Strange question perhaps, but is there any way to change the number of "views" for a thread.

For example if it is currently showing "243", can we say, for example, change it to be "4354" or "23" if we wanted to (ie, make the number bigger or smaller? And then once we have changed that number, any further views will be added as normal?

Thanks

Not quite as user-friendly, but it can be done via a mysql command too:

UPDATE ubbt_TOPICS SET TOPIC_VIEWS = 'n' WHERE TOPIC_ID = 'n'

Change 'n' to the number you need.

:points at post 184493:

You have to update it on the post id, unless you want to dbdive and discover the topicid...

Yeh, I guess so; but it's easier to send them after the first post's id than to explain how to fetch things from the url wink

Easier how? I'd think you'd be at the topic id if you have a particular topic you're trying to change the view count on - a hover isn't that difficult if you already know how to do mysql commands wink
