xstatistics is a contributed drupal module that provides useful statistics to user. There are two block that give the site statistics.

I found it useful to combine those two blocks into one and provide all the Site Statistics in one place.

Create a new block and paste the code below, select input format as "php"


$res = db_query('SELECT totalcount, daycount FROM {node_counter}');
while($count = db_fetch_object($res)) {
$count_nodes_view_tot = $count_nodes_view_tot + $count->totalcount;
$count_nodes_view_day = $count_nodes_view_day + $count->daycount;
