view count not changing

    I recently migrated a 3.5M post/25K poster site from vB4 to xenforo. One of the users pointed out that the Views: number/counter isn't changing on the site for any of the threads. And there's plenty of traffic in those threads.


    After preliminary research, there's a cron job that needs to run that's triggered by javascript client, deferred.php. I looked in the admin/cron settings and the counter update job was scheduled to run once an hour. I changed it to run once a minute. It sure looks like it's being run once a minute.. I've loaded deferred.php via URL directly dozens of times.

    The counters do not change.

    xenforo 1.4

    Please advise me what can be wrong?

    There were 100 rows in the xf_thread_view table. As I finish this post there are 313.

    Since disabling the plugins, I have visited this thread about 10 times:


    My cron setting is for every minute to run the update thread counts job, but it seems to have reset itself to once an hour. In any case, I selected "run" from the pull down menu in admincp:


    Reload the forum page:


    16 minutes ago vs. 13 minutes ago.

    Thanks for looking at this.

    Sorry, but the cron setting was not reset. The cron job is running every minute.


    Next Run is changing each minute.

    The cron task for thread views is this one:


    Is that running?
