I use Mint to track the visits to this website (Hi everyone who’s come to look at the Dress a Doll pages!) and it’s a great stats package. One of the issues I’ve had recently is that I constantly delete my cookies in my day to day web development. Unfortunately Mint uses a cookie to ignore visits from the site owner. Surely there was a way of ignoring by IP address? Of course there is, ignore by IP is in the advanced preferences. But where are the advanced preferences? I couldn’t find any link or button to reach them but following the instructions in the link above, I clicked on “preferences” and then pasted “&advanced” onto the end of the URL.
