WordPress.com Stats Stopped Working

I recently integrated a blog and documentation base into the Tribulant.com website and noticed after a few days that my WordPress.com stats stopped working completely after switching the theme.

I’ve been puzzled about this for a few days now and managed to figure out that, out of idiocy, I completely forgot to call the wp_footer function in the footer.php file of my custom theme. If you recently changed your WordPress theme and noticed that your stats stopped working, ensure that the wp_footer function is called in your footer file, just before the BODY tag. See the example below :

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

Best of luck!

    Yep, the footer is a very important in the creation in wordpress themes, particularly if you want your stats to show.
