is anyone else having a problem with their 'Blog Stats'?

  1. my stats suddenly dropped off the planet last week, and they've bearly recovered. my hosts stats and all my other stat reports are telling me everything's fine. i like the WP 'blog stats' but they've just stopped working. is there a problem that i don't know about.

  2. Mine quit working yesterday and I have no idea who to contact to fix it. I've posted this to someone else who is having problems which are not yet resolved.

    I searched the forums and suspect my problem is related to a new theme I uploaded and possibly some conflict with SiteMeter code on my blog (

    When I changed my theme I noticed I was getting no hits and realized I had forgotten to add the SiteMeter code to the new theme found here:

    At first I put the sitemeter code in the sidebar as it would not show up when I added it to the stylesheet.

    Then I moved it to index.php page and it sits at the bottom of my blog.

    That, obviously, fixed Sitemeter which now has stats for me but since yesterday (when I loaded the sitemeter code) I get nothing on WP Blog Stats.

    Did I do something wrong? On my old theme both stats features worked ok.

  3. Hmm.. I have not changed themes, have no custom themes and my hits have dropped off as well, I just thought people had quit visiting my site.. but maybe not?..

  4. I usually notice a drop-off in visitors on Sundays and holidays, but this time, the numbers jumped.

    But now that you mention it - the weekly and monthly chart looks OK, but the daily chart is all borked - it's one-quarter sized, squeezed into the bottom right of the space it usually occupies.

  5. As a follow-up, I purposely disabled SiteMeter for a couple of hours (at a time when I knew I would be getting traffic) and Blog Stats STILL did not work.

  6. antzinpantz - I just clicked links in your blog. Your stats work okay for your wpcom blog.

    A non-wpcom blog? check the stats readme file.

  7. I hate to sound like a total moron but how did you check my stats? What did you click? Where did you go?

    On my dashboard I get nothing for the past three days where, before that, all was well.

    And where can I find the readme file for stats?

  8. Mark,

    I "broke the code" and figured it out. I dug around until I found a post about the stats ( and in the FAQ the author mentioned a line of code that I needed to enter before the </body> tag. I did that and all is well.
