[Resolved] [Plugin: Google Analyticator] Dashboard widget no longer authenticates

  • G’day, thanks for the nice plugin.

    Sometime between last night and this morning (Aussie time) the dashboard widget stopped being able to authenticate. The settings page still says that the plugin/website has been authenticated, but the dashboard widget gives the “No Analytics account selected. Double check…” message.

    I’ve checked a few sites that other people run, and they’ve got the same issue, so I’m pretty sure it’s not just me 🙂

  • Yes, Ross, same here. Am hunting for an alternative.

    Me too…. 🙁

    Same here

    I read somewhere that google changed its API into 3.0 and so all wordpress plugin using the old version of API crushed. The problem is there is no plugin updated for this kind of API. I just tried more than 10 plugins and none works for me. The only on is Google Analytics for WordPress by Yoast but it does not have a dash widget.
    Tell me if you find a permanent solution!

    Same here – hopefully the plugin will be updated soon to use the latest version of the Google API.

    I hope so!

    Yep, can’t auth. Please provide working alternatives here, ill search as well 🙂

    So, it seems that the author has officially announced that he no longer has time to re-architect this plugin and has suggested that someone else pick it up to do the necessary modifications.

    I’m interested in looking at it myself, but that will involve a learning curve to understand how he’s architected it originally, and what needs to be changed. So no promises on timescales or even IF I’ll find that necessary time….


    BTW, here’s the official announcement, in case anyone wants to read it:


    If you find an alternative, I’d love to hear about it. Am sad about this one, but understand the reasoning…

    @jlandells: thanks for the explanation and link; now I know. I wonder how hard it would be to update to the new API? Will investigate when time permits.

    @everyone: it’s not the end of the world, this plugin still functions just fine other than the dashboard widget. No need to thrash around looking for something else, someone will undoubtedly patch this plugin for the new API and get the dashboard widget working again.

    The plugin author is in discussion with a new owner – so stay tuned for an announcement soon and I am sure the new developer is planning to rectify the issue ASAP.

    The plugin Google Analytics Dashboard (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-analytics-dashboard/) is still working…

    Prefer the way this plugin does things though 🙂

    This is sad, this is an excellent plug-in. Deactivating with a heavy heart.

    I hope someone that has the time to re-engineer the API calls can run with it.

    As mentioned the GA tracking still works… it’s only the dashboard that has stopped working…
