Spy on your visitors with Blog Voyeur

Do you ever wonder what pages your regular visitors look at? Do they dig deep into your blog exploring old posts or do they sit in their feed reader and only read your latest posts?

By using my Blog Voyeur plugin you can find out.

This is the first release of the plugin. It appears to work well on the couple of blogs I tried but your mileage may vary. Download link is on the Blog Voyeur homepage above.

  1. Uploaded, Activated, Checked and got this message:

    “Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/alrights/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/blog-voyeur/voyeur.php on line 89″


  2. Awesome idea for a plugin! I also get the error:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/public_html/wp-content/plugins/blog-voyeur/voyeur.php on line 89


  3. Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/diablo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/blog-voyeur/voyeur.php on line 89

    Any suggestions on how to remedy this problem would be greatly appreciated. – Thanks! :)


  4. Installed. Although it might be overshadowed by Statpress which is doing a real nice job of overshadowing the WordPress.com Stats…

    And I think I can make out my entry in that sample image ;) – The one at 18/12/07 07:43:12. Why I was on at that hour or in the archive page I cannot remember :S


  5. I uploaded and turned it on, where will the list show in the Dashboard? I looked for a plug in page, but it didn’t create one, is that correct? Thanks for sharing this and I love your blog… very entertaining!


  6. I like the plugin and would like to use it but I am experiencing a problem. When I activate the plugin I get a ‘Done, but with errors on page’ in IE7. When I have a closer look at the error it shows ‘Error: document.getElementByID(…) is null or is not an object’. The problem is not there in Firefox. Can anyone help please.


  7. Arnold – thanks for spotting that. I thought I had commented out that code. To fix it, create a div in your sidebar with an id of ‘welcomemsg’ and it’ll be populated by a welcome message.

    Must comment it out until I document that …


  8. I’m using the last-ever version of PowerPhlogger and I have just question: does this do anything that PowerPhlogger doesn’t? E.g. can it recognise a specific user who’s coming back after having commented once in the past…etc?


  9. I am also getting the same message “Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/amy/public_html/wp-content/plugins/voyeur.php on line 89″ What was the final fix on that? Thanks!


  10. I’ve just checked in version 0.2, so head to the download page to get it.
    Changes:
    1. That foreach warning should be gone.
    2. Javascript cleaned up.
    3. Duplicate logging is fixed.


  11. Donncha,

    I am getting that same error:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/.toshibba/craigintwincities/historyhype.com/wp-content/plugins/blog-voyeur/voyeur.php on line 89

    WordPress has not found/acknowledge the 0.2 upgrade to your plugin that fixes that. Since I prefer to update all my blog plugins using an automatic updater plugin, please do make sure this upgrade that corrects this problem gets taken care of soon, will you?

    I appreciate it. Thanks!


  12. Nice finding, I usually use feedburner traffic stats and analyst my visitors outgoing click but I think this plugin will be more handy and very useful.


  13. Hi!

    After activating Voyeur I tryed to test it. I was unable to get my blog working but instead getting WordPress message about database not awailable. Some time after that blog is back, but I’m afraid to repeat using a Voyeur. Not sure what’s happend. Any idea?
