A Joomla 2.5 Plugin to show the number of page views anywhere in your content
  • Joomla 2.5
  • plg_jpageviews
  • joomla 2.5

jpageviews_joomla_plugin_2.5

How it works -


  • It replaces a unique tag {*jpageviews 00 none} (asterisk inserted to prevent parsing) with the number of page views (hits) of the chosen article along, optionally, with the linked title to the page.
  • N.B. For the first 9 ids a leading 0 is nesscesary e.g 02
  • If the required page views (hits) is the currently displayed page then the number to insert is 00.
  • If you require another page then insert that article id number.
  • If you require a left or right float then use those words, otherwise use none.
  • The text boxes accept html so if you wanted a different text colour, font etc you could apply a class and style it in your css sheet or just add a span styling in the first and last text box.

    e.g. 1st text box - <span style="color:red;">The number of hits for
    3rd text box - visitors.</span>



jpageviews 2.5

Installation -


  • Install in the normal way via Extensions-->Install/Uninstall.
  • Enable the plugin via Extensions-->Plugin Manager.
  • Fill in any text you may want in the text boxes.
  • Choose whether you want the article titles and whether the title is linked.

Example -


Below you can see the plugin working if you refresh this page a few times.
The html for this is as follows - (asterisk inserted to prevent parsing)
  • {*jpageviews 00 none}
  • {*jpageviews 58 none}
  • {*jpageviews 22 none}
  • {*jpageviews 239 none}

A Joomla 2.5 Plugin to insert the rel="nofollow" attribute within outgoing links
  • Joomla 2.5
  • plg_metaNoFollow
  • joomla 2.5
We have successfully upgraded the Meta noFollow Plugin to work with Joomla 2.5. The "nofollow" is an HTML attribute value used to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index.
It tells the search engines not to count this link in their search ranking calculations.
This could be of use for your own search engine ranking if you had pages with many outward bound links.

You can download it here - Download - The price is €8.00.


meta_nofollow_joomla_plugin_2.5

How it works -


If the page is from a category enabled via the parameters the plugin is parsed unless the page id is specifically excluded. If you need all categories to have no-follow insert a    all   in the text area.

It also excludes any authors whose IDs are entered in the parameters.

It parses the page content for links.

It then inserts the rel="nofollow" attribute on any link that is not from the site, i.e. only external links.


N.B.  
As with ALL Joomla plugins this ONLY operates on content.
If you need the ability to make Menu items nofollow contact us for this solution.

Installation -


  • Install in the normal way via Extensions-->Install/Uninstall.
  • Enable the plugin via Extensions-->Plugin Manager.
  • Insert the category id of the articles you want to include the rel="nofollow" in. Insert  all  if all categories are included.
  • You can exclude particular articles by inserting their id in the 3rd text box.
  • You can exclude particular authors by inserting their id in the 4th text box.
  • Multiple id's should be comma separated, no spaces e.g. 3,4,5
  • You can choose whether the external links open in a new window i.e. include the target="_blank" parameter.




Joomla-2.5-nofollow-pluginThe links will be changed from -
<a href="http://www.GJCWebdesign.com">GJC Web Design</a>
to
<a href="http://www.GJCWebdesign.com" rel="nofollow">GJC Web Design</a>
