[resolved] way to exclude favicon.ico? (2 posts)

    For some reason, the plugin is counting hits on favicon.ico in the posts count. This happens when I am working in the WordPress backend.

    Can you offer a tweak to the code to exclude favicon.ico? Or perhaps another workaround?

    Thank you very much.

    I've never seen this before but based on what you're describing it sounds like the theme may be calling the favicon as a post, rather than a file.

    If you could send me your theme files (via email for privacy) I could setup a test environment to make sure it isn't affecting other sites as well.

    Alternatively the new JetPack plugin also has a popular posts counter which could suit your needs.
