I was wondering about the changes been made into the Forem codebase to display total postviews on the DEV dashboard page. I saw some changes in the behavior of update of postviews and tried to find out about and saw that a PR was merged to update the pageviews. I was just able to understand that some changes were made into the codebase but not able to understand what actually has happened there.
I would like to know in simpler terms what are the changes been made and how will they affect the performance of the site? Also, what is the new frequency of update of post/pageviews?
Is this change updated in all communities powered by Forem or just for DEV?
Also for a beginner how can we think about making such changes(related to caching) in a project and how to assess that our project needs some changes?
