How to exclude Piwik visits using a cookie?

currently you can't change the cookie name for exclude a visitor
it is easily possible to set a cookie named "piwik_ignore"

solution:
let the admin choose a name for the cookie and/or path

Attachment: Adds "exclude_webmaster_cookie_name" to global.ini.php and adjusts code.
cookie_naming.patch

I honestly don't see the relavance for this. Why would one want to change the name of the cookie if it does it's work?

in google analytics you can select the cookie name (see To exclude traffic by Cookie Content)

Isn't it already called piwik_ignore?

@anonymous-piwik-user commented on May 18th 2010

yes currently it is piwik_ignore
but i want to change the name

We should make this configurable to be consistent with login_cookie_name and (visitor) cookie_name in global.ini.php.

At the same time, we should also start signing cookies as a pre-caution against anti-tracking cookies.
