WordPress WP-ShortStat plugin issues

Some time ago my blog stats stopped updating. I was using Jeff Minard’s WP-ShortStat plugin that was based on ShortStat by Shaun Inman. I did a little digging at the time and ran some MySQL DB maintenance as I was convinced I’d reached some sort of limitation in my hosted environment. This didn’t help and I let the matter drop as I was busy with other commitments. 

It now seems like this is a known issue that began when I upgraded to WordPress 2.02. Luckily Markus Kämmerer has continued development of the WP-ShortStat plugin, adding new features as well as fixing the bug. You can get the updated plugin at Installation is a breeze and my stats are updating once again.


  1. Nice one. Same thing happened to me but I’ve been too lazy to look into it!

  2. I’m using wordpress 2.6.1, and I tried the wp-shortstat2, but It doesn’t work. I wonder if it has something to do with the misc folder given inside the zip files. I didn’t upload it….should I?
