Can't Check Stats

  • Author

    So normally I go to the Dashboard of a Blog, then Click the Chart to the lower Right (The Specific Day), and it would give me a breakdown of what’s being Viewed. But now when I click it, it takes me to my Reader, and when I try to move it to Stats, it will only give me Stats for my Primary Blog… And when I try to switch the Blog upper right, where you can choose which Blog’s Stats are showing, when I change Blogs, it takes me back to the Reader… Then I go back to Stats and it’s the main Blog again

    Any help is appreciated, like to see the actual breakdown of views, not just the grand total. And want to see it on more than my main Blog, it’s always worked before.


    The blog I need help with is



    Lots of folks seem to be having this problem at the moment. I’ll tag this for Staff assistance.



    Same for me – so frustrating that WP keep making changes without testing first. I suspect the code is a bit of a Frankenstein’s Monster and a change in one place just creates problems elsewhere.



    Same problem at Backyard Shooter

    I wish they would just send an email or something before they go changing anything so we could at least know its coming…



    I accept the fact that all things here are in a constant state of flux and always will be. This platform is on continual roll-out and even as many as 20 or more more code changes can be made in a single day. As my blogs aren’t commercial in nature and indeed none of the free hosted blogs are I have no particular need to be able to access stats more than once daily. Consequently, when they aren’t available to me I don’t feel this kind of angst.



    Until it’s fixed, you can always access the old stats page in your site’s Dashboard.

    You can find it at and, of course, replacing “yoursitename” with your site name. It won’t have the pretty look of the New Dash, but you can at least see the activity.



    Clearly it is past my bedtime.

    yoursite meaning yoursitename


    Seems to be a glitch, but not exactly a serious matter. Affects both .com and self-hosted with JetPack. As far as I can see, you just can’t change which site you’re reviewing without getting redirected to the Reader.

    I’m sure it will get worked out.

    We all know (or should know) that Stats aren’t real time anyways.



    Thank you justjennifer, I appreciate the link. I’ll bookmark that for future reference.



    @nvchad2 – You’re welcome. As notawoodpecker said, it will get worked out.


    I feel sorry for them, they can’t afford software testers and UI testers. If they get some money together I will work for them. Then this will never happen again. Come on, guys, you’re supposed to be a world class company so hire some world class staff here!


    OK, it gets weirder.

    I tried to check something for another thread, entered and got redirected to the Reader, not to the site I was checking on.


    They totally need a UI tester and I have the experience. Automattic hire me!


    Umm, we’re all testers. And they don’t have to pay us either.




    We had some issues with a library upgrade there. All should be back to normal, sorry for the issues.



    Thank you, Andy! All is good.


    ^ I can switch between stats pages now, but the issue I mentioned just above still exists.



    Thanks, working like new for me.


    No it isn’t.
