    Hi,

    Is there a way to exclude nodes from message count stats? I have a few that are fed via RSS and producing a high number of messages.

    Also, it seemed that when I deleted these messages the message count remained at the same number - is that standard or does it change later due to caching etc?

    Thanks

    Under the [Forum Options] tab for the node:

    Thanks - I unchecked the nodes, but the message count remained the same will this simply not increase from now, or is this counting from a different source?:

    The counts will no longer increase.

    It would require a query to change it, I believe there may be a guide in the resources.

    Hi @Liam W does this work with v1.4 or will my forum self destruct?

    It's best to ask in the add-on thread, but we're running 1.4.5 with no problems from it.

    I think there are some crossed wires here. It appears that the reference is to the forum-wide counts ("forum statistics"), not user-specific counts. There's no way to skip certain forums in these counts; it would require custom development.

    Yes, that's what I'm looking at.

    But is it also correct that deleting the posts in those forums does not affect the forum statistics? It seemed that way, which is odd..

    The statistics are only updated periodically, so the global count won't be updated instantly.
