bbPress activity metrics

  • If anyone is curious there is still a download counter for bbPress here:

    http://bbpress.org/download/counter/

    It does about 200 downloads per day still.

    About 2,000 people downloaded a plugin (any plugin) last month.

    We had 208 people post to the forums last month.

    Any other metrics folks are curious about?

    Is it possible to copy over the “stats” code from the WP plugin section to bbpress.org, or is it more complex than that?

    ie. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-e-commerce/stats/

    vs. http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bbpress-signatures/stats/

    Even without the fancy graph, just the little History section would be handy.

    I’m debating doing another full survey of active bbPress installations by the end of this year despite it’s replacement, but it’s still easy to believe it’s well over 10,000 – might even be 20,000 or higher if the growth has become exponential.

    ps. somewhat related: the tag import (from readme.txt) in the plugin section has been broken since the bbpress.org 2.0 upgrade

    Ben (Nightgunner5) had written a greasemonkey script to show plugins’ stats – http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/63060

    I’ll ping Ben to see if we can’t get that on the site proper.

    Hey stats are working in the plugin section, awesome. Thank Matt.

    Now just get tag import working again (from the readme.txt) and the plugin section practically back to 100%

    Great!

    Strangely enough, the code was all there to do stats, it just needed to be turned on and modified ever so slightly to make the graph work.

    Yeah I suspected as much. Thanks for switching it on Otto!

    Sam did some work and then a great deal was copied over for bbpress.org 2.0

    I noticed the xml generator was there and the flash element was on bbpress.org too.

    Now if we could just get DD32 (Dion) to document the darn API for it as I have no clue how to use it and can’t find anything via google (other than downloading the ENTIRE dataset). http://api.wordpress.org/plugins/info/1.0/

    Oh wait, here’s something http://wordpress.pastebin.com/raw.php?i=7Ji8rD2P

    bingo – docs: http://comox.textdrive.com/pipermail/wp-hackers/2009-January/023505.html

    Doesn’t seem to be on the bbPress side anyway after all that, oh well.

    ps. I don’t suppose you can get tags working again in the plugin section – they are not being imported from the readme.txt file anymore. Is it because of the tag api name changes from bbpress 0.9 -> 1.0 ?

    ie. add_topic_tags became bb_add_topic_tags

    but that’s in the deprecated support, so not sure what else it might be

    Plugin directory is broken in a bunch of ways, might take a few to fix.

    Someone fixed the tags! Thank you, that was a biggie!

    Another little bug is when you search for something in the plugin section, the links that come up are invalid and not fully formed.

    Newbies might find that really confusing.

    (but we won’t mention how bad the search is in the first place)

    Will take a look at the links, maybe we could switch the search over to use Sphinx like we do on WP.org. (Sphinx is infinitely better and faster than anything we could ever do native in MySQL.)

    Please switch the search over. We mentioned that here soon after WordPress switched.

    It’s on the list, I want it for the WP support forums as well.
