View Full Version : Views Counter

My overall VIEWS as shown on the index page goes backwards at times.
My current Statistics show Views 97,605 but in the admin page, it shows Total Views 155,826.
Are deleted ad views being subtracted from the view counter?

Ads on the main sites should be just non expired ads. In statistics it is everything in the site right now so that explains your difference between stats and your admin which shows everything

Thanks for the quick reply. I thought I had done something wrong.
Like any web site view counter, it might be best to show the users the total count for all ads ever. I'm not sure they would understand just showing a count for what's on line.
As used in a photo gallery, probably posts don't get deleted so much, but classified ads are on and off like a light bulb.
Is this also true of the "Items Sold" and "Value of Items Sold" lines?
Are they for all ads ever or only the current ads in the system?
There might be a need for a different reporting method in classified ads compared to PhotoPost reviews or PhotoPost photo albums. In the classifieds, what has happened in the past is important to draw new users, whereas in the other two applications, only what is current is important.

items sold and value comes from your stats table
The views etc come from the number of active ads on the site. There is no need to show people counts from expired ads.
