We’ve just released two improvements that will make WordPress.com even more efficient for you, leaving you more time to create content.
If you get a lot of traffic to your blog, your stats were sometimes slow to load. We know you like to look at your stats often, think about how all those seconds added up. Now, your main stats page loads all of its data in parallel:
This loads your whole stats page two to three times faster, which means less time spent staring at a spinner and more time for interacting with your readers and creating content.
We’ve made your Toolbar Notifications faster to interact with also. Now you can navigate the Notifications menu from your keyboard.
- n : Open/Close the notifications menu (make sure you aren’t currently typing in a text box first).
- j / k (or up and down arrows) : Navigate through your notifications
- r : Start replying to a comment notification.
- a : Approve/Unapprove a comment.
- s : Mark as Spam/Unspam a comment.
- t : Trash/Untrash a comment.
If you’re logged in, hit n now and try it out.
omg It really works! (kinda skeptical huh?)
Great update! Thanks for making WordPress better and better!
Thanks for so much for these two improvements. I did not have a slow stats loading page issue but know others did have that issue. The Toolbar Notifications shortcuts are going to be very useful timesavers that I will be using lots.
Anything for more speed. Gread job. Love WordPress. :)
thank you greg!
Really awesome updates and improvement s
As a hardcore vi/vim user, love the j-k up-down and other one letter commands! Thanks! — Aggie
I have a slow connection at home, so any speed improvements are definitely welcome!
Awesome! Makes stats even better.
Love the updates and improvements!
Cool additions! I have noticed in the past that the stats can take a while to load, so this is great! :)
Very good. :)
thanks for the info
This is good news for me as well. About stats. Can you people shate what you consider is good enough for daily traffic.
YAY! Simpler AND faster…an unbeatable combination. Thanks.
LOVE THIS! Thanks WordPress for streamlining and the short cuts. :)
I love the new tabs for stats, notifications, etc. It makes it so easy!
My previous comment
Trying to approve this comment.
The n, j, keys are working. The a for approve is not working.
Now it is working.
Like the ease of it. I’m seeing some issues with images lining up in it, but that could just be because I’m using a machine with IE8 as the browser. It probably is better with IE9 or Chrome.
Another lovely enhancement – thanks team.
Reblogged this on My view on e-World and commented:
WordPress team worked on parallel data download for WordPress.com stats, its great thing to hear. Before it needed 10-20s just to start displaying stats, now its a lot faster.
This fix is also speeding up JetPack stats for WordPress.org sites.
Also for hard core users there are new keyboard Toolbar Notification shortcuts.
Me I do not think much about stats…………but found this interesting anyway……………
Still waiting for bulk uploading of images, after all this time. The one thing that makes WordPress a MASSIVE pain in the ass.
Interestingly enough, I have had traffic to one of my blogs (weinstein365) that isn’t showing up. I just checked and it says I’ve had 4 visits today, yet I’ve had at least a dozen people email me, saying they like my post today. It’s certainly not a burning issue, but seeing as how you’ve sent out an email regarding improvements to ‘stats’, this feels like the right time to bring this up. Thanks.
Thanks! Sure this will add more value.
Thanks for enhancement!
Nope not faster…I guess there is no hope for dial up internet users…always snail’s pace regardless of innovations.
Very nice enhancements. Would be nicer if we can optionally show Page Views count on individual posts via maybe a social sharing button.
You guys are amazing – you just never rest!
Please request your writers to write in English. “Do more faster” is English that even a kindergarten student would be ashamed of.

Thanks for the keyboard short cuts.

This updates are very useful for us. I would like to say thanks for this great job.
Since this update, i cannot access to star from my iphone
You guys rock! Thanks a lotlotlot!! :-)
The ‘Toolbar Notifications’ update is great! Thanks!
Wow, love these features. An additional count-in to the existing round of goodies.
Thanks for updates.
I like the view of new stats..:)

Quicker stats, notification shortcuts, is it Christmas already?
UNIX lives!!! Glad to see it.
coincidental with this change, notifications no longer seem to recognise me as the author and now includes me in the alerts when I make replies to comments – does not happen if I reply from dashboard. Any clues as to why?
Awesome post! Congratulations! :
Ahhh, the site stats was a great improvement! It was painful to wait for it to load. Nice work on improving the speed on that one. I tried the notifications menu and love how it opens right up. Nice work on that one as well! :)
Love that sats page and yes you are right we do like to check our stats. :)
amazing update about trafficking the blogs ..
thanks for updating!!!
It’s not often you see a focus on functionality and performance instead of just aesthetics these days. Great work!
Sounds good to me. I get frustrated waiting for that little wheel to stop spinning. Thanks
that ‘n’ trick was cool – thanks!
A faster way, to a blogger’s delight, is found in efficiently coping, with daily activities.
I belief, the WordPress.com updates, have stepped-up our ways of interaction, on-the-blog, and in achieving the preliminary objectives, of the social platform.
Thanks, for your timely intervention.
The world is into doing everything faster…but does “faster” mean “better”? Something we should all think about!
Works great! Thanks!
Love the shortcut keys… hope it works on my IPad too!
Noticed a problem on the Android app. The stats don’t load half the time or if they do, they take a long time. Maybe you could update the Symbian app. That’s much better than the Android app. Symbian phones are better too. :-) But other than that, this is great news!
This is great news!
That works really well! I wish i had known about the new way of navigation sooner. I like this update.
wordpress going better and better :) love it !
the famous stats: always numbers and a new obsession
that was good
