FAQ

Why can’t I see page views in the Matomo backend?

Take a look at the source code of your WordPress page and make sure that the Matomo code is actually included. It will only be injected if the URL to the Matomo installation AND the page ID are set.

If it is injected you also should check if the page ID is set correctly.
