    Since yesterday my wordpress site has lost its way in dates only for WordPress.com Stats. Its showing stats for the previous day and did not move forward to a new date. The blog date looks fine.
    I tried deactivating and re-activating the WordPress.com stats plugin but it did not make a difference.
    Can someone help ?
    I am running version 3.1 of wordpress using a 2010 weaver theme and version 1.8.1 of WordPress.com stats

    im confirming the same issue

    im on wp 3.0.5

    everything worked fine till yesterday,

    it seems wp stats is using the UTC time instead of the actual time of my country to show the stats date.

    Guys,

    Check your stats now. Seems they saw the problem patched it, but not fixed properly.
    We lost one day's worth of stats because of this issue.

    Its probably working for you now too, since its working for me. Can you please confirm

    My stats are on UTC time. That means I am getting stats for tomorrow, (3/17) right now.

    Nothing changed. Same problem, still two hours ahead of my time zone.

    That's true: WP-Stats assumed UTC time zone. Almost 2:00AM now.

    Does anyone know if there's a fix for this UTC/wrong date bug? Thank you!

    Having the same issue. Stats are displaying with UTC time, not EDT (UTC-4).

    For weeks my stats have been turning a new day at 23:00 each day. I'm on US Eastern Time, and since we moved the clocks forward to Daylight Savings Time this past Saturday my stats have been turning a new day at 22:00, or 2 hours ahead of time.

    My time and timezone are correctly set in the WordPress dashboard.

    Just wanted to add that we too are having a tough go with the stats. I will give as much detail as I can to help trouble shoot the issue. Approximately one month ago we were having an issue with stats ending at 11:00 PM Eastern. I verified the wordpress setting for clock was set to New York. I also went in and made sure the server clock and php settings had the correct time settings. I believe the server clock was off by one hour. We corrected this and the stats began working correctly.

    When the Daylight Savings Time Shift occurred the stat's day end shifted to 1:00 AM. I double checked clock settings in wordpress, php server as well as the site server. All were correctly showing the propper time. I went in to wordpress and updated my timezone setting from New York to Nassau, saved and then switched right back to New York and resaved. This corrected the issue.

    Then four days ago, the stat's day end switched to UTC. By updating the wordpress timezone settings, I was able to get accurate (or at least I think is accurate) stats for that day.

    Then we were unable to access stats while it was being worked on. The unavailable issue was resolved and then stats became erratic, sometimes ending on UTC and sometimes per wordpress timezone settings. When the number is off, I change and then reset wordpress timezone settings and it appears to correct the pageviews. I record the page views everynight so I can tell when it looks right based upon past history.

    Currently the graph appears to be reading correctly, but the daily pageview display at the bottom left of the page is showing stats (most likely) from UTC timezone.

    Feel free to contact me if I can help.

    I am having similar problems. The stats page shows the following: "Generated 2011-03-19 03:23:02 UTC+3 "
    For the record, I am located in UTC-4 (EDT). The server is PDT (UTC-7).

    It appears that the clock that WP stats is using is UTC +3. Any ideas?
    Updated to WP 3.1 a few days ago.

    Ever since the date thing got weird, the stats aren't adding up. The page with the graph on it shows completely different numbers than the page for each individual date.

    Hopefully, they're still working out the kinks!

    My stats are resetting at 6:00PM EST as of Thursday this past week.

    The time was set for Toronto. I changed it to UTC-5, but that didn't fix the problem and they again reset at 6:00PM EST today.

    The blog is registering the correct UTC and local time so I don't know what is the problem. I'm on WP 3.01.

    Also, the graphs and the stats are out of synch. i.e. the stats have reset for the day, but the graph above has not. Very ODD!

    I also have Clicky stats running on the blog and they seem to be reading the time fine and are not resetting incorrectly

    Has WP identified the issue and indicated what the problem is?

    My stats problem is exactly as stated above by w4ft. I am in -4 UTC but stats page is recording a +3 UTC time zone. Graph and page viewing not in sync.

    So has WP addressed this issue at all? I haven't seen any explicit communication on it, and the stats are still incorrect.

    Having a forum is great, but if there is no response from WP, what can we do?

    I'm seeing the same problem. My blog is UTC but stats are being generated based on UTC+3. The graph and the summary table are out of sync. The "Top Posts & Pages" for the day are totalling to the same as the summary table.

    Also, the entries for "Top Posts" and "Most Active" on the dashboard are blank, but "Top Searches" is populated.

    I'm running WordPress 3.1 and WordPress.com Stats 1.8.1

    At some point during the day today, graphs and summary tables started being in synch again on both of my blogs, both for today's dates and earlier dates. I didn't change anything on my end.

    I now have the correct UTC-4 time zone but the graph, referrer, and clicks are zero all day. Something seems to be wrong still.

    I am having a similar problem. My stats keep going back to yesterday. Then 12 or so hours ago then current then back to yesterday. It was confusing me until I read this post

    Same problem for me too - I'm getting stats for tomorrow before tomorrow has come. Maybe this is a time traveling issue ;)

    I was given this solution by WP support:

    The time zone issue can be reset by doing the following.

    1. Go to Settings > General in your blog's Dashboard.
    2. Set the time zone to another location and click "Save Settings"
    3. Set the time zone back to your current location and click "Save Settings"

    After that you may need to deactivate and reinstall the plugin once more but you should be all set.

    Stats have been working fine for me since I did that.

    @consciouscat - worked probably by coincidence. A lot of us did just that but didn't work at the time. I believe WP fixed the problem globally yesterday but unfortunately the dashboard is down again for a different reason.

    Ah, the old coincidence fix.

    And yes, for the last hour or so, stats have been down again.

  30. We're experiencing some issues throughout the stats system right now and are currently working to correct them.
