    Hi there,

    in the moment i use WP Statistics but since they are updated the Version to 13.X a lot of errors and problems are starting. i.E. Database crash etc. the developers are not able since a couple of month to fix the problems and i use the last stable version 12.6.13.

    Now i’m looking for another Statistics Plug In and found yours. Would it be possible to switsh the statistics from WP statistics to KoKo or will statistcis get lost and all starts from zero?

    Can i show a counter on the front page like it is now on my website? Please take a look and let me know.

    Thanks for some short replys in advance!

  • This is an interesting question. Wonder if like for the SEO plugins, there is a way to ease transition from other popular analytics plugins… For example, like running a one-time script to initially populate the Koko database tables.

    Basically for me i don’t need a full takeover from the database, it would be enough, if the Visits, Hits etc. for the lifetime period of the website could get taken over in some way. So that i.E. the Frontend Counter shows the same as it shows now. The rest will be ok if not.

    But have another question, is it possible to clear the database from time to time, so that the database will not blow up to endless entrys? i.E. delet all entrys which are older then 1 year or 400 days or something like that? Without deleting the lifetime statistics of hits etc.

    There is no way to import statistics from another plugin or platform a this time.
    There is a feature request for CSV import/export.

    Koko will normally clean the database (delete old statistics after a certain period) to keep WordPress running smoothly, so keeping that in mind it may not be the best tool to show “total page views” to your visitors even if it was possible (and also it’s not possible currently). I could put in a feature request to add shortcodes that show certain stats to visitors but that would be something like “page views in the last 365 days” or whatever you’ve set your database purging interval at.

    Hi @lapzor ,

    thanks for letting me know. Well as said i don’t need a full import of statistics, the only thing would be the counter to show the actual full hits and visits as it is in the moment on the website, otherwise i “loose” the lifetime basic Stastistic for the Website, which would be a shame to the visitors. Because it woul always look like there was no visitors one year ago ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Maybe you have an idea or another Plug in (counter for front end only) that will not delete his entrys after a set time?

    That the statistic (for analyzing the top 10 pages etc.) itself will get deleted after a set time (for me round about 400 days will be enough) is no problem for me.

    I’ve added a request for a persistent counter to the feature request I linked above.

    Ok, thanks @lapzor could you let me know here as soon this feature is available? Ah and it should be possible to take over the current hit count of my page by entering the numer manually or so.

    Hello again @lapzor maybe i can use Koko for my analytics in Admin Area and a different Counter for Front End. Any suggestions for a simple counter? This could be the “best” soloution to avoid database up blowing…

    I don’t have any third party plugins to suggest for this, but other than that I suppose that would work.
