Multsite compatibility uncertain
By , for WP 4.3

One multisite uninstalled correctly, while the other refused to uninstall due to false error stating: "You cannot delete a plugin while it is active on the main site."
Plugin was never activated on main site.

Fix was the following:

then deactivate and delete

Simple, lightweight with most of the info you want

Jetpack slowed down my site so I was on the lookout for a new Stats pugin. This is lightweight and beautifully sums up the information in an easy to understand format.
Thank you for this plugin!

I check my visitor statistics from my iPad. Stats look really nice and stylish on desktop and mobiles. I hope it is going to be updated regularly.
Yes, I recommend this...

A lovely dashboard replacement

It's a lot more inspiring to log in to visitor stats every day than tired old WordPress news. The number of new comments shows over in the left hand menu in any case. The rest is unnecessary.

Visual monochrome heatmap of visitors is gorgeous and relaxing.

Why four stars then?

The plugin author clearly has the number of visits for the top pages. Why isn't he showing us those visitor numbers? He could also allow us to click on past days and see the visits to each post for those days. I understand lightweight. But this would be huge additional functionality at almost no price. Under Top Links there is the same question of showing the number of referrers applies to top referrers. We should be allowed to group search engines (my list is mostly taken up by international Google). We should also be able to disable internal referrers.

The traffic source numbers in the left hand column are wrong as well (and contradicted by the other info in the page): 0% search engine (clearly we are at over 50%), 100% links (we are sadly closer to 20%) and 0% direct (we certainly have 20% here as well.

In any case WP Power Stats is a great start. I hope we'll be able to see some improvements soon. I've got $50 burning a hole in my pocket for the author when he adds my improvements (and substantially more if he can add my PS).

PS. It's also possible to get top search terms from Google Webmaster Tools by tying into their API but that would be for bonus points.

User friendly!

I originally had a wordpress.com website and was use to their stat layout. This one is very similar and even better in my opinion.

Plugin Does Not Work

This plugin does not work for my blog.

Just what I needed
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin is exactly what I was looking for! I wanted a visually appealing stats display for my dashboard, and this is perfect for me. I like that I can set how long to store the records, because I use another service for long term stats that I make available to my visitors. I wanted something for myself that was quick and easy to use, and provides the details I need at a glance on my WordPress Dashboard. It would be even better if the plugin could also show pageloads for the Top Posts, because the list of the popular posts doesn't help me as much as it could because it doesn't contain that breakdown of the views to each page listed. That's just feedback for the plugin developers though--if you're looking for a plugin that will add helpful stats-at-a-glance for your site, this one is easy to use and very customizable!

Great. Even more with 2.0 update.

I've been using Power Stats for few months and really like it. Dashboard overview is clean and offers most important data.

Only thing that I wished to change was exclusion of search crawlers and option to exclude IP addresses, pages and user agents - all of these and more came with 2.0 version, making Power Stats the most accurate (for anyone's needs) plugin for WordPress, while still maintaining the beautiful simplicity it has had from version 1.0

I recommend this plugin with great pleasure.
