Update: December 21, 2016: WP removed the blue “old” Stats page today. See: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/stats-feedback/

More info and workaround: Hotfix for WP stats redirect script

Update: December 24, 2016: Classic Stats Redirect script v2 released! and Classic Stats Redirect script v2.1.0 released!

In December 2014, wordpress.com launched a “new” Stats page in Beta form. If you’d prefer to use the old Stats page with the map, this is the link: https://wordpress.com/my-stats.

How to Find the Old Stats Page Link:

First you have to go to the WP Admin, classic Dashboard. You can find it from your blog by hovering over “My Sites”, clicking on “WP Admin”.

This is your classic Dashboard link: https://yourblogname.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ (replace “yourblogname” with the name of your blog, obviously).

From the classic Dashboard then click “View All” on the Stats module on the lower right-hand side below the stats graph.

How to find the really old, classic Stats Page:

The really old, classic Stats page with our own color scheme is at this link: https://yourblogname.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats (insert your blog’s name before wordpress.com in the link).

Go to “My Sites” at the top left of the page, click on “WP Admin”. Click on “Site Stats” in the sidebar on the left-hand side of the dashboard.

I suggest making bookmarks for your browser for these links that you use frequently.

Miscellaneous

How to Log-In:

Log-in to WP through the WP-Admin dashboard: https://wordpress.com/wp-login.php

How to Log Out:

From any of the WP-Admin Pages or from your blog:

Hover over your gravatar, click “Sign Out”.

From the “too-blue” WP Pages:

Click your gravatar on the top right of the administrative bar, https://wordpress.com/me, then scroll down on the left-hand side and the last option under “Extras” is to “Sign Out”.

Or clear your cookies on your browser and that will log you out.

How to change the color scheme for the classic dashboard:

From the left sidebar on the classic WP-Admin pages, go to “Users”, click on “Personal Settings”, then choose your color scheme. Click each one for a preview before deciding. Click “Save” at the bottom of the page when finished.

Keep in mind that WP launches Beta products with all their so-called “new” pages/options and the users at wordpress.com become the unpaid beta-testers, most without even their knowledge and/or consent.

  1. what is the cute icon to use for “I Hate WordPress” (not a heart symbol)????
    They are wrecking the dashboard!

    • Well, the classic dashboard is still there and very operational. That’s the only one I use. To get there is not as easy as it used to be which is why I made these “how-to” posts. The so-called “new” WP pages are in Beta form and less functional as the classic pages.
