This is kinda strange. I've tested the counter on your test-forum
Topic Smilies addon test in this topic
is split in 3 pages.
Enter page 1: views + 1
Enter page 2: views + 0
Enter page 3: views + 0
That is the way it SHOULD work (so you say). I do not agree. I think entering a topic (on whatever page) should update the counter. Viewing the 2nd page of the topic is also viewing the topic. When you only count the visitors on the 1st page, you are missing out on your regular visitors who visit a topic a few times a day/week.
Some other strange experience:
Enter page 2 - Go page 1 - Go page 3 - Go page 1: views + 2
Every time you go back to page 1 another view is counted.
Could there be an other way to trigger this counter?
- Enter topic (on any page): views + 1
- Navigate within topic: no extra views
Does that sound unlogical?
