increment +3 instead of +1

I am using this plugin for increment the views. I put in the settings increment by 1 (which is suggested).
By clicking a topic open, he increases with 3 instead of 1
How can that happen?

    what does it increment by if you turn off the plugin?

    the plugin will increment when you click open, regardless whether something else is incrementing.

    there is s saying Lucky at Card, Unlucky in Plugins.

    I hope you are lucky in Love, because you don't seem to have much luck with plugins.

    BTW, I just tested the plugin in the off chance, you are reporting a bug.

    Unfortunately for you and fortunately for me, there is not a bug, and the plugin works as stated.

    yes, i feel bad asking again something but i do not understand it. When i disable the plugin the views doesn't count at all. It keeps staying at the same number. So that's the reason i choose for this plugin.

    I followed some topics about it here with the same problem. I also tried the option with .htaccess (php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off) but nothing seems to help. It is just not incrementing. So this plugin does increment but with 3 instead of 1

    I also tried to edit the plugin a little bit like this:
    $DiscussionView = $MyDiscussion->CountViews + $Increment ; //original

    $DiscussionView = $MyDiscussion->CountViews + $Increment -2; // edited

    But when doing this, he still increments with 3

    why not ask your host to turn off magic quotes for you in the php.ini

    have you verified if magic quotes is off or on?

    did you ever set it to 3?

    if so, your config.php is probably cached.

    see....

    and contact your host, if the plugin doesn't work for you. so you can resolve it without a plugin.

    emptying ini files and emptying browser cache has no impact if you have some form of php caching or cloudlfare caching your config.php.

    in that case re-read and answer that question.

    why not ask your host to turn off magic quotes for you in the php.ini

    have you verified if magic quotes is off or on?

    also try making changes .... as indicated...

    file an issue on github, views should increment without needing the plugin or wait till next release.

    the plugin works for most people as a workaround for:

    https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/issues/1899

    other than the info I provided already, maybe there is a developer in your town you can hire to look at your site.

    oke...i also edited class.discussionmodel.php and class.statistics.php like you mentioned in the topic but also without result.
    when disabling the plugin he doesn't increment at all and with enabling plugin he counts +3

    Oke, never mind, thanks for support @peregrine

    OK, i found something very important! I use Bootstrap theme and when switch back to Baseline theme, views is now incremented with 1. So next step is to find out what causes the problem in Bootstrap theme...

    Also tested with Bitter Sweet theme: increment with 1

    for the record I tested on bootstrap theme in my environment and increment view works as expected for every theme, including bootstrap.

    you have an interesting issue, unless you made mods, to bootstrap theme, I find it a bit hard to fathom, why the theme cause issues in your environment and not mine using same theme.

    Good to hear that @peregrine; that means it is not an issue with Bootstrap theme. I also can not explain why this is an issue, because the theme has nothing to do with the input in the database. The only thing i can imagine is that there is some kind of refresh when using the theme and therefore it counts 2 or 3 times extra in the database. This is very very strange for me, specially when you affirm that it works fine in your case.

    Pergerine, you made my day! I downloaded again complete bootstrap theme, deleted the old one and replaced the new one. And.....increment with 1!!! Conclusion: one of my own stupid modifications in the theme causes that problem. Glad it works fine now! Thanks for testing it. The issue is history now :D:D:D

    you deserve the smatching badge.

    and always clone your theme if you can, instead of making direct changes.

    then you could have tested with MyBootstrap theme vs. Original Bootstrap.

    just a best practice.
