Use sitestat to analyse your Plone site visits.

Project description

By Ingeniweb.

iw.sitestat makes the glue between a Plone site and a Sitestat professional analytics service. The Sitestat product is a commercial application from Nedstat.

We assume at that point that your Sitestat service is correctly installed and configured.

Note that the authors of iw.sitestat have no connection with the Nedstat company.


  • iw.sitestat requires Plone 3.1 or newer.
  • simplejson is added automatically by easy_install/zc.buildout.


We assume that you created your Zope instance with paster create -t plone3_buildout <your-instance> or something similar. And of course you’re supposed to know how to set up a Plone site using zc.buildout.

With zc.buildout

Recommended practice for integration or production instances.

Open buildout.cfg with your favorite text editor and change it like indicated below:

eggs =
zcml =

Run your buildout, you’re done.

From Subversion repository

Recommended practice for developers.

Install as indicated in With zc.buildout above.

Checkout your preferred trunk/branch of iw.sitestat in $BUILDOUT/src (You should have $BUILDOUT/src/iw.sitestat/… after this). See the Project home pages section for the repository URL.


$ cd $BUILDOUT/src/iw.sitestat
$ python develop

Open buildout.cfg with your favorite text editor and change it like indicated below:

develop =

Run your buildout, you’re done. Your Subversion working copy of iw.sitestat should take over the egg.


Site wide configuration

Go to the Sitestat configuration panel. This configuration panel is self explanative for people who have basic skills in Sitestat settings. Please refer to your Sitestat sevice documentation for terms in use in this control panel.

Content item options

Each content item has a Sitestat thumbnail available to anybody who has item modification permission, even if Sitestat connection is desactivated in the above mentioned control panel. As for the global config, the various option widgets are self explanative for people familiar with Sitestat features.


At this stage of development, we do not yet honour the following Sitestat features:

  • Adobe Flash decoration support.
  • Forms decoration support.

These features are not essential in the context of a Plone site since Plone is not suited for Flash oriented sites, and Plone has its own tools for forms support.


Visit in ZMI the portal_setup object of your site, click Upgrades and select iw.sitestat:default. All is obvious from there.


As stated above, we will never provide support on Sitestat services, or whatever that’s covered by Nedstat commercial support. We only support iw.sitestat itself.


You may report bugs or ask for features in our tracker. See the “tracker” link from the project home page at

Please read the rules written in the home page of the tracker before reporting in the tracker. More specifically, please check that there is no answer to your issue before filing anything.


You may ask for further support (training, commercial support, …) at Ingeniweb support if you don’t find answers to your questions in the tracker.

Further documentation

See the other files in docs/*. In addition this component may have other more specific README.txt files in its directory tree.

More technical documentation may be found in docs/DESIGN.txt and iw/sitestat/tests/*.txt


About LinguaPlone

We do not know if iw.sitestat is LinguaPlone compliant. At this time we do not synch automatically content item options in the various translations of a content item. As LinguaPlone is supposed to override standard Plone and Archetypes APIs, we do not consider the issues raised when mixing LinguaPlone and iw.sitestat in the same site as iw.sitestat bugs. Anyway, sponsorship and contributions are welcome to get all this working fine.
