Before I go digging through the code, does anyone have an idea why views are not incrementing?

Perhaps the user's IP address is not being provided by the web server in the usual way? The code to debug is at the end of qa-page-question.php.

I had to comment out:

//(!qa_is_http_post()) &&

This works now. Don't ask me why.

//    Determine whether this request should be counted for page view statistics

    if (
        qa_opt('do_count_q_views') &&
        (!$formrequested) &&
        //(!qa_is_http_post()) &&
        qa_is_human_probably() &&
        ( (!$question['views']) || ( // if it has more than zero views
            ( ($question['lastviewip']!=qa_remote_ip_address()) || (!isset($question['lastviewip'])) ) && // then it must be different IP from last view
            ( ($question['createip']!=qa_remote_ip_address()) || (!isset($question['createip'])) ) && // and different IP from the creator
            ( ($question['userid']!=$userid) || (!isset($question['userid'])) ) && // and different user from the creator
            ( ($question['cookieid']!=$cookieid) || (!isset($question['cookieid'])) ) // and different cookieid from the creator
        ) )

If you have a reverse proxy or a load balancer at your network and it replaces the client ip address with it own ip address,

you can solve it by telling the server to look at the original ip address that stored in the HTTP header  (called HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR)

changing the file - qa-base.php

in the function qa_remote_ip_address()

replcae this line:

return @$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];



//return @$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
return $arr[0];
