View Count

  1. Oct 14, 2014 #1
    I'm now curious as to what exactly "views" means. I have understood it to be a count of all the separate individuals who have opened the thread during its life. If I open a thread for the first time, for instance, the view count will rise by one. It will not, however, change any time after that I open it.

    Is this correct?

    Yes that is correct

    Thanks, Greg

    Edit: one more quetion: the view count includes "guests" who have opened the thread, i.e. people who are not members and can't post?
