Hi

The visitor widget does not change when logging in/out, logging in as a different user etc

Thanks /Peter

The Visitor Widget gets its information from a cookie -- which is created when you leave a comment.

A normal visitor to the website won't login -- i.e. they don't have a username/password.

So even though you are logging in under a different user, the cookie information is still the same person from the last time you left a comment.

So, this is by design.

Hi,

When enabling the visitor info widget if you refresh the page the widget disappears? Where can I view the visitor info data?

Thanks

If you leave a comment on one of your blog posts .. the Visitor Info widget should show up for you.

The data shown in the Visitor Info widget is customized per visitor ... and calculated dynamically based on who the visitor is and what posts they have left comments on.
