In general, to see how often any page or pages on the Victoria Telecommunity Network have been visited recently, write a link following this pattern:
<a href="http://victoria.tc.ca/cgi-bin/urlstats?somefilepath">In the above pattern, replace "somefilepath" with the directory and/or filename of the page or pages you want to count visits to. A number of examples are given below.
Recent visits to somefilepath</a>
http://victoria.tc.ca/cgi-bin/urlstats?METhe symbol "ME" stands for your account. It is typed exactly as shown in the above URL and is automatically replaced by urlstats during the search with your account name.
For other pages on the Victoria Telecommunity Network, give the path of the document or documents relative to the info root (that is, the "top" directory under which all public VTN pages reside).
http://victoria.tc.ca/cgi-bin/urlstats?Science/index.htmlNote that either a specific file may be named or a directory. The urlstats script gives statistics for all URLs with filepaths that begin with the text that you give as the parameter (that is, what appears after the question-mark). So if a directory is given, visits to all files on that directory and in any subdirectories below it will be counted, whereas if a specific file is given, only visits to that file are counted.
If no parameter is given, the user will be prompted to type in the URL to search for, as follows:
http://victoria.tc.ca/cgi-bin/urlstatsThis will take you to a page that says "Enter a VTN URL". The status line at the bottom will read "This is a searchable index. Use / to search". At this point, you type "/", and the status line will read "Enter a database query: ". Simply enter the file path of the file or files for which you want to count visits.
