I've had my blog up and running for a while now and one thing I can *never* get to work is visitor/usage stats. I just tried again with WP-Dashboard-Stats, which told me that I needed to install wordpress.com stats (which makes no sense). Then it asked for API codes (huh?) and long story short, I removed both.
I've tried Statsurfer, only got code errors on the top of my blog. I've tried a couple of other plugins and they insist that I have no viewers even after months pass. True, I don't get many, but I know there are some.
All I want is stats accessible from the Dashboard, just like the Akismet stats, only for viewers not spam.
What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this once and for all?
Any help for what I know is a stupid question is very much appreciated.
