    Hi Mr. Omry, I’m gonna be using your plug-in again. ^_^

    Thank you for the WP plugin. I have used BBClone for years on all my websites with great success EXCEPT for the one site using wordpress. I have never been happy with any of the 5-6 ways I found to get BBClone to work with WP. I used the standalone installation method of firestats and it works great with WP.

    I would suggest, however, that you include the fs-config.php and fs-config-lock.php in your package with instructions to CHMOD 777 first. Once install is finished CHMOD 644. These files are not included in package now and instructions are not clear that they have to be created. I had to create them myself.

    fs-config.php file is created automatically by firestats configuration tab.
    there are instructions for difficult cases in the FAQ.

    Hi

    Thank you for this great plugin.

    One option I miss to set: I want to disable logging IP-addresses, cause here in Germany future law seems to disallow that. I disabled IP logging in server logs and in the semmelstatz statistic plugin, and I also want to disable that in firestats. Otherwise I have to disable firestats, but that’s not really what I want.

    Best regards from Germany,
    Markus

    Hi Markus,
    I find this very interesting.
    are you sure it relates to any site owner and not just to ISPs?

    can you point me to some information about this law in English?

    Here in Germany the government decides to renew the law about data privacy. This is not law yet.

    The interesting point of the drafts is that it will be no longer allowed to log ip addresses if it is not needed for correct function. ISPs may log the ip addresses for billing, web shops also can do. I can store ip addresses in session variables, but when the session ends, it will be forbidden to store the ip any longer. I found no English information about that, sorry.

    So, what I mean is an option to disable ip logging in firestats, e.g. clicking a checkbox in the global settings. The new version of semmelstatz brings this checkbox, and if I disable ip logging the ip address is set to “n/a”. But the semmelstats plugin is a German plugin.

    Regards,
    Markus

    PS: Sorry for my bad English

    Markus, it’s not trivial because FireStats uses the IP address to calculate the number of visitors and the country flag.
    if this becomes a law in Germany I will consider implementing something.
