IPcount Plugin

The IPcount Plugin is for Grav CMS. It counts the visitors on your Website, excluding Robots/Scanners etc. It is inspired by Grav Plugin Iplocate


Installing the IPcount plugin can be done in one of two ways. The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred, but currently not possible - see Manual Installation)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install ipcount

This will install the IPcount plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/ipcount.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to ipcount. You can find these files on GitHub

You should now have all the plugin files under



To override the default configuration, copy /user/plugins/ipcount.yaml to your /user/config/plugins folder.

enabled: true

enabled is used to enable/disable the plugin. There is no way to selectively enable this plugin. Either it is on or off.

Data file

Visitor counts are stored in /user/data/counter/counter.json.

If you are updating from v1.1.x to 1.2.x, be sure to copy your old count data from counter.txt to counter.json. A sample counter.json file looks as follows:

    "count": 232,
    "days": {
        "210101": 58,
        "210102": 96,
        "210103": 78

So all you have to do is copy the correct number from counter.txt to counter.json :-)

Available Twig variables

Using Twig template

To show the cummulative number of visitors on every page, you can add the Twig function {{ counter() }} to a suitable template of your theme. E.g. in /user/themes/quark/templates/default.html.twig:

{% block content %}
    {{ page.content|raw }}

    Visitor count: {{ counter() }}
{% endblock %}

Inline in page content

If you wish to embed the counter inside the content of a page, you can add {{ counter() }} anywhere inside the Markdown of your page and add the following to the frontmatter of the page:

  twig: true
cache_enable: false

Chart with daily visitors

To show the visitor count in a bar chart, create a new page using the visitors.html.twig template. E.g. /user/pages/03.chart/

Additional Notes:

  • As of V 1.3.5, a Utility Script CountRotate.php is added in Folder cron which can be used to keep the Count Data File at a reasonable small size,without losing old Data - see comments in the File for Usage.
  • After Update to V 1.3.6, be sure to delete or replace visitors.html.twig Template in your Theme Folder, as this is now provided by the plugin (this hint can be ignored if you are not using a chart page).
