Is it possible to have and use Global Feeds?
Since we're getting multiple requests for page visits from our other websites on our DNN install, I used XMP to create a page visit counter; down-side is that it increments on every page visit and every refresh, etc. Not sure yet how to implement a per session based update or something similar for anonymous users.
Anyway, in order to do the page increment, I created a template which calls a feed. It's this feed which is calling a stored procedure to increment the page counter. If it's a new page visit, it inserts the info into a DB table; existing page, it increments the count.
I have it configured so that it inserts the portalid as well as the pageid so I can use this across multiple portals using the same dB table. But, for each portal I have to create a new feed and add the same feed information for each portal. I don't see a global feed option, even though there is a _global sub-folder within the XMP/Feed folder. I tried moving my feed to this location, but it didn't work as it should until I moved it back.
Anyone know of a way to accomplish this using the template LoadFeed option?
