Visitor count summery is off
On the new stats page – when the show stats by week is selected the far left bar is way messed up – Week 12, 1 visitor 1303 page views – see the screen shot – the left bar has some other problems but one problem per Post
The blog I need help with is captnmike.com.
Hi, thanks for reporting that! I’m seeing the same things on the stats page for several other blogs, so it definitely looks like a glitch. I’ve reported it to our team to take a look.
What were the other problems you saw with that left bar? I can check to see if we can fix them up at the same time.
This issue should be fixed now. Let me know if there’s anything else we should take a look at! :)
I will go ahead and cover the other things I noticed about the Stats with the supporting screen shots just in case
Mar 2011 shows 214 PV on graph with actual 2670 at 7:30 pm – PDT
Note the 32 Graph bars showning
April 2011 shows 3,300 Graph with 3,300 actual at 8:16 am PDT
Note the 31 Graph bars showing
An observation about the number of Graph bars showing
31 Months (OK)
32 Months – when shown – not so OK
I can’t check the “feature” until tonight – Because the count “feature” seems to be time dependent – left bar count for Weeks (I think the weeks were off also) & Months stop working at about 0000 GMT / UTC but start showing the correct counts at 0000 local (Pacific Daylight time)
So I will take a look later today, also warn the developers that there seemed to be a time sensitive part of it, since they said “fixed” with no details I will need to wait to double check – since to get the correct look all then needed to do was wait until this morning when the count would automatically revert to normal anyway –
Sorry for the two step process but I wanted to have the supporting screen shots and such all lined up, when I did software I always liked more info even the odd strange things nobody else seemed to care about :) made my life easier
thanks for the quick fix –
Still a few undocumented “features” – Week 11, 2013 – 300 Page Views – 1 Visitor – 32 Months displayed
Oct 18, 5:03 PM – Pacific Daylight time – 0103 GMT / UTC
Good luck to the team
Remember – there are no bug, only undocumented features
Thanks for the detailed reports and screenshots! That’s an interesting “feature,” indeed. :) I asked our team to look into this.
You be welcome
How is the team doing on this? I still see the left bar with funny numbers after midnight UTC and returning to normal after midnight local time –
If I keep this up, I best maybe not show up at one of the meetup things for my safety :)
So sorry, I missed your last message in this thread! Our team hasn’t been able to reproduce the time-dependent part of this bug yet, but I’m following up with them to see if there’s any additional details that might help them track it down. :)
I was looking at the short count left bar last night and was wondering how the team was doing or if they had given up :)
I used to do industrial software acceptance testing, entire companies lived in terror of my testing – One time – a company had a half in thick test script (small system test) – four people spent a full week testing the test and triple checking EVERYTHING – took me less than a half hour to break the system (and I was still in the test script) – handed the test script back to their team and told them to call me when they had something worth testing – in the end had a nice system that ran well
Good luck to your team & a Happy Holiday & safe and happy new year

I do contracted work and I can’t discuss what I do but … that made me SNORT and LOL :D
@auxclass – We think we found the bug (finally!) that caused that time-dependent issue in your stats. :) When you get a chance, can you take a look and see if it’s fixed for you?
As noted it is time dependent so not yet the witching hour :)
Yes I will look later today after the witching hour
Close but no cigar as they used to say. The weeks look correct but Aug 2011 is the left bar @71 views, The actual count is 2,755 page views.
So you are half way there :)
