    Hi,
    I just upgrade to wordpress 2.5 - my theme is K2 RC3- and also install the WordPress stats plugin. I'm getting stats, but with a little problem: all the views and hits go to the same post (with pages it appears to works without problems).

    I search about that and find out some bugs relationated with that, but appears to happend in old versions of WordPress and the plugin.

    Does anybody know something about that?

    Thanks :)

    I'm having a similar problem. I installed the WordPress.com Stats 1.2 plugin on my site (WP 2.5) recently and it is working great with one big exception. One page in particular is getting a crazy amount of hits. Where Google Analytics says the page has 80 hits on April 2, WordPress Stats says it got 1665 hits. This isn't just a one day thing, it's happened every day since installing the plugin. The hit count for the entire blog is similar to what Google Analytics says, so far it appears just this page is way off (at least it's the most obvious error). Help!

    What are the links to the problem pages on your site? The only way to debug what's going on is to look at the output and to see what we can see.

    I'm also having a problem with the stat plugin. I don't get many hits on my blogs. They're mostly for family and friends. So I wasn't real surprised when the stats plugin said I had 0 visitors. However, I have a new comment from 4/2/08 and it still says I've had no visitors. I know it's only 1, but shouldn't it show up?

    I am also experiencing strange things with WordPress.com Stats after upgrading to WordPress 2.5. One article is getting "all" the views and suddenly very few articles get views. But referer-links tell me that I have views on more articles than WordPress.com Stats indicates.

    I reiterate, telling us about a problem with stats without actually giving us the links to your websites is pointless. We cannot answer your questions without seeing the code it's producing.

    The WordPress.com stats plugin produces output that makes visitors browsers pull from a site on wordpress.com. Part of that javascript that it produces passes along the post number. Without seeing that script and seeing what's going on, we cannot help you.

    I use the wordpress.com stats plugin version 1.2 on my sites. It works fine with 2.5.

    My site. I just turn the plugin on again.

    Thank you very much :)

    Edit: i notice that the plugin puts the hits on the last entry from the first page of posts

    No one else noticed anything strange with WordPress.com Stats after upgrading to WordPress 2.5?

    It appears to be a problem with the recent posts widget. If you remove that, the problem should go away.

    I'll investigate further and see about a fix.

    You're right! Just turn off the recents post block and works :)
    I appreciate much your help

    Hi,
    I have upgraded to WordPress 2.5 and installed the WordPress stat plugin.
    But I can't see the stat page, each time he ask for "username" and "password". So I type the same as the admin access. It should work but I got "ERROR: Incorrect password."
    What can I do...?
    Thanks :-)

    The WordPress.com Stats username/password is the username/password for your account on WordPress.com. That's where you got your API key for Akismet and WordPress.Stats.

    So I type the same as the admin access

    Normally access to your wordpress blog (downloaded from WordPress.org) should not be the same as your login/password for WordPress.com.

    After logging in at http://www.yourwebsite/wp-admin, scroll down to your stats, try to login there. If you can't, click on the lost password. Enter your email and WordPress.com will mail you your password.

    Are you talking about stats not working?

    You don't seem to have <?php wp_footer(); ?> in either blog just before </body> in your footer.php.

    I still can't see the WordPress stat.
    I have tried with the default theme: still asking for username/password and replying "ERROR: Incorrect password." When asking for new password, it does not recognise the email I give.
    I have put the code line <?php wp_footer(); ?> into my theme: same result.

    This is the WordPress.com password and username. You got that when you received your API key. You have to use the email you used when you got the key. If you do not have a key, stats will not work.

    I am having this same weirdness. I have recent posts, comments, top comments on my sidebar so I assume it's the same problem as mentioned above. I'll just stick with the google analytics data for now. Just wanted to point out that I was experiencing weirdness as well on http://www.dewknight.com

    for some reason my stats (http://crumaharashop.com) start counting for the next day at 7pm its kind of annoying. The time on my blog is set correctly and the posts show the correct time when I post them. Any ideas?

    Stats only sees three pages on my blog, with the overwhelming majoring of hits all being listed as just one page. My blog is http://itsvista.com

    Most hits are listed as: http://itsvista.com/2007/01/itsvista-tip-16-using-vista-to-zip-and-unzip-files-and-folders/

    These two pages get stats that look normal:
    http://itsvista.com/google-search/
    http://itsvista.com/windows-vista-keyboard-shortcuts/
    No other pages show up in Stats.

    I was using the Recent Posts plugin, I've disabled it and it's library plugin, but I'm still having the same Stats problem.

    codethought You don't seem to have <?php wp_footer(); ?> before </body> in your footer.php on the pages I checked.

    jpfieber Try moving the code below feedburner. Also turn feedburner off and see if that helps.

    @kmessinger Thanks for the response. I poked around, and I tracked down the problem. It's the wp-PostViews plugin. I'm checking with the author for a fix, but I wonder if your plugin could have a better way of harvesting the page info to avoid issues like this. Google Analytics and Feedburner are collecting the correct info, only the WordPress stats are incorrect. Here's my message to the wp-PostViews author:

    I just tracked down my WordPress Stats problem to your plugin. Almost all of my pageviews are being counted under one page on WordPress Stats (making it useless). I've found that 'the_permalink()' before 'get_most_viewed()' shows the permalink of the current page, but after 'get_most_viewed()' shows the permalink of the last listed popular page, breaking any call to 'the_permalink' that follows your plugin. Any resolution to this?

    kmessinger-

    I've added <?php wp_footer(); ?> to the footer.php file. Hopefully we'll see some stats soon... thanks!!

    The author has a fix for wp-postview, my stats are now collecting properly. See http://forums.lesterchan.net/index.php/topic,1583.msg15666.html#msg15666
