Heavy Analytics


IMPORTANT NOTE: This plugin is no longer supported by the authors – Read more about why. Please feel free to fork it at Github or contact the authors.

Heavy Analytics is a WordPress plugin used to track content and user statistics.

We have a lot of ideas to extend this plugin and would love any feedback you have. Please send feedback to and join our email list at

This plugin will be best used on blogs or single site WordPress communities with lots of comments and/or authors. Our goal is to give community managers another tool to determine who the power users and influencers are in their community.

While it currently only provides data for single site WordPress installations, we have BuddyPress and Multi-site addons in the works!

See the plugin in action as well as how to use it:


  • A user's avatar image with a text overlay displaying the number of posts they have published and their "nice name".
  • A list of the five best commenters. Displays their avatars, number of comments, and their "nice names".
  • A graphical representation of the site content along a timeline.
  • The "Site Health" section give a high level snapshot of how your site is doing today compared to the past.
  • Site wide content totals in a table layout.


  1. Unzip the plugin
  2. Upload the Heavy Analytics plugin directory and all its contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Is this another Google Analytics type thing?

Nope. Heavy Analytics is about analyzing the quality of the content of your site, not all amount/source/referrer/etc.

When will BuddyPress-specific analytics be available?

Coming soon!
