That should work in my case, but I'd still need to toggle between counting "everyone" (including logged-in users) and "visitors" (guests only) every time I'm testing the website myself... because the plugin's "Log views from" setting only allows those two options.
What I need (and I was very specific about this) would be an option to log views from guests (non-registered visitors) and subscribers ("subscriber role"-level registered users), ignoring myself, or even better, ignoring the "contributor role" (and up - up to the "administrator") level users. That option could be named "visitors and subscribers".
Why rush and declare this issue solved? I repeat, I'd need this feature to use your plugin in my blog because I'm using the Social Login plugin to authenticate visitors/users. They are buttons for several social networks which act as intermediary tertiary log-in pop-ups. The visitor needs to authenticate for example to be given permission to comment on posts. The first time they login using such a tertiary account, they are given a new subscriber-role-level account on the blog created automatically by that plugin, which associates it with the e-mail address belonging to the tertiary website (eg. facebook).
In PHP, I think the conditional code to check whether the logged-in user is of subscriber level and not higher would be: `current_user_can('subscriber') and !current_user_can('contributor')'. I hope this is as easily implemented as it seems. It doesn't make much sense that I start coding my own plugin or hacking into yours just to do this. There already are too many statistical plugins.
Let me know if it is possible and whether you plan to implement something like this. I'll be using the "everyone" option meanwhile.
