Summary Tables for stats

  1. Did wordpress.com remove the summary tables link? Is there no way to access historical site statistics anymore?

    The blog I need help with is parezcoydigo.wordpress.com.

  2. The link is gone from the bar graph to summary tables, but manually can be reached at:

    https://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?view=table

  3. I have noticed the same thing, I used that a lot.

  4. I just asked the same question. I hope they didn't do away with it or plan to. I liked that page. Had a lot of information all in one place...

  5. Please click the link that was provided by minitermquito to locate to summary tables https://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?view=table

  6. but where is the link to it on the stats page, how do you get to it without having to bookmark that link

    Thanks for the manual link. I sure wish they would let us know what is going on here, as I posted elsewhere, this is key feature for me.

  8. Staff make adjustments to code continually every day sometimes many time each day as WordPress.com is on continuous rollout. I also have a summaries -------> link on my stats page
    https://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?view=postviews&summarize&numdays=7

  9. Staff making adjustments, I think we all know that.
    I have that too, but it is the other one that is more important, and it would be good if it could be put back on a link.
    One of the best things about WordPress is their stats, I don't like to see them playing around and ruining them.

  10. Exactly. Leanne has a point. If they decided it was ok to remove the link, maybe they're eventually going to decide its ok not to have that page at all. A manual link wont do any good at that point.

    But thanks minitermquito for the manual link.

  11. This is a very important feature for me as well. I use it all day to track my clicks. Is it possible for WordPress to send us out a notice PRIOR to all the changes so that we can determine how best to go forward with our sites?

  12. Is it possible for WordPress to send us out a notice PRIOR to all the changes so that we can determine how best to go forward with our sites?

    Yes, it's possible but I have been here for over 6 years and have never seen that happen.

    P.S. I forgot to state that the first time I posted here I tagged the thread for a Staff response.

  13. That would be terrific. I have to state that all the changes that are being made are exceptionally frustrating. I'd like to get into my dashboard to continue working on a post and start a new one. Unfortunately, I can't even find the dashboard on my page. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    I have to state that all the changes that are being made are exceptionally frustrating.

    The reality of being a WordPress.com blogger is that this platform is on continuous roll-out and code changes are made daily. Some days as many as 2 dozen code changes are made. There is no notice ever given of changes to existing features and functions or implementations of new features and functions. Our feedback occurs only after the fact here in the support forums where only a minority ever post. Hence the said feedback can be readily discounted as Staff can say but millions of other bloggers aren't complaining.

    I'd like to get into my dashboard to continue working on a post and start a new one. Unfortunately, I can't even find the dashboard on my page.

  15. Found it! Thanks timethief.

  16. Not having a link also means that those using the WordPress mobile apps can't access the historical stats table anymore. No way to manually input the url in the app.

  17. @socialeyesnyc
    You're welcome.

    @minitermquito
    I don't have a mobile. Can't the stats summery tables be accessed by logging in, starting out here and clicking through? http://m.wordpress.com

    Because I use the table view a lot it comes up when I start to type a wordpress address into my browser but the removal of the link is really frustrating. It'd be great to get it back but in the meanwhile I guess a bookmark is probably a good plan.

  19. Bookmark it for sure as I have done. Hopefully after the stats work is done Staff will replace the link.

  20. Fingers crossed!

  21. Fingers crossed!

    Is that for the return of the link? If so then I think it will be returned. But if you mean are referring to

    send us out a notice PRIOR to all the changes so that we can determine how best to go forward with our sites?

    then I sincerely doubt that will happen.

  22. That's for the return of the link.

    It would be delightful if we had warning when major changes are coming, but you are a tremendous help and always guide us to the proper navigation of the new system. And, for that, I thank you!

  23. @timethief No. It can't. And in fact, access to stats from that mobile site platform is being deprecated in favor of wordpress.com/#!/my-stats.

    And, that would defeat the purpose of developing beautiful mobile apps for people to use, now wouldn't it. All of this is quite simple-- the link on the stats page to the table summary view was removed today. I started this to ask if that's a permanent change. I hope not, and seems like others do too.

  24. Sometimes it's just as if they are rolling out something new for the sake of rolling out something new. Moving the stats summaries is just plain awkward because it contains the most relevant information after what is happening right now. Millions don't complain? Yea, that's the real world for you. Think climate change lol.

  25. Thank you to mintermquito and timethief for the information. To any WP staff reading this thread, I consider summary stats and an easily accessible link to them on the stats page to be essential. Some of us find it visually difficult to read bar graphs, and because of the nature of my blog subject and traffic patterns, being able to look at long term trends at a glance is much more informative than the relatively limited time frame a bar graph can cover. Please return an easily accessible link to the interface. I use that page daily. Thank you.

    Millions don't complain? Yea, that's the real world for you.

    I hope you understand that I had the guts it took to tell it like it is based on over 6 years of experience here. The real world for us bloggers here at WordPress.com is continuous roll-out. Hence, we either have to accept that or move off to another place to blog. So when Staff does reinstate that summary tables link don't forget what I said. When it comes to continual changes we either suck it up or we move on.

  27. Oh absolutely for sure. Been here 7 years and have rolled with all the punches, but still, in all that time I have yet so see anything that looks like it could be as permanently annoying like going to a bookmark to check the stats summaries. WordPress is awesome, but nothing in this world is perfect and if it was, it wouldn't stay that way too long :)

    Oh good. I'm relieved that you aren't new. I do agree with your last sentence too. (P.S. I'm timethief but I'm logged in under my other username account.)

  29. Hi, there, you know me better as neath :)
    But I do have to wonder why all the changes, all the time it seems. Trying to make a better wheel? Seems almost like a waste of time, talent, and resources.
    But there is also probably tons of stuff we don't factor in, such as costs, etc...

    My stats summary is gone too, but I can still access the stats summary from the dashboard page.
