'Visits' isn't counting right

My profile has my "Visits" count at 6, and I've been here a lot more than that... probably 50 at the very least. Something seems very amiss here.


  • I guess the number of visit are incremented once the transient key expires, and a new one is incremented.

    Which might be linked to:
    $Configuration['Garden']['Session']['Length'] = '15 minutes';

    OK, then I've only visited 46 times. :p

    It can't be explained by something like session length. I've been a member for over 40 days and I've been here nearly every day (multiple times per day), save a couple weekends.
  • Then, browsing the code, it seems to be updated only if you sign in (not when you were "remembered" via a cookie) :

    $UserModel->UpdateLastVisit is called in _Authenticate (from library/core/class.passwordauthenticator.php).

    And this function seems to be called only when you sign in (I haven't investigated a lot).

    Ugggh, that would explain it. Major lameness. I'd call that a bug because logins != visits. Thanks for the sleuthing @bean.

    Yes - definitely a bug.
  • Sorry for to rout an old discussion out of bed, but this issue seems still alive.
    My profile has my "Visits" count at 0.
    I always loged in with my google acount.
  • I'm on 802, madness. :)
