I have several WordPress websites do I need an API Project for each one?

No, you don’t. You can use the same API Project (same API Key, Client Secret and Client ID) for all your websites.

Some settings are missing from your video tutorial …

We are constantly improving our plugin, sometimes the video tutorial may be a little outdated.

Still a lot of problems with this plugin: For example I might select '30 days' but instead of having 30 dots on the graph representing 30 days I get 16 dots! What's up with that? The dots that are there representing days you would think should be in sequential order going back each day for thirty days... but they don't. The days skip and change all over the place they're honestly not in any sort of order at all - forward two weeks, back four days, forward two days back nine days etc... This could be a nice plugin with a a little more work but at the moment it's still very buggy and nowhere near as good as the 'Google Analytics Plugin' which is far superior. Still fingers crossed for a new release that works a little better.
