Here we have screens from 3 different months
Why publisher bonus is always the same? (im using the incremental payment value)June 6, 2015 at 6:05 pm #43506
I realize this may not be totally clear as it’s not thoroughly explained anywhere, but that’s the expected behavior. In fact, visits counting works like this as well. The datepicker at the top of the stats page only gives you control on the post publication date: you select a range, and posts published in that time range will be displayed. However, data related to posts/authors (visits, revenues, publishings, facebook shares, and everything) is not influenced by the selected range.
I’d also like to point out that this is needed to build a plugin that works, and does so in real time without requiring huge amounts of memory and computation power. Being able to display all the data above (visits, publishings, and so on) depending on the date chosen would require the plugin to keep track of the precise time a visit or a publishing occurred, and make data selections possibly different from page load to page load with little to no chance of chaching, and while this may seem fine on a site with 100 posts a month and a couple stats loading a day, this is definitely not possible for a site with 10k posts a month, dozens of authors and a couple stats page load per minute.
Hope this makes sense to you 🙂
Have a nice day,

If we can’t filter by date, what’s the purpose of the publisher bonus add-on?June 6, 2015 at 9:02 pm #43508
I mean, how can we know how many “other people’s posts” were published by that editor this month?June 7, 2015 at 9:10 am #43516
Actually, I’ve just looked at the code and what you ask could be achieved for publishings. I’ll have to think about it for a while because it would be the only payment type of which data would respond to date range changes.
My idea was simply this: every month, you mark an author as paid. This way, the publishings counter doesn’t get reset, but the due payment does go to zero, and next month data will shop up in the due payment.
Suppose we have this scenario: you pay $.25 per publishing. User George publishes 3 posts in May, 2 in June and 5 in July.
- At May 31st, you see 3 publishings have been counted: both the Total Payment and the Due Payment display $.75. You mark him as paid: all data stays the same but the Due Payment which goes to $0.
- At June 31st, you see 5 publishings counted: the Total Payment is $1.25 but the Due Payment is just $.50. You mark him as paid again.
- Ay July 31st, you see 10 publishings, with Total Payment being at $2.50 and the Due Payment at $1.25.
Does this help?
Have a nice day,

Yes, that is what we are looking for
It’s already on your code or you have to make some changes?June 7, 2015 at 8:44 pm #43532
Nono that’s already implemented, have you tried out the flow I’ve written above? 🙂June 7, 2015 at 9:09 pm #43533
Glad to know it’s already implemented, but I must be missing something, can’t find where or how to mark an author as paidJune 7, 2015 at 11:05 pm #43537
Check your user permissions in the plugin settings, there’s an apt check box for marking as paid features 🙂June 7, 2015 at 11:21 pm #43538
You are right it’s solved, thank you, but a way to know the number of published posts in given date would be greatJune 8, 2015 at 7:55 am #43555
I’ll see what I can do in future releases 🙂June 8, 2015 at 2:13 pm #43570
