Piwik Analytics


This is a basic wordpress plugin for the excellent Piwik web Analytics tool.
It adds the piwik javascript code into every page of your weblog, so
you don’t have to code PHP to add it to your templates.

It is based quite heavily on the Google Analytics wordpress plugin by Joost de

The following options are supported:

  • piwik hostname
  • piwik path
  • site ID
  • option to control download tracking
  • option to exclude the admin user (probably you)

Please note, this plugin requires a running Piwik installation somewhere under
your control. It does not include Piwik itself.
