[Plugin: WordPress.com Stats] Switch function gone in 1.5 ? (4 posts)

    I loved being able to switch from one set of blog stats to another without having to log on to each individual site.

    When I upgraded to WordPress stats package 1.5 the ability to switch seems to have disappeared.

    At first I thought it might be related to my theme, but the same seems to be the case on different themes. Is that function coming back ?

    This seems to be a problem that comes and goes. I deactivated 1.5 then activated it. That worked for a short time, but now it's not working again.

    The switch function from earlier versions is gone in 1.5 when viewing stats on your blog's dashboard. If you view stats from any WordPress.com dashboard you can still switch.

    This is because the plugin now uses an API key to authenticate with WordPress.com. Earlier versions used an iframe, which meant your browser connected directly to WordPress.com and you had to be logged in to see the stats. As such, we could tell who was looking at the stats and show a list of other blogs belonging to that person. Using the API key, your blog can show stats to any Author or above. Therefore we don't know who is going to see the report.

    If you like the switch function, use http://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats

    Andy - thanks. I'll bookmark the Url you gave me, that'll work. The first thing I do every day is go thru the stats for each of the sites so being able to do that from one dashboard is helpful.
