How to use the plugin?

icon 48 article addWhen the HitZero plugin is installed and published correctly it will add (by default) two buttons in the Article overview section in the back-end of your Joomla!™ website.

 

• Clear hits for multiple articles.
The clearbtn button is added to the toolbar at the top of the Article view and this can reset the hit counter for multiple articles at once. Follow these steps to do so:

  • Select the articles you want to reset by clicking the checkbox in front of them in the article list.
  • Click the Clear All Hits button in the toolbar.
  • A confirmation screen will popup answer with Ok to set the hit counter to zero for the selected articles.

• Clear hits for a single article.
You can also use HitZero for a single article so you can work 'fast'. At the front of each article there's little toolbar with options like publish, archive, etc. HitZero adds a little button (curved arrow) to reset the hits quickly for that single article. In a few simple steps you can reset the hits to zero:

  • Click the curved arrow button ( curvedarr ) at the right of the star in front of the article you want to reset. 
  • A confirmation screen will popup answer with Ok to set the hit counter to zero for the selected articles.

That's all there is to it. Plain easy and anyone with the correct user rights can use it.

Alertwhen you have reset the hit counter to zero for a single or multiple articles this cannot be undone!

If you want to restore the number of hits you'll have to keep track of the number of hits for that article yourself. And you'll have to execute the correct sql-queries yourself. HitZero cannot do this for you!
