First, I’d like to thank Jason Irwin for his original SETI Stats plugin.

This rewritten WordPress plugin displays user stats compiled from the SETI@Home project site. You can display your stats with a widget or with a snippet of PHP code.

  • Member name
  • Join date
  • URL (if applicable)
  • Total credit
  • Recent average credit
  • SETI@Home Classic workunits
  • SETI@Home Classic CPU time
  • Team membership (if applicable)
  • SETI@Home site status
  • Time of last update

You can download this plugin from WordPress.org.

After unzipping the download file, upload the folder “setihome-stats” into your “wp-content/plugins” directory.

Login to the WordPress Administration area, choose “Plugins” from the dashboard, find “SETI@Home Stats”, and click “Activate”.

Choose “Settings->SETI Options” from the main menu and enter your SETI@Home Account number and an interval period for refreshing locally cached stats.

You can also activate the SETI@Home Stats Widget using the sequence described above.

SETI@Home Stats uses a widget to display your stats on the sidebar.

You can display your stats anywhere on your blog using


You can see the plugin at work on the sidebar of this blog.

None that I know of. If you find any please let me know.

  1. Thanks for updating this plugin, Samuel. Your updates look great 🙂

  2. […] This plugin includes a widget for display on the sidebar and with a simple inclusion of get_seti_ Release page convey_url = “http%3A%2F%2Fwpstart.start-1.info%2Fnew-wordpress-plugins-01112008%2F”;convey_source […]

  4. Hey there, I’d love to give this plugin and widget a try, but when I go to the seti options, it tells me I am “not authorized to view this page”. I have set write permissions as well!

  5. Sorry, I can’t help you debug this one. All development on this plugin is suspended until after the end of the year. I’m glad so many of you are enjoying it. I will revisit this plugin once I’m able to again.

  6. Samuel, I am receiving the same error when I go to the Seti plug-in under “Settings”.The error is “not authorized to view this page”. I am using the latest WP version WordPress 2.8.4.

  7. Same with me…same error, same version of WP. Any responses to this?

  8. It’s becoming obvious to me that the text file approach to caching the SETI data is not working. In the next revision of the plugin I’ll use the database. It won’t happen before the end of the year. As I pointed out in earlier posts, I am currently deployed and it will still be a short wait before I get home and have time to revise the plugin. Until then, please be patient! I’ll get this baby running smooth … eventually.

  9. I’m wondering if an update is likely for this plugin to work with WordPress 3.0.1?

    Seems that something has been changed about the “Options” page.. because I get the error “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.” when clicking on the “SETI Options” link.

    Without some way to enter my account info, the plugin can’t get any stats for me.

  10. Zebragrrl, Thank you for reporting the error. Indeed something changed in WP that broke my plug-in. SETI@home Stats is fixed and uploaded to the WP plugin directory with the new version number of 1.0.5.

  11. Hello, I am having difficulties with your plugin in the most recent version of wordpress. I cant seem to find the widget anywhere in the widget window…

  12. Simon, I am running the latest version (3.2.1) and I am not having any problems. I visited your site and see the plugin running on your sidebar. Are you still having problems with it?

  13. This widget crushes my website with a 500 Error.

  14. Plugin working well with WordPress 3.8.2 , thank you for your work!

  15. I’m happy to see it’s still being used. I really should update that plugin. 🙂
