Plugin counts one post view per session. Two components are available: Popular Posts and Views.

The popularPosts component can be used to display a list of top viewed posts.

  • postsLimit - The max number of posts to show.
  • postPage - Reference to the page name for linking to posts.
  • noPostsMessage - Message to display when there are no posts.

Views [deprecated - use post.views instead without any component]

    Depend what are 'news' in your case. If you talk about blog post you can simply do {{ post.views }}. If you talk about another plugin you can review this plugin's code and copy the aproach for another model class
