This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Statify Widget


The Statify Widget shows the most popular content from Statify plugin made by pluginkollektiv. Fast and clear!


Plugin for visitor statistics with emphasis on privacy, transparency and clarity.

Note: This widget only works in conjunction with the Statify plugin.

Own content types

Own content types (Custom Post Types) are supported and can also be displayed.

Intelligent summary

Once there are different paths to a content, the widget adds them together and adds the calls.

New: period selectable

You can now choose an individual daily period for the most popular content. Just set in the widget.

Calls of individual contents

The shortcode [statify-count] can be used to display calls to the current post or page. With the options “prefix” and “suffix” displayed texts can be checked before (prefix) and after (suffix) the calls:

[statify-count prefix="Total " suffix=" calls." days="8"]


  • prefix: Sentence before views
  • suffix: Sentence after views
  • days: Inteval for view statistics

Result: A total of 243 views.


The following settings can be made in the widget:

  • Title
  • Content Type (Default: post )
  • Category (when content type post is select)
  • Amount (default: 5)
  • Show calls (default: No)
  • Custom text (Replace variable for views: %VIEWS%)
  • Number of past days


Friendly questions about the widget I like to answer under * Support *.



  • Statify Widget Result
  • Statify Widget Settings


Install the plugin [Statify] ( by pluginkollektiv. And then from the plugin directory “Statify Widget” install and activate.


  1. Load the folder “statify-widget” into the plugin folder (./wp-content/plugins/)
  2. Activate the plugin on your page
  3. Add the “Satify Widget” under Design > Widgets


Error: The widget does not find any entries

Statify has not added statistics yet. Wait some days to collect some statistics.

Show pages and posts together

Yes! Since 1.1.4 that works. Just in the content type widget: select “Pages and posts”. He then displays the default content types “post” and “page” together.

Show views of individual posts / pages or from site

This is possible with the shortcode and theme functions. Specifying a prefix and suffix is ​​not mandatory:

[statify-count prefix ="Total" suffix ="calls." days="8"]

The following functions return the number of calls for an article ID ($ post_id) in the theme. If no ID is given, the number of the current page will be returned.

if(function_exists('get_statify_count')) echo get_statify_count($post_id, $days = 0);

Example: <?php echo get_statify_count (); ?>

The total views of the page can be over:

[statify-count-sum prefix="Total" suffix="calls."]

Alternative it is possible, to call this in theme with:

if(function_exists('get_statify_count_sum')) echo get_statify_count_sum($days = 0);


Return all posts as WP Query

You this in your theme, for example as “popular post blog page”:

    statify_popular_posts(  $amount = 5,
                            $days = 30,
                            $post_type = 'post',
                            $post_category = 0);

* $days Range of days for statictics (0 = all days)
* $amount Amount of posts
* $post_type Post type (“post”, “page”, …)
* $post_category Category of the post, if post type is choosen

I do not have static page as homepage

No problem. A pseudo “Home” entry appears.

I changed the permalink structure

This changes nothing. The plugin takes every Statify entry and adds it together sensibly.

Change design

Just the CSS classes:
* .statify-widget-list {...}
* .statify-widget-element {...}
* .statify-widget-link {...}

Change list from numeric to points

If you want to change the list of contents (1st, 2nd, 3rd, …) to bullets, just add the following to the CSS:

.statify-widget-element {
    list-style-type: circle;
