Old stats finally disappeared view hours ago

    Hello, i have a big problem.

    I always went to the old stats with the bookmark https://wordpress.com/my-stats/ because i don’t like, don’t want and don’t use the new stats that are standard since around one or two years.

    Until today it wasnt ever a problem to get to the old ones via the link. Now i get redirected to the new one, and can’t get my loved old stats view again.

    Any help with this? Any possibility to get them back`?

    Thanks for help in advance.

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

    You should be able to see it at https://dudeweblog.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats

    The URL changed.

    And the old notifications page has disappeared too, which is particularly annoying since the new one barely holds a day’s worth of comments for my only moderately busy blog. If I can’t get to my blog every day, I’ll be missing comments all over the place – hardly conducive to building good relationships with commenters. Why can’t these old pages be left for those of us who prefer them?

    Thank u very much for info, guys!
    I allready found the new one that j. linked.

    Still the old one was much better, and it’s very sad, they also took this option away…

    which is particularly annoying since the new one barely holds a day’s worth of comments for my only moderately busy blog.

    Yeah that’s just one of the problems. U can handle it via wp-admin -> comments.

    But the whole new layout is just much worse. I loved the old stats, becaus that was sort of perfectly made.

    Exactly thats the sad main point of all…

    Maybe u also remember the beep-boop-bug two years ago, i made a long article about (partly english, partly german) ->

    The https://xxxx.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats gives you just part of what was so nice about the old stats page. It gives the total views per day — but no at-a-glance breakdown of how many views were from how many visitors. In other words, if two visitors with 200 clicks at various posts — very different than 200 visitors each with one click.

    BRING BACK THE OLD STATS PAGE — or at least, give us the option!!!!!

    Just discovered this same development. I can no longer find out which posts people are visiting, which has been so helpful in the past. Now the stats are essentially useless, unless I want to know at what time of day posts are generally most viewed, as if that information really matters. No, I’m not going to post at that point to get more views. I’m much more interested in which of my articles people are looking at today.

    Ah well, every now and then, blogging gets less powerful. Kind of like getting another round to shock therapy. Slowly we become less effective and just another money generating satellite.

    I just want to say that I am having the same issue with my Blog. I don’t like the new version of the stats page. Please WordPress, let us choose which version we want to use, and don’t make us use the new version.

    Ah, I see it’s not just the old useful and functional stats page, but we can no longer use the old editor either, which means we can’t control our images in the same ways. A sad, sad day for blogging. This sucks big time.

    Quite well said, erickuns! That’s it! After we were used by wp as lab rats with the beep-boop-update (new creepy editor) 2 years ago….

    Old editor via wp-admin still works fine for me.

    But i’m wondering how much time left, until they steal us the option of the old wp-admin-way…

    Thanx all u members for support in this case, but sadly – from years of experience with wp – i bet they wont do anything about it…

    I also wondering how much time left until automatic inc. get sold to alphabet inc….

    as time keeps running, i guess in around 5 years i will be totally out of internet, because the big companies totally mush it up… following this sadly process for years now…

    Keep having as much fun u can get in the new world order…

    The old “classic” editor is still working.

    I got it to work again after reinstalling Greasemonkey.

    I would really love it if WP brought back the old and classic stats. For one, it loads much faster on my laptop (and I bought my laptop a couple of years ago, so it’s not like it’s an old machine wheezing away). With the classic stats, I liked how we could view our stats across the entire screen and everything doesn’t look crammed.

    I’m also having trouble finding the total views for each of my posts.

    This is also the same reason why I am disappointed about the notifications page apparently disappearing for good. As the others have said, it can be hard to keep up with notifications via the bell icon on the top right – and it is frustratingly hard to read lengthy comments this way.

    And also agree on missing out on notifications and making it hard on connecting with other bloggers.

    I hope WP does not take away the Dashboard away. It is one thing about WP which made me choose it as a blogging platform:

    – a list of tabs on the left that makes it easy to navigate around
    – big wide-screen classic editor
    – quick to load

    @themabelkwong I totally agree with you. I feel the same way. WordPress is making changes that are making my experiences less than impressive.

    Same here. The old stats page was what I depended on for all kinds of data. The new version is hard to use, hard to read, and is missing much needed info. Be sure to see these threads on this same topic, too:

    The old stats were much better – more useful, clearer, easier to understand. :(

    Hi folks, thanks for your patience here. @pegodaaj is right; there are multiple threads on this topic.

    We’re working through them all, but in the meantime if anyone has further comments with specific feedback, can you add it to this one master thread?
