Possible to get Discussion View Counts Without Sending Stats Data?
Is there a way to have the Discussions CountViews field populated, without having to send stats data to an external site? Would enabling the stats plugin but setting $Configuration['Garden']['Analytics']['Enabled'] = FALSE; accomplish this? It was unclear from the Statistics docs page, which states
"Please note that disabling data reporting will cause the Vanilla Statistics plugin to cease to function as we will not have any data to report.".
That note makes sense, just not sure on whether the db tables still get populated. Or is there a better way to enable this if I don't need anything but that one field populated?
