ich hatte es falsch betitelt. Ist in der Dev. berichtigt. Das Max zeigt den Wert des höchsten Balkens an, damit man die anderen ein wenig einschätzen kann. Für genaue tägliche Werte kannst du mit der Maus drüber gehen.

  8. fahirsch fahirsch sagt:

    Having read the comment by danny and his 100.000 counts, I now see that the same happened to me (with the previous version of Count per Day).
    A suggestion regarding the Ø per day count. It seems to me that you divide the total count by the number of days elapsed since the start day. That isn't a very useful number as it averages to much. I suggest you change it to either the seven-day-count/7 or the Latest Count/Latest Counts - Days.
    It would be more related to what really happens.
    For example one of my blogs had an average of 3000 daily visits for the last few weeks. But for the next 6 months it will go down to about 300 daily visits. A weekly average would be more meaningful.

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hi Francisco,
      you have today, yesterday and last week as current values. Sure, i should calc any more with the collected data, but i think the important numbers are given.

  9. ofkoors ofkoors sagt:

    Wäre es dann vielleicht nicht sinvoller, in der Besucher pro Tag Grafik die Balken auf die wahre Besucherzahl zu beziehen, um zu sehen, wann man am meisten Besucher hatte??

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Kommt drauf an, was man sehen will. u1F609.svgz Aber es wäre logischer, da die anderen Zahlen ja auch Besucher anzeigen. Ich will beide Möglichkeiten geben, wenn ich effizientere Abfragen gefunden habe.

  10. Lozanno Lozanno sagt:

    Hi guys. I'm getting an error on COUNT PER DAY DASHBOARD

    Warning: Division by zero in /home6/temptat3/public_html/cancun/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/counter.php on line 311

    How can i fix it?
    Please help! Thanks in advance!

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hello Lazanno,

      it looks you haven't any count. So the "days" are 0.
      Check "logged user too" on options page and see a post.
      I think that should work.
