Blog Stats Flat-Line Fixage

WordPress stats suddenly flat-lined to zero? Then you might want to double check that your footer is being displayed, like, you wouldn’t want to add a widget like an XBox 360 Gamercard to your blog and then forget to close the iframe enclosing it, resulting in the footer not being called, and the stats not being updated, would you? [sheepish-cough].

If your footer is being called but page hits still aren’t registering, I’d look into making sure your WordPress API Key is all set up properly (like edit the WordPress Stats plugin [through Plugins | WordPress Stats | Editor] and hard-code it briefly to see if that helps). Worst case scenario your database has corrupted and/or blanked the key, in which case you could read this and get ready to get your hands dirty with PHPMyAdmin…
