Click a Day Stats Refresh

Have you ever pressed an elevator button more in the hope that it would go faster? A street crossing button?

I do that all the time, even though rationally I know that there is no connection between the two. It’s probably the same part of my brain that sometimes buys a lotto ticket when I fill up my car.

Here on WordPress.com I did the same thing, but on the stats screen. Sometimes there would be a bump in the stats and I was curious to what I owed the good fortune, yet I would click and click and click on the chart and nothing happened.

I like to imagine that a lot of you were also clicking on that chart hoping for something to happen, and that we had some sort of magic machine that could collect all the futile clicks and count them as votes. Luckily though we have a benevolent dictatorship here so there’s no need to vote, and when you click the chart it now does something.

The something it does is take you to a page that shows the stats just for the day you clicked on so you can see your top referrers, posts, clicks, everything you see on the normal page, just expanded.

We also tidied up the spacing on the tables and cleaned up the styling a little bit.

    Hey thats great Matt..tried and loved it. Also loved the way you introduced your post..the internal dialogue that precedes a click..cute.

    I know it sounds as if nothings gonna be enough, no matter what you do.. but I wish the incoming links were updated more often. There are those which I never get to know of since neither does it reflect on pingbacks or the ‘incoming links’ stats.

    Now that is a lot of fun! I never tried clicking on the stats. Thanx Bunches! (Do all of us “A” types double-hit the “crosswalk” button? lol)

    Will it ever be possible to pick a date –backwards, to look up info? My Most Hits ever was December 20, but I missed it, didn’t see what readers were looking at. (Still miss Feed Stats….)

    Matt, it seems you kept a few jolly good secrets (a magician usually, it is said, keeps them under his sleeve) from us during the Greek Bloggers Camp in Ios island, Greece, last June!

    Yesterday the Window Live Writer, today this, a new theme a couple of days before, and the list goes on.

    But, hey, if uou were to reviel them all at once, then maybe wp should move to Patmos island, the Apocalypse’s island! Thank you Matt for all the goodies you and your team delivers to us!

    All the best!
