Statistics

    Better statistical data and views of hits, usage, comments, etc. Something similar to bsuite but with richer reports. For example, being able to determine which user hit which post would help form a demographic profile which would better enable bloggers to understand who is reading what material and allow them to respond accordingly.

    There are some excellent plugins for statistics, such as FireStats.

  5. -1 to this. I don't want integrated stats for either of my WP powered sites. I use Google Analytics and don't want extra queries.

    Plugins aren't hard to install and as said, it'd be too hard to satisfy everyone, so I think it's best left to people picking a plugin that meets their needs.

    I think this should be included. People get help setting up their install of wordpress and then never touch it again, we can't expect them to know how to enable Analytics on their site. The statistic feature does not need to be fancy, a simple graph like on WP.com blogs would work fine.

    -1. Everybody wants different things from their stat program and there are already a large number of stats programs out there.

    Plus Automattic has stated that they're going to release the wp.com stat sometime in the future.

    I just wish all these plugins wouldn't use the same name. :(

    I believe that the lack of built-in useable statistics is WordPress' biggest weakness.

    Every WordPress author needs to have complete, accurate, and timely access to their blog statistics. Many of the add-on stats plugins make modifications to the DB, and this puts the entire installation at risk.

    I have personally had a fairly well-know stats package fail, leaving my site crippled until I was able to repair the damage and bring things back online (without the stats plugin).

    We need the developers to think through all of the different statistics that people will want and at least build the data collection function into the core of the software. Then you can allow plugin authors to simply slice and dice the data that is already being gathered.

    Thanks,

    John

    Not in the Core please! I think, that everyone who needs statistics can get one of the hundreds statistic plugins. or use an external service. but statistics also means, lot more data, bigger databases etc. i dont need that, and i want a clean and small wp installations!

    -1 for core.

    "I have personally had a fairly well-know stats package fail, leaving my site crippled until I was able to repair the damage and bring things back online (without the stats plugin)."

    John, what kind of damage did your site sustain from your failing stats plugins? I'm not sure how any stats plugin can cripple your site to the extent that you need to "repair the damage" even after de-activating it.

    "Every WordPress author needs to have complete, accurate, and timely access to their blog statistics."

    My view is that people who install WordPress themselves will easily be able to install a stats plugin if they need stats. If they got help installing WP in the first place, then they can get help again installing a plugin. I don't mean to demean WP users but if they previously FTPd WordPress to their server then it's not rocket science to FTP a plugin into the right directory.
