A slew of new features and code went into the new version (0.3) of the PMetrics WordPress plugin and I hope you’ll try it out and enjoy it!
I’m very excited about it…a little too excited for the consecutive amounts of late-night programming and debugging that went into this release. As always, you can download and find more infomation about this plugin on the plugin website as well as sign up to receive e-mails with PMetrics plugin announcements (beta tests, releases, etc). If you have ideas for features that you, the Performancing Metrics user, might be useful, I’m very open to discussion and ideas. You can private message me or contact me through my blog’s contact form.
Among the new features are:
- Disable tracking for specific user levels
- Integrated with the Metrics API service to get basic visit stats
- Added account authorization functions and options
- HTML/XHTML validated code (thanks to Tom – see this forum thread for details)
- Sidebar widget with integration with WordPress widgets (for instructions, see the plugin FAQ and the widgets howto)
- Visit statistics in blog meta information
- Update check can run itself automatically (option to disable)
Note to WordPress.com users: If you’d like to see the PMetrics plugin become an official widget at WordPress.com, you should e-mail the widget crew and tell them what you think!
