WP SlimStat

    Just updated SlimStat and it has stopped working.
    I updated - It says version 2.5.2. I have WordPress 3.2.1

    I have deactivated, then activated both Slimstat and the Dashboard Widgets.

    Any ideas?

    Same here. Only thing that sort of worked was deleting all of my data. Still way off though. Had a post hit 300 views according to WP Popular posts and Slimstat has recorded 25 visits in the same timespan. Also raw data/spy view is missing andy data.

    Mine didn't seem to delete any data.

    I see mine is reading the RAW data from today but it isn't being recorded anywhere else including the Spy View.

    No...I deleted the data after seeing no activity and because there was a problem with the plugin a while back that recorded way too many visitors (over counting). Figured I would just reset the thing and see if it worked

    You used Factory Reset to do that?

    Yup...probably a bit of an effort in frustration

    I think I'm going to try uninstalling it and reinstalling the previous version and see what happens.

    Hey guys,

    not sure why the new version stopped recording pageviews, the engine hasn't changed much since 2.5.1, and so hasn't the database structure. It would be helpful if I could take a look at one of your blogs (URL?) and maybe the admin interface, to troubleshoot the issue. You can contact me at

    http://www.duechiacchiere.it/contatto

    to discuss about it, if you like. I'll be back on Monday, though, so please be patient.

    Sent you an email Camu
    I'll leave the plugin active for now though pageviews are going crazy again

    Hello.

    I updated to the last version of slimstat like half an hour ago and since then I haven't been able to reach my site. I get the same error as I get when I try to enter your site:
    http://www.duechiacchiere.it/

    Error is(similar to me):
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF, expecting T_FUNCTION in /home/mhd-01/www.duechiacchiere.it/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/wp-slimstat/wp-slimstat.php on line 436

    What should I do?

    I have the same problem, Fripper. I'm freaking out with the same problem.

    This is the error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF, expecting T_FUNCTION in /homepages/5/d152748266/htdocs/petimagery.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-slimstat/wp-slimstat.php on line 436

    I cannot access my dashboard either to fix the problem and I don't know what to do. Please help. My website is http://www.petimagery.com

    Fripper and Lkap1481.

    I did the update that was available this morning with no issues at all.

    I do, however get the error message you note when I try to go to Camu's website or to Lkap1481's.

    Are you both running the latest Worpress? Mine is 3.2.1.

    Yes I'm running 3.2.1 I think. I haven't seen any update of wordpress so far so I believe it's the latest version. But now I can't go in and check in my dashbord so..

    I had the same issue a short while ago. I removed the plugin via FTP and I was able to get to the dashboard, etc. Of course, not certain what this has done to historical data, however, not my primary concern at this point.

    Okay so I ended up going into my ftp server and manually deleting the slimstat plugin. I'm annoyed I had to do this because I just hit 50k views but now I think it might start all over but now I'm afraid to download the plugin for fear it will happen again.

    I can get into my dash now and site works because I got rid of slimstat for now

    A previous time when I couldn't access my blog due to a different set of circumstances I was told to look in the wordpress root for a .maintenance file and delete it. I use FileZilla for FTP transfers.

    As it turned out, I didn't have to do that as the problem seemed to fix itself, however, you might want to try it. I'd download the file to my hard drive first so I could replace it again if it doesn't help,

    I'll write this on my blackboard tonight as a punishment: "I will never release a new version just before attending a 2-hours meeting" :) It was a typo in the source code, I've already fixed it. It will be posted to the repository in a few minutes (let's say 30 minutes).

    In order to fix the problem:
    - access your FTP account
    - go to wp-content/plugins/wp-slimstat
    - delete wp-slimstat.php

    Then install it again, your data won't be removed, don't worry.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Ok, now first I have to learn how to use FTP, set up a FTP account etc.

    It's always something to learn :D

    I think that I've connected to the right domain now so, how do I find "wp-content"?

    Where should I look?

    @Fripper, re "how do I find "wp-content"?"...

    - look in the directory where your WP blog/site is installed (usually
    the main directory in Cpanel or possibly in the /blog directory if
    you installed WP there)
    - you'll see a folder titled wp-content
    - inside that is a folder titled plugins
    - inside that will be the wp-slimstat folder with all the plugin's files

    Camu, what do you mean by "the repository?"

    Also, FYI, on the download page at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-slimstat/download/ the link to 2.5.3 gives a 404 error message.

    @Lkap1481, your data will not be removed, you can now manually install WP SlimStat again from Plugins > Add New :) I promise I'll be careful from now on eheh

    @yukoner, the official WordPress Plugins Repository. Not sure why that link is broken, I'll look into it.
