Causes horrific site load times
By , for WP 3.8

The concept is great, the execution, not so much.

This plugin made my author site crawl. I'm talking about 10 minutes or more initial load time. Even in a browser that had visited the site before. Mobile devices timed out trying to load it.

Once a page was loaded, it would be slightly faster to load a second time, but I was still looking at 5-7 minutes or so instead of seconds.

Slow load times bogged my server down so much, I was told I'd need to upgrade to the package just behind a dedicated server, at an extra 49.95 a month. A year of that would have been 3 months or more of income.

Luckily it turned out to be a bad plugin; much cheaper to fix: Deactivate, delete.

DO NOT USE.

Was awesome - now it's horrific
By , for WP 3.5.2

I had put this plugin on all the WP sites I do...thought it was awesome.

Have been using it for a very long time...

...but then a few days ago, ALL of my WP sites started taking *forever* to load. Eventually tracked the problem down to this plugin. It's a zombie. And if you enable it on your website, it will eat your brains.

DO. NOT. USE. IT.

Made my site crash
By ,

This plug in resulted in a major crash of my site, with a spike to my hosting company because of this plug in that shut everything down. It was hell tracking the source of my problem, but apparently it was this plug in. I wrote to the authors of this plug in asking for help and an explanation, but they chose to not even respond to my emails and ignored me completely. Not the way anyone should do business.
AVOID THIS PLUG IN!

Lots of errors in untested code
By , for WP 3.5.1

I found and fixed two SQL errors in the first few days of using tts (both trivial errors in apparently untested code).

It also seems to be resource intensive and occasionaly seemed to really slow down site loading (deactivating tts cured the problem, though I encountered yet another error when I deactivated).

Don't forget to dropthe large tables and (thankfully) single option manually when deactivating.

Better than Google analytics.

Great plugin, just one question
By , for WP 3.5.1

I use this plugin just about every day to see how much traffic is coming in. It's easy to use and lightweight (it doesn't slow down my site).

I do have one question, though. Why are the visit stats higher with Track That Stat than with Google Analytics?
