The plugin has two main modes:
Activated – If this mode is activated then the counter will be displayed on the page, otherwise, the counter will not be.
Test Mode – this mode allows only the administrator to see the counter on the frontend. The counter will not be visible to all other users. In frontend testing mode, a button is available to reset data. It can only be used in certain types of meter.
