Any way to hide [Views: 0]?

Hi, When you have a story that has no \"Body text\", i.e. only an \"Intro text\", the story can never have more than zero views (an admin can bypass that, as has happened on my site). And the line underneath the story says, \" Post a comment  [ Views: 0 ]\". Is there any way to remove the \"[Views: 0]\" text when there is no body text? I have looked in lib-common.php, but the lang_views variable is always output to the $article array via set_var before you get to the part that adds the intro text. Thanks guys, Chris http://www.keeponfighting.net

Remove them from the template files (storytext.thtml and featuredstorytext.thtml). bye, Dirk

Hi Dirk, I could do that, but I only want to remove them IF there is no body text for that story, as it is silly to show [Views: 0] because it can never change. If I remove them from those two files you mentioned, then they will never show regardless of whether a story has had zero or more views. -- Thanks, Chris http://www.keeponfighting.net

Correction, I meant, to hide the view total when there is no bodytext AND no comments. The story hits won\'t increase unless someone comments on a story without a bodytext. Sorry for the confusion. Chris.

Rawdata, that worked beautifully! Thank you. I was wondering if I could set my own variables (as you did with left_bracket etc.), but wasn\'t sure. Perhaps this hack could go into the core code? Dirk?
