make counter work in view page | Forum

Ken Oct 29 '20

    public function playCount() {
        $itemId = $_GET['id'];
        $viewCount = PLUGINS _BOL_Service::getInstance()->increasePlayCount( $itemId );

        exit(json_encode(array('id' => $itemId, 'count' => $playCount)));

The counter Increase works in list page but Only shows in view page doesn’t increase count can someone tell me why please.....

Whatever you are counting should be +1

in other words

$val = 0;

$val = $val +1;

then it will increment by 1 each loop.  I dont know what that function does.  But  if the count is stored in the db thats fine, if not then youll either need to create a table to store it in or use $_SESSION variable to store it per visit or maybe with a cookie.  But db is better depending on what your doing.

Dave yours worked but the views wouldn’t save and wouldn’t increase after 1 but I accidentally figured it out using 

     $playCount = $playCount ++;


        return $item->playCount;

         $itemId = $_GET['id'];
