EA Share Count – Prime the Pump

EA Share Count only loads share data when the counts are called. When you first install it, there won’t be any share count data. If you are using the share counts for a “popular posts” widget, you’ll want to gather share data for many posts quickly. This function lets you do that.

* Gather data on recent posts
function be_gather_share_data() {
ea_share()->core->prime_the_pump( 100, 20, true );
// 100 = total posts you want with share counts
// 20 = how many posts to process in one pageload
// true = whether to display a message indicating status (requires ea_pp() )
add_action( 'wp_footer', 'be_gather_share_data' );
