Updating Javascript Library - new traffic graphs

  1. Jason Menayan profile image61
    Jason Menayanposted 5 years ago

    Hi everyone,

    We've been involved in moving our Javascript library from 1.5 (released in January 2007) to 1.7, which should make the site run more efficiently in general. We've been testing on our staff accounts for the last few weeks in order to catch and fix bugs before we roll it out to Hubbers.

    We've now rolled it out to approx 20% of Hubbers. You'll know if your account has been moved if you take a look at a Hub's traffic graph, and the aesthetic treatment is different, like this (you can click to see the full-sized version):


    http://s4.hubimg.com/u/5670359_f248.jpg


    If you have been moved to 1.7, and you are seeing any bugs on the site, please report it in this thread. Please include the following information in your report, so we can reproduce the error on our end and fix it:

    1) what computer you're using (Mac or PC, and which version of OS you're using, like Snow Leopard for Mac, or Windows 7)
    2) what browser and version you're using (you can find the browser version by clicking on "About (Browser)" in one of the menus
    3) exactly what bug you're seeing. The more information you can provide here, the better.

    Thanks!

      I think that it is good for what you are telling on this forum; however, I don't know where I can check this traffic. Anyone can tell me?

        Go to My Account then Click on anyone of your hubs that are already published. Next to your edit button is the stats button. Click on that and then click on Total. You will see your Stats. smile

      Hi Jason,

      Ok here goes

      1- Mac OS X 10.6.8 Leopard
      2- Firefox 3.6.23
      3- In the graph legend on the bottom where it says hubpages/com  then wavegirl.hubpages.com then there is a 1/2 with a blue arrow on the right and that looks clickable - but its not. If you click nothing happens. I am only seeing this on the latest 2 published hubs.

      If you want a snap shot of it let me know. . other than that all looks great.

            Yes just the ones I published recently ie. upto 3 days old.
            But 1 hub of mine was unbublished for no fault of mine, i just replied to the mail telling them to please go through it again - it was re-published :-)
            So even that hub's got it

      I don't know if any one else has this problem or if this problem has been reported. But my newest hub is now 3 days old and it still doesn't have a graph.  I thought the first day maybe as no data is collected - no graph. But 3 days on and nothing!!

      Might be a temporary slowdown associated with the rollout. It looks like your account wasn't one that has been migrated yet, Jimmy. If graphs still don't load in a while, please let me know.

    I like that new graph in the example. Seems to show more detail.

        I had a big jump today, too. I checked Analytics and much of it came from direct Traffic. Could this be something to do with HP staff testing out this new product? Or could it be "real" traffic?

  6. Jason Menayan profile image61

    Nope, I'm pretty sure this change had nothing to do with any traffic fluctuations, but I'm glad to hear your traffic is up and hope it continues! smile

    CyclingFitnessposted 5 years ago

    Looks fantastic for my hubs so far- very impressive.

    I haven't seen a traffic spike myself in the last 24 hours or so.

    Only potential 'bug' I have is one graph for a hub where the vertical axis goes up to 80 despite max daily views being 61. Not sure you'd class it as a bug however

    1. Jason Menayan profile image61
      Jason Menayanposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      It's probably not a bug. I'm guessing that if you have a daily view count of over 60, then it shows the next gridline.

    I've no idea if I've been moved or not. Those graphs take so long to load, that I rarely manage to see them because most of the time my browser just stops trying after some minutes.

  14. Glenn Stok profile image97
    Glenn Stokposted 5 years ago

    Jason,

    I examined the new graphs on a few of my hubs. I understand they are more accurate and maybe faster loading. But the old graphs used have the color fill entirely under the line to indicate each source (Hubpages, google, yahoo, ask, etc.) and that made the source stand out clearly. The new graph just uses color coding on the line itself, with unrelated fill colors under the lines. That makes the source of the traffic not so obvious as in the old graph. 

    If the fill color was supposed to represent the source, then this is a bug because they don't match the color code examples at the bottom.

    I tested this with Firefox 7.0.1, IE 8, Safari 5.0.1 and Chrome 14.0.835.202. They all look the same. I'm using a PC with Windows XP.

    1. Jason Menayan profile image61
      Jason Menayanposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Hmmm...that shouldn't be happening. It should be like the example graph I posted: the lines and the areas beneath them should match in color, and they should match what's in the key below.

      Is there a way for you to take a screenshot so I can see what you're seeing? I'll email you now so you have my address.

      1. Glenn Stok profile image97
        Glenn Stokposted 5 years ago in reply to this

    2. rmcrayne profile image94
      rmcrayneposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I'm seeing what Glenn describes I think, but I wouldn't say the colors are totally unrelated.  I see an orchid/fuscia-like color under a burgandy line for other, a really pale green under a dark green line, light blue under dark blue line.  I see the same thing in your example Jason. 

      PC, Windows 7, Internet Explorer.

    I dont like the look of it. The traffic one under "My Profile" isnt as detailed and the way it shows Hubs being posted is higher then the graph line itself.

    Overall it does load much faster. I guess ill just get used to the new look...

      Try downloading Firefox or Chrome instead and see if this solves the problem Nell. It only takes a minute or two and Firefox works best with HP anyway.

              I said good luck for tomorrow, but I guess I should have said 'good luck for later today' really. I just live in the wrong hours I guess. Most nights lately I have not been turning in until after 05.00am, but then again, I don't have a day job right now, only my Internet stuff, which isn't enough to survive off on its own right now sad

    I am seeing some bugs with the new graph. When it is about to load the browser tab freezes and the view is stuck in Daily Views. I can't access the monthly, weekly or All time views.

      Engineering is working on this problem. In the meantime, is it possible to try using another browser? You might consider either Firefox or Chrome, both of which are free (Safari if you're on a Mac should work, too).

    All the interaction with the JavaScript Graph Builder library takes place inside the body of your HTML document, which lets you place the graph anywhere you want among regular HTML content. Once you decide where in the page you want the graph to appear, add the following lines of code:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2">
    var g = new Graph(400,300);
    </SCRIPT>
    This calls the Graph object constructor function, which creates a new Graph object that you can use to set attributes of your graph before you build it. By calling the constructor function, you've already set two properties. The first argument specifies the width (in pixels) of the graph, and the second specifies the height. The Graph object above has a width of 400 pixels and a height of 300 pixels.
    Once the Graph object has been created, you can set the style of the graph (more on that later) and add the data. The data is the actual information you wish to plot. Because of the limitations of HTML, it would be extremely difficult to graph a line graph or a pie chart. Therefore, the Graph Builder library builds only bar graphs. The data that you are entering are y-values in the order they appear in the graph (from left to right). The x-values will be assigned automatically, determined by the order the data is entered and the x-scale definition (see the Using Scales section).

    Just a small glitch that you may be able to fix, I recently published 2 hubs that I saved unpublished several months ago as I needed to write some related pages also..

    The traffic graphs for these hubs start when I first saved them, not when I published them - so they are a bit nonsense to look at - a flat zero for months and then a peak about 2mm wide - not much help as a graph..

    1. lobobrandon profile image80
      lobobrandonposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      This is how its supposed to be. It starts tracking from the time u create the hub and not publish it

      1. LeanMan profile image82
        LeanManposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        No point tracking traffic to a hub that is not published, just makes the graph difficult to see later when you do publish it...
