"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.

    Hallo Leutz,

    habe mir die Version 2.1 geladen und installiert. Alles auch gut gelaufen.
    Nur 1. er zählt nicht und 2. ich erhalte bei den Einstellungen die Fehlermeldung:

    Warning: Division by zero in /homepages/44/d163134788/htdocs/tanzen/wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/counter.php on line 307
    Max: 0

    Außerdem ist jetzt das Widget aktiv. Ein Bekannter vonb mir meinte er sehe nichts. Hmmm.

    Hoffe, Ihr könnt mir helfen!

    Es ist ein sehr schönes Tool und würde mich freuen, wenn es funzt,.

    Ganz liebe Grüße aus Kiel

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hallo Kisp,
      ich denke, der Fehler kommt daher, dass noch keine Daten da sind, weil er eben noch nichts gezählt hat. Gleiches Problem wie Lozanno gleich über dir. u1F609.svgz
      Zum zählen musste du entweder count() oder show() in dein Theme einbauen, oder den Haken beim Autocounter setzen. Dann werden alle Artikel und Seiten automatisch gezählt.
      Das Widget kannst ja noch solange auslassen bis was drin steht. u1F609.svgz

        Könntest Du so nett sein und mir sagen um welche datei es sich handeklt und was ich zeilenmäßig genau hineinschreiben muß? habe davon echt wenig ahnung.

        Danke für Deine Hilfe und Mühe


        • Tom Tom sagt:

          Ich zitiere mich mal selbst: u1F609.svgz

          den Haken beim Autocounter setzen.

          Ist die einfachste Lösung.
          Ansonsten müsstest du die single.php in deinem Templateverzeichnis ändern. Dort dann in den Bereich wo Titel, Autor und sowas stehen folgendes eintragen und hoffen, dass es klappt.

          < ?php
          if ( method _ exists($count_per_day, 'show') )
          $count_per_day->show( 'schon', 'Besucher', true, true );

    Hallo zusammen,

    ich hab mir nun eine Blog eingerichtet und wollte den counter per day installieren. Allerdings bekomme ich folgenden Fehlermeldung, wenn ich das Plugin aktivieren möchte:
    Error 500 - Internal server error,
    Ein interner Fehler ist aufgetreten!
    Bitte versuchen Sie es zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt.

    Es werden auch die beiden Tabellen wp _ cpd _ counter und wp _ cpd _ counter _ useronline nicht angelegt. Woran kann das liegen? Ich habe eine MySQL4.0 Datenbank bei 1und1. Schon einmal vielen Dank.

    Viele Grüße sendet der Photoangel

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hallo Photoangel,
      Error 500 kann eigentlich nicht vom Plugin kommen, sondern direkt vom Server. Ich krieg sowas zb. wenn falsche Sachen in der .htaccess drin stehen. Läufts denn mit deaktiviertem Plugin? Evtl. zu wenig PHP-Memory-Limit? Gab da ja bei einigen mit WP2.8 Probleme, da sie ans Limit gekommen sind.

  3. Templa Templa sagt:

    Nur Probleme mit der neuen Version, warum gehen denn die alten Templatecodes nicht mehr?

    User sind gerade online

    Kann mir da wer weiterhelfen ? Ich blick mit dem neuen krams net durch, vielleicht les ich auch nur falsch..

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Zwinkt dich keiner die neue Version zu nutzen. Ist die die readme.txt aufgefallen? Schon mal reingekuckt? Oder die Kommentare hier gelesen? Steht alles da. ZB. schon 3 über deinem.

    Hi again Tom,

    We have used your Count Per Day stats and plugin functions to display a front end page of "Popular Articles". We hope that this will provide our vistors with a better experience when they visit our site. Thank you once again for an excellent plugin!

    We used a really good company on called EyeForWeb, who did a great and fast job. I hope you do not object if I mention them. Good providers deserve promotion, I think.

    See it in action here:

    Click on the Menu tab: Popular Articles

    Many thanks,

    Hi Tom,

    I am investigating slow DB queries on our server that are contributing to Out Of Memory problems. This is one query that often takes a lot of time because some of these fields (or all of them, perhaps) are not indexed. Also, I do not understand why this query is required:

    # Query_time: 116 Lock_time: 0 Rows_sent: 2 Rows_examined: 94053
    SELECT * FROM wp_cpd_counter WHERE ip='' AND date='090714' AND page='620';

    I have obscured the real ip address in the query.

    What is the purpose of the query?

    Many thanks,

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hi Danny,
      it's the counter that calls every page load. It checks whether the current visitor is already counted on the current page. If not he will. But this table is indexed.

  6. Danny Danny sagt:

    I figured out the purpose of that DB query, Tom. You are checking for unique visits today, yes?
    So I added new indexes to the table for ip (first 3 chars only), date and page. This should make a significant improvement on SELECT statements and I think the overhead of maintaining the indexes will be insignificant.
    CREATE TABLE `wp_cpd_counter` (
    `id` int(10) NOT NULL auto_increment,
    `ip` varchar(15) NOT NULL,
    `client` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
    `date` char(6) NOT NULL,
    `page` int(11) NOT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
    KEY `idx_ip` (`ip`(3)),
    KEY `idx_date` (`date`),
    KEY `idx_page` (`page`)

    Best wishes,

  7. Bernardo Bernardo sagt:

    Hello Tom!
    I want to know if the visitors who visit ONLY the index.php are also counted, since the total number of visitors is equal to the individual post visitors' sum. If yes, where do I see this statistic?
    Thanks in advance.

  8. sophie sophie sagt:

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Hi Sophie,
      do you have checked the "AutoCounter" in the options? Otherwise you have to add the functions in your theme template.

      • sophie sophie sagt:

        Thanks! But i cant make it work. u1F614.svgz I have Counterize II Status installed also and on that one i can see 159 unique visitors today, but count per day still stands on 8. :S Is there someone i can email who can log in on my blog and help me with the problems?

        One more thing is that i cant add an image to a post... "HTTP error." every time i try. u1F60F.svgz

  9. jwqlb jwqlb sagt:

    danke für den guten counter.
    wozu sind im wp-widget eigentlich die felder "label:" da?
    was kann oder sollte man dort eintragen?

    mit bloggigen grüßen

    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Du hast in den Code geguckt?! u1F609.svgz Die sind nicht im Widget sondern in dessen Einstellungen. Du kannst ja wählen, was du anzeigen lassen willst.

  10. jwqlb jwqlb sagt:

    Q tom:

    verstehe ich nicht.
    bitte erklärs mir.


    • Tom Tom sagt:

      Ganz einfach. Widget zur Sidebar hinzufügen. Dann kannst du es dort "aufklappen" und Einstellungen vornehmen, wie bei vielen anderen Widgets auch.
