This is my first question on this forum and I am also considering myself a newbie in web analytics.
I would like to verify how complex is to achieve the following solution.
I have Typo3 CMS based site with forum which is based on Xenforo.
Both are within a single domain.
I would like to track forum users on CMS sites (record chain of actions they perform while reading the articles from CMS as well as other forum threads)
Not all CMS readers are forum users
Lot’s of forum users won’t login and view articles
That brings me to the main question: How to combine user (website visitors) identities from Matomo database with forum user identities?
Please do not treat this question specific to Typo3 and Xenforo. I would like to ask a general way of solving such requirement and how much development would be required or maybe Matomo has such functionality out-of-the-box.
