Track usernames in Wordpress

I’m wondering if there is a way to send current logged Wordpress username to Piwik and display it beside the ip address in the stats.

I need to see which users viewed a specific pages and which users downloaded a specific files.

Is it possible to accomplish that with custom variables?

yes, simply set the custom variable and inplace of the value call the wordpress php function to get the username

Thanks Matt, this is what I did. Actually it shows the field “User” in the Visitors Log (but not in the realtime visits on dashboard), but it’s empty.

<!-- Piwik --> 
<script type="text/javascript">
var pkBaseURL = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "" : "");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + pkBaseURL + "piwik.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
</script><script type="text/javascript">
try {
var piwikTracker = Piwik.getTracker(pkBaseURL + "piwik.php", 1);
1, // Index, the number from 1 to 5 where this Custom Variable name is stored
"User", // Name, the name of the variable, for example: Gender, VisitorType
"<?php echo $user->user_firstname . ' ' .  $user->user_lastname; ?>", // Value, for example: "Male", "Female" or "new", "engaged", "customer"
"visit" // Scope of the Custom Variable, "visit" means the Custom Variable applies to the current visit
} catch( err ) {}
</script><noscript><p><img src="" style="border:0" alt="" /></p></noscript>
<!-- End Piwik Tracking Code -->

Never mind, it works! I was echoing the wrong parameter in php.

Now, I see it in the Visitors Log, is it possible to view on a page (visited pages), which users opened them?


Is the code below still working?
