Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template reports the daily page views for an article over a period of time (default: the last year), placing them in a suitable frame with a heading. It is typically placed on an article's talk page.


Basic syntax (annual data):
{{Annual readership}}

Template syntax with optional parameters:
{{Annual readership | days= | expanded= | target= | color= | scale=}}

Optional parameters

  • |days= (default: 365) can be used to change the number of pageview days depicted in the graph.
  • |expanded= can be used to override the default auto-collapsing of the message box. To prevent the graph from being collapsed on page load, use |expanded=true.
  • |target= (default: {{SUBJECTPAGENAME}}) can be used to simultaneously specify the page in the graph title and the page for which page traffic is displayed.
  • |color= (default: #00f) can be used to change the graph color; accepted inputs include HTML color names (e.g., red) and hex codes
  • |scale= (default: linear) can be used to change the scale of the y axis; accepted inputs: linear, log, pow, sqrt, quantile, quantize, and threshold
  • |width= (default: 800) may be used to change the width in pixels of the image
    Tip: Use width=570 to match standard Talk page boxed items; values outside the range 400–980 may be problematic.
  • |height= (default: 200) may be used to change the height

If further variations are desired, use {{Graph:PageViews}} instead.

Note about the graph title

If |target= is not specified, the graph title varies depending on the namespace of the page where this template is used.

  • Title if placed on an article talk page:
    Daily article pageviews
  • Title if placed on a page in any other talk namespace (e.g., "User talk:", "Template talk:", "Wikipedia talk:", etc.):
    Daily pageviews of {{SUBJECTPAGENAME}}
  • Title if placed on any subject page (i.e., pages in namespaces like "User:", "Template:", "Wikipedia:", etc.):
    Daily pageviews of this page

If |target= is specified, the graph title is set as "Daily pageviews of target page", with the target page linked.

  • E.g., inputting |target=XYZ would set the graph title as:
    Daily pageviews of XYZ
