For the last couple months, I’ve been working on a top secret project that’s pretty fun. Webtrends is a client of mine who we’re assisting with reducing cost per lead, increasing conversion rates and improving online visibility (I know that’s generic… but these guys are in a highly competitive market!). With the high number of enterprise businesses utilizing WordPress, it made sense that Webtrends would provide an integrated offering… so we built it.
The Webtrends plugin isn’t just a crappy little plugin to add your analitika code sa iyong footer - napakadali nito. Sa halip, nagdala kami ng Webtrends na hindi kapani-paniwala analitika sa dashboard ng WordPress!
The project had it’s challenges! While Webtrends API is one of the best I’ve ever utilized (push a button in your Analytics app to get the API call!), trying to provide a unique user interface that matched WordPress was tough but I think we nailed it. There’s a settings page where you fill in your API details and select your account…. and you’re up and running!
The dashboard is also 100% Ajax driven to ensure pageload time are kept to a minimum. It was a joy to work through WordPress’ Ajax security model (a little sarcasm there, but I recognize the need to have a good one!).
Kung ikaw ay isang Mga Webtrend client at nais na mag-beta test sa amin, mangyaring ipaalam sa akin. Kailangang patakbuhin ng iyong server ang PHP 5+ na pinagana ang cURL library upang ang API calls can be retrieved! We’ll be talking more about the plugin at Makisali sa 2010!
UPDATE: Nakalimutan kong banggitin iyon Ole Laursen tumulong din sa koponan. Ole upang matulungan kaming maayos na isama ang FLOT sa plugin. Flot ay isang open-source jQuery based rich charting engine. I’m so sorry I forgot to mention Ole! He was wonderful to work with.
