My blog stats are at 559 right now and we are about to launch the website. This needs to be at 0 – it’s very important for the organization that the stats are correct otherwise we cannot use this widget.
Is there a way of resetting it or taking the widget off the site and re-adding it?
Go to Appearance <Widgets. Where it says First Footer Area, right under Primary Widget Area, drag your stats widget back to the list of widgets. Wait a moment, let it load and drag the stats widget back. It should go to 0.
P.S. Your blog looks great!!!
