I installed Piwik 0.4.5 and it seems to be working so far… except for one thing:
When I look at my pages with Firefox, the tracker link is fine - no icon.
When I look at my pages with IE 8 (or even IE 6), the tracker link shows a ‘red cross’ missing image icon.
Clicking on that icon to ‘view picture’ as suggested in the FAQ article does not show anything. However if I open the URL of the img tag, I can see a blank 1x1 gif image, both in IE and in Firefox.
If I cannot get rid of this issue in IE (assuming IE does not want to display the 1x1 gif for some reason) I am wondering if there is a way to conceal the icon itself.
Maybe setting ‘display:none;’ in the style ? or moving the icon outside of the frame of the page ?
Any recommendation about how to hide that icon without impacting analytics collection ?
Edit: I tried the pages with Chrome and I am getting the same result - a ‘broken image’ icon is displayed but hits are still recorded.
