Plugin / bbPress Simple View Counts


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

It works fine on low volume sites, however it does generate an additional db write on every page load so this will cause additional db load. This could have an impact on a high volume site, the truth is I don’t know what the affect might be. Tracking member views is likely to be more resource intensive, but only if you have a lot of members.
Sure, get in touch. The plugin works as I want it to so it is unlikely I will change it unless it breaks. But sure, feel free to make a request, the member tracking was added by request!
Yes, this will be added in a future version. Please do let me know if this is important to you and I will prioritise this.
After careful consideration I have decided not to do this. Tracking unique views is a whole different ball game and is not easy to do. Even forum software such as vBulletin shows a hit count. I want this plugin to stay simple. If you need to track unique views you are better off using Googe Analytics or WordPress Stats. I may add session tracking, so the count won’t go up if you just sit an hit F5. But it will if you come back at a later date.
I have no idea, I don’t use any. But let me know. I suspect the only way to make this work would be to regnerate the page on each load but that would defeat the point of the page cache.
Sure, where would you like it to show? I might replace the voice count as suggested by a user. But other opinions welcome!
