Hi guys
I just thought you would like to know that your statistics on Forum Find (up and running again) are wrong. They show that you average 0 posts a day! The same thing happened to my forum and seemingly what you need to do is update your Forum Find settings, you don't need to make any changes, just press Save Changes.
I hope this helps.

Thanks, Lynne. I didn't know about that.

Glad to see we've got some experts amongst us! I haven't got a clue what you're talking about... but whatever it is, I think you are on the right track.
I've also noticed that the stats can fall down to zero - even if the post has been viewed umpteen times before.
Not that viewing stats are terribly interesting. Posts interest me more - John, the dog!

Not what we're on about, John, but never mind.
Actually, try this: go back to the main page, look at the bottom for a blue link to "Find Other ezboards".
Type in something like "EFL".

OK! I see!
Hmm... still would like to know why the no. of views a post has had can drop...

Yeah, the "post views" are unreliable. I can take them out of the tables altogether, but there are some encouraging numbers on the main board page.
Maybe I could see if I can take them off the jobs forum?

I expect it irritates some people when they see their post got 18 views and two weeks later it's fallen to 0!
