    Hi, I'm using 3.7 and was just wondering if there's a way to display the number of times a blog post has been viewed. Is there something built into Sitefinity that would make this relatively easy? The only ways i've come up with so far are to tap into GA or use a txt counter.

    Hello Tristan,

    Yes there is a metakey View_Count that you can enable from the web.config. Note that you must use Sitefinity 3.7 SP4.

    <add key="Blogs.View_Count" valueType="Integer" visible="True" searchable="True"sortable="True" defaultValue="0"/>

    Best wishes,
