XF 1.5 Customizing the Forum Stats box

Hi Guys,

I asked a similar question in the past, but wanted to catch up and try to implement this. The forum stats box on my forum is really high because it is counting a subforum that has some RSS generated content. I looked into the templates and found:

$boardTotals.discussions
$boardTotals.messages

And wondered if there is a way to edit the content of those, or somehow otherwise adjust the number showing so it only reflects messages and discussions created as 'real' threads?

Thanks!

It would require an add-on to do it properly but a quick and dirty way would be to use xen:calc and subtract a value from both totals.

You would have to keep updating it manually though.

Thanks - I was wondering if each forum had a counter and could remove the variable using a calc.. but I guess not. How would the syntax read for the xen:calc?

There are counts for each forum but I doubt the data is available to that template.

The syntax would be:
HTML:
{xen:number {xen:calc '{$boardTotals.discussions} - 1000'}}
