[Closed] How are "views" calculated?
Views are still not increased. It makes the forum look inactive which is not good :/
Excuse my ignorance, but why is it that cache and wpforo don't work for this when all other forum software like phpbb and whatever works fine? Also, I can't remember having this issue in the past with wpforo and I've always used the same cache plugin.
Problem for me is that nothing works. I tried excluding in WPRocket, but that doesn't help. Views are only updated live when I turn of "object cache" in wpforo, but then things like "likes" stops working instead.
The way this is coded doesn't make any sense. Views on any forum should be updated live/once you refresh the page.
So is there any way to remove "views" because it doesn't look good when it displays zero views due to the caching thing. The code suggested doesn't work properly. It doesn't display right. Thanks.
Views do increase after I hit Delete all caches or when someone posts in a thread. But unless I do that, views will display as zero. I've had many different forum softwares throughout the year and I've never seen that before. Views are typically always updated on the fly whenever someone clicks the post.
It's kind of tedious having to delete all caches just to see how many views a post has received. Is there any way to change this? Thanks.
Thank you for the answer. Now I understand better why you have this approach. I think I will want to have the cache turned off though. Or even better would be if I could somehow remove views altogether because if no one is replying to topics it makes no sense to have views that will display zero. Is there any way to do this? The css I was asked to try to hide the views before did not work. It made the forum look weird.
And yes, I am using the latest version Version 1.9.3. I still have the mentioned problem.
