Bug Report? Message View Counter
« on: March 01, 2002, 05:23:29 am »
I don't know if anything can be done about this, but it seems that every time I view a message thread, the Views counter goes up by one. The problem with this is that I'm coming from the same IP each and every time. I would think that the views wouldn't increment with each succesive hit from a single IP unless the content of the thread has changed. Even then, the next view by the same IP should only count as one more hit. Comments?

You viewed it. You viewed it again. It was viewed twice. That's 2.

If you login from another IP address and view it again, That's 3.

What if 2 people on 2 different PCs view it, but have the same IP address? (I have 3 PCs on this IP address right now)

It's not a bug. It's a well planned feature. 1 view = 1 view.
