I have made a view getting the new content added and new comments

But i need to get its count and so i usedthe following code

$view = views_get_view('new_activity');



return l(count($view->result), 'new-activity/' . arg(2));

but i see untrue number related to the view page

how to fix it espicially using history_timestamp attribute of each row

the main problem is that the views gets , data and hide the viewed rows and only shows the unviewed rows which gives me wrong count

please help or advice with a better scenario

thanks in advance

count($view->results) will only give you the number of the results on the current page if using a paged View. Try using $view->total_rows instead, which will give you the total number of rows returned by the View:

return l($view->total_rows, 'new-activity/' . arg(2));

  • @Artem M. I tried that answer but the problem is how to know the unread comments and content for the user coz the rows gets all data and when rendering the rows i found the markup without content for the unread or new (Has new content ) Dec 12, 2012 at 7:49

  • @Mhmdgomma I suspect that the problem may be specific to the View you're using. You might want to paste its export to explain the issue better.

  • @Artem M. The view shows number of rows identical to the count but when seeing the view page the number of seen rows less than the total rows i see empty rows with the markup using firebug so the issue is how new content drupal deals with it another point of view how to get the count of new content and comments per user ???
