Solved Prevent original poster from running up view count

Post by pdun459 on August 22nd 2018, 12:05 am

Hi. I just set up a new forum today and I have a question I haven't been able to find an answer for. When the original poster returns to the post to edit or for some other reason, the view count goes up each time. This skews the count. Is there a setting that will prevent the original posters views from being added to the count? Thanks.

Hello!
There is no way to disable the view count on the threads as this is just a simple numbers system that adds the views whether it is the original poster of the thread or a new member. You can use CSS to hide the view count entirely but then you won't ever know how many views a thread has or not.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
James
