We are pleased to announce the release of the new Simple Stats! We’d like to take an opportunity to extend a special thanks to all those who beta tested and tried out the release candidate!
What is Simple Stats?
Simple Stats is a simple to install and easy to use statistics package for JW’s FLV player. It originally started as a simple Ruby script and has since evolved into a high quality professional package that is much, much faster through the use of aggressive caching and smarter code.
You can view a live demo of Simple Stats that is using a log file with 100,000 entries at:
Please note that currently Simple Stats works ONLY for videos hosted on the same domain as the Simple Stats scripts (i.e. not embedded on other domains) because of browser restrictions (cross-site request restrinctions to prevent malicious attacks). It is possible to setup proxy logger scripts on other domains to which you embed but this is not included in Simple Stats at this time.
Extract the contents of the zip or compressed tar archive to your server and allow the web server write access to the extracted directory and its contents. Then navigate to the extracted directory in a web browser and follow the instructions.
A lot of hard work has gone into Simple Stats. It is free for non-commercial use, however if you find this software useful please do consider a donation!
For information about commercial licensing please see the licensing page.
Which browser are you using? I logged out and I see just black and white…
As for security I would have to ask which things you are asking about. In regards to security issues the main one right now would be the config.xml file needing to be writable. If you are concerned with the flash player settings being “public” there is nothing there that could not be found by looking at the source code once the plugin has generated the video player code if that is what you mean. I am looking into other solutions to that. When simple stats is brought into the video plugin the code that generates the stats will be inside the wordpress admin so only admins will be able to make the call to generate the stats. The logs folder will be supplied with a .htaccess to deny people from listing or getting the files and if you are not using apache then you should know how to set up a similar control on your web server. Thanks for the feedback!
First off, change the text color or the background for the Name Mail fields in your comments section …white on yellow is hard to deal with.
Now the Video plugin does look really good, I will have to test it out … is security done through the word press page security controls?
Keep up the good work ..we need a good content widget!
