I am on version 1.7.7 and have looks at several thread about view count and done what they say to do. Below are the threads that I read.
It didn't do anything for me. I think that #2 is the issue. How can you show who is viewing each thread in live-time and not show view count in real-time.
@Robert Have you seen this post. We are getting over 100 views on this post and it only shows 22. PLEASE HELP
Please note that the wpForo topic page views counting is based on Unique IPs, so if the same suer go to the same topic the number of views is not increased. It should the number of unique visits. This is why you see 22 not 100.
Even more, wpForo has built-in topic viewing logs so it also checks the logs, if a user have already visited this topic the new visit will not be counted. So even if you change your IP address the count will not be increased if the topic visit log exists for you.
Also, the page view number is not updated live-time. It's cached for increasing the performance, it's updated once a new like, up vote, topic or post is added or in other actions.
And yes, VereK is correct you can remove some of those filters using my instruction: https://wpforo.com/community/postid/29050/
