moving the hits widget into the post header and footer

I wanted to make a smaller deal of the views page widget, i was adding it as a full widget and it does not need to be that huge so moving from widget area to the top of the post. 

Move it down into this area

I think when you first add a feature to a site, you want it to be very visible, but maybe a more subtle approach is better for things like this, as it does not really matter to the viewer how many times the page has been viewed. 

PHP

// old code adding to widget
if(isset($hits->hits)) {
	$hits_card = new template("card-title.html");
	$hits_card->set("title", "Page Views");
	$hits_card->set("content", "<p>This page has been viewed <b>$hits->hits</b> times.</p>");
	$widgets->add($hits_card->output());
}

// new code adding to page template
$template->set("hits", "");
if(isset($hits->hits)) {
	$template->set("hits", $hits->hits);
}

Welcome

This is my test area for webdev. I keep a collection of code snippits here, mostly for my reference. Also if i find a good site, i usually add it here.

Join me on Substack if you want me to send you a collection of the things i have done or found or read for the week. Or follow me on twitter if you prefer, i dont post much but i probably should!
