Hit counters are a feature of many applications, and allow some measure of the use (or popularity) of pages.

PhpGedView allows you to show hit counters. To set or unset this feature, you must have admin rights. In the Administration panel, click on Manage GEDCOMs.../ then Edit for the Configuration file. Under Display and Layout you will find Hide and Show...down the bottom of that pane is the option.

Data is stored in a text file in the index folder. If you look, it will have a name like xxxxx.gedpgv_counters.txt, where xxxxx is the name of your original GEDCOM.

Within the text file are lines like:

@I026@ 2
@I003@ 24

The first line is the counter for hits on the opening page. The next lines show the hits on individual's pages.
