XF 1.3 Xenforo "Log and count visits" with Custom XF Template

I've currently got a page "Friend Codes" which from the admin panel is set to "Log and count" page views - however, the page itself needed to use php callbacks and the like, so using the PHP callback tab I had it take on a XenForo template of my own.

However, since it is using a Xenforo Template of my own, the place where you'd normally see things like the "page views" and "social media" buttons are no longer present - I was wondering how I would go about checking/counting the page views for the page with a custom template.

Have a look at the pagenode_container template. The $page value is passed to you so you can use the same output in the template (provided you pass $page to it).
