    Hello,

    I have been trying to get Matomo working with my Word press site that is using an ajax theme.
    The tracking is working, I am using tag manager. But all page views are logged as the homepage instead of the page that is visited.

    I used the following code for google analytics:

    jQuery(document).on('pjax:complete', function() {
      gtag('send', 'page_view');
     });

    So changed this to:

    	
    jQuery(document).on('pjax:complete', function() {
    	window._mtm.push({'event': 'mtm.PageView'});
     });
    

    But still the page views are all tracked as the homepage, please could you help me?

  • hi @chickendipper

    Here comes a tutorial for the tracking of the ajax websites.
    https://developer.matomo.org/guides/spa-tracking

    You could also try to define a javascript variable and use it for the url in your tag. Then, in your code source, you’ll define this variable with
    _mtm.push({'variable': your_page_url});

    Kind regards

    Hi,

    I have tried everything in the spa guide before posting with no luck with showing the actual pages viewed.

    To add I did try using the normal tracking code before switching to tag manager. I only tried tag manager as I thought it may work using history change for example.

    My js knowledge isn’t great. Would it be a complex task to create a js variable to use it for the url in the tag?
    Not sure I fully understand this.

    Thank you.

    Hi @chickendipper

    No it’s easy: in matomo tag manager create a new variable of type custom javascript and called it MyPageUrl for example.
    In your page view tag replace the content of your page url by your MyPageUrl variable.
    Then, in your source code, set the content of this variable by using the following code:
    _mtm.push({'MyPageUrl': your_page_url});

    Kind regards

    Hello,

    Sorry for the delay, I did and I also tried this but still have had no luck.

    I had given up to be honest, as much as I would like to use Matomo it still tracks all page views as the index of the site unless you manually refresh while on a page.

    If there is anything else I could try please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Hi @chickendipper

    What are you not able to do?

    Hi,

    I still cannot get page views to track, every page view is the homepage when I know it is not while testing.

    I have also tried as you suggested and it still isn’t working unfortunately 🙁

    Hi @chickendipper

    Are there any chances you share with us the pages where this is not working?
    You can share them here or at wordpress@matomo.org

    Kind regards

    Hello,

    Sorry I didn’t respond, I am not going to open a new thread to re-explain the issues so I re-open this thread. 🙂

    I have sent a link to my site to wordpress@matomo.org to see if you can see any issues.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi @chickendipper

    Did you find someone to assist you?
    Can I close this topic now?

    Afraid not.

    “It’s difficult to help you as your javascript is minified.
    I would suggest you to hire a frontend developer to help you to set up the tag plan.”

    Not really looking to hire someone to use a free plugin though 🙂 I could unminify the js quite easily.

    Hi @chickendipper

    You should be able to achieve what you want if you follow our documentation.
    Sorry but setting up a tag plan is out of this support scope.

    Kind regards

    I never wanted to setup a tag plan. Never asked for you guys to setup a tag plan.
    Just wanted to use Matomo in its simple default setup?

    Looks like I will be sticking with Google Analytics.
