and does it well. Seems to be working well in 1.5 for me at the mo.
As for complaining about a couple of ads. They're backend for a start and don't get in the way in the slightest. I have absolutely no problem with that at all.
One of the best extensions for joomla about!
1. Even when the icon is hidden it still takes space (in IE, not in FF) and I don't have any in my design.
2. The google ads are projected in an iframe comming from codegravity. I think this is right on the edge of acceptable. The corporate clients I work with are not happy with google ads in their admin.
The professionalism I hope to show my clients is under pressure with these two points. I wish the developers would have given people a choice in these matters.
But as I havent found another good stats component I am almost forced to use this one.
Hats off to the author! :)
Installed and working fine right out of the box on J!1.5.2. Kudos to the developer.
Very nice admin backend graphics and layout which enables good insight in several stats within seconds, precise robots tracking, do not slow down page load like Google analytics.
If in future it will have information from which pages visitors are coming, it would be definitely in top 3 joomla stats all the time.
Remember to purge database weekly if you have lot's of visitors or switch to a Dedicated web host. Do not blame the component.
Hi, you can use JOOMLAWATCH_STATS_KEEP_DAYS setting for that.
Unfortunatly, I wasn't!!
It installed fine with on problems and I did make sure that Legacy was enabled before the install. As I said, it installed fine and then I went to configure the module and BOOM... "big blank white screen". Loaded the frontpage of the website BOOM.. "Big blank white screen"
Disabled the module and the website came back up then I uninstalled it!
I'll keep checking back for a stable version. Looks like a great product in the Demo.
Hi, I'm really sorry, what happened. Many registered users downloaded 1.2.4 and no-one complained about anything, so I announced it here. One user unfortunatelly asked me to change the retrieving of the live site with &cmsInstance('CMSCore') which worked for him, but not the rest of the users.
Have installed on two configuration, one worked very well, the second installation has crashed the site and I had to remove it straight after.
So use it with caution, if you have a blank page at the end of the installation process, that means you'll maybe have the same issue as I had when installing the module. I installed it on the home page and every other module just did not show - left or right column was the same.
Both configurations were 1.x
Maybe the creator of the component has got more info to add in here.
Hi, thank you. Yes, you are right, some installations might crash, but mostly because the user didn't meet the requirements. They have to have at least 20MB of free space because of the big database table for ip->country resolving or permissions. And many systems are very specific, so it's hard for me to find out why did it crash. If such a situation occurs, I will appreciate a bug report or a solution. 18.3.2008 I replaced the JoomlaWatch-1.2.4-unzipfirst.zip with the one with some minor fixes, so you may try to re-download the way you did and re-install. Thanks to the whole Joomla community and many user suggestions that helped to make this component better with every version.
I immediately identified the harmful bots and could easily block their whole ip range.
I will see if it completely stop them. If it does, this will be one of the best components.
I tried it on one and immediately implemented it on my other sites.
