Creating Visitors Counter in WordPress

Hello Friends, I was working on a project which was required to show visitors count on website, So I developed code for that and now I am sharing it so that if anyone required, can use it.

This code utilises get_option, add_option and update_option predefined wordpress function which stores key value  pair data in options table of wordpress. So here I am going to create visitors key in options table using add_option function and it will be incremented every time user visits the website. To show visitors count use [visitors] shortcode in page, post, sidebar or wherever you want.

You just need to paste this code in functions.php file.

or (if you want counter for specific page i.e contact page)
