Search Meter WordPress plugin version 2.7

Version 2.7 of Search Meter, my free WordPress search statistics plugin, is now available. I have added four often-requested features:

  • Duplicated recent searches are shown only once in the Recent Searches plugin
  • You can now specify a list of filter words. Any searches containing these words will not show up in the recent and popular search widgets, even if the searches were successful
  • Search links in the widgets will work correctly whether or not fancy permalinks are enabled
  • The blog administrator can decide who is allowed to see full statistics: all logged-in users, authors and administrators, or administrators only

This version of Search Meter requires WordPress 2.3 or later. If you are still using an older version you should probably upgrade anyway, otherwise you can always use an older version of Search Meter.

Let me know how the new features work for you. If you have any comments or questions, just add a comment to this page.

Search Meter WordPress plugin version 2.6

Version 2.6 of Search Meter, my WordPress search statistics plugin, is out now. This version has been upgraded to work with the latest version of PHP (5.3), and the search widgets now integrate better with WordPress 2.8 themes. The other change is that Search Meter should now work better on international websites — it now creates its database tables using the UTF-8 character encoding, which should work with non-Latin-based languages such as Chinese, Greek, Hebrew and so on.

You can upgrade your existing Search Meter from your WordPress administration interface, or go to the Search Meter page for more information.
