Flarumite Simple Discussion Views

This is a maintained fork of michaelbelgium/flarum-discussion-views, largely based on the now removed v0.1.0-beta.8.3 tagged release.


One of the Flarum forums I manage, needed a lightweight discussion view tracker, with minimal settings and options. Turn it on and forget about it, so to speak.


  • Tracks how many times a discussion has been viewed and displays it per discussion on the discussionlist. Note: does not track unique views, rather every view, both as guest and registered member
  • Adds 2 sorting options: popular and unpopular
  • Adds 1 event which developers can listen for: DiscussionWasViewed
  • Adds 1 new permission where people can (re)set the viewcount of a discussion (default to admins)
  • Uses view_count column created on the discussions table, so should not impact load performance


  • Identify known crawlers, don't increase the view count for these visits
  • Notify discussion author if their discussion is viewed more than {configurable} times


Use Bazaar or install manually with composer:

composer require flarumite/simple-discussion-views
