In a seeming case of Murphy’s law just when I had found a theme I really liked I ran into a problem.
The previous theme had the featured post slideshow setup I really liked but I couldn’t get the stats tracking services to work. This might seems like a small price to pay for a nice, and free, theme but it was one of those things that really got under my skin because I couldn’t understand why it wasn’t working.
So I switched back to this theme to verify that the theme was the problem. And sure enough, as soon as I switched to a different theme the stats plugins started tracking traffic again.
Just thought I would make a note of this for informational purposes and in case there were any technical folks reading this who might be interested in helping me solve this problem.
