comment How do I override the Message-ID header of wp_mail function?
Thanks, this looks promising! I tried changed get_the_id() to $post->ID as it wasnt inside of a loop, but thats not working either. I think it doesn't have access to the $post object when called as a filter like this?

comment Counting pageviews on high-traffic cached sites
Actually, we had to disable my solution because it was killing the server! So, sorry, no solution. We've resorted to not using pageviews for calculated metrics, and now using social share counts instead.

comment Counting pageviews on high-traffic cached sites
Ok, for now until I've implement a quick count php script that enters data onto it's own separate server and hence avoid locking the postmeta table. The count is called from a bit of jquery ajax, and the postviews table is going to be merged each day when traffic is lowest. I'm pretty sure this will reduce queries by a factor of thousands, and yet still give us daily accurate stats that wont be affected by caching. I need to clean it up a bit, but will post something here when finished so others can use it / abuse me for bad programming ;) Thanks to everyone who contributed so far.

Actually, I'm not sure how wordpress.stats would allow us to perform wp-queries sorted by post views, and I really want to avoid additional plugin overhead for features we dont need - pretty graphs etc.

Yes, as you say we'd like to use it in various ways with popular post widgets etc. We also already run on a separate dedicated DB server, but we avoid innoDB as I read about lots of incompatibility issues with Wordpress. I'm not a DB expert, obviously. Will take a look at Piwik though, thanks!

I want it in our local database so I can start manipulating the data - a widget with the days top posts for instance. I'd also like to avoid masses of API programming ideally.

I wasn't aware wordpress.com would work with caching systems, but great idea, I'll certainly test that out! I'm not sure how I would use Google analytics to sort posts though - I guess you mean using the API and writing something custom?

comment 4 single sites VS multisite wordpress
Yes, but I figure it would be easier to split the DB if they're on separate sites anyway. As it is, we have a dedicated server for the web site, and another for the DB.
