Must Have
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have been using WP SlimStat for over a year now and I 100% recommend this plugin as a must-have for any wordpress site.

Great Stuff!
By , for WP 3.9.1

We installed a paid theme that didn't support the normal Jetpack site stats so were looking for a decent alternative.
I've got to say that this plugin delivers far more, really impressive and insightful stats they give a better more comprehensive idea of your visitors.
We are currently using it on our news site and highly recommend over the standard Jetpack that everyone seems to steer towards.

This is a great plugin especially for free. I asked some questions and the responses were timely and very helpful. I highly recommend this plugin and donating to keep it working.

Better Than Expensive Paid Stat Plugins!!!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Having used a number of free and paid stats plugins over the years, I was thrilled to find SlimStat. Why?

In short, SlimStat provides all the data of the expensive ($20/mo+++) paid plugins at NO COST. Wow. I mean, it's more data that most people will ever need. But if you're a data wonk, you'll get your fill here.

There are some other free stat plugins out there (including the bandwidth consuming Jetpack), but none that I know of come close to SlimStat's capabilities. This is a professional level plugin that the developers could easily charge for.

As a highly experienced WordPress webmaster, I most appreciate how well it's engineered. SlimStat does all that it does without bogging sites down, which so many of the others do.

I don't know how they do it (it's clearly a labor of love), but I can only say... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

NOTE: There's a plugin for the plugin, called WP SlimStat Dashboard Widgets, that puts SlimStat on the dashboard, just like Jetpack. I've found that my clients who were used to Jetpack really like this.

This plugin is simple and does the job well without impacting performance in any way. Also very swift and helpful response from the developer to support question. Highly recommended.

Great plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Great plugin, been using it for few weeks. Works very well.
In terms of improvement, I wish I could set the time zone when someone is viewing my site to either server location or my time zone. Right now it is off the charts, server is in US, I'm in Canada, most of my visitors are from US and time stamp is like +4 hours which is odd. Also I'd like to be able to set up my own dashboard so I don't have to jump back and forth from one place to another. Other than that great plugin. Thanks.
