Installation Instructions

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it to work.

  1. Upload wp-power-stats.zip to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Unzip wp-power-stats.zip in the folder
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
The plugin does not work, what should I do?

Disable and then re-enable the plugin in the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
If that does not help, try disabling other installed plugins, to exclude the possibility of a plugin conflict.

Where are the settings for the plugin located?

They are located under ‘Statistics’ section in the ‘Settings’ section.

When I test the plugin, the pageview number increments by 2, is it a bug?

If you test the plugin by loading the blog, make sure that you have the setting ‘Administration Exclusion’ under the ‘Exclusions’ tab set to ‘yes’. One hit is formed from the blog view, the other one from the administration panel hit if the setting is set to ‘no’.

Why the sudden drop of visitors number when I upgraded to version 2.0?

The version 2.0 uses a completely new method to detect only real human visitors.


Great work

Security problems with this one.

I don’t see anything else posted, and if you try to contact the author, you get pitched for a bunch of services that have nothing to do with the plugin.

I installed this plugin on a site I built for a veterinarian’s office. That site, along with several others, was hacked, and malicious content was planted, specifically links to porn sites. I had to reconstruct most of the site to recover it, but when I got everything running again, I noticed that all of the search terms the plugin was registering were requests for porn material–a fairly long list, in fact.

I uninstalled the plugin, believing that the search terms were left over from when the site had been hacked and the crawlers hadn’t updated the info. But when the terms kept coming back after several days, I looked in the database and found that the plugin had left all of its residue behind, even though I deleted it and asked that all related files be removed.

I believe this is a serious shortcoming in this plugin–you should not have to remove data after deleting any plugin, and my experience is a good case in point for why.

Basic function don’t work


The trafic origin are not working well, and after 6 months reported no solution for it.
