post-page Stats Updated

If you’re a user, you may have noticed that your stats received a significant facelift today. The Flash-powered line chart has been replaced by an interactive Javascript-powered bar chart and the module layout is now fully customizable.

The new design was a team effort, though some credit should definitely go to Nick Momrik for handling the new chart and a good majority of the extra work, Joen Asmussen for the overall design, and Matt Thomas for keeping everyone on track.

Currently, the new stats interface is only for users, but the Stats Plugin for self-installed WordPress blogs will be updated once they have all the kinks worked out.

Unfortunately, my blog is private, so I really don’t have enough stats to truly test the new interface. What do you think of the new Stats interface?

    Although the new stats look much better I think the new design lost some of the unique looks of the previous one.
    To better understand what I want to say, we all recognize a clickbank chart. I also used to recognize stats. Not anymore :( maybe in time though

    I’d like to point out, that even if your blog is private, you probably have your self-hosted blog connected to the same account. And so you should be able to use the switcher in the top left corner of your stats page and view your self-hosted stats using new new look.

      Unfortunately, there are no stats to display if don’t already have the Stats plugin installed. :(

    I’ll be glad when they finish it so that those with a install can see it. I don’t like how much RAM flash eats up so any movement away from it I’m glad for.

    I checked it out briefly last night and it looks really slick. I think most everything I can think of in terms of statistical points of reference that I would want are there, so that is good. And the bar graph makes it easy to read. Overall, I like it. Is there anything equivalent for users?

    Is it just me or is it just not possible to dig down into keywords, post views and the other rich data that you used to be able to see in the WP Stats? I can’t even find how to view my month’s most popular post anymore.

    Good to see they are using Flot to take the place of Flash.

    I really like the new stat design – they did one heck of a job :)

    Absolutely love the new look of the stats page. In my opinion, it certainly looks a lot cleaner, and bar graphs never hurt. Extremely easy to read and analyze.
