Plugin Update – WP SlimStat and SlimStat DashBoard Widgets

One of the nicer stats plugins that we like to use is the SlimStat collection. (Plugin Of The Week – 10/28/2013 – WP SlimStat). We feel the plugin is a better stats package then you might get with other plugins such as Jetpack. It also has considerably less overhead then using JetPack. In order to take full advantage of plugin features make sure to update your plugins regularly. With that in mind, please check out the recent updates of the Slim Stat plugin and the Slim Stat Dashboard Widgets.
