    Hey Camu,

    none of these questions is a real problem or urgent so I thought I'd put them all into one thread:

    Thanks for the new version and as I said, no rush with this thread, its more a Q&A thread than a problem report :-)

    Quick question for you before I address the other issues: are the charts working in your install?

    If you are talking about these charts, yes, they are working. => http://screencast.com/t/BBntQTtgo

    Okay great, thanks. Other users are saying the chart doesn't work for them and I wanted to understand why :)

    As for your questions,

    1) I'll add a new option under 'Maintenance' to allow admins to remove entries based on usernames. In the meanwhile you can do it directly in PHPMYAdmin.

    2) Someone was trying to do something malicious on your site

    3) I'll add an option for that, good thinking

    4) Yes

    5) Use the Maintenance > Purge functionality to get rid of them

    Thanks for clarifying! All good for now. Will re-open this thread if more 2.8.3 related questions pop into my mind.

    Oh, one more addition:

    After upgrading I visited:

    Settings => Slimstat => Filters and all the fields where I can enter something had "array" written in them so I deleted the word array in all text fields and saved. All is good now and if I enter "activate_plugins" into the field "Users by capability" and save it gets saved properly and all other text fields are still empty.

    That's the problem, then! Some users are experiencing difficulties accessing the config panel and it's because the field hasn't been updated properly! I'll have to take a look at that.

    Yes, or by manually downloading 2.8.3 again :)

    Oh, two more questions:

    • How come this URL is listed as one of my top landing pages: mydomain.tld/?ver=4.2.9&suffusion-css=css - that is a css file belonging to the active theme !? How could I suppress parts of the theme showing as landing pages? I'm sure nobody linked straight to that css file :-)
    • How come my recent bounce pages show the same URLs as my recent 404 errors? I don't think there is a point in showing a URL as a recent bounce page if it also gave a 404 error.

    1) put that in the filters or add a few lines to your htaccess to tell Apache to serve those files directly instead of let WordPress process them, you'll save a lot of server power!

    http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/24587/how-do-i-skip-wordpresss-404-handling-and-redirect-all-404-errors-for-static-fi

    2) good point, I hadn't thought about that, I'll remove 404 pages from that report.

    Thanks for 1) Camu.

    As to 2) I don't think removing the 404 pages is the best solution. I meant to say that if i.e. mypage is a bounce page, fine, show it in the bounce pages report, but if
    mypage?someweirdURL is a 404 error, no reason to show it in the bounce page report too, since nobody actually "bounced" off this page since it was a 404 error.
    Does that make sense?

    Yes, that's what I meant to say, I'll make so that 404 pages won't be listed under the 'bounce' pages report ;)
