Feature available in phpMyVisites. The plugin makes it easy to create a cookie so that visits by the piwik user are not registered in the piwik.php process and not counted in the statistics.

The plugin would hook during the installation process and make the cookie by default (opt out)[[Image()]]

I had a quick look at plugin;

Feedback: - html could be extracted in templates - code to create the cookie should be in an API. - instead of building your URLs manually, you can reusePiwik_Url::getCurrentQueryStringWithParametersModified( $params ) - security: creating the cookie should only be available for users with a "view" access and that are logged in.

Also ideally we would like to add this feature in the admin section of the website, with a link to create a special cookie to be excluded from all websites in this Piwik.

Unless there are reasonable use cases where someone might want to deactivate the SitesManager, I've moved #554 to the same milestone as it would be a logical extension to integrate the per-site exclusion UI into the SitesManager UI.

Note: cookie exclusion will not be possible "per website"; there will be a global cookie that would disallow tracking for all websites in the Piwik installs. we already have problems with the number of cookies (see #409). We could have a cookie that contain all website IDs to exclude, but this would not work and cause errors when the Piwik contains dozens/hundreds of websites (which is a more and more common use case that we def want to handle gracefully)

For finer grain control over which users are excluded from which websites, the IP exclusion would be the proper solution to use.

black silence: please advise if you're able to make Matt's proposed changes for the upcoming release. Your help is appreciated.

I'll do it at the same time as #43

(In [2142]) Fixes #5462 Adding cookie exclude feature in the user settings page; will exclude visits from all websites tracked in the Piwik instance.

(In [2143]) Refs #5462 anonymous user can't set the cookie (csrf protection)
