I updated from 1.1* to 2.3.0 the other day and am not too happy with the way the row evolution graph view works now.
(I’m using the german version, so excuse me if i should use incorrect english terms here.)
First I noticed that the “Durchschnittliche Generierungszeit” (average generation time?) in row evolution is now granulated to full seconds which to me makes it pretty irrelevant. I spent some time optimizing page speed recently and PIWIK row evolutions graphs where a really useful tool to monitor the overall effects - as shown by milliseconds. In full seconds its mere flatline.
I guess, this change is on purpose, but I wonder, what’s the benefit of it.
By the way I found out that the display of milliseconds still is possible, but it’s available only in multirow evolution graphs (“Entwicklung von mehreren Zeilen”).
Is there any way to get the granulation to milliseconds back generally?
Second one seems to me more of a real bug.
As best way of describing it, here’s the way to reproduce:
- Open row evolution graph
- Change the metric to display to any other than “page views”- works
- Change report timespan to - let’s say - 90 days or whatever - metric flips back to “page views” (which is a bit annoying, but now new)
- Again choose another metric - nothing happens - Firefox error console prompts "Error: No plot target specified"
I tried this in latest FF, IE, Chrome, Safari, Opera with the same result
I hope I didn’t bring up topics that where already discussed, but I didn’t find any related entries in forums or issue-tracker.
I would really appreciate any hints as I hold the row evolution graphs as well as PIWIK in general as highly effective analytic tools.
TIA & regards
