I am trying to modify this code to show only most viewed post in 7 days instead of all time

Recommended Posts

<?php query_posts('meta_key=post_views_count&posts_per_page=3&orderby=meta_value_num& order=DESC'); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <ul class="rpul"> <li> <div class="class="post-thumb wp-post-image" style=' '> <?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) : ?> <?php the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail') ?> <?php endif ?> </div><div class='cat-post-text'> <h1> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?>

First thing you should do is get a keyboard that that has return and tab keys. That will enable you to format your code into separate lines with indents so it is understandable.

When you've done that, repost your code using a code box ("<>" button in the toolbar).

If it's readable there's a chance someone might read it.

<?php 
   query_posts('meta_key=post_views_count&posts_per_page=3&orderby=meta_value_num&
order=DESC');

    if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();
?> 
<ul class="rpul">
    <li>    
        
            <?php endif ?> 
      
                <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title();?>

Please I edited the code as directed. Anyone to help make this only most viewed post of 7 days? Thanks

You're not really showing us any code.  Just some calls to unique functions that we aren't aware of.   Show us an actual query statement that uses a where clause that would do this limit thing that you need.

As ginerjm stated we don't have any insight into how the function query_posts() works or what are the valid values to use.

query_posts('meta_key=post_views_count&posts_per_page=3&orderby=meta_value_num& order=DESC');

Does that function allow for parameters based on date ranges? Does it exclude records with 0 views? Even if it does, we have no idea how those parameters are to be formatted. But, generally speaking the query might look something like this:

SELECT *, COUNT(v.id) as viewCount
FROM posts_table as p
JOIN views_table as v
  ON p.id = v.post_id
  AND v.date >= DATE(NOW()) - INTERVAL 7 DAY
ORDER BY viewCount DESC
