    Hi. WP SlimStat is great, unfortunately it's not compatible with most plugins.

    DB Cache Reloaded Fix plugin seems good, does anybody know are they compatible?

    Here is the link of DB Cache Reloaded Fix:

    That's not true, from what I can see. Would you please list all the plugins that are incompatible with WP SlimStat?

    DB Cache Reloaded Fix is compatible with my plugin, but since it caches most db queries, WP SlimStat won't be able to give you real-time analytics.

    Cheers,
    Camu

    It's being mentioned in the WP SlimStat FAQ:

    This plugin is incompatible with WP Supercache, WP Cache, Hyper Cache, or any page-based caching plugin.

    My knowledge is limited. Can you please suggest me any cache plugin that can work good with WP SlimStat? I've tried plenty of analytics, but personally WP SlimStat is the best. It has detailed reports and can track bots, very useful for improving my SEO.

    Regards,
    Handoko.

    Okay, I see what you mean now. Yes, I'm aware of this problem, and it will be fixed in version 3.0. No ETA has been established yet.

    I've voted "works" several times, I've been using your WP SlimStat since February 2012, I even rated it 5 stars. It's really a great analytic. By using it I can learn Google bots visiting my sites. Also spambots, so I can take necessary actions to stop or ban the bad bots. I'm just a new freelance blogger/webdesigner, once I can make money from the web, I'll be sure to donate to show my appreciation.

    And I'm sorry, there was a typing mistake previously, I mean:
    ... unfortunately it's not compatible with most CACHING plugins.

    Handoko,

    Thank you for your kind words and for your votes. WP SlimStat can be used in many different ways indeed, and I'm actually planning to add a functionality to alert the admin if bots exceed a given number of pageviews, so that you can take the appropriate actions or write your own sub-plugin that does that for you.

    Be warned, though, that by making WP SlimStat fully compatible with SuperCache and friends, and by enabling this 'cache friendly mode', you will pretty much lose the bot tracking functionality. There's no way around it unfortunately, because what caching plugins do is try to minimize the execution of PHP code and MySQL queries, while on the other side WP SlimStat needs to execute some PHP/MySQL code EVERY TIME a new pageview occurs. As you can see they are pulling the two ends of the same cord ;)

    The only way I can solve this problem is by following Google Analytics' example, and creating a Javascript-based tracking mechanism. This is what Jetpack and other analytics tools do already, by the way. But bots just ignore Javascript, and so they can't be tracked. Unless you have some other ideas that could work!

    ... unfortunately it's not compatible with most CACHING plugins.

    Right, now that makes sense.
