    I migrated my blog to my website last week. Until today, each time I've logged in I've been able to view my traffic stats--numbers of visitors each day. I'm pretty certain I viewed it on my dashboard. Now I can't see that informationa AND I can't find it either. Can anyone tell me where this information/window went to or wher I can find it? THANKS!

    What changed on your blog yesterday or today? Did you upgrade anything, add or deactivate any plugins, or change your theme?

    not that I'm aware of. I added a new post. Where should the stats appear at? In the dashboard, right?

    The dashboard has its own menu. Stats adds itself to this menu. You can also get there by /wp-admin/index.php?page=stats.

    Andy, thanks so much for your help here. I wish I could post a screen campture because I cannot see the dashboard menu. I recall seeing it before.
    I CAN click on the dashboard button but i don't get a drop down menu.

    I pasted the information you provided above onto the backend of my URL and i get a blank page with this message: "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    So I went to plugins page and installed and activated WordPress.com Stats by Andy Skelton (is this you?) and then got this message "WordPress.com Stats needs attention: please enter an API key or disable the plugin." Unfortunatley I don't know what an API key is or where to put it! :)

    Andy, I think I may have resolved it (not patting myself on the back yet, though). I discoverd through the forum that the API key was emailed to me (I coulnd't find in on my profile as I originally read). I found the email and figured out where to put the API key and voila--the stats screen is now visible. No stats yet, but I'm closer! Thanks! I'll repost shortly when it's all resolved and change the status of this thread.
