I’m shopping around for WordPress plugins now. I may write something myself, if I can’t find anything else out there.
Here’s something I didn’t know about WordPress. Even if you comment Anonymously, I get to see the IP address of the comenter, even though that isn’t displayed on the blog.
So far, Google Analytics is showing ZERO visitors. I know that isn’t right, because I can look at the Apache logs, and there were some non-spam comments (all by the same IP).
I’m looking for a decent Analytics tool. My requirements are *NO THIRD-PARTY CODE*. If the plugin requires an image or cookie or script from a 3rd party, then I’m not doing it. Google Analytics violates that rule. I’m putting up Google Analytics temporarily. I want to compare it to results from other methods.
I may just parse the Apache logfile myself.
I’m also looking for something that will display the archive like Blogger did. The default WordPress archive lists are lousy.
I’m looking for other generic stuff. I’d like to have an auto-generated “Best of FSK” list, but I may write custom PHP for that.
