Allow Vendors/Guest Authors to See Statistics for their Products and Posts

Would you like for your vendors and guest authors to see statistics on their products and posts? In this guide, we’ll show you how to get started with enabling Page Insights access for vendors and guest authors on ExactMetrics.

First, add a snippet to your WordPress. We recommend using the plugin Code Snippets to insert the following code:

add_filter( 'exactmetrics_pageinsights_author_can_view', '__return_true' );

Additionally, you may add this into your theme’s functions.php.

This snippet of code will enable a post author to be able to see stats for their own posts, as listed in the following guides:

  1. Get Started with the Page Insights Addon.
  2. See Statistics for Each Page and Post.
  3. Take Action on the Information in the Page Insights Addon.

After following those guides, as well as this one, your guest authors should be able to view Page Insights for their posts!
