I am using the 'Advanced Forum' module in Drupal 7 and I want to have a 'Views' column in the topic list. I have managed to do this using the Statistics module, but now at the bottom of every node it says '## reads', much to my dislike. Therefore, I would like to remove every visible view count; only leaving the views column in the 'Advanced Forum'.

Is this possible? If it is possible, how can I do it?


You can remove it through template_preprocess_node(). For instance:

function YOURTHEMENAME_preprocess_node(&$variables) {

Or you may be able to do this with simple CSS as well:

li.statistics_counter {
  display: none;

  • Thank you. The CSS didn't seem to change anything but the function worked perfectly! Sorry for my delayed response. – Andy Jul 29 '11 at 14:09

Also, the view count on nodes is permission based, so you can deny the view permission to everyone and then it will only show for UID 1.

  • Thanks for your answer. I think I tried that, but I'm new to Drupal 7 so I didn't really know what I was doing. Anyway, I have a solution now, and me and my mate are 'pausing' the project until futher notice as well! Thanks again, and sorry for my slow reply! – Andy Aug 3 '11 at 9:16
