Re: basic blog stats plugin

Thanks Andrew, but the links on that page give me the same error page. :(

Re: basic blog stats plugin

Andrew: right place, but the download URL still points to the old (defunct) location.

Sekhu: I think the writer of this plugin appears to have switched to WordPress, and so is unlikely to be able to help with maintenance or improvements.

Jennifer: I’ll see if I have a copy of the original anywhere. I’ve probably hacked around with the code too much on my install of the plugin to give you that. :-)

Re: basic blog stats plugin

Well, bummer.

Would someone who has this installed be so kind and email me the text of this plugin? I’ll use it as-is until I learn enough PHP to improve it.

Re: basic blog stats plugin

Woo hoo!

If you wouldn’t mind repackaging it, that would be great.

My thought is, one of us could host it and link to it, for the next person who wants it. If you’d rather not host it, I’d be happy to.

Re: basic blog stats plugin

I wouldn’t mind hosting it in its current state, and what I’ll likely do is take your feature suggestions and redistribute it. What’s it need?

Re: basic blog stats plugin

Oh, that would be so wonderful! :)

The top commenter portion doesn’t work in RC3.

And I think someone else mentioned a “word count” option but I don’t know if that would be outside the scope of this plugin.

And while I’m flinging wish lists at you (I have GOT to learn PHP soon!), I’d love to be able to restrict the count of entries and comments by section.

That’s all. :)

Re: basic blog stats plugin

Andrew: now that would be fantastic.

One of the (arguable) hacks I made on my version of it was to hyperlink to the commenter’s website in the top commenter’s list (remembering to enclose the thing in zem_prblock of course). The problem with this is that it picks up the first URL that your commenter using that name entered – which may have changed. Also, it does not distinguish between commenters with the same name but different email addresses and/or websites. Is there a way to key the commenters off something other than name (e.g., email address, or name + email address)?

Just some thoughts.

Re: basic blog stats plugin

Ok, a reconstructed version of this plugin is now available for download: gbl_blog_stats

This is strictly a resurrection version, so no new features except for fixing the broken top commenter function. I’ll release future versions with new features under a new name (most likely ajw_blog_stats) just so it doesn’t confuse people.
