I installed this as an alternative to NewStatPress, which is no longer being maintained.Thank you for providing such a great plugin.SlimStat Analytics is an excellent plugin that is easy to use and has many functions, but I would like it to be even better if the widget could display page views (yesterday, today), etc.

Nice data and super lightweight on site. Good for seeing clickthru data. I also use Postview. The only downside to the plugin is I run my servers at WP Engine and they still call out the CVE related to 5.0.9 which was shortcode. That was fixed two iterations ago but WPE still considers it unfixed. Getting their engineering team to review it has been a month with no progress. That also says something about the security database at WPE for that matter (ie out of date?).

Thanks for this plugin! I really enjoy using the real-time user data. It also helps to find out about 404 errors/links on the site. You are doing great 🙂

I want a real time stats of active users on various pages of my site. But the real time page simply lists the current users and there is a map showing their location. Also, there are setting for date range??? This page could be configured better. Include setting as to what qualifies a active user (such as entered page within the last 15 minutes). Some information presented is useful. Also, stats regarding performance taxing on server would be good. But as it is, I don’t think I will keep this over GA4.
