  1. The Page Hit Counter module for ProcessWire implements a simple page view counter in backend. Page views of visitors are automatically tracked on defined templates, with monitoring of multiple page views. This gives you a quick overview of how many visitors have read a news or a blog post, for example, without first having to open complex tools such as Google Analytics. This module quickly provides simple information, e.g. for editors. Or, for example, to sort certain news by most page views. For example for "Trending Topics". Works with ProCache and AdBlockers. With a lightweight tracking code of only ~320 bytes (gzipped). And no code changes necessary! In addition GDPR compliant, since no personal data or IP addresses are stored. Only session cookies are stored without information. In addition, there are some options, for example filtering IP addresses (for CronJobs) and filtering bots, spiders and crawlers. You can also configure the lifetime of the session cookies. Repeated page views are not counted during this period. It is also possible to exclude certain roles from tracking. For example, logged in editors who work on a page are not counted as page views. Sort by hits and access page views (hit value) Each trackable template has an additional field called phits. For example, you want to output all news sorted by the number of page views. // It is assumed that the template, e.g. with the name "news", has been configured for tracking. $news = $pages->find("template=news, sort=-phits"); To output the page views of a tracked page, use: echo $page->phits; Example: Tracking a page hit via API and jQuery If you want to track a template that does not represent a full page to automatically inject a tracking script, you can define allowed API templates in the module that you can track. Below is an example of how you can track a click on news tag using jQuery. This will allow you to find out which keywords are clicked the most. For example, you can sort and display a tag cloud by the number of hits. Suppose your keywords have the template "news_tag". The template "news_tag" was also configured in the Page Hit Counter Module as a trackable API template. Example PHP output of keywords / tags: // Required: the data attribute "data-pid" with the ID of the template to be tracked. echo $pages->find("template=news_tag, sort=-phits")->each("<a href='{url}' class='news_tag' data-pid='{id}'>{title}</a>"); Example Tracking Script with jQuery: /** * Required: Data attribute "data-pid" with the ID of the news tag template * Required: Send the POST request to the URL "location.pathname.replace(/\/?$/, '/') + 'phcv1'" * Required: The POST parameter "pid" with the ID of the template */ $(function(){ if($('a.news_tag').length > 0) { $('a.news_tag').each(function(){ var tPID = $(this).data("pid"); if(tPID) { $(this).on("click", function(){ $.post(location.pathname.replace(/\/?$/, '/') + 'phcv1', {pid: tPID}); }); } }); } }); So simply every click on a tag is counted. Including all checks as for automatic tracking. Like Bot Filtering, Session Lifetime, etc. Notice: Tracking with URL segments If the option "Allow URL Segments" is activated on a template, the hits are only counted if the base URL of the page is called. If you want the hit to be counted even when a segment is requested, you MUST configure the segments in the template configuration. How to do this can be found here. If you use dynamic segments, configure them as RegEx. There is currently no other option. The problem is that the Page Hit Counter hooked into the PageNotFound process. If URL segments are allowed but not defined, a 404 is never triggered. This means that the Page Hit Counter cannot be called. _______________________________________________________ Background: This module is the result of a customer requirement, where the editors are overwhelmed with analytics or no tracking tools were allowed to be used. However, a way had to be found to at least count page views in a simple form for evaluations. Furthermore, by using ProCache, a way had to be found to count views of a page without clearing the cache. _______________________________________________________ Pros Automatic Page View Tracking Lightweight tracking code, only ~320 bytes (gzipped) No code or frontend changes necessary Works with ProCache! Even if no PHP is executed on the cached page, the tracking works Works with browser AdBlockers No cache triggers (for example, ProCache) are triggered. The cache remains persistent GDPR compliant, session-based cookie only, no personal information Filtering of IPs and bots possible Exclude certain roles from tracking Ability to reset Page Views Works with all admin themes Counter database is created as write-optimized InnoDB API to track events for templates that are not viewable No dependencies on libraries, pure VanillaJS (Automatic tracking script) Works in all modern browsers Pages are sortable by hits Cons Only for ProcessWire version 3.0.80 or higher (Requires wireCount()) Only for PHP version 5.6.x or higher No support for Internet Explorer <= version 9 (Because of XMLHttpRequest()) No historical data, just simple summation (Because of GDPR) Segment URLs can only be counted if the segments are defined Planned Features / ToDos API access to hit values Since version 1.2.1 Possibility to sort the pages by hits (Request by @Zeka) Since version 1.2.0 Don't track logged in users with certain roles (Request by @wbmnfktr) Since version 1.1.0 Possibility to reset the counter for certain pages or templates (Request by @wbmnfktr) Since version 1.1.0 Better bot filter Since version 1.1.0 Disable session lifetime, don't store cookies to track every page view (Request by @matjazp) Since version 1.2.1 Option to hide the counter in the page tree (Request by @matjazp) Since version 1.2.1 Option to hide the counter in the page tree on certain templates Since version 1.2.1 API to track events for templates that are not viewable Since version 1.2.2 Changelog 1.2.5 Bug-Fix: When counting 404 hits, cookies are no longer set.

This allows a maximum counter value of 4.2 billion views (4,294,967,295) per page. If you need more, change the type to BIGINT directly in the database. But I recommend to use Google Analytics or similar tools if you have such a large number of users. _______________________________________________________ Download GitHub: ProcessWire Page Hit Counter (Version 1.2.5) PW Module Directory: ProcessWire Page Hit Counter (Version 1.2.5) Install via ProcessWire (Classname): PageHitCounter _______________________________________________________ Update information If you have used version 1.2.1 from the DEV branch, please replace it completely with the new master version.
  2. Hi Guys, I have seen some other threads that talk about this but nothing recent nor in line with what I need. I have basically created a page in which I am tracking the number of views. I update the counter which is tied to a field I added to the page's template that I am tracking. The field is hidden from the website admin and only used for this data. However, now I need to track it on a daily basis. I am thinking of keeping track of all time view total for 30 days and perhaps saving that and allowing the user to see the page views of last 7 days, each day as a number and then 30 days of data. This way if I want to build in reporting functionality I can. What I need help with adding a date to the page_views field but also, knowing how many page_views for today, yesterday, day before etc. Here is what I have so far and its working. Now I need to associate a date with every day. NOT every update of the page_views field. if (!$user->hasRole('superuser')) { $page->page_views += 1; $page->of(false); $page->save('page_views'); $page->of(true); } echo $page->page_views; Any guidance, help, suggestions is absolutely appreciated. Thanks!!!!
  3. Hi, I would like to start tracking my website visitors with Leady software. Searched the forum for similar discussion yet did not find the right answer. Could you please tell me how can I add their javascript to my website? Is there any step by step guide available? Any help appreciated.
  4. Hey folks, I did some digging to see if I could find anything on this, but I couldn't turn up anything. Does any one have a recommendation on how to track the terms that users enter in my site search? Thanks for any thoughts!

I do NOT need something like this: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/4602-flexible-downloads-using-pages/ Thanx in advance Nick
  6. SomeDay Tool I'm working on a series of restricted collaborative websites that are geared towards me working with my clients. It's a mashup of CRM, Project/Task Management, Tracking, Documentation and Configuration Control features. Everything is controlled by PW Roles. It's a tool that allows me to have a great deal of transparency with those I work with. The objective is to easily know the who, what, when, where and how of whatever is being worked on. I call it a Collaborative Resource Management System (CRMS) which has the nickname of SomeDay. I currently have one of these websites for each of my important clients and an additional one to keep track of my internal work. They all use the inherent native power of PW to produce specialized status reports. The websites intentionally incorporates the front-end and back-end of the PW platform. There is a lot of information stored within this type of website, what I like to call an Information Portal. You are able to easily query a status and get a good view of what's going on. This is a long-term ongoing project and I will update this post as more features/capabilities are added. Meanwhile, here are a few pictures of the CRMS Tool: Figure 1-3 (The SomeDay Tool for one of my clients) Figure 1 (Login courtesy of Adrian's Protected Mode Module) Figure 2, Homepage is a summary of all information Figure 3, Each item can be clicked on to get to detailed information Figures 4-7 (My internal SomeDay Tool website) Figure 4, (Login) Figure 5, Homepage Summary for my internal work Figure 6 , Homepage Summary Figure 7, FlagPages showing Bookmarks Figures 8-11 (Looking at a Task) Figure 8, Front-end view Figure 9, Back-end view (editing) Figure 10, Place for adding Priority or Statuses Figure 11, Private Tab only available to selected PW Roles Figures 12 and 13 (Site Structure) Figure 12, CRMS structural flow Figure 13, Tasks and Sub-Tasks can be added to Projects Figures 14-16 (Customized Reports) Figure 14, Review all items based on what type of work it is Figure 15, Review items based on their status Figure 16, Listing of all items with a status category of Active That's it for now.
  7. Hello everyone, Drama booking site that I made, is doing good now, thanks to you all guys for making it possible. Sometimes users report that they couldn't buy ticket due to some problem, we need to check where they ran into problem. Also, I need to save a log for every successful or failed transaction. I'm doing it with a txt file which is generated by following code: //Logging User Activity function microtime_float() { list($usec, $sec) = explode(" ", microtime()); return ((int)$usec + (int)$sec); } $filename = $config->urls->template."activity/".$user.".txt"; if (file_exists($filename)) { $handle = fopen($filename, 'a') or die('Cannot open file: '.$filename); //implicitly creates file $new_data = "\nPage Name: {$page->url} \nTime Stamp: ".date('d/M/Y h:i:s A')."\nUser Agent: ".$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']."\nIP Address: ".$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']."\n============================"; fwrite($handle, $new_data.PHP_EOL); } else { $log_file = "activity/".$user.".txt"; $handle = fopen($log_file, 'w') or die('Cannot open file: '.$log_file); //implicitly creates file $data = "UserName = {$user->u_fullname}\nPage Name: {$page->url} \nTime Stamp: ".date('d/M/Y h:i:s A')."\nUser Agent: ".$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']."\nIP Address: ".$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']."\n============================"; fwrite($handle, $data); } fclose($handle); //End of Logging Code The file that is generated shows output as follows: Page Name: /dramas/white-lily-aani-knight-rider/ Time Stamp: 30/Oct/2013 06:41:58 PM User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/30.0.1599.101 Safari/537.36 IP Address: 127.0.0.1 ============================ Page Name: /404-page-not-found/ Time Stamp: 30/Oct/2013 06:41:59 PM User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/30.0.1599.101 Safari/537.36 IP Address: 127.0.0.1 ============================ Page Name: /404-page-not-found/ Time Stamp: 30/Oct/2013 06:43:10 PM User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/30.0.1599.101 Safari/537.36 IP Address: 127.0.0.1 ============================ Page Name: /dramas/white-lily-aani-knight-rider/ Time Stamp: 30/Oct/2013 06:43:21 PM User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/30.0.1599.101 Safari/537.36 IP Address: 127.0.0.1 ============================ Page Name: /404-page-not-found/ Time Stamp: 30/Oct/2013 06:43:22 PM User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/30.0.1599.101 Safari/537.36 IP Address: 127.0.0.1 ============================ As you can see there are 404 records after every page visit. I don't know why it is happening, while browsing the site there are certainly no 404 errors. Also for each visit, the file shows two records, an actual page record & other 404. Anyone knows why is it happening?
