[resolved] Cookie Question 0.9.0 (4 posts)

    WordPress 2.3.1 > Admin > Options > Cystats 0.9.0 > Filtering :

    If I check the box behind “Set blocker cookie:” it will put a cookie on my computer that will not record my visits to my blog?

    Is that all I need to do?

    Also, how do I get a cookie on another computer if I do not want the visits from it recorder as well?

    I do not have a static IP address so blocking my IP address will not keep my visits from messing up the stats.

    Thank you

    Yes, setting the blocker cookie will prevent cystats from tracking your visits.

    To block other visits you can add ip adresses to the block list (cystats options) or a specific user agent regular expression to the according list. Setting a cookie on other clients is not implemented (yet?). To use the block-lists you would have to use cystats 0.9.0 (Download->other versions->developement version).

    Thank you. I had already removed the stable version 0.8.9 and activated Cystats 0.9.0.

    I checked the box for “Set blocker cookie:” from my computer as well as from my wifes. However some of our visits are recorded under Admin > CyStats > Index > Last Hits.

    (Perhaps cookies need to be reset after browser is closed or computer restart? Issue?)

    I have no idea how to create a regular expression to identify our two (2) specific browser/computers to be excluded from CyStats documenting.

    Everything appears to be working great running WP-2.3.1 , K2-RC3

    Again thank you for an excellent Plug-in

    Hmmm, cookie resetting should not be necessary, the cookie expires after (Code time()+60*60*24*30 sec, thats 30 days) and clients with this cookie set should not be counted after 2 refreshs of the website. I'll look into this, thank you.

    Regular expressions: Those are php regular expressions used by the function preg_match() and can be used to identify special USER_AGENT strings (e.g. some bad robots), they are not suitable for standard browsers which all have a similar USER_AGENT string.
