New Threads and Polls Always Show 12 Views
« on: November 29, 2011, 10:37:37 pm »
Hello, I have noticed that whenever I start a NEW thread or poll, the counter for how many times the thread or poll has been read always shows that "12" persons have already viewed it. Is this a setting in the control panel that I can change or is it an error of the system?

Thanks!

Tony

I didn't even know "times viewed" was an option for a Poll. I don't see it myself.

This count happens to be four, BUT, I just mere fractions of seconds before had posted the test and this is what the counter shows. No way 4 people viewed it in that instant.

Thanks

Interesting, I appear to have the same problem.
 
Here`s a link: http://lightercollectorsforum.createaforum.com/links/please-read-before-posting/
 
It won`t go past 12 no matter how many times I read/view the topic.
 
I`m new to these forums (more experienced on phpBB), but on some forums `View` and  `Read` as in `Read Count` mean different things, depending on your settings, permissions,  etc.
 
There`ll be a simple explanation - usually is! Just finding it!! Therein lies the problem!
 
If I manage to work it out, I`ll come back...
 
Edit: Typical - having just clicked on the link myself the count went up to 13.  ???
 
Bit like the time I called the plumber cos I had a leaky tap, and when the plumber arrived the tap had stopped leaking!

I'm not having any issues with mine. They seem to be working properly as it should. Some threads are into the 200-300 views while others a little less than that.


Maybe it's a glitch in the most recent update? If there was one that is.

BTW: I notice that it also indicates 3 guests are also viewing the topic. Again, how is this possible when I just posted it? I mean, literally, just posted it. Is it possible that the number it is indicating is somehow counting persons who may have actually simply been on the site at the moment I posted but obviously had not enough time to click on the new thread?  ???


Thanks

Well the guests are probably from search engines/advertising bots as soon as they see a new topic or if you browse the topic they pick it up.
