Most welcome to Fineshop Design!

As you know, Fineshop Design recently released Plus UI v2.6 which comes with more features if compared with Plus UI v2.5.1. Realtime Views Counter has been added in the Lastest Version, which shows the realtime views of your Blog Posts with the help of Firebase Database.

If you would like to enable it on your Blog, follow these simple steps to get started.

Note that it will not work in Plus UI older versions. Make sure you get the lastest template update.

Requirements

  1. Firebase Account
  2. Plus UI v2.6 Template

Enabling Views Count

Step 1: First of all create a project in Firebase.

Step 2: Create Database for your Project.

Step 3: Paste the following rules:

For Single Blog:

{
  "rules": {
    ".read": true,
    "BlogID_0000000000000000000": {
      ".read": true,
      "$post_id": {
        ".write": "newData.exists() && (data.exists() ? newData.val() == data.val() + 1 : newData.val() == 1)",
        ".validate": "newData.isNumber() && newData.val() % 1 === 0.0 && newData.val() <= 99999999"
      }
    }
  }
}

For Multiple Blogs:

{
  "rules": {
    ".read": true,
    "BlogID_0000000000000000000": {
      ".read": true,
      "$post_id": {
        ".write": "newData.exists() && (data.exists() ? newData.val() == data.val() + 1 : newData.val() == 1)",
        ".validate": "newData.isNumber() && newData.val() % 1 === 0.0 && newData.val() <= 99999999"
      }
    },
    "BlogID_0000000000000000000": {
      ".read": true,
      "$post_id": {
        ".write": "newData.exists() && (data.exists() ? newData.val() == data.val() + 1 : newData.val() == 1)",
        ".validate": "newData.isNumber() && newData.val() % 1 === 0.0 && newData.val() <= 99999999"
      }
    },
    "BlogID_0000000000000000000": {
      ".read": true,
      "$post_id": {
        ".write": "newData.exists() && (data.exists() ? newData.val() == data.val() + 1 : newData.val() == 1)",
        ".validate": "newData.isNumber() && newData.val() % 1 === 0.0 && newData.val() <= 99999999"
      }
    }
  }
}

Don't forget to replace the marked parts with your Blogs' ID.

Step 4: Copy the Database URL.

Step 5: Go to Theme HTML Editor.

Step 6: Find the following codes:

realViews: {
  databaseUrl: "",
  abbreviation: "false"
}

Step 7: Paste your Database URL, it will look something like following:

realViews: {
  databaseUrl: "https://example-rtdb.firebaseio.com",
  abbreviation: "false"
}

Step 8: Save Changes and refresh your Blog Page.

Showing Abbreviated Views Count

If you would like to display the views counts in Abbreviated numbers, i.e. 67.89K instead of 67894, you just need to follow simple steps.

Step 1: Find the following codes by going to Theme HTML Editor:

realViews: {
  databaseUrl: "",
  abbreviation: "false"
}

Step 2: Replace false with true as shown below:

Don't make any changes if it is already true.

realViews: {
  databaseUrl: "",
  abbreviation: "true"
}

Step 3: Save Changes and refresh your Blog Page.
