first of all i want to say that i think piwik is progressing very nicely and its great that it continues to be opensource - thanks for that.
Now to my problem, i already posted it in the german section but got no response at all so i am trying again here - sorry for that.
I cant believe that not more people are stressing this issue because it remains the key aspect where google analytics is just superior to piwik - i am talking about the tracking of integrated search modules/masks, where your visitors can search for a specific topic/fact/news etc on your site. something that is very important when evaluating your site structure, how to improve layout, marketing purposes etc etc…
There is an really old ticket here: Plugin Internal search tracking - search analytics reports · Issue #5469 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub almost 3 years old, with a link to a plugin developed by a user: GitHub - BeezyT/piwik-sitesearch: SiteSearch Plugin for Piwik that is apparently doing exactly what iam looking for but i cant get it running and its seems that its discontinued - although vipsoft moved it into the incubator.
anyway, i installed it etc and when logged in into my account i can see the sitesearch tab under settings.
my search-urls look like this:
as the GET variable and “kalender” as an example for a search term.
/suche.html as “search url” and
tried really any possible combination like [sWord] as “searchparameter”
I tried really alot of different things, escaping various brackets, testing pregmatch function in a local test environment etc but i cant seem to get it working. in the end i always get the following error:
"Piwik # open source web analytics
Invalid binding name “:results"
Go to Piwik”
which does not provide any help or something i can succesfully google at all. in the process
my java knowledge is really limited and i would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction how to solve this issue. i played around with this for some hours now
thank you very much
