Hello everyone,

am i the only where the statistics page in the admin section isn't working?

For example on the Views page i see in the table:
id, time, browser, os, user, page

but the result show up like:
id - time - browser - os - user - page
1 - 2009-01-06 22:06:21 - {empty} - {empty} - 1 - 1

So browser and os are just empty and user and page only show a number.

Is this normal?

Does any know more about this?

Did anyone fix this issue themselfs?

Where are the statistics kept / recorded (which files?) maybe i can do something myself to get "normal" readable results in there...

The statistics function is pretty buggy, that is why it has been stripped out of the default 2.3 install. One thing you can check is, is there actually a browser info stored in the database? If you have PHPmyadmin login to that, select your data then click the browse icon on the left of the 'PageView' table. Those are the actual records so check that the browser column has information in it.

I recommend using google analytics as it will provide you with alot more information.

I am already using 2 external statistics programs (google and piwik)..

But it would be really nice if it could be within SS.
