Admin's Referrers Page?

Hi,

I just finished upgrading my blog from BE 2.5 (GoDaddy) to BE 3.0 (Azure).

The newest version is really nice; however, I can't seem to find the list of referrers nor can I find any mention of it in any release notes. Was it dropped in some version between 2.5 and 3.0? If so, why?

Thanks,
Dave

Yes, main reasons are services like google analytics provide referrer stats plus lots more and with XML provider referrer stats saved to XML file sometimes treated by google as spam which marks site as "possibly hacked".

Thanks for explaining.

I've been using GA on my blog for a few years now too. But what I really liked about the referrers was that it was a bit quicker and easier to navigate and seemed to tell me a lot more at a glance than GA can in 10 minutes of clicking :)

But I can live with it.

Thanks,

There will be quick stats added to dashboard for exact this reason in one of the future releases.
