We have recently added Matomo (v 4.7.1) analytics to our website and it is great.
Some words about our configuration
- The site has (example) url “mysite.com”
- Matomo is deployed as matomo subdomain (accessible only from intranet)
- matomo.js & matomo.php are available under “mysite.com/matomo/matomo.js” (php respectively)
All this works and tracks visitors.
We wanted to start experimenting with Tag Manager (container_.js is also accessible and loaded). Tried to make a simple click event (almost like in FAQ).
For it we created a new trigger and tag. For tag we had to create Matomo confiuration variable and set it in tag.
However we faced a problem that this configuration forces to set Tracking Request Target Path to the root (eg, matomo.php).
In browser Dev Tools I see event triggered and wants to send tracking information. But it sends it to /matomo.php instead of /matomo/matomo.php. And I can’t change it. I even tried to modify DB record directy, but then I get the error:
The value for the “Tracking Request Target Path” field in the “TagManager” plugin is not allowed
Is there any way to modify it? Or should I make another alias in website configuration?
