I am using blog module to implement blog section in my website, I am not getting the count of the each blog. What is the variable that stores read count of each blog. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

The core Blog module does not track read statistics for content; that's the purview of the Statistics module.

To enable read statistics:

  1. Install the Statistics module.
  2. Follow its configuration link (/admin/config/system/statistics).
  3. Set the Count content views option to enable view counting.
  • Thanks, I did that. But in which variable that is stored. Because I am displaying blogs through template files. So which variable I need to print in template file so that I can see the read count.

  • You could utilize the statistics_get() function, but you'd be better off rendering node links which the module already adds the statistics count to.
