The hotspots display combines read and write access statistics to display the current focus of interest within a wiki community. This is often used on the FrontPage to add a dynamic element to the wiki.
- red is used for write accesses (edits)
- blue is used for read accesses
- the current timespan for statistics is 8*24 hours
- the hotspot statistic is recalculated every 20 minutes
- the ordering is according to read accesses
- typically accesses to standard pages (like FrontPage, TestPage or RecentChanges) are filtered and hidden
- title: changes the standard title of the hotspot display
- e. g. [title=Focus Of Interest@2] (@2 extends the title to both columns; see CdmlTable)
- count: limits the number of pages that are displayed (default: 12, max: 50)
- amplitude: changes the maximum width of the statistical bars (default: 200)
- table layout parameters: CdmlHotspots builds on CdmlTable, so you can use most of its layout parameters
You can configure a reduction factor for pages that get abnormally high access rates (maybe you are hit by some article that links to a certain page). See an example for such a configuration in Context.
An administrator can use "action=bhs" to rebuild the hotspot-display immediately to reflect such changes.
