Hi,

I'm looking for a solution to use full page caching (jotcache), but still counting and display the total hits.

When I activate the jotcache full page caching, the number of hits will only count up once in a while when the page cache is expired and have to be recached.

for normal Joomla! articles, I found a good solution, described in the topic below:

Joomla forum hits counter with full page cache

Is there a way to implement this solution for K2 items?

Hi. Yes if it works for Joomla! articles it can also work for K2 items. You just need to modify the query so it updates the K2 items table. In general, hits are there to provide a general image of the item popularity, not to provide accurate statistics. For such usage you are suggested to use a tool like Google Analytics.

Ok, I will try to figure out how to modify the query for K2 items.

Yes I know that the amount of hits is to provide a general image of the item popularity, but it looks strange when a webpage has serveral thousands hits, a main article only showed up 62 hits.

I think there are more people with this problem, and looking for a solution.

According to the link you provided the code should be:
<?php
// no direct access
defined( '_JEXEC' ) or die( 'Restricted access' );

if (isset($_GET['view']) && strtolower($_GET['view']) == 'item') {
 $articleId = (int) $_GET['id'];
 
 $db = JFactory::getDBO();
 $db->setQuery(
                        'UPDATE #__k2_items' .
                        ' SET hits = hits + 1' .
                        ' WHERE id = '.(int) $articleId
                );
 $db->query();
}

?>

Thank you verry much!!!!

This worked for me!


I installed a custom code module.
insert this code and exclude this module position from being cached.

Now every time the k2 item page is recached, the new hits are displayed correct.

Hello! Would you be so kind as to share the module that has developed? Because my great ignorance did not allow me to implement it myself.
Thank you!

@Petar Grgurev

I cannot know why this does not work. I was just asked to provide some code. I don't even know how Jotcache works. K2 includes also a module for custom code. Try to use that.
