Google Analytics and Feedburner Reports plugin for WordPress

The WordPress Reports Plugin utilizes information from Google Analytics and from Feedburner and displays the crucial statistics for your blog right in your WordPress “Site Admin” menus. I love it and it’s definitely different information and output compared to the WordPress Stats plugin (plus you don’t need a WordPress.com API).

Features:

  • Provides you with a birds-eye view of what’s going on with your site
  • Retrieves data from Google Analytics and Feedburner
  • Reports are represented visually with graphs
  • Choose the reports you want to view
  • Ability to automatically install the Google Analytics tracking code for you, along with optional outbound link tracking.
  • Includes a WordPress widget to display your most popular content.
  • Automatically check for updates to the plugin
  • Other services coming soon (hopefully)…

Using this information, I can see what is popular in order to focus my content on my visitors, because my posts and this information isn’t just for my benefit.

Update fantversion.php After Manual WordPress Upgrade in a Fantastico Script Installed WordPress Installation

Basically, after manually updating for the past 2 WordPress Updates, I noticed that on my Bluehost Hosting Package whenever I clicked on my WordPress Installations it always had the original version # and asked if I wanted to “Upgrade” to the latest WordPress version. Here’s the easy fix:

  1. In your WordPress Installation Directory find the file “fantversion.php”
  2. Edit it and change the “$version = ‘2.2’” to “$version = ‘2.2.2’”
  3. Upload and the message disappears in the the Fantastico De Luxe menus

Check it out. They basically compressed several pages into one. Looks much better. Kudos.
