WP SlimStat
[resolved] small feature request (7 posts)

    Can you please stop the plugin displaying its own domain as a traffic source?
    Currently 99.5% of my traffic comes from the site the plugin is installed, thus not giving me any usable information. If the blog's own domain would be excluded I could actually use the info your plugin gives me :-)

    Thanks

    That's what filters are for ;) But I see your point, and I remember you had already asked about this feature. I'll add that as an option in the settings in 2.8.3

    I know I asked about this already, just wanted to remind you again :-)

    I also understand I can use filters to solve it but why go to another tab, create a custom filter, just to remove something that doesn't make any sense or is there a reason for this that I don't see?

    Anyway, thanks for considering it :-)

    No, I meant the Filters tab under Settings ;) By the way, I just finished adding it to the code. And also "ignore users by capability" :)

    Ah, the settings filter really makes sense in this case :-)

    so "*mydomain.tld" filter would filter http://www.mydomain.tld and mydomain.tld, nice :-)

    Btw. adding the filter now, won't change the output of the stats, right? It will just apply to future stats?

    Thanks for remembering the user capability filtering feature, so I'll also remind you of another user related feature: http://screencast.com/t/n2h9gWiXO (those are all spammers; would be great if your plugin would remove them after they have been marked as spammers)

    Yes, it will not delete the existing pageviews from the db, but you can do that manually by going to Settings > Slimstat > Maintenance and using the "purge" functionality. Gee, I hate when users are so lazy That they don't even look around before asking questions ;)

    Camu, I'm not too lazy, but there is insufficient documentation or I am missing it :-)

    Purge what exactly? => http://screencast.com/t/snrGfc8L

    As far as I understand that, if I select DOMAIN EQUALS *mydomain.tld that would remove every row containing that, which would be most of the stats? If there was something like: delete rows where REFERRER EQUALS *mydomain.tld that would do the trick.
