Joomla! Statistics Plugin

joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west ukThe Joomla! Statistics Plugin was introduced with Joomla! 3.5.

This plugin is designed to submit anonymous data to the Joomla Project to enable monitoring of Joomla! CMS usage with a view to ensuring that future versions of Joomla can take advantage of the latest database and PHP features without affecting significant numbers of users.

Example: determine what proportion of users are hosting their Joomla! website on servers using PHP 7.

  • Joomla version,
  • PHP version,
  • database engine and version, and
  • server operating system. 

This plugin is disabled by default in WYNCHCO website designs.

Reason: we believe there are other less intrusive ways that the Joomla! Project could monitor Joomla! CMS usage.
