Support for functionality to track content visits

3 days 15 hours ago #325689 by aptol
Hello, I like to inquire if your platform can handle this specification. We would like to prompt the visitor of our site if they have visited x number of
pages. When x is reached we like to show login/registration form. Can your software support such, so we can register and acquire more members?

Not out of the box, but it's doable with a few plugins. You've a couple of options on how you track your users visits. You can either do that using JS and cookies/localstorage or using PHP and logging to a database their ip address. That code would handle incrementing the hits. JS usage can be handled in CB Content Module as just a module or using CB Auto Actions to output JS to the page. PHP usecase would require CB Auto Actions.

As for rendering the login module it's basically same situation of either use JS to move the login module into view after their hits counter has hit your desired number or use PHP and have CB Auto Actions redirect them to the login page after reaching the desired number of visits.

So yes it is doable, but requires custom code. If you've no experience with writing JS or PHP this would prove difficult to implement.

Wow thanks for your quick response. So what would it take to achieve this, in time and cost?

That most difficult part is you'd need to know how to code that as we do not provide custom coding assistance here. As for tools that'd help with that you'd need CB Auto Actions if you want to handle it server side with PHP or CB Content Module if you want to try handling it client side entirely with JS (or some other means of outputting custom JS to the page).

Have you checked the JED (Joomla Extension Directory) for something like what you're wanting as there maybe something ready to install already available.

No i figured if anyone could provide this would be Joomlapolis out of the box, haha. I will continue my search or wait for my people in India, who are under Covid lockdown.

The below example would work in CB Content Module. It keeps track of their page views using browser local storage. At 10 views it'll redirect to the login page.

const limit = 10;
let views = localStorage.getItem( 'numberOfVisits' );

if ( views === null ) {
	views = 0;
}

if ( views >= limit ) {
	localStorage.setItem( 'numberOfVisits', 0 );

	window.location = '[cb:url location="login" /]';
} else {
	views++;

	localStorage.setItem( 'numberOfVisits', views );
}

Change the limit to whatever you like. Render the module on any page you want their view tracked. CB Content Module can also be purchased individually from our addons page below.

Would this be sufficient for your needs or are you looking for some sort of login modal window popup instead?
