OY, WORDPRESS, I WANT MY STATS PAGE BACK ON MY DASHBOARD

 

My Stats pages (on both blogs) have disappeared, all I get when I click on them are mangled pages but no stats. It’s either a punishment aimed solely at me for calling WordPress a pile of shite and a set of tossers this morning, or they’ve finally done what they’ve been saying for ages they were going to do and moved the Stats to that stupid separate page along with the Freshly Pressed shite and the shitey Readers that don’t work and the fucked-up Topics thing that doesn’t work either.

I don’t understand why they’ve done it. Why move the stats away from the Dashboard? It’s the same as taking the mileometer from a car’s dashboard and putting it in the boot, forcing the driver to get out and walk round the back of the car whenever he wants to see how fast he’s going. IT’S FUCKING STUPID. It’s the stupidest idea the stupid ideas people have had since they had the stupid idea of shagging up the Topics.

I am not amused.

  1. WordPress.com is blocked from my work. My domain was not. I used to be able to get to my stats, not I can’t. Im also annoyed.

  2. I just love it when you rant! And of course, you’re right. Probably some techie guy saying, “hey, wouldn’t it be cool if we…” all of course, without actually checking to see if anyone who actually uses the damn program might think it would cool or, as you’ve said, maybe just a fucking shitey idea. Maybe we can join forces. What, with all your page hits, and my ten’s of … er… tens of page hits, we can strike the fear of … er… well who cares! I just want to hit someone with a spitball – when they’re not looking.

    Rant on dear Dotty.

      • Dear Phil,

        I put a link in my reply to Victor to the post I did at the end of January when I first read about it. They’re a set of fuckers. I’m going to look for another page where I can complain about it.

      • Dear Dotty,

        I honestly think they do crap like this to force more page clicks, pretending to have more traffic.

      • Dear Phil,

        I think you’re right, but all these changes will do is make people go elsewhere.

        I’ve just looked at the comment I made back in January – I told them then it was a stupid idea and so did loads of other people.

  5. I’d say it’s that they did what they said they would. I’ve been saying nasty things about WP for ages.

    • Dear Smak,

      I know, but it’s been so long since they said it I thought they’d come to the conclusion it was a bad idea after the amount of comments they received in opposition to it.

      It’s been a while since I complained about them (before this morning).

    It’s changed for me too and it sucks balls.

    • Dear Fishy,

      I’m sick of the way they don’t listen to what people want – no one wanted the Topics to change either but they went ahead and did it. Yes, WordPress is the best of the blogging places but they’re ruining everything that was good about it. If someone knows of a better blog host, I’m off.

        I got my stats thing back. Did you? My reader is still all messed up and it has me following blogs I’ve unfollowed and not following blogs I want to follow. That has always been screwy.

      • Dear Fishy,

        Are your stats back in your Dashboard or can you only access them from the WordPress page where the Reader and Freshly Pressed tabs are?
        My Reader does the same. I’ve just had to unfollow then re-follow Christine because I wasn’t getting post notifications in my email. Everything used to work fine until they started messing around with it.

  7. Dear Dotty,

    First, make sure that you are logged in — if you aren’t, you’ll go straight to WordPress.com, and get Freshly Pressed, or some other format of blogs you don’t care about. If you are logged in, have you tried the W in the upper left of the screen — you’ll find a drop-down menu, with stats one of the choices.

    I hope this helps!

    Love,

    Judith

    • Dear Judith,

      Thank you. All the links to the stats page take me to the new wordpress.com/my stats page instead of the dottyheadbangerwordpress page they used to be on, so my stats page is totally separate from my Dashboard and the Comments section. It’s rubbish.

  8. You have a great way with words ;-)

    Mine are still on the same page as I have had (I think)

    My other blog is the same. Although that one has had a total of nine views in three months lol. I don’t think it would notice if they moved haha

    Like most places though, it is a case of “it’s not broke, let’s fix till it is broke”

    • Dear Mondrak,

      My other blog is the same as yours – it started off okay but now it echoes. HAALLLOOOOOOO – IS ANYBODY THERE? :-)

      I think all the stats will move in time. It’s annoying.

  9. Dear Dotty,
    The shagging of the Topics page really got to me. As far as the Stats page, I don’t know what to tell ya. :(

  10. Dear Dotty. I have always accessed my (unimpressive) stats by clicking on the graphic display at the top of my blog, and today that still works. However there’s an ominous message on my stats page which says this: ‘Starting soon, your stats page will be on the WordPress.com homepage only.’ I don’t know what this means but I imagine we will all be affected eventually.

    Sometimes I wish you would just say what you mean :0)

    Well I guess when it’s a free blogging site we take the good, the bad and the ugly!!!

    • Dear fpp,

      I know – I just like to moan. But I still think they should listen to what everyone says – they obviously make a lot of money out of the fact that we’ve all chosen them as blog hosts.

  13. Hmmm . . . my stats page (whatever it is called) is still there.

  14. Mine wasn’t working either.

  15. They keep messing with stuff. Instead of ‘go to older posts’, I now have a ‘load more posts’ button. What the hell is that? And everything is super slow now. Arrrggghhh…
