How to remove the "topics _per week_" count?

I have an active but low traffic forum. How can I remove the “topics per week” counter? Seeing “1 topic per week” or so in a category makes the forum look a bit deserted.

Ideally I would just have a “Topics” counter without any time limitation, just the plain number of topics per category. Is there a switch for this?

To clarify: I am talking about the counter on the category page, which I use as default homepage (this page: Categories - Discourse Meta )


The category page should be using an absolute count for categories with low velocity, already.

Yes, verified on one of my own instances:

Even here on meta there is a mixture, see categories here and look at plugins for example. Working as designed.

Thanks for the reply. That sounds good, it would be exactly what we need. Alas, it does not work for me. Here is a link to the forum:

Any idea on what could be the issue? (The forum is currently hosted on discoursehosting, and not customized in any way by us).
