Page Counter Action

the _pages table has to have the following field added....

`hits` int(50) NOT NULL default '0'

and the counter.php code (save as a file in the action directory)....

// Get hit count
$result2 = mysql_query( "SELECT hits FROM ".$this->config["table_prefix"]."pages WHERE tag='$thispage' AND latest='Y'" );
$row2 = mysql_fetch_array($result2);
$hit_count1 = $row2[hits];
// Count is incremented if not your own page
if ($this->GetUserName() != $this->GetPageOwner($tag))
// End Get hit Count   Start adding hits
$hit_count2 = $hit_count1 + 1;
// End adding hits   Start Update Hit
$sql = "UPDATE `".$this->config["table_prefix"]."pages` SET `hits` = '$hit_count2' WHERE tag='$thispage' AND latest='Y'";
// $sql .= " WHERE `ref` = $ref";
mysql_query($sql) or die("Unable to process query: " . mysql_error());
// End Update Hit

// parameter show="off" or "no" being checked for
$show = strtolower($show);
if ($show != 'off' && $show !='no')
// Start output of counter
$result4 = mysql_query("SELECT hits FROM ".$this->config["table_prefix"]."pages WHERE tag='$thispage' AND latest='Y'");
$row4 = mysql_fetch_array($result4);
$hit_count3 = $row4['hits'];
echo '<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">';
echo '<tr><td><font face="verdana" size="2"><b>Total Hits:</b></font></td><td><font face="verdana" size="2">&nbsp;';
print "$hit_count3";
echo '</font></td></tr></table>';
// End Output of counter

Preventing the reset of the counter

If you only use the above code the counter will re-set to zero every time you edit a page (well, 2 actually...I said it was a "rough" count didn't I??). If you don't want that to happen you have to do the following changes as well....

In the handlers/edit.php file I changed the line (around line 35).....
$this->SavePage($this->tag, $body, $note);

$this->SavePage($this->tag, $body, $note, $this->page['hits']);

AND I learned (through seemingly bizarre but now understandable errors cropping up) that the order of the
variables is important relative to the SavePage() function (see below....which is why $pagehits doesn't follow
the $comment_on variable in the list of variables in the function but precedes it)

In the WAKKA.PHP file in the wiki root:
Around line 235, in the SavePage() function, the line has to be changed to
function SavePage($tag, $body, $note, $pagehits, $comment_on = "")

note that $pagehits has to PRECEDE the $comment_on variable

a few lines down, the following line has to be added....
"hits = '".mysql_escape_string($pagehits)."', ".

I added it after the line....
"user = '".mysql_escape_string($user)."', ".

And that's it should work pretty well.
