Create WordPress Stats Page

GaMerZ has quite a few plugins/hacks/mods for WordPress version 1.5. I’m currently using WordPress 1.5 Stats and you can see it in action here. The stats mod is not a plugin but a stand alone script that you drop into your WordPress root. I wanted the script linked from my list of pages so I created a blank Page and then altered my .htaccess file to redirect the newly created Page of http://www.bloggingpro.com/bloggingpro-stats/ to http://www.bloggingpro.com/wp-stats.php which is the stats script. There may be an easier way to do it but this is all I could think of.

WordPress 1.5 Stats does not display visitor stats but rather your WordPress statistics.

    I hesitate to provide any code for this as .htaccess can really screw up your site. Be sure to back up your .htaccess file before making any changes.

    Create the blank page first and WordPress should automatically update your .htaccess file. Look for the lines in your .htaccess file that refer to the newly created page and change all of these /index.php?pagename=$1&paged=$2 [QSA,L] to /wp-stats.php [QSA,L].
