I would avoid using the statistics module as it is unsupported and fairly featureless. Google Anaylitics provides a much nicer functionality. You can edit the link in the top menu to point to that url if client wants a link
Oh yes, i know about Google Analytics, but its JS based and transfers too much information to Google.
We want a solution where we can provide much privacy to our users as possible!
Maybe i'll use AWStats or something like that.
