Site Module: Edit [Statistics] Statistics Display


Module Type:mod_stats

mod_stats provides a Module that will display a set of (very) basic web site statistics and information in a Front-end display of a Joomla! web site.



Preview: To check the appearance of the current Module in a browser-style window, click the Preview icon. A pop-up display page will appear. Close the pop-up by clicking anywhere upon it.

Save: Click Save to save any changes made during the current editing session, and return to the Module Manager screen.

Apply: Click Apply to save any changes made so far in the current session, but remain in the Module screen to continue editing. Once the editing session is complete click Save as above.

Close: Click Close at any point to end the current editing session and return to the Module Manager screen. Any changes made since the session commenced, or since the last time Apply was clicked, will be lost.

Help: Click the Help icon at any time to view this Help Screen.


Title: Enter a name for the Module being created. This will be displayed at the top of the Module display page - if the option to Show is selected below. The Page Title is also used by the Module Manager to identify it in its display list.

Show title: Select the No or Yes radio button to set whether the Title, entered above, will be displayed or not in the Front-end of the web site.

Position: Select the position in which this Module will be displayed, from the drop down list of all available Positions. These positions are determined by the Template in use and the menu=>Site=>Templates=>Module Positions screen.

Module Order: This option allows the place for this Module in the order of all Modules that are assigned to this Position in the Template to be set, and therefore its place in the Front-end display of the Template.

Access Level: Identify which User Group level can view this Module. Select from Public, Registered, or Special. See User Access Levels for further details on these.

ID: The unique Module Identification Number that Joomla! (MySQL) has assigned to the Module.

Published: Check this check box to Publish the Module. If there is no check mark in the check box, then the Category is Unpublished.

Description: Enter a description of the Module that explains its function in the open text field. The text will be displayed within the Administrator Back-end only and is for future reference purposes.


Server Info: Select No or Yes to set whether the Module will display details regarding the Server Operating System, PHP and MySQL versions along with the Server Time, whether Caching is active and whether or not the GZip compatibility is enabled.

Site Info: Select No or Yes to set whether information relating to the web site is displayed or not in the Module. If set to Yes then the Module will display information relating to the number of Members (registered Users) the web site has, the number of News items (Content Items), and the number of Web Links that are available.

Hit Counter: Display the number of Hits (unique visits) to the web site.

Increase counter: If for some reason it is necessary to increase the number of hits that have been recorded for the web site (perhaps to make it look busier than it is !?!) increase the displayed Hit Counter figures.

Menu Class Suffix: This field can contain a suffix that will be applied to the CSS classes for the Menu styles of this page. This allows individual Menu styling with relative ease. For example, if the suffix .foo is entered here, all CSS code elements in the CSS file within the Template for Menu styles will have .foo added to them. table.moduletable becomes table.moduletable.foo. Separate entries would then need to be added in the CSS file of the Template, for each corresponding difference.
