    Hi all,

    I manage a company blog where we have several different authors. Keeping statistics, I’ve always tracked who is getting read the most.

    On the main stats page, I could scroll down towards the bottom and on the left column there was a section that gave me a list of all the authors and how many views they each have had cumulatively. It’s now gone, I can’t find it.

    This was a great tool and so much easier than muddling through the Top Posts numbers and adding things up.

    Where is it at and why is it gone — or what am I missing?
    thanks for any feedback!

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

    If you can’t view the Top Authors stats here http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/ then can you view them here? http://optimagraphicsblog.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats

    If neither page displays them for you please tell us:
    (1) how you are connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com.

    The way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers. Also note that the main dashboard isn’t designed to work with touch devices through the tablet and smartphone browsers.

    (2) exactly which browser and version of it are you using. If you don’t know click here to find out > http://whatsmyuseragent.com/

    Top Authors – yeah, that’s it! Ok, this is weird. I can see it via both of your links.

    Once I used those links, I reloaded the stats page I still had sitting open in another tab and then it finally showed up.

    Makes no sense to me why it wasn’t there today; it always is.
    thanks!

    Hmmm … I don’t know why you experienced that. I’m glad the links now work for you. Happy blogging!

    Hello again. Same problem as last month. “Top Authors” does not show. Last month, that second link you gave me worked, now that won’t even get it to show. Very frustrating. I’ve never had this problem before, just makes no sense. :(

    and is there a way to look up my past posts on here?? I knew I had created this and knew to search for “author” but I could not find it and had to manually go thru page by page until it showed up. just spent over 1/2 hour finding this post. :( :(
