I’d like to display a view count on a category listing page in Magento. This data looks like it used to be accessible via reports/product_collection but I can’t find a way to access it correctly.
I’d basically like to supply a product id and get the view count of the said product returned to me.
You can get the view count through the
// set $to and $from to an empty string to disable time range filtering $from = '2012-01-01'; $to = now(); $productIds = array(9, 35); // your product ids, (works as an int, too) $reports = Mage::getResourceModel('reports/product_collection') ->addViewsCount($from, $to) ->addFieldToFilter('entity_id', $productIds);
Each item in the collection is a
catalog/product instance with a views property set, so you can use
$product->getViews() to get the count.
If you don’t want to load the whole product model and only require the view count, you can get it like this:
$resource = Mage::getResourceModel('reports/event'); $select = $resource->getReadConnection()->select() ->from(array('ev' => $resource->getMainTable()), array( 'product_id' => 'object_id', 'view_count' => new Zend_Db_Expr('COUNT(*)') )) // join for the event type id of catalog_product_view ->join( array('et' => $resource->getTable('reports/event_type')), "ev.event_type_id=et.event_type_id AND et.event_name='catalog_product_view'", '' ) ->group('ev.object_id') // add required filters ->where('ev.object_id IN(?)', productIds) ->where('ev.logged_at >= ?', $from) ->where('ev.logged_at <= ?', $to); $result = $resource->getReadConnection()->fetchPairs($select);
This gives you an array, the keys are the product ids and the values are the view counts.
