At first, I was wondering why my stats weren’t changing after 1 day, I still had the same stats. Checked my Blogflux Mapstats and saw that there were several new hits. I knew something was wrong with the plugin, but I didn’t know what. I checked my databases using phpMyAdmin, there was nothing wrong with my tables. Next thing I did was to deactivate the plugin, drop the tables used by the plugin and then reactivate the plugin. This didn’t fix the problem.
I thought of doing a Google search using the keywords “shortstat not working” and found a thread in the WordPress support page. I saw one fix posted by one user and tried it but it still didn’t fix the problem. Then one post gave a url to one blog and I followed the link and ended up in a German blog. Hehe. I didn’t understand a thing but I saw that it had a link that had shortstat in it, so I clicked on it and found myself in an English page. In that entry, it had a download link to an edited version of Shortstat. I downloaded the file, uploaded to my plugins folder, activated it and it worked! Thank goodness!
You can download the updated version of the ShortStat plugin here.
Extra: I added a Live Preview for the comments and I’ve activated the Tiger Admin 2.0 plugin again which works nicely with WordPress 2.0.1
