I’ve updated the Feed Statistics plugin for WordPress again, this time to stop it from counting bots as users. If you’ve been running the plugin already, it will take a few days for the bots already counted as users to filter out. So your subscriber count may drop a little, but on the plus side, the plugin will now count subscribers represented by Yahoo!’s FeedSeeker bot, which reports its subscriber count in a slightly different format than other feedbots.
There are also a few small performance upgrades in this version (1.0.2), but I haven’t been able to duplicate the “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error” error some users have been seeing. If you get this error when activating the plugin, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can figure it out together.
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.
