Help > Forum > Topics & Posts > Topic Views
The Topic Views option causes the views column to appear on topics listing page. You can disable this option if you do not want users to know how many times a topic has been viewed.
Please follow the directions mentioned below to enable or disable the Topic Views option on your forum.
Note that views from search engine bots indexing your pages do not increment the topic views. To prevent manipulation, multiple topic views from the same IP address or user in a one hour time period are counted as a single view only.
