[resolved] exclude admin links and exclude ip list (5 posts)

    Hi there.

    Been trying your plugin and it looks just what I need: simple and effective.

    But there are some basic requirements to get accurate stats.

    First, you need to exclude monitoring apps from your visits. Like monitor.us, uptime robot, pingdom, and others. The easiest is to allow the user to enter a list of ip's to ignore. Otherwise you are counting monitoring apps as visitors.

    Second, if you exclude admin users you should also exclude admin links from the most visited links list.

    Thanks for your work!

    Also, how do you detect a bot? Do you use a list of user agents or ip's? How can we update the list?

    Thanks,
    Duarte

    Hello Duarte,

    Thank you for your comments. I'll add to the road map of the plugin your suggested features:

    * IP exclusion
    * Bot list customization
    * Admin links exclusion

    A rating and spreading the word will be highly appreciated :)
