Adoption uses the timezone that is set in the WordPres admin panel. Ensure you have set your local timezone in Settings > General.


  • Displays a bar chart with registration statistics for predetermined time periods (e.g. this week, last week, last 3 months, last 12 months, etc.)
  • Displays a “Quick Statistics” section which includes a summary of user registrations for popular time periods.
  • Easy to use, tidy and fits in with the overall WordPress user interface.


  • The Adoption dashboard widget showing statistics for the last 6 months, April is highlighted.


  1. Upload entire adoption folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the Adoption plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Who has access to view the Adoption dashboard widget?

Only administrations by default. Additional roles can be configured to gain access by using Justin Tadlocks “Members” plugin, you can grab it here.

The month views seem a little off, when I select any given month view I’m given an extra month, why is that?

This is a design decision. If you select “Last 3 Months” you’re given stats for this month and the previous 3 month (4 in total).

If you’d like to strictly get the last X months for any given time period you can use this code:

function your_project_minus_one_month(){      return 1;  }  add_filter( 'adoption_minus_one_month', 'your_project_minus_one_month' );
