Access Counter

The most simple example is:

Also, you can enter like this:

This page has been accessed for:
Today: {{counter|today}} / Yesterday: {{counter|yesterday}}
Until now: {{counter|total}}

The other example is this:

{{counter|total| person visited this page till now.| people visited this page till now.}}

Then exported like 1 person visited this page till now. (if there is 1 user), and 12 people visited this page till now. (if there are 12 users).
