Pulse Pro 1.7.2 - Visitor Stats

Nov 26, 2011

Pulse Pro 1.7.2 introduces a new feature, visitor stats.  This feature is not intended as a replacement for a full blown analytics package such as Google Analytics, but it gives a quick overview of your website's traffic.  There are only three metrics used, daily visitors, top referrers and top pages.  This basic set of information will tell you how many people are coming to your site, where they are coming from and what content they are viewing.

To track visitors on your site, just add the tracker embed code to the footer of any page you'd like to track.  If your site uses a master template, you can just include it in the footer and it will track all pages that use the template.

Nice addition Mark.

You really keep "up-ing" the game with Pulse.

I'm not sure how I consider these updates...
Some "updates" require a more aggressive approach like version 1.7.1 which included some "code cleanup".
In this "update" we are just adding the ability to have basic "Stats". There must be "key" files and folders that just need to be added to version 1.7.1 to make it 1.7.2. And, for those of us who already have Pulse installed a "short list" of what needs to be added makes sense. At least to me.

Thanks for all you do Mark! And keep up the great job.

I'm not sure what your point is here. But I woud not recommend patching since this version has about 10 different modified files. It's not as simple as you might presume.

Love this new feature Mark ... its just enough traffic analysis for 95% of site owners, not over the top, which is perfect. I think the simplicity of Pulse really is where its beauty and magic is, I have been using Pulse since the early days, and love where you are taking it.

Great work Mark .... PulseCMS Rocks! :)

I've just come across your amazing CMS system. For an "oldskool" designer that prefers hands-on design instead of extensive template coding, you've just made my life so much easier when clients want a CMS option! Your script is more affordable, more flexible, more feature-filled, and most importantly: the Simplest CMS to implement and use!! Thank you very much for you hard work, long live Pulse CMS!

Pulse rocks.

Am now making extensive use of Pulse on client sites. Really useful for clients who have regular updates to do to their sites. See:

There are 2 editable CMS areas on the front page and more in the sidebars of the Concerts and Workshops page. It is all built into my Rocket theme for RW, which I am going to be working on a little update too at some stage. See:

What I would like to know is how scalable Pulse is planned to be. What new features are planned?

Thanks for the kind words everyone, glad you like it.

Andy - I'm not sure what you mean by scalable, thats a very broad term. And I don't announce new features until they are released. But I can tell you that 1.7.3 is coming very soon.

I was thinking about things like levels of access for larger sites for bigger companies (admin/editor/user) or perhaps client only areas/pages for delivering content and other stuff like that.

An auto update button from within the platform would be handy too.

There are no plans for various access levels as Pulse is not intended for large corporate websites. As for auto update, that would be nice, but its a pretty tall order and a bit out of my league to be honest...
