Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Plugin


This add-on allows you to display a list of channel entries that have been recently viewed by the user.

This add-on allows you to display a list of channel entries that have been recently viewed by the user. It is a two part add-on: an extension and a plugin.
You place the plugin in your single entry template, passing the entry id as such:

{exp:jp_recently_viewed:setcookie entry_id=”{entry_id}” }

Displaying recently viewed entries is as simple as using a standard channel:entries tag, adding the recently_viewed=‘y’ parameter, like so:

{exp:channel:entries channel=“doggies” limit=“10” recently_viewed=“y”} #125;
<a href=”&#123;url_title}”>{title}

This extension has served it’s purpose for the project it was written for, but there is an inherent limitation that I will address in the the next release. It is using the ‘channel_entries_query_result’ hook, which removes entries after the initial query has run. As such, it removes the ability to use a {if no_results} conditional. I am guessing this limitation affects other parameters and variables in channel:entries tag, so I will do my best to release a revamped solution ASAP (though I may end up losing the simplicity of attaching to the channel:entries tag in the process.)
