How can I find the ID of a page or post?

You can find a post or page’s ID number by going to the main listing of posts or pages, and hovering over the title. You will see a link with a value of the ID in it such as “post=154”.

I checked the box to reset my statistics but it is not working, why?

You need to check the box and ensure that you click “Save” to remove the statistics (reset to 0). You then have to uncheck the box and click “Save” again to restart collecting view data.
