    I’m just testing and discovered that I am now lhaley instead of Linda from Myrtle Beach.  That’s ok because we are officially moving from the beach next Wed.!!  

    This will take some time to get used to but it’s interesting seeing how many times a post has been viewed and how many are online. If one person views a post twice does it go down as one view or two?

    I just scanned downand saw that you can be alerted if people reply. That is a great addition!

      Hi Linda,

      I think I can answer your question, I clicked on your post several times to test where it showed as more than one view and it didn’t so I think it only records the first time an individual clicks on the post. Good luck with your move.

       

      Take care, Carver

      The number of views is calculated by the number of times the page is viewed.  So if you go away from the page and then come back, it will count as 2 views.

        Yes that is correct.  Every time you go into the page, it adds another view to the count.
