Google Analytics Visits wordpress plugin uses GAPI (Google Analytics Php Interface) to fetch data from your analytics account. The plugin displays user visits from each country in the widget with Country Flags. You will have to enter your analytics account details in the options page “Google Analytics Visits”.

## Features

Various display options:
1. Option to display Country Names or Flags or Both with user-defined number of results.
2. Option to hide header ( Flags Country… ).
3. Option to display – Visits, Total Visits, Pageviews, Total Pageviews with percentages if you choose to hide the actual visits count).
4. Option to display – Total Countries that visited).
5. Flags: Stats with country flags.
6. Cache support: feature to lessen the load on google analytics and in-turn page loading of wordpress page, where the widget is placed, will be faster.
7. Error Handling: Error handling/reporting in case of wrong username/password or Profile ID.

## FAQ

• Is the profile ID the same as tracking ID?
No, watch the following video
• Does it require PHP5?
Yes.
• Why is there nothing displayed in the preview, or the sidebar widget?
• I entered correct username and password, why doesn’t it still show up?
• Why is a country’s Flag isn’t there?
Please report it below in the comments section with the name of the country mentioned and I will add it.
• Does it work with WPMU?
I haven’t tested it and no support is provided for WPMU so far.
• Where do I report a problem?

## Screenshots

Screenshot of Options Page and the Widget Preview:

## Requirements

Google Analytics Visits Requires PHP5 to function.
Requires a WordPress (Version: 2.8.0 or higher) powered website (blog).
A sidebar to place the widget (obviously).
NOTE for WPMU users: I haven’t tested it and no support is provided for WPMU so far.

## Installation

Installing Google Analytics Visits should be a piece of cake and take fewer than five minutes.
2. Extract all files from the zip archive.
3. Copy the linkable-title-html-and-php-widget folder to wp-content/plugins/
4. Activate the Google Analytics Visits plugin through the “Plugins” menu in wordpress.
5. Go to the options page (Settings->Google Analytics Visits)

7. Add the widget to the sidebar and give it a title or choose to leave the title blank.
That’s it!

Tried it and got the following error:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONST, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in …/wp-content/plugins/google-analytics-visits/gapi.class.php on line 29
Does it require PHP 5?

2. PepLamb says:

hi Fahirsch, yes it requires PHP5

3. imah says:

how can I get my profile ID in order to use Google Analytics Visits plugin?

4. PepLamb says:

hi Imah
please read How to use it? section on this page we have put the help with screenshots, do drop in if you still face any problem.

5. Seventh Town says:

Tried your plugin & widget and nothing happens… Literally, there’s nothing displayed in the preview, or the sidebar widget. It is currently active on the site, no title and should be displayed at the bottom. But nothing.

1. PepLamb says:

hi Seventh Town,
will you let me know your WP Version and the Php version?
also which version of “Google Analytics Visits” are you using?
do let me know!

1. Seventh Town says:

WordPress 2.8.6
PHP Version 5.2.11

1. PepLamb says:

did you enter your analytics credentials well?
3). and your profile id of the website?

6. Alex says:

Hi,

I actually was thinking about doing setting this up, but then I noticed you comments. I like the layout. What comments plugin do you use?

Thanks,

Alex

1. PepLamb says:

not any special plugin
hope this helps!

1. Alex says:

Weird. I have that too, but for reason, it won’t allow for nesting. Or the reply button to actually reply.

1. PepLamb says:

7. cyber says:

i just wish to let u know this plugin do crash the sharing plugin such as addthis, addtoany sharing to facebook….

please update… i really love this plugin but it crash with the sharing function for image….

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Cyber,
can you list the plugins that crashed so we can test them?
it works fine here with Sociable plugin

1. Jim says:

Crash with Enhanced WP Contact Form

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Jim,
can you please provide us with the error?
thank you!

8. Josh says:

It’s safe to input the Password?
and by username you refer to the email?

Hey some points need clarification…

1. PepLamb says:

yes its safe to input the password since the gapi uses https for authentication, but as of now the plugin stores the password in the DB as is and not encrypted so your password is safe as long as your DB is safe, if you need it encrypted in the DB let me know i’ll make this available in the next release possibly this weekend, and yes username meaning Google Analytics username mostly email.

9. Jim says:

1. PepLamb says:

hi Jim,

1. Jim says:

I wrongly put username: http://www.mydomain.com and now when I try to add my email gives me this error:
-Uncaught exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘GAPI: Failed to authenticate user. Error: “Error=BadAuthentication “‘ …-

1. PepLamb says:

thanks for reporting Jim its fixed in Version 1.1.3.2

1. Jim says:

Thanks to you! all day trying I don’t want to give up on this nice plugin

10. Josh says:

Wow, it’s the first plugin that I will support by donations… promise!

I just have 2 problems:

– How can I remove the result: ‘Total Countries’ (tried to remove but keeps giving me errors)

– How can I cancel data from a country? Administration logings keep altering real results

Thanks

1. PepLamb says:

Great thanks for supporting Josh!

1). You have an option to remove ‘Total Countries’ in the plugin options page.
2). Right now canceling data from a country is not possible.
3). Sorry i didn’t get you when you said ‘Administration logings keep altering real results’, did you mean you have enabled admin logging too in the analytics plugin? if so please disable admin logging in whatever plugin you are using

you are welcome!

1. Josh says:

Yes, my loggings are making raise the percentage of the country I’m now, and I want to avoid that… it’s possible?

1. PepLamb says:

You must be using some “Google Analytics” Plugin where in its options must be set to log even admin/backend activities you can disable admin logging in that Plugin’s settings page. If you would like to have a feature where you don’t need to depend on some other plugin for Google Analytics code in the front end page i will add it Josh, such that when logged in your activities are not logged

11. ChrisB says:

I cannot get any thing to show, there’s nothing displayed in the preview. I just upgraded to WP 2.9 via the automatic update. I ented my username/password and profile ID that I got from registering with Google. In my status screen it just shows zero for everything. Can you please help.

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Chris! yep im here to help!

lets do it “again” from the beginning.
1). Make sure your Php version is 5
4). check for your Profile ID the way explained in http://peplamb.com/google-analytics-visits/ (How to use it works/Installation)
5). just in case to debug the problem disable the Cache.
after doing these again if it still doen’t work please let me know.

Also I need to know the following
1). Was the plugin “Google Analytics Visits” working before upgrading your wordpress to WP 2.9? did it work on any other versions of WP (if you tried the plugin before) and you mean its not working in WP 2.9?
2). Or did you try the plugin for the first time and the very beginning it didn’t work in WP 2.9?

12. Tudorminator says:

Hi, great plugin, thank you!

I’m currently running version 1.1.3.4 with WP 2.9.1 and I’d like to point out a few small problems I have found, if you don’t mind:

– I have accidentally misspelled the Profile ID on the options page so I was getting the message ”Google Analytics Visits Error: please enter your account details in the options page”, which to me it sounded like an authentication problem, so it took me a few retries before noticing the profile ID. I confess I have no idea what the Analytics API allows you to do, but if at all possible, having a different error message for each field would be more helpful;

– If Display Visits option is set to Yes, the output is something like ”Romania 827 (92)”. Now I understand that the second number is the percentage, but I don’t believe my visitors would get that without the % sign.

– In comment #62 you say ”You have an option to remove ‘Total Countries’ in the plugin options page.” I’m sorry but I have no such option (and I’ve used find on the page, so I’m pretty sure )

Hope this helps. Good work, thank you.

1. Tudorminator says:

Oh, and I forgot to mention that internationalization would be nice, too

1. PepLamb says:

hey Tudorminator, some good points you made will look into these

1. Tudorminator says:

Great, didn’t expect to find you up so late so I was preparing myself for a few hours in the moderation queue

Thanks, looking forward to the next version!

1. PepLamb says:

hey all done except localization/internationalization that will be a bit more work will think of it, but again thats a good idea

13. Tudorminator says:

Thank you, that was really fast!

Updated through WP’s automated mechanism, everything went smoothly and new version is working as expected.

Cheers!

I try several times to put de analytics visits and is not workin ..also i donate ….wht im doing wrong?? Pilar Admin of the website…

1. PepLamb says:

Hi friend, I’m here to help!
what’s the error message you see in the preview? can you let me know?
Please follow “Installation” section (you have the help with screenshots :)) but before that make sure you pass the “Requirements” section.
if you still face any problem please let me know and i will be glad to fix this problem for you
and thanks a lot for the donation

15. Rick says:

Easy Question….

Where is this?…………….

How do I get there?
Thanks

Rick

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Rick, I updated Installation section with a new screenshot in there for (Settings->Google Analytics Visits), once you get to “Settings->Google Analytics Visits” you you’ll find all the options there, hope this helps

16. Pablo Corral says:

Dear Pep, thank you for your great plugin. I want to know what is the number in brackets near the number of visits, and if there is a way to turn that number off… I like to keep things really simple.

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Pablo, glad you like the plugin
the number in the brackets is the percentage of visits/pageviews, right now there is no option to turn that down when you select,
“Display Visits?” as Yes
and
“Display Pageviews?” as Yes
i’ll give the option to turn that off in the next release!

17. Frank Pipolo says:

Real nice Plugin as I tried it on my blog and works nice.

The country flags is a nice touch.

18. Edgar says:

Great Plugin!!
Just one question: Is it possible to define the number of days you want the analytics visits for? E.g. last 30 days Now your plugin takes all visits.

1. PepLamb says:

yep its possible,
i’ll try making this available in the next release

1. Edgar says:

Do you already know when this option will be available? It would make a lot of sense to include this option.
Many thanks!

1. PepLamb says:

hey hi again Edgar,
and oops i missed your request completely, thanks for reminding me again Edgar, i’ll need an other hmmm say a week or 2 to get this done fine? been busy the past few days, anyway you’ll have your request ready in 1 or 2 weeks
Many thinks too for using my plugin!

2. PepLamb says:

hey Edgar,
The option is available now also you can have a custom header too just in case an other tiny feature
anyway hope you like it!

1. Edgar says:

GREAT!! Thanks for adding this feature to the plugin!! Works perfect!
Many thanks!!
Edgar

19. factotum says:

@PepLamb
if “Username” have dot (see my e-mail):

Preview

if my Username without dot -work
thanks

20. factotum says:

and:

Display: Display Flags Country Names Both.

IMO in footer enough info about total visit per month and total Pageviews per month

21. koudou says:

I haven’t understood how installation of the plugin works.

-> I’ve installed it and create a Googles analytics account.
It gives 0 visit and google anlytics account says that the google anlytics code has been put on welcome page and that I have to put this code on all pages !!!!
-> what is the figure of max results ? max days ? max last pages viewed ? visits ? countries ?

I thought this was an easy way to stat WP, but I am feeling that I better user webanalyser; this lack of information is not an encouragement to use this plugin.

22. Lucas Rizzi says:

I tried hundred times, username, password and ID, all are correct, but I´m havinf this message:

What could be the problem ?

Thank you,

Lucas

23. Rikke says:

I can’t get it to work. It says ”
Preview
Google Analytics Vists Alert: please check/recheck/enter your Google Analytics Profile ID” But my Profile ID is correct. I do have to sites under my ID so this one ends with -1. Is that a problem?

1. Rikke says:

Nevermind I just found your installation guide 😉

1. PepLamb says:

great

24. Lucas Rizzi says:

It does not work, I put my username and password and nothing happens

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Lucas,
Sorry for the late reply i have been busy the last week, let me ask you few questions.
2). Does your username have a “.” ( dot ) without quotes? if so this is not going to work. the API doesn’t support the dot right now, google needs to look into their API structure.

1. Lucas Rizzi says:

Thank you PepLamb,

2) No my username does not have a “.”

Thank you to help-me !

1. Lucas Rizzi says:

Just to inform you, I updated to last version, 1.1.3.6, and doens´t work yet, the problem was not solved.

I have the google analycator plugin installed too, there are some plugin conflict with it ?

Thank you for support.

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Lucas,

Let me let you know that this plugin is not broken at all and it will help me if you give me clear details on the problem and the errors you get when you use this plugin, say for example whats the error you find when using this plugin etc lets take some time together to examine this ok?

say for example lets take time a day where you and i can work on the issue you have with your installation and your username and password fine?

this should be the only solution since others aren’t facing the same problem but just you so we can together troubleshoot this problem to get to some fix

Thank you for reporting we will work together on this!

25. Eva says:

Hi!

I have problem getting my Google analytics to work. It just says:

so I wander if the username and password is the same as I have in google? for my gmail for example? if its correct, than what is my profile ID?

Best,
Eva

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Eva,

You will find help with your profile id of the specific website you want stats for in point 6 of my post above with details screenshots
Hope this helps you Eva, let me know if you still find any problem I’m here to help

26. George says:

Very nice plug-in, but it interferes with the WordPress flash and browser image uploaders. They just hang, and I have to close the browser. To upload an image, I have to temporarily deactivate the plug-in. Not a big deal now that I know about it.

1. PepLamb says:

Hi George,
I’ll release a new version of this plugin in a moment (version 1.1.3.8) and I’d like you to test if this issue you mentioned is fixed.
Thanks for reporting it helps making the plugin better

27. Neoshinji says:

I have a three suggestions;

-Storage password to the DB using MD5 Encryption, only for security purposes.
-On the options dashboard, can you add a little sign (green/red) depending on connection stablished, it would be very useful to know if it is the password or ID are correctly written.
-Are you thinking to support multilanguage? If you do, I’m applying to translate a pair of languages (spanish and catalan), my “Poedit” is ready to work ;P

Nice tool! Thanks for your work 😉

1. PepLamb says:

Sure i’ll look into these suggestions in the next release
1). yep i thought on the password security in the DB but the problem is it needs to get back to its original state form MD5 Encryption before it calls the Google API, so will need an MD5 decryption code.
2). not sure what you meant in your second point 😛
3). i’ll need your help with the languages then 😀

1. Neoshinji says:

The first one, as I know you can not use literally MD5, CRC32 or SHA1 because all are made for only to encrypt (one way), then they are methods not reversibles. But maybe you can use the STR_ROT13, it is the only I know that accept reversible, you can combine this method with split of password into two different strings … or something more. I’m very sorry I can not provide a example for this right now, I will have to search and I will post here.

Well regarding to the 2nd point, a picture is worth a thousand words.
It would be only to know if the password or ID are correct.

1. PepLamb says:

Hey hi again Neoshinji!
Point 1 sure its good if the password is protected in the DB i understand i will look for some good encryption method(s)
Point 2 it would be good to have that kind of feature, i do have the reporting section below in the plugin preview if there are authentication errors or Profile ID error, red/green thing makes sense
hope i’ll have them in 1.1.4.1 or 1.1.4.2 release
thanks for the cool ideas Neoshinji

28. yarlung says:

some errors:

Preview

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Yarlung!
Make sure you entered the right “Profile ID”, the one you entered is not a “Profile ID” but “Google Analytics’ UID” so please put the right “Profile ID” to make the plugin work smoothly

29. fitness4you says:

I can’t seem to get this to work…when i go to show enter my profile and password it only shows the profile ID.

1. PepLamb says:

hmmmm what do you see in the preview section? do you see any erry? your password is hidden and you can change it any time the plugin is made that way so you won’t see the password make sure you entered the right profile id, username your gmail and the password with no special characters in it. let me know if this helps if not then lets get in touch and we shoot this problem

30. yo says:

I have a problem with the plugin

1. PepLamb says:

Whats the problem?

31. Matt says:

Hi, I’ve a problem. Under the password form appear this label:

And at the bottom of the page:

I enter my account details, but nothing changed…

1. PepLamb says:

also make sure your username which is your gmail must not contain a “.” (dot) say for example some.thing@gmail.com is not valid since it contains a dot character hope this solves the problem
let me know if you still face any problem, im here to help

1. Arturo says:

I had exactly the same problem. It look like the plugin does not save the password. I write it down but nothing happend. Only when i click save the pass desapear and i got the same message at the bottom:

User and pass are only normal characters.
Is possible this plugin is broken??
I’m ussing WPMU 2.9.2

1. Arturo says:

Also i’ve in the DB that the fields are correct.. Now i get error:
(this after i changed the ua code to check if it was validating google page)
Now the ua code is correct but it seems can’t get.. I don’t see where could be the error.
I’ve got the plugin analytics dashboard and it works fine… (curl enabled)

1. PepLamb says:

I repeat this plugin must be used only with WP not with WPMU thanks

2. PepLamb says:

Hi This plugin isn’t designed for WPMU at all so please do not use it for that it only supports WP and till WP 3.0 and works perfectly with it
Let me know if you have any more Questions Thanks

2. Baldemar says:

So, are you saying that the user cannot have a dot within or the plugin won’t work? So if my username is john.doe@gmail.com won’t work? =/

1. PepLamb says:

yes so far,
but go ahead and test if it works though i tested and it won’t work

32. GARUBA TOYIN says:

pls i need a detailed explanation on how to get the profile id.i understand everythin but i find it difficult to locate the profile id.

1. PepLamb says:

Hey forgive me for the late reply been busy with some stuff over the weekend
you got the profile ID just as mentioned in the screenshot,
drop back here again one more time and go through the detailed explanation on the Installation and you’ll find it

33. fitness4you says:

Hey,

1. PepLamb says:

No the password will not be visible once the password is saved and you will have a notification saying “Password is protected or re-enter password to change!” meaning the password is already saved and protected ( so not visible ) and if you think of changing the password you can do it
Make sure you don’t have special characters in the password, a-z A-Z 0-9 are fine as password characters.
Hope this helps

1. fitness4you says:

It wasn’t working but I changed the settings and now it shows total visits as “0” but I googled my page and had others go on my site and it is still “0”. Does it take a while to it to reflect on how many people visit?

1. fitness4you says:

I also went onto the google analytics page and my status is shown as “Tracking not installed”.

1. PepLamb says:

You must have an analytics plugin installed

34. Arturo says:

the plugin don’t work for me. This is the third message i write down i hope it doesn’t get deleted again.
The plugin do not validate me in google analitics. My WordPress is now 3.0
I get :

I’ve checked in the database and the user and pass is correct. Also the UA code (if the UA format is :UA-XXXXX-X and not any other format) so i guess so i can’t see where is the error.
Peraps the plugin is broken? Could you manage the validation in the same way as Google analycator (it takes you to the google page to validation).
Also other plugins (like google analytics dashboard) works fine. So i guess if i missing something in my server configuration i can’t see it.

1. PepLamb says:

Nope the plugin is not broken at all
Just that it doesn’t support WPMU,
Works fine for me from WP 2.8 to WP 3.0

35. hauli says:

I cant this Plugin install….

any one a idea?

1. hauli says:

Im use WordPress 3.0

and Platinum SEO as only Plugin

my Style is Motion 1.0.7 von Sam @ 85ideas

2. PepLamb says:

please reinstall the plugin im sure you haven’t installed it well or may be the automatic upgrade didn’t work, re-installing the plugin will fix this

36. Catalin Bratu says:

it’s great . i love it

1. PepLamb says:

37. deena says:

I also went onto the google analytics page and my status is shown as “Tracking not installed”.

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Hossein,
yep I’m here to help
it looks like Curl is not supported on your server or atleast you can enable it going to php.ini and just by uncommenting ;extension=php_curl.dll just remove ; (if you have permissions to modify php.ini or please contact the server administrator) thats it and it looks like you have no response when using the fopen php function either will look into this issue and get back to you soon, are you sure the username and password are registered with google? can you user the same username and password and get into your Google Analytics account? let me know…

2. PepLamb says:

Hi Hossein,
if they are are you able to login into your account? and make sure the email doen’t have a dot in it and in your case it doesn’t look it has but i am suspicious about a “-” in your email can you check?

42. Terri says:

Yeah would be nice as an optional feature from preferences page, also, may you tell me how to reduce the fontsize? my widget colum is 400px and with flag+country name + pageview the space is not enough to display all, i shall reduce a little bit
thanks!

46. Simon Ashley says:

I have installed your plugin but when I try to activate it I get:

I have double/trip[led checked my details, which include my username (which I assume is my email address as this is how I sign-in, I have changed my password to see if that works – no it doesnt, any ideas? There’s a coffee in it for you if you can help!

Cheers

47. pascal says:

I installed your plugin on my blog “www.lerbc.fr” but it is unreadable because the text is too light. How can I change color?
Thanks for the help and thanks for your plugin.

1. PepLamb says:

Hi, you have classes defined in the html code all you need to define your CSS to fill the colors you need. if you need a CSS text box right in the plugin i can make it a new feature in it

1. Davide says:

Yes need, because some country name is too long and if, like me, have the column narrow, the number of the visit is pushed out invisible, would be nice to have options in the setting page to change the text colour, font and size, or a character limitation for country name
thanks

48. pascal says:

Thanks for your reply. If I understand, it’s a CSS problem on my theme (skin). I will search in the code …

49. Luis Masyebra says:

Hi there, Good job on this plugin!

I would like to translate into Spanish (or just change) the titles that show on the front-end’s widget:

Total Countries: 4
Total Visits: 212
Total Pageviews: 2503

I tried to edit google-analytics-visits.php and found the place where those literals are, but once I changed them, nothing happened on the Front. Also tried to reboot the plugin but that did not help either.

Any ideas??

50. Luis Masyebra says:

DONE!
I switched the “Display Powered By?” to ON. I guess that recalled the code below and re-painted the table perfectly.

Thanks though!

51. Placido says:

This country doesn’t show flag Congo [DRC]

52. Seneca says:

Hey, nice plugin you have there. Unfortunately when I tried to use it on mine, got an:
Object id #239

Thanks.

1. PepLamb says:

Was that a javascript error?

53. Placide says:

Flag doesn’t show for this country.
Congo ( DRC)

1. PepLamb says:

It is added now thanks for reporting let me know if it doesn’t work for you

54. Bill Goode says:

Trying to figure out how to post the code for Google analytics. Been to the my Google account and have received the correct UA number info, go the code to insert missing a step when going into the Word Press Dash Board area. The instructions seems easy coming from someone that knows HTML.

55. Mohib says:

Great plugin, but if I only display pageviews as a %age, the list is not sorted by this value. How do you control what list is sorted by?

Thanks

1. PepLamb says:

hey good question thanks for reporting, i’ll look into this issue and see what needs to be done, thanks again

56. Steve says:

Im trying to get the plug in to work here but its coming up with

any clues on what i can do?

1. PepLamb says:

is your php version 5.0 or above?

57. Steve says:

It is only 4.x , im not sure if i can reliably change my PHP to 5 without major work on a joomla site and an oscommerce site??? I can enable PHP 5.x because its hosting with godaddy

58. wizkaa says:

Thanks for a good plugin.
Works greate. !!!

1. PepLamb says:

Thanks a lot for informing nivosh, it really helps i fixed it but will need someone to test it im at work and would greatly appreciate if you could take time and test it, thanks a lot again for reporting the issue

59. Maria Snyder says:

I’m receiving this error message and cannot access certain plug-ins alphabetically beyond the name of Google analytics. Here is my message,

Help? I do not see this plugin or any others beyond it like I said at the beginning when I click the plugin menu. I have Php 5 and use WP 3.0. My plugin says version 1.1.4.9 within the settings area, I have no problem accessing the plug in there.

1. PepLamb says:

Which version of WordPress are you using?

1. Maria Snyder says:

I’m using WordPress 3.0

1. Maria Snyder says:

Dear PepLamb,
I am continuing to experience this issue while using WordPress 3.0. Please help? The message continues and I can not access any plugins alphabetically beyond yours. Same question as my original one above.

1. PepLamb says:

hey Maria i’m sending you can email watch out ok?

60. Kathryn says:

Hey there,

so just confirming your plugin will not work for me as i have a “.” in my email? Is there a work around this?

1. PepLamb says:

Hey Kathryn there should be a work around, haven’t gotten much time to look into it hoping to integrate the plugin with google oauth api which should solve the problem, but i guess it will take time since im kinda busy the next few weeks 😐

61. Mark Neilson says:

Hi – the app worked for me for quite a while, but has stopped updating.. this is the debug report.. THANKS

exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘GAPI: Failed to authenticate user. Error: “Error=BadAuthentication

1. PepLamb says:

Hey Mark,
Please try the first one if the plugin did work for you before,
Let me know I’m here to help

1. Mark Neilson says:

Hi – yes, you’re correct – i did change my password recently, so that makes sense Thanks for that. Unfortunately I’ve now got a bigger problem as when i log into wordpress i can’t use it (so can’t access the ‘google analytics visits’ maintenance page to change the password). I get a fatal error message in wordpress that refers to the google analytics visits app having an error on line xxx (i don’t have access to wordpress from computer I’m using at the moment unfortunately so can’t put in the actual error message).

1. PepLamb says:

good that you know of it
I guess you must be using WordPress older than 3.1.0
ok this is the solution for the new problem you have
1). Just rename the plugin folder [google-analytics-visits to google-analytics-visits-2] or delete it
That should fix the problem

1. Mark Neilson says:

THANKS – such a relief I deleted the files and reinstalled the new version and I’m now up and running again! thx

2. PepLamb says:

awesome

62. donya says:

This plugin is great! However, is it possible to turn everything off except the Total Pageviews? Can if possible, I’d much rather paste a bit of code into my website, than have it be a widget since I do not use a sidebar on my site.

1. PepLamb says:

Hey Donya,
right now it is not possible but i will make sure you will have it int he next release

63. donya says:

*And (not Can)

64. Davide says:

Hi,
Im using your plugin and it’s nice, the only problem is that my sidebar is 200px and with long country name the number of pageview for each country is shifted out on the right and become cut or invisible, I don’t want to change the settings, how can I reduce the font size for the country name? (can u make auto resize as next upgrade?)

1. PepLamb says:

Davide you will have it in the next release where you can specify the font-size

65. Nico_GH2 says:

Noticed that I can’t go to the settings page through the plugin page (deactivate / settings / edit) but need to use the Settings – GAvisit menu on the lefthand of the dashboard. The plugin page gives me an ‘Unautohorized to view this page ‘ error. Using WP3.1.3 english.

Hope this is of some help.

Hey thanks for reporting will look into that

66. Gabriela says:

67. Morten Ross says:

Hi,

Great plugin!

One formatting issue: in settings preview the header is properly aligned with the columns (aligned right), but in sidebar, they are placed on the left. How to align properly?

Morten

1. PepLamb says:

hey Morten,

Thanks for letting me know i noticed on your website will be on it and you will have it fixed on the next release

1. Morten Ross says:

Hi,

I have now installed your next release, and the headers are still not aligned properly in the widget.

How to correct?

Morten

1. PepLamb says:

oops i missed on this one, hmmmm please give me a weeks time i will make sure you will have it by next week fine Morten?

1. Morten Ross says:

That would be just perfect

68. LEO says:

Hey!
I love your plugin, and it works great so far (haven’t yet updated to 3.2 though).
The reason I’m bothering you concerns the color of the text displayed. I did read through all the comments, but didn’t find the instructions to alter the font color. Please, would you help me out and tell how how exactly I can alter the font color?
It’s really a shame to have such an awesome plugin featured on my sidebar of the text is almost impossible to read due to a too light color.

Really appreciate your time and help!

1. PepLamb says:

Hey Leo,

I knew someone would ask for this feature so i already have it in the plugin ( right now you have no way to add it to the settings yet may be in the next release ) but you can add the following CSS to you style.css or where ever needed,

<style type="text/css"> .GoogleAnalyticsVisits_table { color: red; } </style>

Hope this will fix

1. LEO says:

Hey PepLamb!

Yeah, if the font color is fixed, chances are people will wanna be able to edit it, what with all the different themes and background colors and all…

Thank you, it did fix it, without the style tags though, just pasting in the style.css file this bit:

Instead of darkgreen it could be red, or whatever other color. But it works awesome, so thank you very much for the prompt answer!

You rOcK!

hi, after upgrading wordpress here what i got:

exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘GAPI: Failed to authenticate user. Error: “Error=BadAuthentication
Info=InvalidSecondFactor
Stack trace: …

the user and password are correct, what can cause this?

thanks

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Davide,
Let me know if it still doesn’t after these steps

1. Davide says:

Ok, turned back to work but the reason was another.
I recently added another user to my google analytics profile and defined it as “admin”, the previous one still present and with same data but de-classed to “only view reports” this broken the plugin.
Maybe is enough add a line or a check box to be sure people use the “admin” login data to sync ur plugin.
Another wish, can this plugin show the number/percentage aligned left and cut with … the country name if too long respect the widget width?
thanks alot

1. PepLamb says:

hi Davide the alignment for now would stay how it is since your request conflicts with requests made by other user to align to right so hmmmm i might come up with an option so you can choose the alignment in later releases in near future

72. Tarek says:

hey Alejandro,
neither UA-25096214 nor UA-25096214-1 are your Profile IDs, make sure you go to your google analytics, select your account there, look at the list of profiles there, then edit the profile you need and you will find the Profile ID on top-left

79. Mark Behelak says:

Hello,
In IE9 with googles analytics visits 1.1.4.9.7 and the theme Modularity Lite the list of the country appear one good one on white case.
Do you the reason?
Thanks

1. PepLamb says:

in this file /wp-content/themes/modularity-lite/library/styles/screen.css
you have following CSS
 tbody tr:nth-child(2n) td, tbody tr.even td { background-attachment: scroll; background-clip: border-box; background-color: #E5ECF9; background-image: none; background-origin: padding-box; background-position: 0 0; background-repeat: repeat; background-size: auto auto; } 
do this, comment background-color: #E5ECF9;
so your CSS should look like the following,
 tbody tr:nth-child(2n) td, tbody tr.even td { background-attachment: scroll; background-clip: border-box; /*background-color: #E5ECF9;*/ background-image: none; background-origin: padding-box; background-position: 0 0; background-repeat: repeat; background-size: auto auto; } 

hope this helps

89. Joe Zarate says:

Hello,
I just loaded your Google Analytics Visits v1.1.4.9.7 plugin. I like it very much except that the values display in the actual sidebar with spaces within the values.

They appear fine in the Setting Preview “[country flag] United States 6” but in the page sidebar they appear “[country flag]United States6”. Is there a simple fix to the CSS to fix it?

Thank you,
Joe

90. Joe says:

Hello,
I would like to use your plugin on my site but have the following issue when I installed it. There are no spaces between the country flag, country name, and count when displayed in the sidebar. They appear fine in the preview when setting the options.

When looking at the code I can see that the “text align=right” but is not displaying correctly. Is there a quick fix you can give me?

Thanks,
Joe

PS: This is my second request.

1. PepLamb says:

Hey Joe,

Sorry for being late could you give me your website so i could debug it?

92. Jame says:

A good plugin to showcase my analytics visitor’s countries & details.

I test it in my local machine XAMPP soft, but it didn’t work for me.
Does the plugin works in the local developement?

1. PepLamb says:

Jame,

yes it will you should check if the required extensions are enabled,
could you check your php.ini (\xampp\php\php.ini) if php_openssl.dll and php_curl.dll are enabled?
if its,
;extension=php_curl.dll ;extension=php_openssl.dll
uncomment these extensions (remove ; at the beginning) make it,
extension=php_curl.dll extension=php_openssl.dll`
then restart XAMPP it should work if not let me know

PS: first just enable php_curl.dll, if it still doesn’t work enable php_openssl.dll ( i am sure php_openssl.dll isn’t needed but just in case)
if it still doesn’t work let me know and i will test it on my machine

1. Jame says:

It’s working now! by uncommented only
extension=php_curl.dll

1. PepLamb says:

Ok I will ask again please answer me in order it helps me better understand the problem
1). Is your account a Google Analytics Account? if yes is it your gmail email? if yes will you please reenter it very carefully again?
2). Were you able to figure out what your profile id is? it doesn’t start with UA-1234567-1 if you have something like this its not the Profile ID
3). Which version of Google Analytics are you using? is it the latest or old?
4). if old please find where to find Profile ID at the top.
a). Click on admin ( found on right corner of orange bar ) you must be in Google Analytics – Account Administration
b). Under Accounts tab choose your account
c). Under Properties tab choose your property name
e). Under Profiles tab click on Profile Settings tab
f). You will find your Profile Name and Profile ID copy that profile ID and paste it in the plugin settings.

Let me know if this helps
GOD bless!

98. WordsOf Wacko says:

Hey, I am using your Google Analytics Visits. I have a query. Under the list of Countries, I have India on top followed by “not set” in my Google Analytics, hence your plugin is not fetching any information from those countries either. I am pretty sure, Philipines, China, Indonesia, are going under that category whereas in your screenshot I saw your plugin detects those countries.

How do I get to work that? I desperately need to see all the countries. Roughly about 17% of my visits are from those countries which are not being detected. Why is it so? What can be done?

1. PepLamb says:

Hello

Let me tell you the plugin gets the details Google Analytics provide, if Google analytics cannot identify the country the plugin has no control over it, its not that these countries Philippines, China, Indonesia are being missed its just that Google Analytics is not detecting those results.

Hope this helps

99. Lucia says:

Morten

1. PepLamb says:

Hello Morten,

Thanks for bring the issue to my notice
Are you using any caching plugin? if so could you deleted your cache and check again? if not when you upgrade could you please re-save your options?

Please let me know if this helps!

1. Morten Ross says:

Hi,

I just tested 1.1.5.8, and now 99.9% of the flags are showing. For some reason United Kingdom is not showing.

I’m not using cache software, and I have saved settings after upgrade.

I also think the appearance of the flags have deteriorated, as the upper edge of the flag has a line, or appear to have elements of anothe flag. Very visible in the flag of Sweden, USA, Denmark, France, Russia, etc.

BTW: your blog never notifies me of replies, which means it was pure luck I saw your reply as I saw a new version update for the plugin and wanted to check.

2. Morten Ross says:

I just noticed that also your page is missing the flag for United Kingdom

1. PepLamb says:

That is correct thank you for letting me know
the next release 1.1.5.9 (possibly tomorrow) will have a fix on this issue!

103. Tiago Oliveira says:

Hi from Portugal,
First of all, I love this plugin.
I also upgraded to 1.1.5.8 and the plugin stop displaying the UK flag.
Even when browsing your website, you may check this. Strangely, in the home page, the uk flag is displayed, but when visiting the other pages (about, blog…) it does not.

Yes, I did clear my browser´s cache (Safari for Mac).

I´ve downgraded the plugin to 1.1.5.6 and my website is displaying the uk flag again.

Thank you.

best regards
Tiago

Unfortunately the flags are still displaying colors from other flags in top and left sections.

For the time being I’m leaving this version on my site, so that you can take a second look.

Regards
Morten

And about the flags this is what i see on your blog here’s the screenshot http://www.flickr.com/photos/peplamb/7506614242 I don’t see any problems.
Could you please take a screenshot and let me know how its on your end?

Thanks Morten

Hey,

I didn’t get any mail notification this time either….. Very strange that the e-mail I have supplied is not used to notify of replies! Hope you can make the notification work again soon, as I don’t want to miss any updates here!

A very peculiar situation has arised after I have tested on IE, Firefox and Opera in addition to Chrome which is my default browser – I only have this problem in Chrome, and only in Chrome on this particular computer, and downgrading to version 1.1.4.9.6 and it is gone!

This is how it looks: http://www.ross.no/temp/peplamb060712.jpg

Thanks for getting back!
I will look at the notifications issue i will test it with chrome and hopefully get with some solution

Hey, PepLamb,
I have a new site form WordPress and the last version from your plugin. And a new ID from Analytics.
But it will not work.
My ID is UA-33093310-1, but by saving the ID, the Plugin cut “-1”.
What can I do?
This is the Bug-Report:
exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘GAPI: Failed to request report data. Error: “Invalid value for ids parameter: ga:UA-33093310″‘ in /www/htdocs/lebensbibliotheken/wp-content/plugins/google-analytics-visits/lib/gapi/gapi.class.php:218

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Edgar,

Sorry for the late reply i have been away lately!

UA-33093310-1 isn’t your profile ID you will need profile ID to make your plugin work, please read the instruction in the post content!

Let me know if you have any issues i will go through with you step by step if needed

Hi,

I’m now getting this error:

No matter what I do the plugin is now broken.

PS: have you considered Disqus? It would be much more powerful and easy to use both for us and for you. I would be notified (current solution never notifies me of updates in thread), as well as having a global repository of comments I have made on the web.

It will take you seconds to import comments to Disqus and set it up

Hey, Peplamb,

Hye,
As requested by your error message:

I’m getting in touch with you 😉

Can you help?

P.S: BTW, I think there is a typo in the error message in VisIts

124. Jeremy says:

The plugin was working nicely till I changed my server, and since then I found old data was getting shown. So I changed the analytics password and uncheck the cache option to freshen things up, and I’m getting this message:

I love the google analytics visits plugin and used it for a year. It stopped working though, and I wonder what I need to get it to continue working without losing visit. Thank you so much!!

131. Etienne says:

Any ideas on why the plugin stoppped working on my website?! 😉 I found my ID (the right one, I was confused with the UID) but it still doesn’t work.

A nice plugin for use on site

134. Etienne says:

With the solution I used in my upper post there is still one problem with the total countries count, nothing shown. I just updated to 1.1.6.1

1. PepLamb says:

Hey Etienne,

the total countries disabled for now though the option still exists since there is an issue with the API if there is any change with regards to total countries i will place it in the change log

135. Etienne says:

Today I wen through this error and try to sign and activate the 50,000 requests per day but it didn’t help….

Any ideas?

1. PepLamb says:

Hello Etienne,

One of the features included in the plugin is the ‘cache feature’ to allow fewer requests made to ‘Google Analytics’ did you enable cache? if so how many minutes did you set it to?

1. Etienne says:

No, I did not enable the cache. SO maybe this is the problem. I saw on wordpress a beat with a field to enter an API key. I seted up my google account to have a maximum 50000 requests per day. But can I be part of the beta testing add-on?

1. PepLamb says:

ok so if i get you right you are asking to be part of beta testing? sure you can are you a programmer? may be you can improve the plugin it if you are.

Just so you know my plugin doesn’t ask for any API key I guess you must be having “Google Analyticator” plugin which does ask for an API key.

1. Etienne says:

No problem, I am an industrial computing programmer. So debugging/testing is part of my job. 😉

2. PepLamb says:

Etienne, let me know your profile on wordpress.org and i will add you there to the plugin developers

2. Etienne says:

Don’t know how but it’s working again on my website… Any chance to be part of the beat test you suggest on the wordpress forum?

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Etienne, could you explain what you mean by “beat test” ?

1. Etienne says:

Sorry, typo error, beat should have been beta 😉

136. karel says:

Karel is caching enable in the plugin setting?

137. BMays says:

Hey! I love this plugin…it is the ONLY one I have found that can do what I need. I installed this on a client’s site and it shows up great on my PC. However, the widget doesn’t show up at all on my tablet, phone or Mac. Do you know what may be causing this? It was checked on a Galaxy Tab, an iPhone 5, a Galaxy Note 2 and a Macbook Pro.

1. PepLamb says:

BMays can you give me the url so i can test it?

138. Markos says:

Great plugin!

Add this line in your CSS template to customize color and font size:

1. PepLamb says:

139. Helmar says:

It would be super cool if the plugin didn’t show all page views or visits, but only those relevant to the page it is shown on, perhaps with a total counter at the bottom.

Otherwise awesome work!

1. PepLamb says:

Good thought! I will think about it but it might be heavy on calling Google Analytics over and over for each page and Google may not like it what say?

140. roberto says:

Plug in ottimo, ma ho due problemi: nel mio footer devo cambiare il colore del testo, come posso fare?
Il contatore mi si è bloccato su 44108 visite, come mai?

saluti

141. roberto says:

Sorry, I transalte my comment

Plug into excellent, but I have two problems: in my footer I have to change the text color, how can I do?
The counter I crashed about 44 108 visits, why?

1. PepLamb says:

1. If i understand it correctly you are asking if you could change the footer color? you can do it via custom CSS.
2. Do you mean the plugin is crashing after 44108 visits? It wouldn’t fail!

142. Pawel says:

Hi,

I love you plugin but could you be so kind and allow to modify the code such that the number of flags can be equal zero? All I mean, now, there is no option for displaying only the total number of visits and a list of flags is compulsory.

Thank you so much,
Regards,

Pawel

143. Louis says:

Hi,

I am using your Analytics WordPress plugin (as a widget) to display list of countries that visitors are from. However, I just noticed one unusual thing: no flag is displayed for Brunei! After going through the plugin files, it seems that there is indeed no flag for Brunei. Can this be added in a future version? In the meantime, can you let me know how I remedy this problem, e.g. include a small png/gif with the correct name perhaps?

Thanks!!

1. PepLamb says:

Hi Louis,

Thanks for letting me know I will review this issue and do the needful in the next release probably in a weeks time

144. Morten Ross says:

Hi,

I get this after I activated two factor security/login:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘GAPI: Failed to authenticate user. Error: “Error=BadAuthentication Info=InvalidSecondFactor “‘ in gapi/gapi.class.php:419 Stack trace: #0

I have no problem with other Google Analytics plugins like for instance Google Analyticator.
