Feed Stats for WordPress (reworked for PHP 5.3)


Feed Stats for WordPress (reworked for PHP 5.3) is a plugin, based on Feed Stats for WordPress that allows you to view your
FeedBurner feed stats from inside of the WordPress admin interface. Stats for your feed can be viewed from the “Feed Stats” page in the “Dashboard” section of WordPress.

The original plugin seems not longer developed, so I decide to rework it and make it work with PHP 5.3+

Currently, this plugin allows you to view the following types of statistics:

  • Subscribers
  • Hits
  • Reach (see the FAQ section for more information about this)
  • Item Clickthroughs
  • Item Views

Note: This is a third-party plugin for viewing data from the FeedBurner web service. I am not in any way affiliated with Google.

Installing this plugin into your copy of WordPress and configuring it is a three-step process:

  1. Download the plugin and extract the feed-stats-plugin-for-wordpress-reworked folder into a temporary location. Copy this folder into your wp-content folder in your installation of WordPress.
  2. In the “Plugins” page of the “Plugins” section of the admin interface, click on the “Activate” button next to this plugin’s name.
  3. Under the “Feed Stats” page of the “Settings” section of the admin interface, type in the full URL of your feed on FeedBurner. Click the “Save Settings” button.

You’re done! You can now see the stats of your feed in the “Feed Stats” page of the “Dashboard” section of WordPress admin interface.


What are “Reach” stats?

According to FeedBurner, “Reach” stats describe how many of your subscribers actively click on and view items in your feed. For more information on this, you can view the “What is Reach?” article in the FeedBurner Help Center.

What’s the “Awareness API”?

The Awareness API is the system that FeedBurner created to allow applications (like this plugin) to access your statistics. You will have to manually enable it in the admin panel of your FeedBurner account in order to use this plugin (it’s turned off by default). More information about enabling it is below.

How do I enable the Awareness API?

To enable the Awareness API, login to your FeedBurner account, click on “My Feeds” and select the feed you want to enable the API for from the list. Click on the “Publicize” tab and then click on the “Awareness API” link under the services column. Finally, click on the “Activate” button.

How often is information retrieved from FeedBurner?

The data about your feeds is loaded from FeedBurner only when you open the “Feed Stats” page. This plugin does not continuously poll FeedBurner.

How are the charts displayed?

The charts are displayed using the Google Charts API. Additional chart making software or graphics software (like GD) doesn’t have to be installed on your server to run this plugin.

How many days of stats does the plugin display?

By default, 10 days of hits, subscribers, and reach stats are shown. I’ve found that 10 days of stats displays well in the charts in the dashboard. If you wish to change this, the number of days is configurable from the “Feed Stats” page in the “Settings” section of the WordPress admin interface.
