Recent Post Views


This plugin requires the WP-PostViews plugin to be installed and setup to work correctly. (

This plugin displays a widget in the sidebar with the most recently viewed posts over the last 2 days, the number of times they were viewed, a link to each, and images corresponding to whether they were «hot» posts or not (calculated as a percentage of the most viewed post).


  • As you see from the screenshot, you get a nice sidebar widget with posts titles, links to the post, and a count of the recent number of views.


  1. Upload recent-post-views.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Put the post in the sidebar via the ‘Widgets’ menu, save a title for the widget.
  4. Use the shortcode [recentpostviews] in your pages and posts. See FAQ’s for more info. Accepts «cat», «posts», and «days» as inputs.

Preguntas frecuentes

How do I use the shortcode?

The basic format is [recentpostviews], which will by default show a list of the top 7 posts, from all categories, over the last 2 days.
Options are «cat», «posts» and «days».
* «cat» is the category ID.
* «posts» is the number of posts you want to display.
* «days» is the number of days back you want the shortcode to query, as in «over the last (n) days.»

Example: [recentpostviews cat=»5″ posts=»10″ days=»3″]
*This would display the 10 most recent posts from category 5 over the last 3 days.

If you’re not getting any results for the shortcode, try changing the number of days.

By default, the «hotlevel» for posts is 75% or .75 in the shortcode. E.g., a post will not show up as «hot» unless it is greater than or equal to the post with the most number of views over the same time frame.

How can I change options, like what is considered a «recent» post?

Just add the widget and select your options.

I have multiple widgets, and some of them have posts that are viewed the same number of times, but one is not a «hot» post. What gives?

Whether a post is hot or not is dependent on the max number of views for any post over the timeframe you have selected. E.g., if you have a widget based on the last 3 days and one based on the last 7, the level for a «hot» post will be different. I’m planning on changing this in a future update, such that the max number of posts for a particular category will be calculated.

The number of views for my posts are not updating, why?

I actually had this issue myself, and discovered that it’s because the postmeta table was not updating the number of views. As a temporary solution, I installed the WP-PostViews plugin (at and enabled the option in the settings menu that said to register views from everyone, not just guests. Thanks to GamerZ for a great plugin, and for helping to fix this issue. If you’re having this problem, I suggest that recent-post-views should be used in conjunction with WP-PostViews.
