Has there been some sort of change with the stats feature in the last three or four weeks or so? While my stats have suddenly dropped, what concerns me more is that practically all of the referrers have disappeared. There’s usually at least 15 or 20 different referrers, but it’s been only two (the same two) for the last few weeks. And certain referrers that always appear, like Twitter and Facebook, haven’t displayed in weeks but I know for sure there were visits from them. I did notice a few weeks ago that new widgets showed up on my site that I hadn’t added, so I thought perhaps maybe something new may have impacted the stats as well??
@writerguy18, if you upgraded to 2.8.2, you are in the wrong forum and need to head over to http://wordpress.ORG/support/ as that blog is self-hosted and self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG are supported there.
