The plugin currently supports the following stats

You can use the following shortcode to display stats in your blog.

yes_stats shortcode can have the following attributes
type– The type of graph. The following are the allowed values.
post_num– Number of posts by year (default)
comment_num– Number of posts by year
post_avg_length– Average length of posts by year
post_totoal_length– Total length of posts by year
start_year– The first year for the graph (default: current year)
end_year– The last year for the graph (default: current year)
range– How the years should be treated. Possible values are

The simplest way to install the plugin is to use the built-in automatic plugin installer. Go to plugins -> Add New and then enter the name of the plugin to automatically install it.
If for some reason the above method doesn’t work then you can download the plugin as a zip file, extract it and then use your favourite FTP client and then upload the contents of the zip file to the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.
