A small bugreport… I use the option to track our visitors without cookies. But after every plugin update, Piwik starts placing cookies again. The solution to this problem is to go to the plugin backend page, and just save the settings again.
Not a big problem, but I thought I should mention it anyway.
Can yo give me some details about your configuration? Especially if you are using a blog network (and if the plugin is activated in “network mode”).
Is the “disable cookies” option still checked while Piwik is placing cookies again?
I bet you use WP-Piwik as a network plugin 😉 In this case your issue will be fixed in 0.9.7.
The disable cookies is still selected when it sets cookies again.
Using piwik url
auto config checked
User agent: Php default
Add tracking code selected
Disable cookies selected
Track 404 selected
Use js/index.php selected
Piwik default date: today
Home dashboard: 30 days chart
Piwik shortcut selected
Piwik display to administrator & editor
Please try again after updating to 0.9.7.
I hate to spoil your party, but I still have the same problem…
We appreciate your work, though!
Hmmm… I’m not able to reproduce this issue anymore. I’ll have a look at this again.
Can you describe your update process? Do you use WP’s included updater?
Did you try to reset WP-Piwik before you update?
0.9.8.1 is finished. The update should appear in some minutes – I hope this issue is solved definitely.
Sorry for my late reply… First of all, the situation here has changed. The government (Netherlands) declared that you are NOT breaking the cookie law if you place an analytics cookie and don’t share the user information with third parties. So we started to set the cookie again, which means that the problem has vanished for us…
The last time I updated and the problem surfaced I just updated using WP automatic updating process. My settings haven’t changed (see top of thread). Going to the front-end the cookie immediately showed again (using ghostery). I then went to the backend and enabled cookies, saved, disabled cookies, saved again. After that the problem was gone again.
