Can't get it working with wordpress 3.0.1 (8 posts)

    The problem is, the installation file is located on my main domain on my shared hosting account. And I can't change the Base URL path of piwik installation. I didn't see any stats yet, while my website does get visitors/robots. So I'm assuming this plugin doesn't work 'yet' for wordpress 3.0, correct me if I'm wrong and how I can fix it. Thanks in advance.

    It should work. Can you paste the generated piwik code in pastebin.com and provide me with a link?

    Or reply with the url of your website, that'll do as well.

    Thanks!

    PS: I'm currently reworking the plugin to be a LOT more userfriendly. I know it's a bit crappy on that front. Expect a new release this year.

    I know why it doesn't work: because your piwik website is not available on https:// - I just found this and this makes the plugin useless because there is no way to force it to connect only on http://

    @intersol

    That's correct. The tracking code uses http for http pages and https for https pages.

    A while ago I thought about adding a 'force http' option, but I decided not to:
    The recommended solution to this problem is making the piwik.js available with https.
    http elements on https pages generally result in a popup warning box in the user's browser ('this page contains insecure items, do you want to load these items?').
    This annoys your visitors and skew your statistics.

    HI .. I just installed the plug in .. from WP Admin seems to be doing fine .. expect that I donĀ“t see any activity reported in the PIWIK dashboard ...
    When configuring th plug in I used:
    Site 1 (This is the only site I have) and the URL at the IP identified as site 1
    The first URL is blank
    and the second is /piwik/

    Piwik is installed in my /piwik directory under the host root .. Ichecked some of the pages in the blog and has added <!-- End Piwik Tag --> in the begining of the pages. is this right?

    THX

    Are you sure you're using _my_ plugin?

    It should print "piwik plugin active" in the HTML source, near the end of the body tag.

    Piwik Analytics version 1.0.2 I guess not?

    Sounds about right :-)

    Are you viewing the most recent stats in piwik? Try switch the date selector to 'today'.

    If that doesn't work: Can you give me the url of your blog? Either here, or via forwardslash.nl/contact/ - so I can check the implementation.
