WordPress Stats Broken?

Posted on October 4, 2010  in Blog Experiences

I’m running a hosted wordpress blog and logged in my admin page this evening (October 4, 2010, 11 PM GMT +8) and I noticed that my WordPress Stats seems to be broken. WordPress Dashboard have this Site Stats tab:

and clicking it will redirect me to a login page for my old wordpress.com blog.

I know this wordpress.com and this WordPress Stats plugin was tightly integrated before and is working smoothly. I did not have similar problems for a long long time (xx number of months) until today. Admins can manually enter their wordpress.com account and choose their blog to get their wordpress stats, but hey that’s a messy process for me (and hopefully most admins will agree too).

I searched the net but top results and it points me to old discussions in wordpress.org support forums with entries and updates dated some 1~2 years ago.

Twitter searches about WordPress Stats Broken seems to yield better results: other wordpress bloggers are tweeting about it so I’m not alone 🙂 Twitter is really more real-time!!!

Funny thing here is I am about to post my Wordcamp Philippines 2010 insights, but I guess I can postpone it for another day and try to research more on how to resolve this issue (will update this post asap).

For wordpress bloggers out there: Is your wordpress stats broken too? Share your experience (and solutions too if you have) by leaving some comments here or contact me via my contact page.

  1. Yep, having the same problem!! Also, when loggin into WordPress.com I cannot seem to correctly surf the account and universal dashboard.
    Hope this is a quick bug that the WP dudes will fix ASAP!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this! I experienced the same issue and was worried whether someone has hacked into my account. I did a BLOG search and found yours. Now I feel better knowing I’m not alone and I’m not going insane.

  3. I’m having the exact same problem right now (on a WordPress 3.01 install with a few plugins). If I remember correctly, it was working yesterday. Cleaning the cookies and/or changing browser don’t seem to be any help.

    Btw this post is currently the second result for “wordpress “site stats” broken” on Google – not so bad for quick indexation 😉
