Exclude traffic from a specific IP addressIn Goolge Analytics, you can set Filter to exclude internal traffic from reports, by providing a specific IP address. How can I do the same thing here? Please advise. Thank you.

Yes you can do that, you can also set a cookie to always ignore yourself even if your IP changes.
Site prefs > IP tags/filters

The problem is that if your IP address changes from time to time (and most home connections do), and if you have 30 sites on Clicky, you have a lot of work to do to update everything.
You mentioned before that the architecture of Clicky makes it really hard to have one central list per account. Did the recent database rejiggering change that? I don't see why it would be so hard to at least have some sort of cron job to compare and copy settings from one site's settings to another.

It wouldn't be "really hard" but there would definitely be quite a bit of work involved to centralize it, since it's not setup to work like that already.
Also, the cookie feature is designed specifically for blocking people (including yourself) with dynamic IPs. You set it once and forget it.

Does the cookie work across sites? could that be made to happen? Maybe an option, like the dashboard widgets where you can zap all the dashboards to be identical in one fell swoop?
I guess in reality I don't really _need_ to have everything centralized, because the audience for different sites is different, but I do have clusters of several sites in the same niche. For instance, I have an e-commerce site in a niche where I also have a blog and a product ratings site and so on (all the sites seemingly independent), and I'd like to watch people as they go from site to site, either customers or competitors. Sometimes some activity on one site will clue me in that it's a competitor, and it would be handy to know that he is also visiting a related site I own.

Related to this: It would be nice to filter out an ip or network temporarily. I am at a college and we would like to be able to view reports with only off-campus traffic or only on-campus (or both).

For the life of me, I cannot find this in the new Clicky: Site prefs > IP tags/filters
Where is it? I need to exclude myself from traffic. Thanks!

Just to answer marks old question (in case anyone else is wondering), the cookie appears to be global. I have two sites, and now that I've installed the cookie on my browser my traffic isn't showing up on either site.

It appears that I spoke too soon. The cookie seems to be site-specific. So, if you have multiple sites you'll have to set multiple cookies. Too bad, but that's life!

The cookie is site specific, yes.
kmm3, we renamed IP tags and filters to Visitors tags and filters.
