[innerindex]Update: bugfix release b2v7 available.
It’s been a while since I released a new version of bsuite, my multi-purpose WordPress plugin. I’d been hoping to finish up a series of new features, but those have been delayed and this is mostly just a collection of bugfixes. This update is recommended for all bsuite users.
- Tracks page loads (hits)
- Tracks search terms used by visitors ariving at your site via search engines
- Reports top-performing stories via a function that can be included in the sidebar
- Reports recent comments via a function that can be included in the sidebar
- Reports top search terms via a function that can be included in the sidebar
- Outputs a pulse graph of activity on your site or specific stories
- Highlights search words used by visitors ariving at your site via search engines

- A fix to address a MySQL error for users running MySQL 5 has been long overdue. It’s in here.
- Numbers in the reports are now formatted with commas or whatever local format you’ve set MySQL for, using MySQL’s
- As requested, I’ve added a function —
bstat_hits()— return just the hit count for a story or for the whole blog.
- As requested, you can now manually clear the bsuite_speedcache.
- As prompted, prodded, and cajoled, I’ve finally made a change to report hits to the front page (and other pages without post IDs).
- I did a bunch of thinking about tags a while ago, and bsuite now keeps an index of tags in a separate table. I’ve got plans to use this for later features, but for now it’s just a curiosity that shouldn’t cause any problems.
You can now switch between
This appears to make it compatible with a number of existing tag management strategies now in use — including those used by [Ecto] and [SimpleTags]. Tags in <tag> and
