"Any time I can be directly responsible for one fewer site that has to warn visitors about cookies tracking them, is a few extra minutes of sleep I get that evening. And I love, love, love the inherent simplicity of Plausible"

"Iโ€™ve felt pretty gross about using Google Analytics for some time. I donโ€™t need to know what my individual visitor had for breakfastโ€“and, frankly, neither does Google"

When you get a brand new high-traffic site and your server is already maxing out 6 hours before peak load time...

๐Ÿ“ข You can now track 404 error pages directly in your Plausible dashboard.

It's simple to set up and gives you an overview of all 404s so you can fix broken links or redirect URLs.

Thanks @jeremiahlee for the contribution!
