Viewer Statistics Chart Not Showing

In the manage section of my comic, the viewer statistics chart hasn't been showing for the last few days. There is simply an empty space the same size as the supposed chart where the chart is supposed to be. The word and comments statistics still show relatively properly.
It's not wifi, because everything else loads perfectly. I'm viewing the management section on my PC, which has always shown the chart up until a few days ago. I can't remember if it directly correlates to the overall site template change.
How can I fix this problem/see my stats chart again?

It still works for me, so there's probably some other cause. Have you recently updated or switched your web browser? Are JavaScript and Flash enabled in your browser? Some browsers disable Flash by default.

What sort of blank space are you seeing? Is there any sort of placeholder, is it an empty area, or just missing, without any blank space for it? Could you perhaps post a screenshot?

Here is what it looks like right now on Firefox, and has looked like for a while. The page is completely loaded.

Oh wait. I just tried it in IE, and the chart shows.

Firefox is still not showing, though. I've disabled all privacy settings and blocks and add-ons. Is this just a Firefox thing?

Doesn't work in firefox for me either (but works in chrome). Maybe flash is outdated so firefox blocks it? You could try installing the latest version, or maybe start using IE ;P

It works in Firefox for me, but requires enabling Flash, same as it has for a long time:

Make sure you have the Flash plugin in Firefox, and that it's set to Ask to Activate or Always Activate, not Never Activate.

Okay, I've tried three different browsers at this point, all of them are not generating the chart. And unlike mckee11223's screen, mine isn't even generating the space where the chart is supposed to be. "Monthly Page Views" is directly under the Monthly Traffic section divider.

This is exactly the issue happening for me, too. I'm using Chrome.


Of course, maybe it's that there's no info to show lol

If the chart isn't showing, it's because Flash is being blocked. I'll see if I can replicate the graph using HTML instead of Flash, but it will take me some time.

Hello,

I don't know if the admins were able to fix the issue, but it started happening to me a few days ago... Except it's a little different for me. Nothing shows up at all! Until a few days ago it worked perfectly fine but now there's nothing where the chart should be, how can I fix this issue?

The same thing is happening for me too. Up until a few days ago everything worked perfectly, but now the daily/monthly graph has just disappeared from the statistics page.

Those for whom the chart isn't showing:
Has your web browser updated recently?
Have you checked to make sure that Flash is enabled in your browser? Since Flash is losing support, many browsers disable it by default, including when it was previously enabled by the user.
Have you checked that your ad blockers and script blockers allow Flash on Smackjeeves? Ad blockers may auto-update their blocklists, and these might include elements that happen to be non-ads on some sites.

Hopefully Admin can put together a Flash-free alternative to the graph though. This seems like something doable with just HTML and CSS.

Chrome is up to date, and I have flash enabled. To be sure I added smackjeeves among the "consent" websites for flash even though flash should work on all websites, and now it works! I don't have adblock on for smackjeeves so maybe there's something odd with how the chart is read, but now all is good! Thank you

I have the same problem. The graph was working few days ago, but now it's not displaying.

Last chrome version, flash enabled, no ads blockers,.. the same problem in firefox.

The code is there, but it doesn't display anything:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/ofc/js/swfobject.js"></script>
<div id="flashcontent"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var so = new SWFObject("/ofc/open-flash-chart.swf", "chart", "100%", "320", "9", "#FFFFFF");
so.addVariable("data", "http%3A%2F%2Fwww.smackjeeves.com%2Fchart-data.php%3Fid%3D169385");
so.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "sameDomain");
so.write("flashcontent");
</script>

Mine actually doesn't work, Flash isn't blocked, latest Chrome, uBlock Origin disabled. No idea what's the cause. Works in Firefox though, so a Flash issue.
