If you are still in the phase of editing and tweaking your PHP-Nuke site while it is already online, you may find out that your frequent visits are counted just as
every other visit to your site by the statistics module. During a very productive phase, this can skew the statistics of your site quite a bit!
Contrary to what you might have expected, to prevent the statistics module from gathering hits from certain hosts, like your own one, you have to edit the header.php file, not any other file from
the modules folder.
header.php and includes/my_header.php
Do not confuse header.php, a file located in the PHP-Nuke root directory, with the my_header.php file, located under the includes directory. The former contains
standard PHP-Nuke functions for the PHP-Nuke header, the latter is there for your own, personal additions to the header.
