  1. Hi, nice work for this pluggin! :) But i got a little problem… I want to ‘create a page’ from the dashboard that will show the stats on it. But the problem is that it doesnt process the php tag code on the textarea to write the page. I must put the tags on the sidebar for them to work..

    Sorry for my english :)

    thx and ciao!

    After you have created a page, open your WP Admin and click on "Presentation". Then, under Presentation, click on "Theme Editor". Once inside the Theme Editor, locate your new page in the list of files on the right. Finally, add the BlogStats PCC function call(s) to the location of your choice. Don’t forget to click the "Update File" button to save your changes. After that, check your page, everything should be working fine.

    Let us know how it goes!

  3. Thx, it was my mistake.. It work fine :)

  4. Mmmh sorry but my pages doesnt appear on my files list to edit on the theme editor, any ideas?

  5. Jeff Starr

    You need to create a page before it will appear in the list. In this case, creating a page requires a custom page template. Only pages with custom templates will appear in the theme editor. Check out (about halfway down on the page: "Page Templates") for more information about creating custom page templates. Once you have the custom page template in place, the steps outlined in my previous comment should apply.
    Good luck!

  6. Counting posts in categories is fine. But I have posts that can belong to several categories. I have a small routine (using an array) which selects posts that are – for example – both in category A and category B. What I would like is to display the number of posts that are displayed by this selection. May your plugin be adapted to this? Thanks for your wisdom!

  7. Jeff Starr

    That definitely sounds possible..
    Email the code you are using along with any pertinent information and we will look into it..

  8. Why DOESN’T it work? I did everything like’s written and it doesn’t. What’s up?

  9. Jeff Starr

    Did you get it working? I checked your site and it appears to be displaying statistics in the sidebar..

  10. It’s different statistics. But nevermind. I decided to use different plugin.

    I have a question. The “guests” (unregistered users”) are the number of visitors at a given moment? In real time?
    Thanks! Great plug in.

    The number of "Guests" reflects the number of users that have registered as a subscriber/member for your blog, not the number of visitors currently visiting your site.
