for several weeks the amount of views of a thread has been the same as the # of posts in that thread + 1.

I dont think any of us mods will be able to answer that question.

Maybe Mike will know something - we'll let you know if he does,

Hmm, you know I never noticed that. Being an admin myself and having used this software for the past year on another board, it could either be a setting or a glitch - I do know that this version of the software has bugs and security holes in it, and has since been patched. Maybe upgrading to the latest version of it might help - who knows? It might also help with the seemingly unending number of spambots that have popped up here over the past several weeks. We had a problem with that as well, and ever since we upgraded, we have not had a problem with them.

It does work. It's just on a delay (each hour it updates). I have it set this way because it's less intensive on the server. I may change it to update in real-time though.

so its just a huge coincidence that in the last 2 months EVERY thread has been viewed just one more time than it has been responded to? its not working. take a look.

dig up any thread more than 2 months old and you will see the views all outnumber the posts by more than 1

The "Fantasy NASCAR League" thread I posted is not updating views... unless I'm the only one who likes NASCAR. :frown:
