Stats

Super simple website statistics, every Rapidweaver can use.

Overview.

You should know which pages on your website are getting attention, and which are not, so you can better adapt to that information. Now with this stack it is easier than ever to have that information at hand. This super simple to deploy stack will have you collecting valuable statistics in minutes.

There is no initial setup to use the stack. It does not use a database. It uses a flat text file (created automatically) to store the data. While your server should be running PHP, there is no need to change your current page extension to PHP. You simply drop in the stack, and you are good to go.

When the stack is in Admin mode, an administrator password is required to access the statistics, keeping them away from prying eyes.

Live demo.

You can see a live example of the stack in action below.

Here we have added an instance of the stats stack in it's admin mode. You would normally place this on a page of it's own, and hide it in your navigation so only you go there to see the stats. But we thought for a demo, that'd probably not be a good idea.

We have scattered a few Stats stacks around the Doobox website in recording mode, to have the stats for those pages show up here in the Stats demo admin. We put a little quick start guide in the FAQ section below. You won't believe how simple this stack is for you to setup.

Mode

When you first add a Stats stack to the page, the settings look like the first image. If you want the stack to record statistics for this page, then you need do nothing more. It's presence in the page is enough. You are done. If you want the stack to be an Stats admin, then read on below.

Mode

So you switched to Administer stats mode and see 2 new options below.

Password

This is the password that will allow you to login to the stats stack you have placed in admin mode.

The password should be alpha numeric (contain only letters a-z and or numbers 0-9, and no spaces.

Disable reset buttons

Once inside the Stats admin you have buttons to reset all or any of the statistics. If you give access to anyone else you may want to disable this option.

Stacks edit mode.

We pay great attention to how we approach the editing interface of every stack, to ensure intuitive ease of use.
