i prefer the old stats display

  1. fabiusmaximus2000

    The new format is nice -- but the graphs for individual posts no longer have totals including BOTH syndicated and on-site views. Two-thirds of my traffic is syndicated, so this format no longer shows a post's hits!

  2. New stats graph doesn't work as well for me. Sometimes mouse-over works, sometimes not.

  3. Far as I can tell the same info appears to be all there and accessible... but the graph's ugly, intrusive, and seems to dominate the entire dashboard.
    And what's the point of having the lower half shaded anyway... is not a graph line perfectly understandable and instantly informative on its own?
    Most times the WP crew score huge brownie points from me with the changes they introduce, but on this occasion its a big thumbs-down.
    I've already written a blog post about this and, as a commenter there so aptly put it, the new graph is an “abhorrent abomination of aesthetics”!

    Thank you, parelie, you are right! That functionality is still there - it is just a hassle to find it. I don't want to switch to the global dashboard - I want to access that information from the dashboard I am on.

    sassycondiments, even your much-missed daily stats can still be found there!

    Maybe it is just a bug that it doesn't work from the single blog's dashboard yet? Maybe we can hope that it will be ironed out in a few days?

  5. why is there no-one who altered it coming on to say why they did it and answer a lot of people who do not like it

    maybe they are working on putting it back to the old stats page

  6. @harrythehandyman "maybe they are working on putting it back to the old stats page"... somehow I doubt that, but I'd certainly be interested to know why they changed it in the first place.
    I'm really hoping it wasn't just one of those "change for change's sake" that so many sites seem to indulge.

  7. @fotdmike , "change for change's sake" i would say your right , still waiting for the boss'es to come on :)

  8. Ever since the new stats graph appeared I can't see weeks and months. Did they disappear until we have gone another week and month (old stats lost) or is it not functioning properly? When I click on weeks and months I get a blank graph box and the number 403.

  9. I checked out the page source for my stats looks like it's made entirely with CSS in the new version of HTML5...very cool!!

    WordPress WAS beginning to be vary enjoyable for me to use. Now every time I open up the Dashboard and go forward, I cringe, want to cry like a baby or run and hide.

    This may not be my "cup o' tea". That's too bad. I was just starting to feel comfortable.

  11. Maybe it is just a bug that it doesn't work from the single blog's dashboard yet? Maybe we can hope that it will be ironed out in a few days?

    Seems I was right...

    Thank you for bringing back the clickable dots in the graph!

  12. Please PLEASE just create an option that allows us to choose which stats page we want.

  13. There will not be an option to switch to the old design.

  14. I hope all mebers posting hear do understand that the most effective way to send Staff feedback is not by posting these Ideas threads. If you want TPTB to hear what you have to say then you address them directly.

  15. OOPS! I forgot to use the spellcheck above - sorry!

    Thanks for letting us know there NOT will be an option to return to the old stats display design.

  16. Prefer old display. This is change for the sake of change, with no improvement.

  17. another change to the stats and the overall stats page , what is going on its getting worse ever time you go to the dashboard

  18. Not sure we're seeing an improvement. It all looks a bit basic now.

  19. For the record I have been here over 4 years. My membership predates the introduction of the stats program at I do NOT have a reputation for shouting but I ♥ LOVE ♥ the new stats program. Thank you Staff. :)

  20. and we all love you TT

  21. @Harry
    That's such a sweet thing to say. Thanks [blushing]

  22. yeah, i am getting that 403 when trying to view months. Not a big deal if this was my blog, but it's for a client! progress. sigh.

  23. I've been blogging on since April 2009 and like the new stats. The bars are similar to statcounter, which I also like very much.

    The rash of complaints about the new stats display and wanting to return to the old one reminded me of the story of a guy who quit blogging because of what he called "complaints about the free ice cream." Having a free blog on is like getting free ice cream with sprinkles on top 365 days a year. Thank you!
