The developers over at WordPress.com just announced today that they have updated the WordPress.com Stats plugin.
We updated the WordPress.com Stats plugin just a little bit today. Now, instead of redirecting you to dashboard.wordpress.com, the stats are loaded in an iframe on your own blog’s dashboard. You still have to be logged into wordpress.com to see your stats. If your plugin version is 1.0, you should upgrade to 1.1 to see the changes. Just replace the old stats.php file with the new one.
When I first installed and tried this plugin, I didn’t like that it had to redirect to my WordPress.com dashboard just to check my stats, so I uninstalled it. It’s good that this update addresses that issue and gets rid of the redirect although the plugin still requires the user to be logged in to the WordPress.com account. I think I’m gonna give it a try.
Download or upgrade to WordPress.com Stat 1.1 now!
