Support » Plugin: Page View Count » Varnish Compatibility

  • hello,

    Your plugin looks great, I was just wondering if it was in someway compatible with Varnish Reverse Proxy Cache? I would like to use on a high-traffic site which uses varnish, but as the pages are cached and served direct from memory, I would need some-way of recording each visit whilst still serving the cached page (probably easiest through a Javascript call similar to how google analytics work) and without using AJAX, as I don’t want to put additional load on backend.

    Then when the page cache purges, every 12 hours or so, the new stats will get updated upon the first fresh call to the page.

    Is this possible to do and if not could you introduce such a feature in future releases?

    I’ve just read your reply to a previous comment 2 months ago where you stated that you were unsure of whether it works with Varnish, but figured maybe you had tested it or someone had given you feedback?

    As a closing note, could you tell me how the page views are recorded? Ajax, JavaScript, or via PHP?
