WordPress.com Stats
Two blogs - two different designs!? (3 posts)

    I'm using the stats plugin on two self-hosted blogs. The older one looks like this:

    The newer one like this:

    Why is that so? The plugin files are completely the same. I can't seem to find an option to change the design. I'd like to have them both look the "old" way, because in the new design, I'm missing the referrers, search terms, top posts etc.
    Also, it keeps redirecting me to dashboard.wordpress.com all the time. -.-

    Please help!

    I really don't get this ...

    Today I installed the stats plugin on a brand new test blog, and it has the old design. The one from the first screenshot.

    Then I installed it on another blog, and it has the new design. Also, I had to assign it to my wordpress.com account before I could use it. On the above-mentioned test blog, it never asked me to do that. It worked without that.

    Please, can't someone explain this strange behavior? It really sucks, it drives me crazy, I hate the new thing. I want the old look back.

    I've narrowed it down to line 236:
    $get = wp_remote_get($url, array('timeout'=>300));
    The HTTP request fails, it returns:

    SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK.

    As a result the plugin inserts that stupid, ugly looking wordpress.com iframe instead of the plain old flash graphics.

    Haven't found a "real" solution yet - my quick & dirty hack is to change the line like this:
    $get = wp_remote_get($url, array('timeout'=>300, 'sslverify'=>false));
    (Same can be done in line 1009 for the dashboard widget.)

    [Is anyone reading this anyway? ^^]
