Show the number of views (page hits) in the camp26 latest news module
  • Joomla 1.5
  • Module mod_camp26_latestnews

The Camp26 Latest News module provides a nice sidebar listing of your latest articles.

With a couple of small changes you can show the number of page views as well.

Camp26 Latest News module Open file joomla_root/modules/mod_camp26_latestnews/helper.php in any text editor and go to line 131.
Add this line there after the $lists[$i]->name = htmlspecialchars( $row->name ); -
 
$lists[$i]->hits = htmlspecialchars( $row->hits );
 
Then open file joomla_root/modules/mod_camp26_latestnews/tmpl/default.php and go to line 44, although this depends on which $intregated_sys and $time_sys parameter you've selected.
If you've chosen another parameter then scroll down until you've found the appropriate one.
Change the php echo statement from -
 
<?php echo "<span class=\"sharedby\"> $shared_by $item->name ";
  echo JHTML::_('date', $item->created,"$date_time_sys", $offset); 
  echo "</span>";?>
 
To this to display the views at the right hand side -
 
<?php echo "<div style='height:20px;'><span class='sharedby'style='float:left;'> $shared_by  ";
    echo JHTML::_('date', $item->created,"$date_time_sys", $offset); 
    echo "</span><span style='float:right;' class='sharedby'>Views: ".$item->hits."
                      </span>
            </div>";?>
 
You now have this.... Camp26 Latest News module views
