Support » Plugin: Seriously Simple Stats » Disable Bot Blocker?

  • I’m switching my website from WordPress to Wix, and so my podcast feed is going to have to change as well. I’m going to switch it to Anchor, but it seems the bot blocker is preventing them from importing my feed. Is there any way to work around this and allow them to import? Thanks a lot!

    Hi there. Yes you should be able to add this gist to your functions.php file to bypass the redirect method that we use for stats collection. Although in all of our experience this redirect method does not interfere with importing files from your WP based feed. But if they feel that this is holding up the works then linking directly to the media file should resolve this:

    Let us know how that goes.

    And where would I locate that file?

    This bit of code goes in your functions.php file of your theme

    I understand that. I don’t know where that file is located since Seriously Simple was added through WP and not downloaded locally.

    Hi Derek,

    The functions.php file is in your theme’s directory. So in your FTP or file manager it’s likely in wp-contents/themes/theme-folder (whatever your theme’s name is instead of ‘theme-folder’).

    Let us know if that does the trick for you.

    I added that script to my functions.php file with no joy. I updated the guys at Anchor FM, but their “engineers are still working on it.” Looks like I’m at a loss here, unless you happen to know anything else I can try.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Does this need to be in a specific part of the functions.php file? Because I just threw it in where I saw a gap in coding so I wouldn’t interfere with anything else.

    Just at the end of the functions.php file should be fine. a gap in the code shouldn’t cause any adverse effects. As long as it’s after all of the other functions and areas of code.

    So I tried to apply this code in CSS Editor just for grins and it said there were 14 errors… when I removed the quotes from ssp_episode_download_link and ssp_use_raw_audio_file_url, it dropped to 2. It seems the only red left is return $file, so I don’t know exactly what I need to do here… rereading your original post a little closer, I’m wondering if I need to replace those codes with anything… so I need to specify each episode file? I’ve got 64 episodes….
