Customized Dashboard fails

Hello. I’ve searched everywhere I can think/find to search for this, but no luck. I have just installed and am messing around with piwik and liking it.
But, when I set up the dashboard with the widgets I like, the dashboard is back to the normal defaul after I navigate away or close the browser. (Firefox updated)
I’ve done the ‘set as default widget selections’ several times, even created a new dashboard and set it as default widget selection, but both were back to the same old ones after closing the browser.
Any ideas?

I know this may defeat the purpose but can you take and add one widget at a time to see if its one particle widget that is causing this issue?

I can add any one widget, and it won’t be there when I go back. I’ve tried several, but it won’t matter. I just added only one to Admins Dashboard, went to the new dashboard, added a different one, went back to Admin’s, the new one was gone, added a different one, went to the new dashboard, the newly added one was gone, added a new different one, went back to Admin’s, the newly added one was gone, went back to the new dashboard, the newly added one was gone.
I can move the original widgets around and they stay where I put them after moving from dashboard to dashboard and if I close the browser. But any added widgets disappear.
Also tried IE, same problem.

hosting infor
Apache version 2.2.22
PHP version 5.3.10
MySQL version 5.0.96-community
Architecture x86_64
Operating system linux

Have set up Admin’s dashboard as I like it, then saved it as default, then started a new dashboard using default as template, but the new dashboard has usual starting/original widgets and positions.
It is like the custom layout is not being saved at all when I click ‘set as default widget selection’

Went to GA and moved things around, works normal like always even after closing browser etc they are where I put them.

Server stats seem ok,

what if you

delete browser cache and content of /piwik/tmp/assets/?

Did browser cache of course.
There are four files in /assests/
asset manager global css, js, css delfate and js deflate.
Should I delete all four? Do I have to restore them?

If you can back them up and see what happens. I personally haven’t done it but have read some posts where similar issues were recommended. Maybe see if one of the admins can weigh in?

Can you try with a different browsers? Are the new dashboards remembered, but only the layout + widget choice is not remembered ?

Tried IE and Firefox, both do it. The new dashboard has the same problem and the Admin’s. They both forget new widgets and rearranging.

Here is the error message that I get after I change the Dashboard:

The parameter ‘layout’ isn’t set in the Request, and a default value wasn’t provided.

#0 /var/customers/webs/statistics/plugins/Dashboard/Controller.php(265): Piwik_Common::getRequestVar(‘layout’)

Hi there,
It seems this is a bug in current version (or sth like that), two other people in german forum also reported this problem. And I also cannot save dashboard.

Ok can you please send me the piwik url + login + pwd + bug details ? i will verify + find a fix. Thanks

Thanks Matt, someone opened a bug tracker ticket
I pm you login data, so you can look. Please tell me, if you don’t need them anymore.

Ok we verified the bug and will fix it in next few weeks.

Hey guys,
Is there any development in the above issue? A few weeks have passed since that particular bug was discovered. Any good news out there?

bug is fixed and avaialable in beta release:

Many thanx, Matt!
