    Just noticed that on July 10th we have to say goodbye to Analyticator (see http://ronaldheft.com/) because of renewing API Google. What a pity! What is the alternative to have the number of visits according google analytics on the frontpage of your wordpress webslte?

    Serious bummer. I would totally pay for a premium version of this plugin too.

    Hmm does this affect "Google Analytics for WordPress" ? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/

    I'm just getting started with these, but it seems like a very similar plugin, no?

    And it's dead with the last update. It still reports data back to Google but the dashboard widget shows a flat line with no info.

    Any suggestions on a viable replacement?

    Yes.. same here. Yesterday the Analyticator Widgets still showing Visitors numbers but today it just shown "0". Not working anymore! Hope alternative will appear soon!

    I thought it was broken too, but then I followed the steps at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-authenticate-google-analytics-from-analytics360-plugin-page?replies=19 and it's working for me now.

    We have just released a new version which works with the new Google API.

    This should solve the issues that were happening.

    Didn't know there was an issue but happened to be in my admin panel just now and saw that Analyticator wanted to do an update, so I let it upgrade automatically to 6.3.1.

    After that, went to Settings and saw "You need to sign in to Google and grant this plugin access to your Google Analytics account - Click HERE". I clicked, a new Window popped up asking me to log in to Google. I logged in, clicked the blue Allow button, and received back (in the same popup window), "Please copy this code, switch to your application and paste it there:" and a long code. But when I refresh the Analyticator Settings page, just keeps telling me that I must grant it access and "Click HERE". Where do I put the code that Google gave me?

    BTW I'm using WordPress 2.9.2 and Firefox 15.0.1 under Windows 7.

    I just updated to 6.3.1, and I get a blank white screen after clicking the Click HERE link, too. I uninstalled the plugin, reinstalled fresh, but it's still broken. Can't authenticate. It looks like 6.3.1 did not fix the issue.

    @mcbsys - same here using FF on OSX
    Switched to Chrome and it worked so there's a little weirdness in browsers there somewhere

    Thanks for the tip, Rastarr. I just successfully authenticated using Chrome on OS X too. In case it helps the devs, here's the error message that fills the Dashboard widget window in Firefox (current version, OS X):

    Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Google_AuthException' with message 'Error fetching OAuth2 access token, message: 'invalid_grant'' in /home/website/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/google-api-php-client/src/auth/Google_OAuth2.php:113 Stack trace: #0 /home/website/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/google-api-php-client/src/Google_Client.php(131): Google_OAuth2->authenticate(Array, '...') #1 /home/website/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/class.analytics.stats.php(68): Google_Client->authenticate('...') #2 /home/website/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/google-analytics-summary-widget.php(188): GoogleAnalyticsStats->checkLogin() #3 /home/website/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/google-analytics-summary-widget.php(104): GoogleAnalyticsSummary->getAnalyticsAccount() #4 [internal function]: GoogleAnalyticsSummary->ajaxWidget('') #5 /home/website/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php(403): call_user_func_array in /home/website/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/google-api-php-client/src/auth/Google_OAuth2.php on line 113

    Fails under IE8 as well. After I log in to Google and Allow the plugin, and after I allow popups in IE8, it seems that it tries open a new tab, but then it tells me it cannot display the webpage. The URL shows "javascript:jQuery('".

    @mcbsys we have not tested this plugin on WP version 2.9.2 and I don't think we will to be honest. I would suggest upgrading your WP to the latest version.

    Thanks for the feedback regarding the errors and browsers @Chad Bush and @Rastarr, we are investigating.

    Cheers,
    Troy.

    I'm on the latest version of WordPress and am also not getting the field to paste in the validation code that you show in your demo video.

    Great.

    I am marking this as resolved, as I hope you all agree it is not the end of the Google Analyticator.

    Google Analyticator has found a new, good, house :)

    The good news is that Analyticator 6.3.2 works fine under WordPress 2.9.2. (And yes, I'll update someday, but that's a big project.)

    The bad news is that it is now difficult to install.

    I have two sites on the same domain, www and techblog.

    Yesterday I upgraded techblog to 6.3.1, which only required WP 2.7.

    Today I could not automatically update techblog to 6.3.2, which requires WP 3.2. However after a local decompress and manual FTP upload, Analyticator 6.3.2 works fine: I had a field for pasting the tracking token, I see the dashboard, and the tracking code is inserted in my pages.

    However on the www site, whether I uninstall and upload, or FTP upload, the Settings link keeps dropping the "www" from the path, so it cannot load the Settings page. If I manually re-add the "www", I can get to one page, but then the next redirect fails. I downgraded this site to 6.2 and the Settings work again.

    My other feedback is that the plugin should not rely on authentication. IMHO the main purpose and benefit of Analyticator is inserting the tracking tags, including for file downloads. The dashboard widget is a "nice-to-have" that I never use. After upgrading, it was rather disconcerting to lose access to all the insertion options just because the widget can't authenticate--I wondered if my site was still being tracked. I would suggest making authentication optional again as it was up to 6.2.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    mcbsys - if you just want the tracking tags ALl in One SEO now has a line for that and there are other ways you can add the JS ID ( tracking tags) to your theme.

    The main benefit of this plugin ( when it is back working again) is the dashboard widget showing the 30 days rolling GA. Most users like that and most of them won't login directly to GA as that is too complex for them.

    Jason - I don't see GA in All in One SEO. Probably that's in a version released for WP 3.0+. Analyticator 6.2 gives me what I need.

    Hi mcbsys

    Unfortunately we don't have the resources to test the plugin all the way back to 2.9.x especially as we didn't build the base - we can't support it. This is why we moved the "Supports" tag up to 3.x

    As for the core functionality, we did discuss this - as as Jason mentioned, there are a number of great plugins that already help you to add the tracking code to the footer of your website.

    This is why we put more of a focus on the activation side of things.

    Thanks,

    Ben
