Page views are not being recorded in 2.13.1 (elgg)


i just upgraded my website (built using the elgg social platform) and found that piwik had stopped tracking pageviews.
once i noticed this i disabled the plugin for elgg that i was previously using and manually inserted the piwik tracking code into all of my site’s pages (directly before the closing body tag). however, this did not resolve the problem and i am still not seeing any pageviews being tracked.

i have gone through the troubleshooting guide and checked everything that i imagined might be causing a problem.

has anyone got any tips here? my site is at


n.b. the elgg plugin that is listed in the list of piwik plugins that is available via is no longer present in the elgg community… the link is dead.


ah, now it is working. i forgot my browser is set to tell servers not to track me… so my hits weren’t showing up!
