wp-visitors plugin and WordPress 2.7

wp-visitors plugin and WordPress 2.7

The story of WordPress 2.7, Brain Dump, the wp-visitors plugin, and Incompatibility Woes.

I had just upgraded my blog to WordPress 2.7 and was still getting used to the new admin interface when something caught my eye.
WordPress Interface
The WordPress Plugin Releases for 12/11!
I visited the page to find a very interesting plugin wp-visitors.

wp-visitors records information about every visitor (page load). Requested URL, Referring URL, IP address, Hostname and Browser along with Date/Time are recorded and displayed in a tabular fashion.

WordPress – Plugin To Keep Track Of Visitors

I understand there are very many plugins available for WordPress that help keep track of a variety of stats. This one, wp-visitors, is simple and light-weight. Myself and couple friends (Adam & Karen and Tim Obermann) have been using it without any trouble – in some form or the other – for over a year now. I am sure this plugin will see further updates – a few bells and whistles (geographical resolution of IP address), etc. As with all WordPress hosted plugins, this too is released under GPL. So, if you like it and like to make it better, please be my guest :)

Who wouldn’t want a WordPress plug-in that would do all that?

I had one little major problem… when the wp-visitor plugin was activated I lost the entire admin section including the RSS feed from the Search Engine Optimizician. I couldn’t even log-in to the admin area, all that happened was I got stuck in an endless loop of blank pages.

There was an easy fix. All I had to do was log into my server and remove the wp-visitor folder from the plug-ins folder. Once this little bugger was removed like magic everything was restored back to its original glory. Well almost. I did get this nagging little message.

Once I reloaded the page the message did disappear.

I don’t know which one of my numerous plugins the wp-visitor was incompatible with and I don’t think I will take the time to turn off each one to try to find out.

Last words, WordPress 2.7 has forced me to use the browser image uploader for the first time. In the past the flash uploader worked just fine and I never had any reason the use the browser version.

Late,
Gary Pool
