  • Views increased by factor of 2

    What would cause the views count to be increased by a factor of 2? If I view a thread that has 44 views, when I refresh after viewing the thread, it's now 46. Happens consistently. Not familiar with how the calc is made nor where in the scripts to even take a look at it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Since you mentioned in this thread: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...threadid=49837 that you have a hack installed, uninstall all hacks and see if the problem continues.

      Cary, it's Firefly's Quick Reply Box, has 1 $ variable added to the showthread.php file, the rest is template related. I have a message into him to check on his thoughts.

      The purpose of my post here was to find out about the process, where it occurs, and how it updates the database. Can you elaborate on this? Might help me find the problem because I don't suspect it has anything to do with his hack. Not positive, just a hunch.

      Thanks in advance.

        I was going to check out your forum myself, but you don't allow guests to view it.

        Have you installed a hack that makes the forum tables/threads clickable via javascript? (i.e you put your mouse over it and the background changes color and you can click anywhere in that cell?)

        If so, that's your problem. The quick reply hack has nothing to do with thread views. In any regard, the error you're seeing is related to a hack of some sort. Ask over on vbulletin.org.

        Best wishes,
        Paul
