[resolved] No Site added to Piwik when creating Site with empty Site Title (5 posts)

    with WP Piwik Network Activated it seems that there isn't a site being created once you add a new one in the Multisite Network Admin.

    The error message in the child-blog (subdomain) is:

    Piwik error: The requested website id = 0 couldn't be found

    Visiting the frontpage of the newly created site in logged in and logged out browsers doesn't seem to help either, neither does retroperspectively adding the site title change anything - the site doesn't seem to exist as far as Piwik is concerned.

    Any kind of ideas on how to resolve that, short of deleting the site and recreating it?

    Site name seems to be a required parameter if a new site is created by Piwik API. Maybe I can solve this by adding some kind of default value (i.e. the blog's URL). I'll keep this in mind as a major bug and will try to fix it soon.

    To solve this in your case, you should remove the WP-Piwik settings regarding this blog. If there are no settings stored, WP-Piwik tries to get the site's ID by Piwik... or it will create a new one :)

    Thanks for taking this seriously :)

    Do you have an idea which database tables/rows i'd need to look out for or even should delete?

    If you know the blog's ID (WP ID, not Piwik ID), try this to find all WP-Piwik related site-specific settings:

    SELECT * FROM wp_BLOGID_options WHERE option_name LIKE "wp-piwik_%" OR option_name LIKE "wpmu-piwik_%"

    Thanks - i've figured it out myself in the meanwhile, marking this resolved for now :) Hopefully the info is useful for others who might have the same problem :D
