There is a plugin for s9y that offers statistics, just install it using spartacus (another s9y event plugin), alternatively you could use one of the free services that just require some html code on your page. Google analytics would be the best that I've tried but other users might have other suggestions. If ou want to use on of these then just add an html nugget sidebar plugin and paste the code into the textarea. Then make sure you select "no" on the radio box below it so that the html isn't converted to text.

Why not use any third party traching software?

I use Google Analytics. Register for free and put the three or four lines of code to the index.tpl template file.

E.g.

Code: Select all

...
<p><script src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  _uacct = "YOUR-GOOGLE-ID";
  urchinTracker();
</script>
</p>

{if $is_embedded != true}
</body>
</html>
{/if}

I'm using phpTrafficA (http://soft.zoneo.net/phpTrafficA/) which is really nice I think and you can run it on your own server (what means you don't have to load anything from another host than yours). Here are some screenshots.... (http://soft.zoneo.net/phpTrafficA/screenshots.php?).

Greets,

I second Google Analytics at https://www.google.com/analytics/home/

Been using it for a week and has a wealth of info. Can even look at what part of the world on a map your users are coming from.

I must too that Google Analytics is the only solution if you want to be able to check your traffic from anywhere for free.

I use Mint (www.haveamint.com). You run it on your server, and there are several plugins to implement pretty much whatever you want. If you have a Mac, you can put a Mint widget on your dashboard. It's shareware, but it's not expensive (a one-time $30 fee). I've been using it for a year, and IMO it's pretty dern nifty!
