Wp-slimstat gives a fatal error

Update #1: I forgot to explain what wp-slimstat is. Wp-slimstat is a simple web statistic wordpress plugin, which means you can see how many visits you get and from where/how many/etc. But the good part is that you can see it when you login there will be an extra tab on the Dashboard to the statistics “Slimstat”.

Update #2: RTFM ….. in the README.txt (chapter 8. LOCALIZATION) there is an explanation about this “fatal error”

make sure you have set your blog’s default language in wp-config.php,
e.g. : “define (‘WPLANG’, ‘en_US’ );? and that the corresponding
localization file exists in wp/slimstat/lang folder.

I found my error on the support forum… the solution I describe here still works.

Today I tried to install wp-slimstat and all I got:

Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: cachedfilereader in [snipped]/wp-includes/wp-l10n.php on line 67

I could not find the answer to this problem on the site of the creator of this wp-plugin but it seems that all wordpress-2.0.4-users have this problem!
So I try good old google …. and found the answer..

try open wp-config.php or wp-config-sample.php
edit this lines:
define ('WPLANG', '');
define ('WPLANG', ' ');

And now I have wp-slimstat, so I know what you did last hour!

I am not exactly sure what you mean Symen.
But I hope that the changes to this post will clear things up!

Perhaps you are working with an older version of WordPress and then you don\’t have this problem.

this post is old but i found it via google..
i’ve not this problem… i have the “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 77824 bytes) in /home/configur/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-slimstat-ex/lib/pins.php on line 468” (my hosting) says that i have to upgrade my plan to obtain more memory limit… it’s strange, before i had a lower-range hosting provider and SlimStat work perfect…
I have to search another stats plugin 🙁
I love SlimStat but i can’t use it now :S

I stopped using Slimstat for two reasons (I think it was these two, it’s bin a while).
1. It generated a lot of data that had to be stored somewhere
2. It was to addictive: just on the dashboard, tempting me to see what has happened to my site

So I switch to google analytics.
