WordPress.com Stats Plugin Failing in 2.6.1? (4 posts)

    I just upgraded to 2.6.1 from 2.5 and my WordPress Stats Plugin doesn't seem to be gathering any new entries...Did everyone suddenly stop visiting my blog for the last 36 hours?

    Based on your post on your blog it sounds like you changed theme. My guess is that the theme is missing a call to <?php wp_footer(); ?> in its footer.php.

    When I'm not logged in to my own blog, and I view the page source, I see some lines that begin <script src="http://stats.wordpress.com/e-200834.js" type="text/javascript"></script>.

    Thanks Lloyd!
    I added <?php wp_footer(); ?> to my theme's footer as follows:

    <br clear="all" />
    <div id="footer">
    <div class="footer">Copyright © 2007 <?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | Designed by - Jai <!-- <?php echo get_num_queries(); ?> queries. <?php timer_stop(1); ?> seconds. --></div>
    <div class="top">Top</div>
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    <div id="wrapper_"></div>

    Hopefully this is right...I'll give it an hour or so and see if anyone comes to visit.

    Wow, just like that the stats are recording again!
    Can I send you an ElseWear Polo for getting this corrected?

    So if this theme didn't support Stats, how would I have known that before I installed it?

    Also, how do I know if my SEO plugin is still working?
