I'm using SimpleModal to allow users to click on a post excerpt on my homepage and popup a box showing the full post. However it doesn't count for an actual view of the post when this happens. Is there a way to make wordpress recognize it as a view? I'm using wp-postviews to track view counts.

  • Some links to the plugins would be useful. You know, some of us don’t know the source code of all plugins ever written. Strange, I know, but it’s true. ;) – fuxia Apr 6 '12 at 4:19
  • good point sorry about that – Pollux Khafra Apr 6 '12 at 13:36

Apparently the plugin does the logging inside the wp_head hook:

add_action('wp_head', 'process_postviews');

so make sure you call wp_head() in your pop-up box, or if you can't do that (pop-up is not a html document), then just call the function directly, like:


// the_content();  ?
