Post by modules » Thu Nov 30, 2006 12:49 am

Code: Select all

Statistics

There are 0 comments and i can not believe to have this mass of visitors.

Is it a bug?

Hi!

The number of comments is returned by querying the database; so there must be 38 comments in the database whose status is "approved!

Usually also blogcounters and spiders count as visitors, so that number does seem not so far off...?

What does your webalyzer or awstats or similar logfile analyzers say?

Best regards,
Garvin

Hi!

Do you have phpMyAdmin? If yes, can you browser your serendipity_comments table? Maybe you changed the comment-options to only view moderated comments or sth like that, which is why the comments are hidden?

Best regards,
Garvin

not this one, but I made a new entry the last day on blog.defo.info and I am not sure, if the displayed "klicks" are right with over 200 in only a few hours.

A short summary about faked statistics.

Its seems like sometimes statistics are my own and sometimes statistics are from another unknown well visited (supersized?) blog.

Sometimes there is a total of written entries and sometimes not.

Hi Jannis!

Could you execute the SQL of the statistics plugin manually?
