#7567 new defect

Add visit counter to WikiStart

Reported by: rjollos Owned by: otaku42
Priority: normal Component: TracHacks

Cc: hasienda Trac Release: 0.11

Description (last modified by rjollos)

It would be interesting to have the VisitCounterMacro displayed on WikiStart.

It might also be interesting to add this macro to the bottom of the NewHackTemplate. Page visits might be a coarse measure of plugin/macro popularity.

hasienda, I saw that you had some recent discussion with the author of the VisitCounterMacro. Do you know if the macro works well enough to be installed on the trac-hacks site? I suppose there would have to be a 0.10 version and I haven't looked into that.

Michael, any object to my moving forward with this proposed enhancement?

My focus has been Trac 0.11 and above, as always, but I'll take a look tomorrow.

In general I'm almost settled to the idea of (nearly) obsoleting the macro, at least not make it mandatory for adding a counter to any wiki page. That's what the upcoming VisitCounterPlugin will be all about: Have instant, low-fuss page hit tracking for (at least any wiki page, and tickets too) right after install.

The macro is just too messy to use for general deployment, in the same spirit as TagIt() is gone in the TagsPlugin. I'll try to fix unicode issues, figure out, how to deal with ever-lasting sessions driven by AccountManagerPlugin's persistent session feature, a wiki page change listener for "onDelete" db clean-up, site-wide and wiki path selective statistics, and more.

Yeah, the plugin seems to make a lot more sense, and there is not a lot of sense on working on a plugin for 0.10 compatibility at this point. This sounds like yet another issue that will be blocked by the ever pending 0.11 or 0.12 upgrade.
