[innerindex]I started bStat in 2005 when I ported my blog from pMachine to WordPress and needed to bring over the tools I’d built to identify popular stories and recent comments. I renamed it bSuite when I added tagging and other features to it. Now it’s bSuite 3.
- Tracking of page loads for each post and page.
- Popular posts/pages widget and function to surface the posts your readers most, well, read.
- Reports on top stories, climbing and falling stories, and referrers.
- A related posts widget, function, and page to help readers find more posts in your blog.
- A share links widget, function, and page to help readers bookmark, share, translate, and get feeds to your posts.
- Innerindex to provide structure to long posts and pages.
- Includes a generic tag importer that will convert tags from previous versions of bSuite as well as from a number of other recognized formats.
CMS enabling goodies
- Adds excerpt field to the page editing screen.
- Adds category selector to the page editing screen.
- A pagemenu thingie (token) to list the child pages of the current page.
- Tokens are thingies you put in the post of page content that get replaced with the results of a PHP function. A number of tokens are built in, but they’re extendable; bSuite Slideshow offers one example of how another plugin could leverage tokens.
