    It uses the default XF robot list.

    If the visitor is classified as a robot, it just silently fails the increment the thread view counter when they visit a thread.

    It would be great if you could make this work with the Media Gallery so it stops the increment 'views' from robots.

    I'ld love to.

    The major issue is I only have access to XenForo itself, without any of the official addons.

    Maybe put it on github? :D
    I will be able to add support for some of the add-ons (mine included :p)

    All my free addons are on github, and linked via the 'more info' link in the resource manager. Xon/XenForo-BotThreadView · GitHub

    I'm open to pull requests with features or bugfixes :)

    That would be great!

    I have removed sessions for bots. Does the thread view counter increase anyway?

    If there is no session, it doesn't consider the visitor a bot. This may need some work to support your case.
