Topic View Usage

POP Forums measures usage by topic views, because that's where the real action is on your forum. Others count the views of profiles and topic lists and whatever. A topic view happens whenever a user (or robot) navigates to a topic. When they scroll and additional pages appear, that does not account as an additional view. You can monitor your topic view count at any time. The total updates overnight and is displayed in the management site. If you end a month above the quota for your current plan, you'll be automatically upgraded to the plan that will cover your usage.

  • Log in to manage.popforums.com.
  • Click the "manage" button next to the forum you want to monitor.
  • Under the subheading "topic view allowance," you'll see the current number of views against your plan's allowance.
  • Click the tab that says "topic view history" to see the breakdown by day for the current month, and your monthly totals below that.
