PLEASE BRING BACK WP-STATS. It is simple to use and easy to read. It seems as if we are being herded to use Jetpack, which many of us do not want.
Like so many others who have self-supported websites, I noticed errors with WP-Stats last week. After reading comments on this forum I installed Jetpack and gave it a try. Over the weekend Jetpack stopped showing hits. I got the graph, but there were no hits despite the fact that I know people were visiting my site (tamiasoutside.com). I decided to remove Jetpack altogether after deactivating and reactivating to see if this jolted it back to life.
I'm VERY reluctant to use Jetpack in future. For one thing, it requires that I log onto WordPress.COM. For another, I can't seem to log out of the WordPress.com account. I do not want to remain logged in to my WordPress.com account. Also, this two-step checking of stats is a perishing nuisance -- first log into my site's Dashboard, then into the WP.COM account. And I do not need, nor do I want, the other features Jetpack includes.
Is there a chance that WP-Stats will ever come back? In the meantime, I have no stats at my site.
