Forgive me for saying so, but this seems like such a small minor thing to be holding you back from v3 goodness... is author view incrementing really that big a problem for you?

On the other hand though, great mod. Thanks!

Always one of the 1st MODs I put on a v2 forum.
Nice to see it make it v3, thanks BondGamer ;)

I think it would be a good idea to modify the view counter so that it ignores your own (the post creators) views. This would reflect a truer picture of how much interest there was in a topic because the original author tends to visit his post a number of times and that distorts the count.

Actually I'm surprised something like this didn't find its way into Olympus.

I agree. The original author often visits his posts after every reply.

I am really surprised this didn't get included in phpBB3. But I don't really mind, since there's a MOD for it. Thanks.

Change the first replacement line to

Code: Select all

if (($user->data['user_id'] != $topic_data['topic_poster']) && ($user->data['group_id'] != 6))
It should also stop BOTs from being counted. I have to test it further though.

I thought I already had that in this MOD. I guess I forgot to put it in. A new version will be posted soon.

Bummer, I would have appreciated this MOD if our forum even bothered counting the views of the author, let alone other members! :(
