Then you will be able to get your token_auth in the “API” section: General - Analytics Platform - Matomo
I’m in the same situation as Joanne. Just installed piwik on first site, now trying to setup a wp piwik plugin in my wordpress site.
If you look carefully into your answer, Matt, you will see that you refer to section FAQ 114 which states:
" You can find the token_auth by logging in Piwik, then go the page “API” by clicking on the link in the top of the screen."
Unfortunately, at this point, a new user has NEVER “logged in Piwik” and she may have no idea where to “log in Piwik”. It was NEVER discussed during the installation!?
What is the url to log in to Piwik?? This could be added into FAQ 114 or here directly, or at the end of the installation video. Or in all three places!
Just goes to show how newbies “think differently”
