FeedBurner StandardStats Plugin Update

Lee Odden     Blogging Strategy

FB StandardStats UpdateThe past few days have been great for the FB StandardsStats plugin. Not only have I been in communication with the FeedBurner folks, it also got mentioned on the FeedBurner buzz blog. That gave the plugin some great exposure and uncovered a few bugs. It’s since been updated and re-packaged and FB StandardStats 1.0b is now available.

The biggest update is how the plugin displays the FeedBurner code. It seems that I was showing it not only on blog posts, but also in the feed. This could cause issues and confusion with feeds burned at FeedBurner. So I added a few lines of extra code to ensure that it only adds the StandardStats code in the browser version of posts and not in the feeds.

Other than that, there were a few download issues that could have come from web server issues or other formatting oddities. I think those are all worked out now. 🙂

Ohh and one more, if you get a 404 error when trying to update the FB StandardStats options page, that means that you uploaded the entire directory. The only file that needs to be uploaded is fb_standardstats.php. No folders.

If there are any issues with FB StandardStats 1.0b please share in the comments.

  1. Great plugin! I am just wondering what the button “Update FB Standardstats” on the options page does?

  2. Nevermind my question, stupid me… It saves the FeedBurner Stats ID…

  3. I love it when people solve their own issues. 🙂

    how can i publish the stats only in the article’s page? i don’t wanna the stats in the index!


  5. rafael ziggy – For custom installs, you’d need to go to FeedBurner, get the code and install it manually. The plugin will not be able to install stats in only certain areas. It’s all or none.
