I guess it's ok but too heavy on my server's resources. So I deleted it, but even after cleaning DB and checking everywhere for leftovers, your plugin's menu and all it's sub-menus are still showing on my admin's sidebar, obviously if I click on any of them menu links I just get error blank pages. If you know how to totally remove your plugin (phantom menus and all), I'll appreciate the info... Thanks for your plugin!

The latest version 7 of this plugin is truly remarkable compared to its previous generation. As an agency owner utilizing this plugin across more than 20 sites, I initially had concerns. At first, there were a few issues with the new version, such as the absence of old stats and malfunctioning old version shortcodes. However, I greatly appreciate the author's prompt communication and unwavering determination. They dedicated additional hours to resolve these issues diligently. I'm pleased to share that in version 7.0.4, the migration process worked seamlessly. We were able to retrieve all our previous stats, and the shortcodes are now functioning flawlessly. I extend my sincere admiration to the author for creating such an exceptional plugin. Their hard work is truly commendable. Thank you immensely for your dedication and contributions.

EDIT 2: Despite the Author's efforts to make things right, the latest version .4 is stuck on migrating and no way to circumvent or skip the process. Can not continue or make it work. It was great while it lasted. After upgrade to version 7, the previous page counts did not migrate. The migration process ran on first install, but when the status page appeared, all counts were zero. The plug-in uses new short codes as well. Old ones no longer work. I have at least 20 short codes set up on a statistics page I use for tracking. Not only have I lost my counts, but none of the short codes work. Just beware - record your counts and be prepared to have to redo your short codes. EDIT/Follow-Up: I give the author full credit is trying to resolve this issue. In the end, I had to recreate my short codes to get them working again. That said, since the migration failed on my site, I tried to delete all data to start anew, but the global site visit counts will not zero out (it stays above 900).
