    With a previous version of the forum software, attachments had a "view count" or "download count" that indicated how many times the attachment had been viewed or downloaded. This disappeared when the new forum software was installed.

    I see that a "view count" has now re-appeared for attachments, but for me the count is always zero. Is this still a "work in progress"?

    quote from xf-dev: As of right now, video and audio attachments are served directly by the web server, rather than going through our PHP script. This is mostly for efficiency due to the way browsers make requests to these types of content. Thus, since the standard attachment viewing code is being bypassed, the view count won't be incremented. Overall, I think we'd consider that mostly as designed/expected for technical/efficiency reasons, with a likelihood that in the future, more attachment types (such as images) will be served in a similar way.
    I've removed the view count from templates so it's less confusing ;)
