My Visitor Statistics Plugin is now ready for distribution. It provides complete website visitor reporting and tracking.

Features:

  • On each page access it records: userid, username, user_agent, IP, host, browser type, computing platform, date and time, page viewed, referer, request type, and query_string.
  • You can drill through all the report pages until you get to the individual accesses behind the statistics.
  • Nearly all summary numbers are click-able.
  • All URLs are click-able.
  • Whenever a story, comment, or static page is displayed the title is displayed not the URL.
  • These titles are click-able so that you can go directly to them.
  • You trace every click of each of your visitors and their path through the website.
  • You can associate users to IPs.
  • The privilege system allows you to open up the statistics viewer to some or all of your users.
  • You can open up non-sensitive portions of the statistics to anonymous users.
Because of the nature and volume of information collected, I must insist that you notify your visitors that you are collecting this information. To this end a default privacy policy is installed and added to the menu system. I would encourage you to review this policy and adapt it to your site.

There are two ommissions from the statistics package that I have not included and do not intend to add. This is an oportunity for some else to extend this package.

  1. A Visitor stats block would be easy to craft -- all the information is there
  2. I did not add graphs, because of the problem of standardization
If anyone wants to provide these addons I will distribute them with my package.

stats_1.0_1.3.6.tar.gz is available from my website The Pigstye.

Enjoy

Tom

Visit my website and you can see the anonymous stats available. That will give you an idea. Tom

Because of some issues that Danny at Squatty.com pointed out with the way I handled anonymous users I have revised the capture function in my stats plugin. (It caused problems with some Blocks and other addons.) You can find the revised functions.inc that contains this function here.

I always love the brave souls who are the first adopters.

I found a problem with my stats plugin. There was a variable collision that caused problems if you used the block editor. You can find the corrected functions.inc that contains the fix here.
