Search[edit source]

You can use wildcards (* or %) in your search expression. Examples:

ohio* - shows all pages that begin with ohio
User:* - shows all pages of users
list*episodes*  - shows all pages that begin with "list" and contain "episodes"

Search is merely restricted in main table (menu "Home") where leading wildcards are omitted.

  • search expressions are not case-sensitive
  • blanks are automatically replaced by underscores (_)

TOP 100,000 lists[edit source]

The TOP-Lists:

  • Overall
  • User
  • Talk
  • Portal
  • Project
  • Commons & File
  • Special pages
  • Help pages
  • Thanks

are created by aggregation on the basis of monthly hits (month) respectively hourly hits (Today).

Aggregation by the month[edit source]

At the end of each month a complete aggregation of all hits per day is performed. The chart toppers are selected in each category. (all languages and projects, max. 100,000 entries per category).

Aggregation by the hour (HOT Today)[edit source]

Subsequent to the hourly import of the raw datasets all hits so far are added up. Pages are in selection if they reached once 10 or more hits per hour. (all languages and projects, max. 100,000 entries per category).

24-hour statistics[edit source]

24-hour statistics are generated if a page reaches 50 or more hits per day. They can be accessed by clicking at the chart bar of that day.

NOTE this function appears to be disabled.

My favs[edit source]

This feature shows the hit ratio of a link collection stored on (user) pages. It is important that these link collections are placed within sections or subsections of the page; represented in the URL by "#" . Example:

Section:  My fav articles

This URL can be configured in menu »settings« VisualEditor - Icon - Settings.svg.

  • If the section header contains special characters (%,$,& etc.) it is recommended to use the table of contents (TOC) to obtain section's url. At this palace there's a special representation of these characters. ("."). See: HTML-Entities
  • Favorites resp. pre-configured lists may also be invoked by url parameters favurl and section → Url parameters
  • For more examples see: Wiki_ViewStats/Example

Url parameters[edit source]

All program options can be preset by url parameters. Therefor these statements are appended to base url: . Example:

The complete list of url parameters can be found at: Wiki ViewStats/URL-Parameter

Disambiguation[edit source]

If a disambiguation page is selected, a notification link is shown below the chart graphics. By clicking it all linked pages and their hit ratios are shown.

Further features for handling of disambiguations:

Update and time designation[edit source]

  • Updates are performed hourly according to the availability of the dumps. Usually these dumps appear approx. 35 minutes after their respective period. Import and integration into Wiki ViewStats take about 10 minutes. (Ex.: 11:00 o'clock dump is available ≈ 11:35 and fully imported ≈ 11:45 )
  • Exception is the update at 00:00 o'clock. Because daily aggregation takes place the import is carried along with the dump at 01:00 o'clock.
  • All time designations are Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Autofilter[edit source]

With this option activated, some technical entries are filtered. Examples:

  • api.php
  • index.html
  • Special:CentralAutoLogin/createSession
  • Special:CentralAutoLogin/start
  • w/index.php
  • Wsearch.php

(default = checked)
