WordPress Stats Problem – fixed

I’ve kept up with all the upgrades etc for WordPress and all the add-ons I use. But two days ago the internal stats system that is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/ stopped working. It took these last few days to sort but it turns out a key line was missing from my new theme, illacrimo.

However, it turns out that the info was there all along, if only I’d looked ;(

This page, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/169528?replies=11 in the forums was the pointer, but the answer was here http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/faq/, in the FAQs all along. And I quote:

What if the stats don’t start showing up? Do I need anything special in my theme?

Yes, your theme must have a call to <?php spwp_footer(); ?> at the very bottom right before the </body> tag.

So there we have it. I did it and it worked. Now to get the other problems sorted…
