Views - unique or repeat

Just a quick question, I cannot find the answer anywhere. Are the view count working as per unique viewer, or how many times views occurred including repeat viewers

Views do include repeat viewers, but there is a delay so you can’t inflate the view count by entering and exiting a topic repeatedly. Give me a moment to dig into the code and get the exact info.

Edit: Ignore what I said above. Looks like the code to allow repeat view counts was not added as planned. View count is “unique” in a sense. For logged in viewers, they are only ever counted once. However, anonymous viewers (not logged in) get one view per IP. You would see the view count increased by 2, for example, if a user visits a topic, then logs in to reply.


Ok, Thank you very much!
