In this tutorial we will create a Simple Visitor Page Count using JavaScript. This code can trace the total visitor that visited your page based on the IP. The code itself use cookie to store a counter that increment every time the visitor visit your page. Feel free to modify and apply it in your system, this is a user-friendly kind of program

We will be using JavaScript as a server-side scripting language because It gives a greater control of your web page and extend its capability in a modern way approach. It is written in HTML or as an external sourcing to add some necessary features in your website.

Getting started:

First you have to download bootstrap framework, this is the link for the bootstrap that I used for the layout design

The Main Interface

This code contains the interface of the application. To create this just write these block of code inside the text editor and save this as index.html.

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html lang="en">
  3. <head>
  4. <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
  5. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css"/>
  6. </head>
  7. <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
  8. <div class="container-fluid">
  9. <a class="navbar-brand">Sourcecodester</a>
  10. </div>
  11. </nav>
  12. <div class="col-md-3"></div>
  13. <div class="col-md-6 well">
  14. <h3 class="text-primary">JavaScript - Simple Visitor Page Count</h3>
  15. <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
  16. <div id="result"></div>
  17. </div>
  18. <script src="js/script.js"></script>
  19. </body>
  20. </html>

Creating the Script

This code contains the script of the application. This code will count the times that the visitor visited a page. To do this just copy and write these block of codes inside the text editor, then save it as script.js inside the js folder.

  1. expiration = new Date;
  2. expiration.setMonth(expiration.getMonth()+6)
  3. counter = eval(cookieVal("total_visited"))
  4. counter++
  5. document.cookie = "total_visited="+counter+";expires=" + expiration.toGMTString()
  8. function cookieVal(cookieName) {
  9. thisCookie = document.cookie.split("; ")
  10. for (i=0; i<thisCookie.length; i++){
  11. if (cookieName == thisCookie[i].split("=")[0]){
  12. return thisCookie[i].split("=")[1]
  13. }
  14. }
  15. return 0;
  16. }
  18. document.getElementById('result').innerHTML = "<center><h3>You visited this page <label style='font-size:40px;' class='text-info'>"+counter+"</label> times.</h3></center>";

There you have it we successfully created a Simple Visitor Page Count using JavaScript. I hope that this simple tutorial help you to what you are looking for. For more updates and tutorials just kindly visit this site. Enjoy Coding!
