Summary Tables for stats

  1. leannewhatever

    This is an interesting discussion. My husband says what do you expect when it is free. Recently I"ve been thinking that I get so much from my blog, I should pay, and have considered paying the money for custom design, but if I start paying, then I would get really annoyed with these changes, so perhaps it isn't worth paying for it, if I am not given notice about changes, or are given no options to put in my two cents worth, not having the summary makes the stats almost worthless. I think many of us are saying we want easier access to them.

  2. If they remove the summary tables is very bad and they will become less competitive respect other platforms since you cannot use Google analytic or anything else. So I hope that it is just a bit of a problem or they may move the link in another part of the website.. hopefully.

  3. I have 3 blogs accessed via the same dashboard, and the stat table link posted by minitermquito only shows the table for the main blog. I can't access the stat tables for the other two blogs. Any pointers?

  4. kikiorleans -- there is a drop down menu above the tables. You can choose which blog stats you want to look at from there.

  5. I tried that, minitermquito, before posting here but it just takes me back to the graph overview, not the table statistics of the respective blog.

  6. My summary tables are gone, too - I want them back!

  7. kikiorleans, if you go to any blog's dashboard and click on "Site stats" in the left-hand column, you'll get the old-style stats page, which still has the link to the summary tables (right-hand side above the graph). Not ideal, but at least you'll find the info....

  8. I understand that this is a free blogging platform, (although some of us, including me, do pay for certain upgrades) and that WordPress can tweak as it wants. However, I would still like to hear from Staff what their reasoning is, if in fact, it is an intentional change and not a massive glitch.

    In general, major changes tend to be controversial. Some people like them, some people don't and some have no opinion, and WordPress or any entity in question has its reasons why the parties responsible believe a change is an improvement. But in this case, it's difficult to anticipate what a possible advantage to making it harder for bloggers to access their stats would be. It's possible that some bloggers don't particularly care, but in that case, they don't have to look. Stats are not relevant for my private, personal blog. But for public blogs that serve a broader purpose, we need to have the option to know as much information as is available that can help us respond to the interests and needs of our readers.

  9. This isn't working. I tried the manual link and it only works for one of my blogs. I have 3. And the one it does work for I don't use. Why can't we just get the link button back? Seems like we all use it every day. It this a bug they will soon fix?

    Thanks. is the blog I'm having trouble with.

  10. Just in case anyone failed to read the first page of this thread:

    The link is gone from the bar graph to summary tables, but manually can be reached at:!/my-stats/?view=table

  11. Yeah, I read all the pages and posts. In case anyone didn't read my post, the manual one is no good. Only works for one blog, and you have to bookmark it separately. That's a bit archaic. I'm not trying to be rude, but it's a button. Something WordPressers appreciate and use several times every day. Why can't it just be put back?

  12. I love the summary stats page. I do hope the link comes back to the bar chart. I miss it already even if I know how to get to the page manually; hit is much easier to have the link on the page.

  13. Please bring it back - it is essential.

  14. Changes still appearing, but not for the better as far as I can see.

  15. Let me add myself to the list of people who liked the stats summaries link where it was. I can certainly do without it for a week or so if some new overhaul is in progress, but I very much like its calculation of daily average hits over various time scales, so easily accessed. Thanks!

    Don't you just love the way so many people are so unhappy with the change, and what are we hearing from WP staff, NOTHING, as usual. It would be great if they listened to us.

    Or even someone could say whether it is a glitch, or a real chance.

    Someone please tell us.

  17. So it is still there - great , but a bit tricky to get too don't you think? It's like some 10 year old has made the coding changes!

  18. I agree that it is a free platform but WP needs input to generate advertising revenues so it should at least consider its contributors!

  19. @apetcher
    Very well said

  20. I love that response:
    "If you don't like it go somewhere else"
    I am going to nominate you guys for a top customer services award!

  21. Who said that

  22. This is just silly. I can reach the summary tables by going through the Dashboard and Site Stats, and there's a Summaries link to them above the graph. But there's no similar link from the page. If the tables exist, why not link to them from there as well?

  23. Not much to add except adding another request to have the stat table link be added back to the UI. And to thank you for posting the link here.

  24. same here, no stats for the weekly average....

  25. Sorry folks. I just saw this thread.

    Don't worry, we're not taking away the summaries view. This was a bug. If you refresh, you should see the Summaries link in the upper right corner of the chart.

    Please let me know if you do not.

  26. leannewhatever

    Thank you so much, so glad it is back.

  27. @jblz Yes-- thank's. Happy it's back.

  28. Thanks! I like the new visitors stats too.

  29. @jblz
    Thanks for exterminating the bug.
