    how to count the hit of post

    Count the post hit and save it to the database

    • Create a database table with fields postid, numberofcounts…


    onload of the post page , get its id and store it in the datatable with count

    On every load the count number will be increased


    Let us consider the table name is tb_hit_count with field postid , and numbercount

    global $wpdb;
       $table = $wpdb->prefix.'tb_hit_count';
    	$post_id = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT ncount,post_id FROM ".$table." WHERE post_id = ". $id);	if(!empty($post_id))
    		$newcount = $post_id[0]->ncount +1;
    		//echo $newcount;
    		$where = array('post_id'=>$id);
    		$data= array('ncount'=>$newcount);
    		//echo $cat_parent;
    	$wpdb->update( $table, $data, $where);
    $datab = array('post_id' => $id, 'parent_category' => 'golf-videos', 'ncount' => 1, );

    if the post_id is already in the table , we just update the count , else we insert the post_it values in table.
