Ignoring own visits
I've followed the instructions and previous posts, setting up ACKEE_ALLOW_ORIGIN with the addresses of the websites that I'm tracking, but I can't find a way not to see my own visits. Incidentally, I'm having the same problem on Umami, despite adding IGNORE_IP. I've tried adding an IGNORE_IP line to Ackee env as well, the app loads fine, but no cigar...
I'm connecting through OpenVPN that is set up on the same server as Ackee and Umami. The IP of that server is what I'm adding to IGNORE_IP line. Could that have something to do with my issue?
Have you seen https://github.com/electerious/Ackee/issues/100 already ? Per that, you have to set
ignoreOwnVisitsmust be set to true in the tracker. Apparently, it's true by default. So, which could then mean that maybe your browser blocks third party cookies? See the comment in https://github.com/electerious/ackee-tracker#-options
@girish Thank you for the pointers!
Reading the comments on "issue 100", I started by blocking my own trackers in Adguard (seemed fun!), which results in Ackee dashboard not opening (haven't found yet how to whitelist it), and Umami dashboard opening, but also still tracking my own visits, even though in Adguard it shows a block of it every time! This was fascinating, but not productive yet...
In the end, yes, it is the browser blocking third party cookies that canceled out the (now) default ignoreOwnVisits in Ackee. I solved that by removing the browser block, using uBlock origin instead, and adding my ackee address to "trusted sites". Seems to be working!
Thank you for the quick response!
