How To: Piwik and NodeBB

  • @julian Not sure here is a list of the plugins we are using.

    Activated plugins:

    So I've added GA to the mix. I did that with adding it in the same custom header as to validate that my Piwik installation is not on the fritz. Comparing the two I see a little fewer unique visits between the two in piwik but almost exactly the same amount of pageviews.

    Nodebb is still off by a factor of three in unique visits and around a factor of three to ten in pageviews.

  • Did this piwik code break for anyone else on the 1.6 upgrade?


    Index 86: $(window).on('action:ajaxify.contentLoaded', function(ev, data) {
    Index 89: })();

  • @hmj v1.6.1? or v1.6.0... it may be that the piwik plugin needs updating.

    Edit: Actually, doesn't seem like there is a piwik plugin... are you just putting it in the custom HTML page?

  • @julian Yeah that code at top is put into Appearance -> Custom HTML & CSS -> Custom Header. That had worked fine until the last upgrade.

  • @hmj Are you on the develop branch? The code should still work fine in master.

    Also can you please paste the code here?

  • @julian We are on 1.6.0 and not Develop.

    Our code is almost a carbon copy of the one above in the first post.

     <!-- Piwik -->
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var _paq = _paq || [];
    (function () {
        var u = "";
        function firePiwik (data) {
            if (app && app.user && app.user.uid > 0) {
                _paq.push(['setUserId', app.user.uid.toString()]);
                _paq.push(['setCustomVariable', 1, "appUserUsername", app.user.username, "visit"]);
            _paq.push(['setDocumentTitle', document.title]);
            _paq.push(['setCustomUrl', location.href]);
            _paq.push(['appendToTrackingUrl', 'bots=1']);
    		if (data.tpl === 'search') {
    		} else {
            _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'stats/piwik.php']);
            _paq.push(['setSiteId', 1]);
        var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
        g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'stats/piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);
        $(window).on('action:ajaxify.contentLoaded', function(ev, data) {
    <noscript><p><img src="" style="border:0;" alt="" /></p></noscript>
    <!-- End Piwik Code -->
  • @hmj can you provide the result of git rev-parse HEAD? I have a feeling you're on a commit with a feature we've temporarily rolled back

  • @julian said in How To: Piwik and NodeBB:

    git rev-parse HEAD


  • Awesome , thanks for the info..

  • @julian Resurrecting an old thread, it is still relevant though.

    Since upgrading NodeBB from v1.4.5 to v1.12.1 my Piwik analytics code no longer works. It looks like @hmj had this same problem when he upgraded to v.1.6.0.

    Does anyone have suggestions on what may have changed such that this doesn't seem to work any longer?

    $(window).on('action:ajaxify.contentLoaded', function(ev, data) {

    Thank you.
