[resolved] How do I hack the Stats plugin? (3 posts)

    My blog is all about user registrations, and I've just found out that WP.com Stats ignores ANY logged in user. I thought it was just the admin.

    There must be a way to edit the plugin's code to make it detect any logged in user that isn't the admin? Right?

    I've reported this problem to them before, but they never seem to get around to fixing it... Annoying, I know.

    Find this code:

    if ( !empty($current_user->ID) || empty($options['blog_id']) )

    Change it to this:

    if ( current_user_can('manage_options') || empty($options['blog_id']) )

    This will make it only ignore users who have the "manage_options" capability, which is generally only administrators.

    Many, many thanks Otto.
