New WordPress Stats Insights Are Nice, but…

I like the new Insights part for the WordPress stats page. It shows which day of the week you’re most active, and what time of day you get the most views. That’s quite helpful. It also finally shows you the total stats, not just daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly. I can finally see the total number of views.

But you know what? There’s something missing.  There’s one thing from the old stats page that I want back, and that’s the tables with the averages.  You know, you can see the average number of views you received for each month, and it’s in a nice table that shows you the progression of the numbers. Extremely useful for me.  But it’s nowhere in the new stats. They had a link to the old stats page up until yesterday, but now that’s gone.  Well, if you want to see the tables I’m talking about, you can go here. And this is the old stats page, in case you can’t find it.

And while I’m at it, I’d like to mention notifications.  In the top right corner, WordPress users can see the notifications. They’re neatly organised now, and they finally added something I’ve been wanting them to do for such a long time, I always used the old notifications page. Now it shows you what you’ve replied to. Up until recently, I saw nothing like that.  Nice to see it’s in the new notifications now.

So, WordPress bloggers, what do you think of the new stats page?
