WP Statistics
[resolved] Sudden drop in year total (8 posts)

    I am not in the habit of checking statistics too often, a watched pot and all that...

    But I do keep an eye on them and the last time I looked, the annual total for my site (which is only three months old) was around 125,000. I just looked again today and it has dropped to 95,000.

    I haven't changed anything so obviously, the way the figures are calculated has changed but for those who are interested in statistics, it doesn't make sense to have changes made to calculations - especially without letting people know that it is being done and I don't see anything in the changelog for v 5.4 which indicates any significant changes.

    There hasn't been any changes to how the visits is calculated, perhaps you have enabled pruning? Check Statistics->Settings->Maintenance.

    As I mentioned, I haven't changed any settings; in fact, the last time I changed anything was in the first couple of weeks of installing the plugin. I looked at the settings just now and pruning is set to 365 days (which I assume is the default) but as the site is only about four months old, that should not make any difference anyway.

    Well, I don't know what has happened. All I know is that the data I have recorded seems to be pretty irrelevant now.

    Can you check your database, look at the wp_statistics_visit table and see what the oldest date on the data in the 'last_counter' field is.

    The oldest date is 2014-02-08 which is a few days after I launched my site and probably coincides with when I installed the plugin.

    Sounds like the data is still there, just not being displayed properly, can you take screenshot?

    Hello,

    I appreciate your support but having been contemplating whether or not to do so for the past month, I have decided to discontinue my site.
