    I installed the wordpress stats and it was working fine for a few days then yesterday nothing. I know I got traffic because I had click out from my old blog to the new one. (I just moved from wordpress.com to a .org) Can anyone tell me what to look at to get my stats up and running again?

    Thanks.

    I installed the wordpress stats

    Which plugin did you install? There's a number of them with that name.

    If it's this one, I don't see the smilely face on your blog so it may not be loading. Have you done any modification to your blog's theme or site recently? Make sure that there's a wp_footer() call in your theme's footer.php file as it;s needed.

    This is the plugin I used http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/. I have not modified anything ~ as I only know enough to make a mess. :) maybe I should just delete it and reload it.

    I went to the footer area in my theme editor area and this is what it says:

    <div style="clear:both;"></div>
    <div style="clear:both;"></div>
    <div id="foot">
    Powered by WordPress | Using Bluebird theme by Randa Clay | Copyright © <?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | Top
    </div></div>
    </body>
    </html>

    If this isn't right can you tell me what to put and where to put it?

    Thanks.

  4. Somewhere in your theme, probably in the footer.php but maybe in one of the other files, there should be code that looks similar to this:
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    Where is that line? The WordPress.com stats plugin will not work without a call to wp_footer in your theme somewhere.

    If it's not there, you need to add it to the footer, before the </body> tag.

    I tried adding <?php wp_footer(); ?> to my template and it messed up my template. -_-
