Solid plugin prior to WordPress 5.5, but it has a conflict with the new WordPress Update. I'll change my review if and when it is updated for WordPress 5.5 Compatibility. The other issue is that it must be counting bots because the visitor counts are extremely high. I'm using another plugin that seems to be providing accurate numbers. I mainly keep Live Visitor Counter active because the UI is pretty for viewers with a feature that shows "Live Visitors" that are currently live on the site.

Thank you for the simple and awesome plugin. The dark mode is great.

Looks much more premium than other visitor plugins. Happy you added the dark mode in the end. Visitor counter usually is in the footer and for some reason they are always dark.

Easily installable and does count something. Unfortunately, the strings in the widget cannot be translatable or customizable. Loco Translate finds only four translatable strings including plugin's homepage "" and the name of the author "Adam Z", but strings like "Live visitors" or "Visitors today" are hard-coded, so it cannot be used on multi-language sites.

I do must say that it is a nice plugin: 1. Fast installation, 2. Nice widget, 3. Nice graphic. However, the plugin does not work. I installed it on 5 different pages. I was really surprised when I could have seen in the morning that I had about 8000 visitors. Unfortunately, plugin probably collects all robots, viruses all stuff and not real visitors. It s a shame, as it is a nice plugin. Maybe beside a nice graphic somebody also focuses, on delivering real data to the customer. Good luck and I hope all will be solved soon.

Does what it says it does and it does it in a beautiful way. Love the Counter presets that you can choose from. Can't believe its a free plugin. ( please dont change that) What I suggest is to make the counts unique per IP.
