The Sweet Plugin: Blog Metrics


The second episode of The Sweet Plugin is posted just below the jump. Today we’re looking at Blog Metrics, a plugin developed by Joost de Valk.

Blog Metrics is a plugin that provides statistics, within your WordPress Dashboard, regarding which of your blog’s authors are posting the most and generating the most discussion.

Blog Metrics

Blog Metrics is a plugin developed by Joost de Valk that adds a screen to your WordPress Dashboard that provides stats on what each of your authors are contributing to your blog. It is likely best used as a just-for-fun plugin on multi-author blogs. Turn it on when you want to see the stats, poke fun at your co-authors, and find out who is generating the most conversations on the blog overall.

Granted, this plugin hasn’t been updated for a couple of years. But for what it does, it still works. As far as I can tell this plugin’s age shouldn’t keep anyone from checking it out.

Do you use Blog Metrics, or something like it to measure post statistics on your blog?

If you would like to see your plugin featured on an episode of The Sweet Plugin, send your plugin information over to [email protected]. We’ll see you tomorrow for another Sweet Plugin!

Video recorded with version 1.2.6 of Blog Metrics, running WordPress 3.1.3.

  1. hum, the first daily plugin was a plugin of yours that does nothing substancial. But okay, it was the first edition and it’s fair. The second video and we’re here with a plugin not updated in more than 2 years, although you mentioned that it is still working and all but who knows if there’s any outdated code with some security issues to consider, even being an a joost plugin – but we’re talking about an wpcandy recomendation so i’m sure it’s “that time” that’s safe to ignore all the constant warnings to watch out the installation of nonupdated in a long time plugins.

    But my point is that maybe you could show some good plugins at start and then as times goes let the more funny or non updated plugins for later? I don’t know, it’s just my opinion that maybe these video series deserves to have a better start.

    Anyway, it’s just my 2 cents, hope you don’t mind. Keep the good work, i love wpcandy xD

  2. It will be great if you could review some premium plugins which can help us decide whether to buy it or not. Thanks.
