Why does the statistics module show that my homepage has zero hits? I have a custom guide as my homepage.
If you set a custom guide as your homepage, the general system statistics will show zero for homepage hits because that number is directly wired to the original homepage for your system - the index.php page - not your custom guide.
If you'd like to see the number of hits on your homepage guide, simply look at the statistics for that guide! :)
Go to Statistics > Guides > Choose the guide from the drop down list.
