PHP – Create shortcode to count post view in wordpress

Step 1:

Create PODS custom field for your POST / PAGE

Create a NUMBER field

Name it page_view (no capitalize)


Step 2:

Find your functions.php file in your theme > wp-content \ themes \ your-theme \functions.php

Step 3:

use the PHP as below

function create_view_counter(){

/*page_view will be the name of field created in PODS*/
$view = get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'page_view', true);

/* check if your field is empty */
if ($view == ''){
$view = 0;

/*auto add 1 view to your counter */

$view = $view+1;

/*update your counter back to WP database */
update_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'page_view', $view);

/*display the counter in your page */
return "View: $view";

//create the shortcode by the function above
add_shortcode ('viewcounter', 'create_view_counter');

Step 4:

Put the shortcode in your post content (if you don’t  put it won’t count) so better to put it where you want it to count. For example theme, or footer…
