FireFox extension to view your WordPress.com blog stats

The MMD WordPress FireFox extension is finally publicly listed on the mozilla site. After battling problems with xul layouts on Mac’s (which was tricky because I don’t have a Mac) I’ve finally resolved the issues that were preventing my firefox stats toolbar from being fully reviewed on the main FireFox site.

If you’ve not seen it before, the MMD WordPress FireFox extension adds a tiny toolbar that shows you your current blog hits on your wordpress.com blog(s). You can then right click to get quick access to the full stats page, new post page and view your blob. Simple but quite useful. Download and install from mozilla

MMD WordPress.com FireFox Extension v1.1

I’ve released a new version of the MMD WordPress.com FireFox extension, that fixes a bugette I had in the clickability of icons in the about box and has added a couple of new options to the status bar panel. If you have a WordPress.com blog you simply must have this extension.

I’ve also nominated the extension to become public on the mozilla firefox addons site. To help with this I really need people who download it and use it to review it. There have been over a hundred downloads so far and only 2 reviews! Add a review people, I shall send you an email full of e-karma if you do so 😀

RSDC US Feedback

This week we got our feedback scores from the RSDC 2008 in Florida. I had two presentations this year and got am average of 4.27 out of 5 on my RPM talk and 4.7 out of 5 for my practice based RUP deployment presentation 😀

I’ll be repeating the practice based RUP deployment talk at the RSDC UK in September CUPID – Implementing the IBM Rational Unified Process at PricewaterhouseCoopers Scroll down a few posts to see some info on the RSDC UK

As for the WordPress FireFox extension – I can see lots of people downloading it, but very few rating it or adding a review. I need those ratings to push it public on the FireFox extensions website. If you’ve tried it out leave a review and rating – please!


MMD WordPress FireFox Extension – know your hit count!

I often want to know how many hits my wordpress blog has had without loading the stats page, mainly so I can compete with a fellow blogger who sits opposite me in the office 😛

So I made the MMD WordPress FireFox extension, install it and you get a tiny status bar panel that shows your current daily hits. You can right click the panel and hit “View Stats Details” and FireFox will happily take you to your normal stats page on WordPress.com

To Install:

The MMD WordPress FireFox extension is brand new! That means it’s an “experimental” extension according to mozilla.org and so it needs people to try it out and post a review to become publicly listed on the main FireFox addon website.

You can install it here – please add a review!

The Future:

I’m thinking about adding some stuff to do with the normal browser right click menu to add:

  • Add link to BlogRoll (when hovering over a link)
  • Post link to blog (which would just open the normal WordPress posting page but prefill the form with stuff link the link, title etc. ready for you to edit)

And other suggestions please comment!
