I’ve updated the Feed Statistics WordPress Plugin (now at version 1.3.1) to be more compatible with WordPress 2.3 and to fix some bugs from the previous version’s clickthrough tracking.

Feed Statistics plugin updated again

So, the last update to the Feed Statistics WordPress plugin left a bad taste in the mouths of more than a few people. I admit that it wasn’t my best work. However, I’ve fixed the problems in version 1.2 and have released version 1.3. No new features, but now the features from 1.2 should actually work.

Feed Statistics 1.2: Monitor your most popular feeds

I’ve updated the Feed Statistics plugin for WordPress to version 1.2; this update adds a “Top Feeds” page where you can see what the most popular feeds for your website are (e.g., main feed, category feeds, different feed formats). It shows a list of all of the feed URLs that your subscibers are requesting, and how many people are requesting each feed.

(Note: if you’re already running the plugin, this page will take some time to fully populate.)

This release also includes a fix proposed in the comments section by Nathan Pralle to better detect all of the different ways that feeds are accessed. Thanks Nathan!

To install this plugin:

  • If you installed an earlier version, download the zip file of the latest version here, and overwrite feed-statistics.php in your blog’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  • If you’re downloading it for the first time, just copy it to that directory and activate it from the Plugin administration menu.

More Feed Statistics coming

I’m working on an update to the Feed Statistics plugin for WordPress that will add the following features:

  • The ability to track the number of views for individual posts in the feed
  • Tracking of clickthroughs for links in your posts
  • Better reporting of the feed readers used to access your feed

I’m running this new version on my blog right now to watch for bugs, and I’ll have a release ready in a day or two. Here are some previews of the new features:

Track the popularity of your posts

Track clickthroughs on links in your feed

Any requests for other stats to be tracked in the next version? One feature I’m already planning is allowing the stats for individual posts to be accessed and graphed over time.

Feed Statistics: Now with more statistics

Feed Statistics Plugin Fixed

If you had downloaded the Feed Statistics plugin for WordPress and couldn’t use it because of an error during activation, version 1.0.3 is for you. The “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error” message was being caused by my usage of PHP’s short open tags, which I should have known are not enabled everywhere. Thanks to Veg for the help that led to the fix.

Download the zip file of the newest version here, and overwrite feed-statistics.php in your blog’s wp-content/plugins/ directory if you downloaded an earlier version. If you’re downloading it for the first time, just copy it to that directory and activate it from the Plugin administration menu.
