Feature Request: Adding custom variables (2 posts)

    I add the following code below to my Piwik tracking code manually in header.php

            $category = get_the_category();
            if (!is_front_page() && !empty($category[1])) {
                echo '  _paq.push(["setCustomVariable", 1, "Category", "'.$category[1]->cat_name.'", "page"]);
                echo '  _paq.push(["setCustomVariable", 2, "Sub-Category", "'.$category[0]->cat_name.'", "page"]);
            elseif (!is_front_page() && !empty($category[0])) {
                echo '  _paq.push(["setCustomVariable", 1, "Category", "'.$category[0]->cat_name.'", "page"]);
            if (is_404()) {
                    echo '_paq.push([\'setDocumentTitle\', \'404/URL = \'+String(document.location.pathname+document.location.search).replace(/\//g,"%2f") + \'/From = \' + String(document.referrer).replace(/\//g,"%2f")]);';

    Basically if I'm on a post it adds the Category as CustomVariable 1 and adds a sub category as customvariable 2 if it exists. It also tracks 404's (Which wp-piwik can already do)

    What I'd like to see is this other functionality built into wp-piwik if possible, so I can track my custom variables.

    Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section!

    You can currently set custom vars per posting. Does this help? (Of course it would be nice to add different information automatically, but maybe it will work for you to add it manually until the feature is implemented.)
