If I buy into the CSS upgrade, will I be able to use either Sitemeter or Statcounter (I understand the issues with Google Analytics, though I do wonder why WP.com can’t find a way to share them, even on a daily or weekly basis of analysis) with java? Or do I need to just bite the bullet and port over to a WP.org blog hosted on my own server?
For what its worth, I like the community that WP.com offers and would be remiss to leave it. Hence my dilemma.. But I am willing to pay for an upgrade for java, if such an upgrade exists in the first place.
You can use Sitemeter at least right now. I’m using it myself, just a button in the blogroll, and it works just fine. They have an HTML only signup for WP.com users.
Yeah… I’m just in a mood where I’d really like to have a better idea of my referring links per visit – where they’re coming and, and for what, and then where they’re going. I understand that I need java for that.
Here’s a followup though. If i were to use wp.com on my own hosting service, I would still not have java, right? I would still have to switch to wp.org for that? I’ve been toying with the idea of switching over to wp.org, but I appreciate the community aspect of wp.com, but more importantly, I don’t want to lose all my indexed links for two weeks or so..
Anyway, thanks again. I’m not one of those disgruntled non-thinking wp.com users. I know why there’s give and take on these things…
You would need to switch to wp.org software.
