Today at WordCamp San Francisco iFusion Labs demonstrated a new WordPress Integration Plugin which brings Woopra statistics right into your WordPress dashboard.
This is the first time any service provider has allowed users to embed Web Analytics within their own site, and it offers a number of benefits to Webmasters:
- Immediate access to analytics, traffic statistics and user visits from within the standard WordPress interface.
- Zero footprint on the local WordPress server speeds up your Web page loads without cluttering your database.
- Users can customize the statistics interface with simple CSS modifications.
- Users can modify the WordPress Plugin and contribute back to the community with changes and new ways to display the data.
- It's light, Ajax enabled, and sexy!
The Woopra WordPress Integration Plugin is meant to augment, not replace, the Woopra Client. For the full Woopra experience the Client still offers live mapping, live user streaming, chat functionality, searches and more.
What may not be readily apparent from looking at the WordPress Pugin is that this is the first open application of the Woopra API, which will ultimately allow developers to build widgets, plugins and more.
To experience this powerful new feature, download the new Woopra WordPress Plugin, but please keep in mind that this is a BETA. There will be issues with it. Please report bugs and issues in the Woopra Forums.
Very special thanks goes out to Mark Jaquith for his assistance with the Woopra Plugin.
UPDATE: There is a known error that can occur for some WordPress blogs on line 21 in the Plugin. Please see Woopra WordPress Plugin - Looking for Conflicts for information and a solution.
WordPress Beta testers are encouraged to keep putting this Plugin through its paces and to report in the Woopra Forum on bugs and errors so we can ensure this Plugin works across a wide spectrum of WordPress blogs. Thank you!
