View Counter

View counter is a useful feature that a good website should own to provide statistical information. JNews has provided a built-in view counter plugin that we branch from the most popular view counter plugins. We have analyzed those popular plugins and implemented the pros into our built-in plugin. In other words, we can get all benefits from various plugins and implement the best practical feature inside JNews.

This plugin will be used on several elements on JNews such as post view counter, JNews – Popular Post widget, JNews – Tab Post widget, etc. You can also use the popular view by week, month, or year feature on Visual Composer and Widget.

On JNews V10, we have improved the view counter. With the new interactive statistic page, Users can see how popular their posts are directly from the account page. Specify which visitors can be counted as a view & better avoid false view count.
