    Is there any recommended method to get post view counts, either in the posts or on the manage page?

    I have found several plug-ins but they seem to ber very old. One was a 2005 version to a 1.x wordpress and no reference to MU.

    So, I would like to know how many times post A has been viewed. Any suggestions on how to do it?

    The post view counts widget that gamerz wrote works real well and in fact we use it to determine most read posts within our mu installs.

    can't give you a link as I'm on a locked down terminal and can't open up a news window. do a google search for gamerz and I believe it's called wp-postviews.

    Make sure you're using the version for wp 2.3 as he's forked stuff between the versions. Worked fine without any edits.

    thats - installed and working at on my blog. I really need to get some better skins tweaked for the family and stop doing the seasonal change out. Plug-ins like this which need a simple mod are a pain with theme overload :)
