Drupal Statistics 2.0

Submitted by timmillwood on Fri, 07/24/2015 - 21:15

Since February 2012 I have been the maintainer of the Statistics module in Drupal core. Since then I have overseen two pretty big changes to the module.

Admittedly this was after in 2011 I tried to get the module removed from Drupal core.

The first big change was to remove a good chunk of the module, the access log. This tracked things like referrers and visitors, which most people do in a service like Google Analytics. This was committed by Dries to Drupal 8 in early 2013.
