Very easy to install and set up. Much more accurate then the standard joomla module. Provides a nice breakdown and clean look on the frontpage. The backend module is great for quick stats analysis.
Love that I can block IP's and bots.

I like this simple visitor counter, it's easy to set up and runs with no trial-and-error excercises. Also nice the back-end module to go with it (sepeate download). I give it full mark.

This module was easy to instal and activate. Has some well thought out controls. Used it on Joomla 2.5.5 and it worked well. Well done with this.

This is by far one of the best visitor counters, however, if this component would have some styles it'd be perfect! :)

I am very happy with the visitor counter. In the menu of the counter you can change the language, for us is that Dutch. But where can i change the language "Currently are no guests and no members online" ?
I can't find it.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review.

You have to add a Dutch language file or edit the English file.

Hi, I must update joomla manually. I had joomla 2.5 and now I want to update it to 2.5.1.
With the 2.5 version, I could export the table without any problem but now CVNT doesn't recognize my visitors. I would like to keep all the counter's info. What tables should I export? Thanks in advance!

I like the counter for its simplicity and ease. I can configure almost everything from the administration, and only needed to change a few things in a Spanish translation to look fine for the site. I have a couple of problems: every time I hit reload, the counter keeps adding a visitor, and the number of visitors is always too high for the site, like over a 100. I don't know if it is a problem with the counter, or something else, but beyond that, the module is very useful and well written.

No issues. It works.

It would be nice to add IP and Flags of country visitors. Then it can be commercial.

Easily installed and running on two sites. Gives you what is expected of a counter: precise information, opt-out the bots, and no extra add-ons that distract from more important areas of your site. Yes, as others have said, I also missed the English instructions, but even still, it's very straightforward.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review!

PS: With the next Joomla! major release (2.5) the project website will be completely rebuilt in English. Thanks for the patience!

5 stars! Why? There are a lot of counters/stats modules in the JED, and believe me i tried a lot. All of them worked, but... this one is simply neat, no bling bling css and whistles, simply all the options you wished easy configurable by the module parameters. If you need stats wich you can simply integrate to your website, grab it! Thanks to the developer for sharing.

Iam using in three Joomla 1.5 sites. But its not working perfectly in Joomla1.6 site. While refreshing or reloading the page, hits get simply increased.
Best for Joomla 1.5 sites
Not recommended for 1.6
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review.

The version for Joomla! 1.6 uses the same code basis. Why don't you ask first in the forum for help? I can't reproduce the behavior on my test-installations.

Just now downloaded and installed this extension. I am usually hesitant to download extensions that aren't marked as "popular", but how do you know until you try it? Had no problems installing and I like the simplicity of the visitor count. There are plenty more options and even a contest that you can involve your visitors in. Maybe if my site grows I will utilize this feature.

Thanks for such a good quality extension.

I have been using different modules for a while now and was always bemuse at the hits I was getting because I knew they was incorrect. Joomla online Guest for example.

I looked at this module and thought well I read Basic German and thought what the heck give is a go.

Easy to install, over to module, the module is mostly in English great! I did not understand some settings, watched the installation video, bingo installed.
What I was impressed with is three options:
1: Block Bots
2: Set locktime
3: Activate Contest

This is exactly what a module should be,I used the compact view fitted my site a treat.

Thank you so much for a wonderful module.
