Optimal Use of WP-Piwik with WordPress Networks (3 posts)

    I have a question regarding the recommended setup of your plugin to track my site networks.

    I have Piwik installed on my own website which is separate from my wp site networks.

    I'd like to have the option to view analtyics at 3 different levels:
    Assuming I have 10 networks running and 10 sites in each to monitor then I want to have the flexibility to view data at the following levels:

    1. Global view of All Networks - So that I can rate each network's performance as a whole compared to each other.
    2. Per network view - Look specifically at each network and compare site performance within the network... and
    3. Per site view - to drill into each site to review data at a highly specific level.

    Using wp-piwik, to enable this level of flexibility, do I just network activate the plugin on each network domain, or do I choose a different option?

    And in my piwik installation, do i need to register every site on each network? and how do i get the network-wide data to display as per option 1. above?

    thanks for a great plugin, I can't wait to dig in. Just want to make sure I'm doing things correctly straight away.

    appreciate your help

    You can enable WP-Piwik as a network plugin. Running in network mode, WP-Piwik will automatically create each new site in Piwik and start tracking it. But it is not intended to monitor multiple networks - it is just a plugin to add the tracking code and to show site stats to a blog's users.

    Piwik differs between the different sites, but there is some kind of an overall overview:

    But it doesn't work to see detailed overall stats, as I know. Maybe you can ask the Piwik team for help on this topic.
