Hit and Comment Count

How do I get the hit count to start counting hits? It just stays at 1. Also, I'm using Google Plus for my site comments. Can I link the count to the comment count section at the top of the page?

Hi Dammand,

Please check your site permissions to make sure anonymous could view content hits. Below are instructions to enable these permissions:

  1. Login your site as an admin
  2. Go to People > Permissions tab
  3. Find "Statistics" section
  4. Enable "View content hits" permission for Anonymous Users and Authenticated Users
  5. Save permissions

Regarding comment count issue, the theme does not support to display comment count from google plus at the moment.

Kind regards,
Will

Thanks for the info. The stats permissions are set to the correct permission. It's been like that for a while. Still nothing. Maybe it's the code?

But you know what. When I first switch themes it showed a comment count thinking about it. I wonder if I could just get the comment count code and put it in manually?
