Absolutely bogus results
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have the current version (8.8) of that plugin, my WP installation is up-to-date — and this plugin is absolutely unusable, a plugout, in fact. Not only does it provide results that are in the order of 10 times too high compared to real visit / hit counts (as provided by Google Analytics and other tools), it also has serious internal errors: I regularly encounter instances where for a given day the Hits graph has a factor 2 error (too high), or conversely, the number logged is 2 times the value shown in the graph. Good luck to anyone who is considering to monetize based on these visitor stats! I have tried my best to exclude counts from local tools (e.g., link checking) — to no avail. Are you counting database transactions rather than pages / posts served? If every image would generate a hit count, that might explain the results — but of course that would be useless. If indeed, as a recent report indicates, the plugin also includes malware, then that's not just bad, but a disaster. I'll remove the plugin now.

PHP 5.3

Can't even activate it because it needs php 5.3
[Expletive deleted], i don't know how to update php as i'm not a freaking programer.

Too prescriptive for the PHP version
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin requires PHP version 5.3.0 and above.

As I use a shared server, not one that I build myself, I have no choice about the version of PHP. This makes the plugin unusable for me.

It's a pity, because this plugin looks exactly like what I want.

table wp_statistics_historical doesn't exist
By , for WP 4.0

Des messages d'erreurs suite à la montée de version WP Statistics 8.2 : "table wp_statistics_historical doesn't exist"
Est-il possible d'avoir une nouvelle verison avec le bug corrigé, ou sinon de pouvoir revenir à la version précédente ?
Merci :-)

Broken for me with 3.6.1 and Geotheme
By ,

Other statistic trackers work, but this is broken for me with 3.6.1 and Geotheme. The Admin section works, but the main site goes blank when I activate this.

CONSTANT Updates
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is the most annoying plugin out there- I check my blog once a week and I can always be sure there's an update for this program. What is this- a Flash Plugin? BOOOOOO! I finally got rid of it, and I'll never look back. It'll save an extra round-trip to the database anyway. Good riddance!

can we have back the increase/ decrease visitor back?
By , for WP 3.4.2

It looks great and light but beside the bar missing status icon, you cannot fix the data loss or at least correct the stats like in the previous version.
I updated to the lastet version and I lost all previous data including 1,380,000 visitor count and I cannot rectify that now :(

"Upgrade" deletes statistics data
By , for WP 3.5.1

Also, after the latest update the icon is no longer shown in the menu bar.
