Currently, the site statistics are based on a rolling 24-hour clock. There should be an option to report by day. This makes it much easier to compare against other reporting tools.

In what might be a related matter, if I choose to run the Page View report for a period of 12/5/2011 to 12/5/2001, I get results of 0 pages. This is definitely wrong in my case. The report should show all visits from 12/5/2011 12 Midnight through 12/5/2011 11:59PM/23:59.

I'm not sure it is a rolling clock. I think it is tied to hour zero of the selected day for both the start and end dates. If I'm wrong please let me know a specific example.

I agree on the second point, I've just committed a patch to make it set the end-date time to the end of the day it is on, rather than the start.

For now you just need to select one day ahead on the end date.

Chris-

Thanks for fixing the second issue.

The reason I believe it is a rolling clock is demonstrated in the attached report for the 404 page from 12/1 to 12/5. The current time when the report was produced was around 11:15AM.



Note that the first two blocks use the current hour to define the reporting base rather than hour 0 of the day. Further down, you can see that the entries for "days" span days rather than reporting discrete days.

Ah yes, you're right.

However honestly we're not even trying to compete on the stats front, there are way better tools out there. Google Analytics can do any page stats stuff.

Chris-

I realize that and am, in fact, using those other tools.

My problem is that I am getting a lot of 404s in the site stats and the online members which don't appear in the raw logs. Since the site stats don't display the IP address (that would be a nice option), I am doing screen caps of the online members and checking them the next day to see if I can figure out why I get so many 404s in ocPortal.
