I generate a lot of my own traffic, because I develop on my site too. I love the look and feel of Piwik, but I need a way to ignore or exclude my own IPs. I know this feature is going to be in the v1.0 release.
Until then, I was wondering if I could remove my visits by removing their entries in the database manually? I’m thinking something like this…
Log into mysql and DELETE FROM piwik_* WHERE 188.8.131.52.
It should be pretty fast to remove those instances with just a few commands. I can run the commands before checking the stats - but may need help with the syntax.
Has anyone tried anything like this? Does anyone else have ideas or a workaround until v1.0? Maybe there’s a better, different way to remove my own visits from the output?
