How do I configure Logaholic to display stats for one page?

I use only one page for my website and use index.php?pageid to define what to show to the user. How can I get the stats for each of these page id's ?


Logaholic stores url's on 2 levels, with and without parameters.

By default, pages are displayed without any url parameters, i.e.

/index.html in stead of /index.html?parameter=1

But, you can still see your statistics for pages including parameters, if you open the "Top Pages Details" report in Logaholic.

However, some websites (or CMS systems) really only use one page to load all your site content. In this case, your pages may be displayed something like this:



In this case it makes more sense for logaholic to treat this url, including parameter as a regular page. Since the "index.php" part of the URL isn't really very interesting, instead you'll want to keep track of all traffic that comes through with a certain "pageid". Different scripts and websites use different file names (/index.php in our example) and parameter names (pageid in our example), so there's no way Logaholic can know which pages and parameters are important to you unless you configure that.

To do this, set up the "Dynamic Pages" section in your Logaholic profile.

It will allow you to identify any pages and parameters that Logaholic should look out for, and treat as a regular page. This will work with  any content management system. Most modern CMS systems have an option to rewrite your urls to something more decriptive. If that is the case, you won't have to configure the dynamic pages section.
