I'm working with the 2.1 alpha at the moment and had to do some tweaks to get things working.

I thought I'd share so you don't have to figure them out when 2.1 comes out.

public function PostController_BeforeCommentRender_Handler(&$Sender)

changed to:

public function DiscussionController_BeforeCommentDisplay_Handler(&$Sender)


$Comments = $Sender->Data('CommentData');

changed to:

$Comments = $Sender->Data('Comments');


public function PostController_CommentInfo_Handler(&$Sender)

changed to:

public function DiscussionController_DiscussionInfo_Handler(&$Sender)

Hope that helps!




  • THANK YOU. PostCounts have been broken for me for weeks! Thanks for finally getting them working!!!

  • You might change the &$Sender to $Sender - everywhere. you will probably be happier in the long run.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • Looks like this has solved the issue for me. Thanks!

    The whole thing can be simplified to just

    <br />class PostCountPlugin extends Gdn_Plugin {
       public function UserInfoModule_OnBasicInfo_Handler($Sender) {
          $PostCount = intval($Sender->User->CountDiscussions)+intval($Sender->User->CountComments);
          echo "<dt>".T(Plural($PostCount, 'Posts', 'Posts'))."</dt>\n";
          echo "<dd>".number_format($PostCount)."</dd>";
       public function DiscussionController_CommentInfo_Handler($Sender) {
       public function PostController_CommentInfo_Handler($Sender) {
       protected function _AttachPostCount($Sender) {
          $Posts = intval($Sender->EventArguments['Author']->CountDiscussions)+intval($Sender->EventArguments['Author']->CountComments);
          echo '<span class="MItem">'.T(Plural(number_format($Posts),'Posts: %s','Posts: %s')).'</span>';
       public function Setup() {
          // Nothing to do here!
       public function Structure() {
          // Nothing to do here!

    No need to query the databases again, when he data is freely available with he the author.

    grep is your friend.

  • Hey all, I just tried installing this plugin, running Vanilla 2.1.9 and made the changes suggested by @KezzB and @peregrine, but when I try to enable the plugin, vanilla tells me the addon was unable to be enabled because it generated a fatal error: "Whoops: there was an error."
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Use the code x00 has posted.

    ... but you would like to add

    public function DiscussionController_DiscussionInfo_Handler($Sender) {

    @linc: Wouldn't it be good to update the current PostCount plugin with this code.

    I would also add a postcount class, so it easier for designers to style it.

    echo ''.T(Plural(number_format($Posts),'Posts: %s','Posts: %s')).'';
