  • Did you figure out which plugin is not compatible? I have tried to find a list of such plugins, but without any luck.

    Marius: I run WordPress on four site with very similar configuration. So, why does one update automatic, but the others three do not. In other words, I have not configured the update one way or the other.

    We should not require a plugin to configure update, this should be in the core. Another thing that is missing from WordPress is the possibility to go back to previous version. Maybe you have a different opinion?

    Fortunately for me, the site that did update automatically, did not experience any error. Others, from WP-forum, were not that lucky.

    I forgot to mention that the update is of course WordPress 6.0

    alexcumbers: if you mark the content of a post and copy and paste it into another post the formatting is preserved. In other words, this is actually built into the system. You just dont see it until you try it.

    I do this all the time, I frequently publish an updated version of an old post, but I do not need a plugin for this. I just copy the text from the old post to a new post, I have to make a new post for this, but I have no problem with that. The structure of the post is preserved. Works perfectly for me.

    Thanks Steven, it was Yoast SEO, what a releaf.
    I still think the post-section could be more flexible in the core. I am surprised how rigit it is after all these years.

    I guess the values for % Of are the ones that I should be looking at, but what does N/A mean? Does it mean that the plugin has not calculated the value or does it mean that this part of WordPress does not need to be sweeped?

    If it is the latter, it is strange because I have N/A for my database. So the database that has not been optimized for 7 years is already optimized. Does that make sense? Does the database auto-optimize? What’s going on?

    Thanks again for the useful information. I have now installed the plugin and am learning about it before I start optimizing my database.

    The positive about this plugin is that I can choose what I sweep.

    What I miss is basic practical information about the plugin and how to use it, especially for users that are new to this. I was surprise by the lack of basic practical facts – I had to use Google to find good information about the plugin.

    What guide can you reccomend for WP-Sweep?

    Thank you

    Thanks for the answers sofar. It seems that using a plugin might be the best choice because it does the job more or less for you.

    Is WP-Sweep the beste choice? I have seen the reviews and most of the reviews say it is excellent while a few (2 of 100) say this plugin ruin their sites.

    I will of cource take backup first, but what is your take on plugins for this job? What is your choice? Which plugin would you use?

    I have only deactivated the plugin, not deleted it. I have had no trouble since. It never occured to me that deleting it might upset the database. Anyone have that experience?

    It seems that some users are having nothing but trouble and it seems that this plugin is effected by a certain amount of posts. Unfortunately there is no support here. It seems that the developers dont read this forum.

    It just occured to me that you might have to deactive the plugin, then delete the plugin and install a fresh new version of WP Statistics. In my case, I am not willing to take the risk. How about other users? What is your experience?

    In my opinion it is not safe. I had to deactivate the plugin in december 2020 because my site went down. Three months late i activated it again, but two hour later my site went down again. Now I have given up on WP Statistics, it is too risky. I use Google Analytics now and I am very happy.

    The reason for the unstable plugin in my case might be that I have over 3000 posts in my site.

    It is interesenting to hear what other users think.

    I am sorry that I cannot answer your question directly, but my experience is that WP Statistics is nothing but trouble – it started about 4 months ago – after an update then my site went down. Fortunately I managed to deactivate the plugin. About three months later I activated the plugin again, hoping that the plugin was being fixed after several updates. About two hours later my site went down again.

    WP Statistics is a very useful plugin, but it is too dangerous to use after an update in november/december 2020. As far as my site is conserned this plugin is history. I have been using Google Analytics for over a week now and I am very happy with it – it provides the statistics I need.

    I just wanted to warn everyone. I used WP Statistics for several years and had no problem, but something happened to the plugin in 2020.

    I just tried Spotlight mode now and I did not know it existed. Thank you for pointing this out. The problem is the implementation – the text dims for the blocks that are not active. The old way was far better – it was a small vertical line on the left side of the block. Dimming the rest of the block gives you less overview of all the blocks when you are editing a post.
