@kenygamer you're asking the wrong crowd, bud.
Does using the API increase topic view counts?
Hello, i am using the following two API's for a C# app to pull the recent list and get topic votes.. Since releasing the software i have noticed a huge increase in page views...
Does either of these two APIs in crease the view counts on topics:
If so, is there anyway to stop it from doing this?
/api/topic does increase page view
Hmm, maybe in this hook
Subtract a pageview from the topic if some value was passed in?
Ideally, you could create your own api call to send back topic data
Thanks.. As an emergency I just removed the topic call (I suspected it was that) every post in the recent list went from a few hundred views to 1k+ in half a day. There aren't enough employees in my department for that many views :). I was only using it to show up votes.. I would have just used the rss feed if I could have but it's hardly includes any information.
Subtracting from the view counts sounds doable..
