Usage Tracking

Usage tracking for WPCode helps us better understand our users and their website needs by looking at a range of server and website environments.This allows us to continuously improve our product as well as our Q&A / testing process. Below is the list of information that WPCode collect as part of the usage tracking:

  • PHP Version: so we know which PHP versions we have to test against (no one likes whitescreens or log files full of errors).
  • WordPress Version: so we know which WordPress versions to support and test against.
  • MySQL Version: so we know which versions of MySQL to support and test against for our custom tables.
  • WPCode Version: so we know which versions of WPCode are potentially responsible for issues when we get bug reports, allowing us to identify issues and release solutions much faster.
  • The SERVER_SOFTWARE variable in PHP: We use this to determine the top hosts users are using and make sure that we have testing accounts with those hosting companies, so we can properly test our new releases with various host environments. This also helps us identify conflicts with specific hosting providers so we know which hosts to work with to fix the issue if it’s a server configuration issue.
  • Theme/Plugin names and versions: So we know which themes and plugins to support and test against. WPCode runs on over 1 million websites. While we can’t test with all 50,000+ plugins, we do our best to test against the top plugins from this list.
  • License key and email and url: If you’re a WPCode customer, then we use this to determine if there’s an issue with your specific license key, and to link the profile of your site with the configuration of authentication to allow us to determine if there’s issues with your WPCode authentication.
  • WPCode settings: So we know which settings people are using, allowing us to determine potentially which new settings or areas of WPCode people want us to expand on, and which settings people aren’t using.
  • Site and user count and is multisite: This allows us to gauge how important it is to support specific types of multisites like multi-network and similar styles of configuration and gauge how much we need to scale our servers before launching features like author tracking dashboards that are correlated to the number of users on a site using it in terms of scale.
  • Usage tracking config: The WPCode option that contains the information on when the usage tracking data-sync will happen (once a week), so we can gauge the server load for the usage tracking servers.
  • Snippets count: The number of snippets that you have installed on the site and how many active snippets you have along with how many of those snippets were generated using a WPCode generator and which generator was used. This helps us improve the way we load snippets based on usage patterns and add more relevant generators or improve the existing ones.
