Getting Started

Simply download and install the Pageviews plugin on your WordPress site. Right after activation, a views counter will be appended to all your posts and pages.

If you don’t mind fiddling with your theme’s code and would like to place the counter in a very specific place on your site, you could do so with a simple action, in your theme's single.php file, for example:

Total views: <?php do_action( 'pageviews' ); ?>

There are plenty of ways you can customize the output of the counter with CSS and JavaScript. Refer to our support forums and docs.
