Feedback on MostPopularPlugin

-- KoenMartens - 20 Jun 2006

Thank you very much for sharing this Plugin with the TWikiCommunity! And thanks for documenting the PluginBenchmarks.

Hi, for the default list I guess it would be better to include the $web also in the topic link

my $format = $params->{format} || "| \$web | \$web\.\$topic | \$views |";

Nice plugin. Though main problem with twiki stats is that it also inculdes "admin" kind of topics like WebRss and Topic Creator etc. How can we remove them!

-- GauravSharma - 03 Oct 2006

Great plugin. However common topics like WebHome and WebLeftBar always end up dominating the top.

-- JanneKario - 08 Mar 2007

When I was looking through the code I found that there is an (undocumented) parameter excludetopic which let's you exclude topics. It takes a comma-separated list, but be careful not to use space after the commas (it would be good to modify the code to remove spaces from the list).

Inside Statistics.pm, shouldn't $tmpDir check for $TWiki::cfg{TempfileDir} var, instead (or at least before) $ENV{'TEMP'}?

-- GuilhermeGarnier - 18 Jan 2008

When I run statistics-all (on TWiki 4.2) I get this error:

RCS: failed to create MostPopularPlugin work area: Permission denied
although I can see that the dir working/work_areas/MostPopularPlugin has been created.

-- ArthurClemens - 06 Feb 2008

If I'm not mistaken the plugin lets a lot temp files after its execution, which tend to fill the disk. I'd strongly recommend to fix that with something like :

--- Statistics.pm.orig   2008-04-16 15:24:05.000000000 +0200
+++ Statistics.pm   2008-04-16 15:27:20.000000000 +0200

Hi. I can't get statistics-all to run, TWiki 4.0.5, Red Hat 7.2. It generates a load of twiki-stats... files in /tmp, but nothing appears in the twiki/pub/_work_areas/MostPopularPlugin

Any ideas how best to debug this - there's nothing in any of the TWiki or apache error or debug logs.

Thanks for any help.

-- SteveJonesST - 09 May 2008

The author stopped maintaining this plugin. Anyone interested in picking it up?
