WP-ShortStat Release (54 posts)

    I've taken Shaun Inman's excellent stat package, ShortStat and ported it into a supremely easy to install and use WordPress plugin.

    The plugin requires nothing more than uploading it to your server and activating it. Once done, you can access your stats via "Dashboard -> ShortStat".

    WP-ShortStat included all the features of ShortStat (including IP > Country resolution without a 2meg file) with none of the installation hassle.

    Links!

  2. Nice work! I've added it to the Codex list.

    Does it include Monthly Stats.... becoz fomr the look of it it is like a from beginning to now............

    Although i love the idea of it avalible from Dash Board. Is there any other similar stats script that uses the dash board idea?

    This is way cool - I was looking at this script last night on Inmans sites as so many people in the know rave about it.

    Very nice having it in the dashboard.

    There have been some very cool plug-ins recently. Thanks :)

    macmanx: ooh, thanks! Forgot about adding it there.

    Ksec: I'm not familiar enough to say what the other stats plugins do, or how they operate. I just made this one. :/

    As for monthly stats, no it does not. From reading the ShortStat code it looks like most of the stats are just aggregate functions -- meaning they have no timelimit. It just includes everything since it began tracking. Of course, the week list goes back one week from today -- which is probably the only time sensitive element.

    For tracking monthly stats I would recommend something more thurough, like AWStats which will analyze your Apache logs. It's a far more detailed and overall analysis, since WP-ShortStat only tracks users and hits that occur in WordPress code. Oh, and it does monthlies. ;)

    Josepo: If I end up adding a page for options, I'll put that one in there. But, I wonder, why do you not want to know what registered members are looking at?

    Josepo: Hrm, it seems that the admin section detection was faulty for a few people. I've updated the plugin to v1.2 which should alleviate the problem. Let me know if that works...

    That is so clever! i have always wonder how to exclude myself from the stats.

    But Shortstats is not comprehensive enough. while other are without this features..........><

    Ksec: You are absolutely right ShortStat is not comprehensive -- hence the "Short" ;)

    Also, if by "exclude yourself" you mean that your wp-admin/ pages are showing up, just redownload the plugin (v1.2). I fixed that problem.

    I may be as thick as two short planks but all I am getting at the codex is an internal error...

    I really would like to have this plugin... is there another site from which to acquire it?

    Kyte: Do you mean the Codex or the Plugin Repository Site. I get an error from the Plugin Repository Site, but nothing from the:

    http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/wp-shortstat
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins
    http://jrm.cc/archives/blog/wp-shortstat/

    These are other options for finding the plugin.

    chuyskywalker: the link to the Trac site is having errors, so could you please update your plugin in the repository so we'd have a second good location for the new verson. Thanks.

    Hmmm for some reason this don't work for me. I have had it running a couple of days now and all fields are still zero.

    I checked AW Stats and I have had over 300 visits.

    update: I have isolated it to the events plug-in http://blog.firetree.net/2005/05/27/eventcalandar23/ for some reason this stops this plugin counting. Don't know why though.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    The download site is down. It'll be back up soon I hope (I don't have control over it though, so...)

    Hello, I'm trying to localize this plugin. Is there any way to localize the countries (which are taken from http://www.hostip.info)?
    Thank you

    Check with the plugin author for this information.

    I've had this installed for a few days and was really enjoying it...until I realised what it's doing to my nice small SQL database. It's added 45000 lines of code which has increased the file from under 2meg to 14.5 meg!

    So, I've disabled and deleted the plugin but I'm still eft with the huge database!

    Anyone think of what I can do to get the ShartStat entries to go away?

    Cheers

    Sorry reevo but that sounds very distrubing. Can you provide some info on how to check up on it?

    Just download the database and open it in any text viewer and you'll see a ton of exta code!

  30. Anyone think of what I can do to get the ShartStat entries to go away?

    Dump the database or clear the tables.
