Yes, there was a bug involving that as well, which has been fixed so the referrals appear now. The bug became apparent when the author filtering was added to the page views chart (the referers already used the same code) and turns out nullable fields are still a horrible mess and need extra checks.

I don't suppose there's a way that we could see the full history of our outside referrals, rather than just the last seven days? If we haven't been seeing the real numbers that outside links directed to us, I'd like to get an idea of what they actually were.
