Does WP Most Popular work with WP Engine?

Unfortunately, WP Engine does not like plugins like WP Most Popular, and other popular and related post plugins, because they do most of the processing on the actual web server and not using a 3rd party provider. We use Javascript and AJAX to track views and because this makes an additional request to the backend server which is not cacheable, WP Engine disallow’s it.

There is no way around this unless we start storing post data on our own servers which we would have to charge for. We currently have no plans for such a service, but if you would be interested in something like this, do let us know. The more people that request this service, the more likely we would be to build it.
