Description wiki 2006-04-20 13:26:29 UTC
The Apache logs cannot be used to count page views because of 
system load. But we still need some way of SAMPLING page views 
at Wikibooks. Wiki software comes with Hit Counters as a 
standard feature. I would like to request that the Hit 
Counters are turned on for Wikibooks but configured so that 
they are only activated with a template that is only allowed 
to be used on a sample basis. (ie: applied by an administrator 
to a small set of pages for 7 days max). The limit could be 
that no more than 10 pages can have a hit counter applied at 
any time on the whole of Wikibooks. There are only about 40 
major books in Wikibooks at the moment so we could rapidly 
determine which types of books are most popular, optimal 
navigation routes etc.
