It’s something I’m completely proud to have been working on for the past few weeks (along with the incredible Automattic team!): WordPress.com has a new overhauled stats page. This first round of the overhaul brings sortable dashboard-esque boxes to the stats page, and a revamped non-Flash, iPad compatible histogram bar chart.
On the whole, the community seems to like the new look, but a number of people miss the old line-chart and a few others find the new design boxy and uninspired. Which is their prerogative and I won’t spend too much time defending it, other than say that a lot of thought been poured into the revamp, and personally I think and hope it’ll grow on people. As for histogram charts, there are a lot of good, semantic, reasons for going with them. But my personal favourite is the large hit area each bar provides, for when you want to look at individual day stats. Penny for your thoughts?
