Displaying real numbers build trust for visitors!
Let’s say you compared two WordPress themes along with some statistical parameters like – Active Installs, 5 Star Ratings, Total s, etc. As these values keep changing every day it was a manual work to copy & paste values from the WordPress.org repository. But not anymore!
The WP Themes & Plugins Stats plugin provides an easy and simple way to display stats with shortcodes. You just need to add shortcode once and the plugin will automatically update the values with WordPress.org API.
Display Stats Using Shortcodes
Different shortcodes are available to display the following counts – for both – Theme and Plugins from WordPress.org repository.
Total Active Installs
5 Star Ratings
Total Active Installation of All Themes/Plugins [For authors]
Total Count of All Themes/Plugins [For authors]
The plugin provides global settings under the “General ” tab. You can format the stat value/ number.
Set an interval to check and update stats values
As mentioned earlier stats keep changing every day. You can choose a number of days for updations. The plugin will fetch the latest stats after this interval and update values on the website automatically.
Choose the stat value format to make it easily readable
Usually, installation & download count is a big number. So it is quite hard to count and read the actual value. Simplifying this large number with notations make it more readable like – a number 1,000,000 can be displayed as 1M/1 Million or 1000K/ 1000 Thousand.
Moreover, you can select a format to group numbers, like – 1,000,000 (comma) or 1.000.000 (dot)
Set a date format as per convenience
WordPress default date formats are available for customizations.
Connect to theme/plugins with WordPress.org API
Choosing a theme/plugin to fetch stats from is very simple.

Add it in a shortcode
The plugin will fetch stats via slug.
