Find rich-stats plugin for WordPress
One of our blogging stalwarts has requested a full-featured stat plugin for his WordPress blog. He says that the simple counter plugin we installed should be fine for now, but it would be worth checking to see whether a better stat plugin than FireStats exists.
- What's the name of the plugin/theme?
Unknown, as of yet.
- [plugins] In a few words, what does it do?
Offers basic stats and info on visitors, somewhat comparable to those offered by Sitemeter
- How is the plugin/theme different from what's already provided on the Commons?
- What's the potential impact? Who will use it?
Potentially of use to all bloggers on the site
- Who initially made the request?

Ron or Ray, do either of you know anything about the universe of stats tracking? I don't really know what we're looking for, but here are some thoughts about what a good solution might be like:
- fairly rich analytics, something like what wordpress.com's Stats plugin gives you
- data is stored locally (ie not wp.com or Google Analytics)
- Activated optionally on a per-blog basis
- Is reasonably resource-efficient

Haven't tried the following, but they could be options:
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/statpress-visitors/ (there are a couple of other StatPress forks, but this one looks like the most popular)
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/daily-stat/ (is a lighter version of StatPress Visitors by the same author)

Thanks, guys. I've played around some with StatPress Visitors, and it seems to do the job. Fixed in https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/b78236e3e580f95dd145266ead1da676912a3049
