This mod was developed to enable the display of a selectable set of counters on the horizontal menu row (see clip below). They include:
- Total number of individuals in your database.
- Date of latest update to a person in your database.
- Total number of photos available on your site.
- Total number of media items available on your site.
- A link to 'Bookmarks' and a counter if Bart's Persistent Bookmarks mod is installed.
This is how the installed mod looks with all the available counters enabled. (Customised template 12.)
To see this mod live, go to my website.
- If your site visitor is logged in and has an entry in the database, clicking on the people group icon will take the user directly to their own page. If they are not logged in, they will be taken to your 'surnames' page.
- Hovering over any of the counters shows a tool-tip of what the counter is displaying.
- Clicking on the calender icon will take the visitor directly to your 'What's New' page.
- Clicking on the camera icon will take the visitor directly to your 'photos' page.
- Clicking on the folder icon will take the visitor directly to the 'all media' page.
- Clicking on the star icon will take the visitor to your 'bookmarks' page, but if you have installed the Persistent Bookmarks mod, a counter will indicate how many bookmarks have been saved by the currently logged-in user. If the visitor is not logged in, the counter will not be shown.
How to use
To enable or disable any counter, go to Admin | Mods and use the "Edit" facility in the Mod Manager.
