I have the wordpress.com stats plugin installed on my site, at http://www.inter-sections.net. Until a few days ago, it worked very well. Then, I moved the site from DreamHost to my own private server. At that point, something went wrong with the stats tracking in that it split the stats into two sub-sites, one of them being the internal hostname of the new server. However, thanks to rmccue’s help on the irc channel, that’s now resolved by adding a rewrite rule in the .htaccess to force everything into “www.inter-sections.net”.
Another problem that happened, which is not resolved, is that the stats are now logged mostly against a single article (http://www.inter-sections.net/2007/09/18/iterm-for-the-lazy/). I know for a fact that that article is not getting all those hits, because most of the referrers are pointing to another one of my articles (http://www.inter-sections.net/2007/11/13/how-to-recognise-a-good-programmer/). Other articles are not getting any hits at all – a handful have 1 hit.
I’m not sure why WordPress.com stats is doing that, I haven’t been able to come up with a possible explanation. Any help and/or suggestions would be welcome, as I’d like to get WordPress.com stats working again since I quite like it. I’ve tried asking this on the channel, but no one had any suggestions (rmccue suggested that I wait for photo_matt to get online!).
