WordPress 2.5 and stats plugin

  • Hi,
    I just upgrade to wordpress 2.5 – my theme is K2 RC3- and also install the WordPress stats plugin. I’m getting stats, but with a little problem: all the views and hits go to the same post (with pages it appears to works without problems).

    I search about that and find out some bugs relationated with that, but appears to happend in old versions of WordPress and the plugin.

    Does anybody know something about that?

    Thanks 🙂

  • I’m having a similar problem. I installed the WordPress.com Stats 1.2 plugin on my site (WP 2.5) recently and it is working great with one big exception. One page in particular is getting a crazy amount of hits. Where Google Analytics says the page has 80 hits on April 2, WordPress Stats says it got 1665 hits. This isn’t just a one day thing, it’s happened every day since installing the plugin. The hit count for the entire blog is similar to what Google Analytics says, so far it appears just this page is way off (at least it’s the most obvious error). Help!

    What are the links to the problem pages on your site? The only way to debug what’s going on is to look at the output and to see what we can see.

    I’m also having a problem with the stat plugin. I don’t get many hits on my blogs. They’re mostly for family and friends. So I wasn’t real surprised when the stats plugin said I had 0 visitors. However, I have a new comment from 4/2/08 and it still says I’ve had no visitors. I know it’s only 1, but shouldn’t it show up?

    I am also experiencing strange things with WordPress.com Stats after upgrading to WordPress 2.5. One article is getting “all” the views and suddenly very few articles get views. But referer-links tell me that I have views on more articles than WordPress.com Stats indicates.

    I reiterate, telling us about a problem with stats without actually giving us the links to your websites is pointless. We cannot answer your questions without seeing the code it’s producing.

    The WordPress.com stats plugin produces output that makes visitors browsers pull from a site on wordpress.com. Part of that javascript that it produces passes along the post number. Without seeing that script and seeing what’s going on, we cannot help you.

    I use the wordpress.com stats plugin version 1.2 on my sites. It works fine with 2.5.

    My site. I just turn the plugin on again.

    Thank you very much 🙂

    Edit: i notice that the plugin puts the hits on the last entry from the first page of posts

    No one else noticed anything strange with WordPress.com Stats after upgrading to WordPress 2.5?

    It appears to be a problem with the recent posts widget. If you remove that, the problem should go away.

    I’ll investigate further and see about a fix.

    You’re right! Just turn off the recents post block and works 🙂
    I appreciate much your help

    I’ve switched to the Recent Posts-plugin and the problem is solved. Thanks! 🙂

    I have upgraded to WordPress 2.5 and installed the WordPress stat plugin.
    But I can’t see the stat page, each time he ask for “username” and “password”. So I type the same as the admin access. It should work but I got “ERROR: Incorrect password.”
    What can I do…?
    Thanks 🙂

    The WordPress.com Stats username/password is the username/password for your account on WordPress.com. That’s where you got your API key for Akismet and WordPress.Stats.

    Thank you kak. But… I still have the same issue when using the same u../p.. I use for WordPress account.

    So I type the same as the admin access

    Normally access to your wordpress blog (downloaded from WordPress.org) should not be the same as your login/password for WordPress.com.

    After logging in at http://www.yourwebsite/wp-admin, scroll down to your stats, try to login there. If you can’t, click on the lost password. Enter your email and WordPress.com will mail you your password.
