Add Number of Post Views

From IThemes Codex
Jump to: navigation, search

This function relies on the wp-postviews plugin. Download, install, activate and configure the plugin. Then, to insert the number of postviews in your layout, add the following code at the end of your functions.php file (but before the closing ?>, if any).

Code

function my_insert_post_views() {

    ob_start();
    if( function_exists('the_views') ) { 
        the_views(); 
    }
    $post_views = ob_get_contents();
    ob_end_clean();
 
    return $post_views;

}
add_shortcode('insert-post-views', 'my_insert_post_views');

Usage

Insert the shortcode [insert-post-views] in your LoopBuddy layout where you want the number of post views to show up.
