Where can you see the view count on a page?

When browsing pages in the system I can see the history of the pages but it would be nice to see the view count and other metrics such as how often the attachments were downloaded. Is this information recorded at all? I know that other systems like MindTouch record them.

Hi, see http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Viewing+Space+Activity for details of enabling the built in stats tracking. A lot of people also use Google Analytics and David Simpson has a great blog post on how to set that up at http://davidsimpson.me/2009/03/18/tracking-atlassian-confluence-usage-with-google-analytics/. There are also plugins for Google Analytics (https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/G2G-GA-CONF and https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/me.davidsimpson.confluence.plugins.googleanalytics) and Webtrends (https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/WBTRNDS). Hope that helps, Andrew.

Thanks guys. These links are helpful but I think I'm looking for a page counter like the one at https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/ch.bitvoodoo.confluence.plugins.viewtracker (aside from analytics which you covered pretty well). I give that plug-in a shot and see how it goes.

there is also a tracking plugin from customware that works well:


Unfortunately it is not yet available for Confluence 4

Best regards
